I few months back I purchased some polishes from Pipe Dream Polish. She’s absolutely famous across the indie nail polish world for her spectacular neons line. They’re spectacular for water marbling, and are bright and beautiful WITHOUT a white base coat, which is absolutely unheard of in the world of neons. Every time she does a restock of the A Night in Vegas Cremes, they sell out in less than 4 minutes. It took me weeks and weeks to get my hands on a set, and by the time I did, it was November and I wasn’t feeling too inspired by neons anymore and was much more jazzed about fall colors.
They were soooo pretty though, and I felt very guilty and ungrateful for having not used them yet, since so many other people were (and are) still trying to get their hands on them. I kept trying to work them into various manicures and I kept being dissatisfied with the results. I even tried water marbling with them, and I can confirm that they are fantastic at that! And water marbling is not my strong point, so I was extra impressed.
However, this week’s theme is dots in my 52 week Pick n Mix challenge, so I made rainbow dots! I pinned a manicure just like this a few years back, however she doesn’t have a blog or anything I can actually credit. But it is one of my most re-pinned pins!
Trying to photograph this manicure taught me that my indoor lighting set-up leaves much to be desired when it comes to correct color balance. In good news, there was just enough light outdoors for me to capture these before it was too late.
I can’t wait to do a water marble with these polishes.
Enjoy the rest of the polishes in the pick n mix challenge this week!
