This nail art is for the Nail Crazies Unite theme of neon. I meant for it to be green and yellow, but the stamping plates I picked have very shallow etchings and even Mundo de Unas wasn’t opaque enough for the neon yellow to not turn into a bright-est green. Well, I wanted to use my last Zoya mini bottle and “Cece” that I bought around Easter so this is still a win. I kept it simple with a texture accent nail, gradient, and pattern stamping. It bothered me a little that I kept it simple even though I liked the look. Sometimes I gotta learn to give myself a break. :p
But this time I didn’t. I went back after a few days, re-painted my textured nail and added some green jelly gradient on top of “Cece”. And I added turtles. Because the nails made me do it. I know. So soon after I posted about the last time I caved and added to my nails later. However, I wore this nail art over a month ago because I was already trying to get ahead then. (fail) And this is why it doesn’t have the new photo collage format I’ve started using. I gotta limit how much I go back and re-do things. This blog already has 115 posts to its name. O.O

This is so cute! I really like the turtles added to the mani! They pop nicely against the gradient background.
