End Of Summer Neons

So I decided to send summer out with a bang (when it came to my nails at least). This will probably be my last super bright mani of the season. I for one am super glad that summer is over; I've never been a huge fan. I suppose it is in large part due to the fact that I'm so pale I'm practically translucent. I can't be out in the sun for more than 5 minutes without turning into a lobster and I only have two shades of skin...super white or super red. And I can't stand being hot (although where we live it's foggy a good portion of the summer which I kinda love). And I don't particularly love the beach although I've lived on the coast of California my whole life. As I said, just not my favorite season. But I do love the bright colors of the season and I'm really glad that neons have made their way back into the spotlight. I really love them as nail polish colors. So for this mani I used China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard, China Glaze Sun-Kissed and Pretty & Polished Valentino.
My camera could not quite capture the true colors of these; they are too bright. As with a similar mani I was inspired for the color placement by Carly of the Lacquered Lover blog. She commented on one of my Instagram pics that she thinks of it as the Carly so that is what it shall be named as far as I'm concerned.

I love the way this style of mani looks; and it's a great way to use more than one polish. And I am still completely obsessed with black and white glitters and need to get my hands on as many as I can. They look great over any color. And of course I had to make some earrings out of this combo (although they aren't quite earrings yet, I need to get some more posts). I decided to use most of my neon polishes and I absolutely love how they turned out!
Top row L-R: Sun-Kissed, I'm With The Lifeguard, Flirty Tankini

So, there ya' have last super bright mani of the season. Time to bust out the fall colors.
