I'm back today with some nail art that is a little more typical for my brand of art ;) In short - MoYou London, tribal-esque, and neon. Yeah typical and right up my alley a bit different from my last delicate mani with the 3D placement. Where the last was soft this one is bold and right in your face lots of gradient power and eye grabbing color. This time around I also took my new AliExpress "Clear Jelly Stamper" out for a spin. I'll have some more thoughts on it coming up in a future post since I haven't had a chance to test it under all conditions yet. I will say this however so far I actually find it easier to do placement mani's without it than with. Lol go figure.
Depressed you can't get your hands on the Pipe Dream Polish ANIV Collection now that it's been discontinued? Don't be. I've said it before there are a lot of awesome equivalent neons out there one set that's featured heavily today - China Glaze's Electric Nights Collection. It has a strong color intensity and watermarbles beautifully.
See lots of color intensity! Below is the tutorial go give it a thumbs up on Youtube and if you haven't already subscribe to my channel. As you can see I'm putting up videos pretty regularly these days :)

Btw what is this around my cuticles!?! I know for those who follow me on Instagram you are probably thinking wth?!? I know I said it there that horrible swelling dying epinephrine requiring allergy in response to latex. Where did it go? Lol don't worry its still there. That gloop is my own peel off nail barrier that I've been working on. Not to sell, but because I'm so jealous of the latex barrier users and alternatives out on the market is, in my opinion, woefully overpriced or not very useful at all. It's not perfected but slowly getting there.
Honestly I'm so thrilled with how this came out! Its seasonally not on scheme with the neons, but really who cares? The winter has been disturbingly warm anyway!
And as usual my quest for a variety of hand poses and perspectives continues. It's harder than it looks!
So what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Wishing for more wintery looks? I will try, but honestly I'm not feeling it. Its like once I bumped based December I was ready to just do whatever. Let me see if I can rev myself up for Valentines Day lol ;) In the interim I'll be sharing more reviews with you including for the Clear Jelly Stamper I purchased. In any case thanks for reading and I'll see you next post.
