NAILS | The Neon Dotticure #CBBxManiMonday

I don't often get a lot of Mondays off and I have mixed feelings about it because on the one hand I can sit back and watch everyone else go crazy Monday morning, BUT that means my email inbox will be very full when I go back on Tuesday! I do work with a good management team so nothing will blow up or anything, but because I have now made it a point of NOT checking my work emails on days off, that means I still have to clean out my inbox since I only have 500MB of space in it (CRAZY!).

Today's CBB ManiMonday theme is "Neon" and though I don't own a whackload of neon shades, I own enough to create a few basic traditional summer manicures because even though I have always said that nail polish colours know no season, I do feel a bit out of place wearing a neon manicure in November.

While looking for neon manicures to try out, I came across French nail artist @melynenailart and this dotticure design. I originally found the design on Pinterest which did not list the shades of polishes used, but oddly enough when I went to her Instagram profile and found the design she had also used the Cirque Colors Vice Collection for her work so at least I know I chose my shades well!

Base: Sally Hansen x Crayola Insta-Dri in White*
Dots: Cirque Colors in Kushy*, Cirque Colors in Extra*, Cirque Colors in Game Over*, Quo by Orly Summer Bisou*, China Glaze in Too Yacht to Handle and Essence Colour to Go in Black is Back*

I followed Julie's tutorial and emerged with what you see here! It has been really hot here in Vancouver so I really made sure my dots were dry before I plonked on my top coat.

I hope everyone is having a happy Monday and staying cool!
