Smooshed neons

This has been such a bad week... People have been sick, people have been off, I've been working myself sick (yes I now have a cold), I have two nails that are tearing and I haven't had anytime to do my nails! Now that is just freaking sad. And I've been feeling like a popsicle. Work is the worst place to be in this weather. People leave the door open, want hulle is in 'n stal gebore (they were born in a barn) and all the cold air comes inside. Rant over, sort of.

While I was swatching the Hean neons I was thinking of something to do with them and I went completely blank. So I just decided to do a smoosh mani. It's one of those things that you just can't mess up. Because it is a mess.
I used City Fashion white as a base. I then blobbed 890, 891, 892, 893 & 895 randomly on my nails and smooshed it. I somehow missed 894, it was obviously hiding somewhere.
I like how this turned out. Some places it almost looks like smoke, well besides the colour... What do you think? Yes, no, maybe?
I don't know if I'm going to be swatching the Pastel collection anytime soon with my nails tearing. It's almost like I have two or three months of good nails then they tear, another month or so to grow back and so the cycle goes. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm so sorry for you... I hope you feel better soon!
    Your nails look great though, I love the combination of colors. It would probably be good as a base for stamping as well (hint hint ;)

    1. I should have thought of that. Thanks though 😘
