Creative musings in bright colors

Dragon Eggs

Another double-Mentality post for the sake of my poor nails. I actually haven’t even gotten around to swatching the 4 remaining colors from this collection 😦 I am so lazy! Today we have the neon blue and green, and a design that ended up looking oddly like dragon eggs!

This mani features only two colors: a blue called Ravage and a green named Quash. I am always partial to neon greens, and this is no different! Look at that color!! Both Ravage and Quash took 3 coats to be opaque, but went on easy and dried fast.

This time, I applied the gradient using a make-up sponge. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a matte gradient before, but it worked pretty well! I then went ahead and added dots of whichever color I wanted. Matte dots are fun! These almost ended up looking like legos.

The kicker is, the neons are soo bright that my camera couldn’t handle them in the sun. It just freaked out and gave up. Which is why some of these photos are over-saturated. Oops!

You can pick up Ravage, Quash, or any of the other neon mattes from the Mentality Shop for $6.50 each. Enjoy!
