Neon gradient pattern nails for summah

Oh hey there people who actually read my blog! I've been sick all week so that's my excuse for no posts (I dunno what my excuse is for every other week before this though... crap). But here, have some neon! This week's weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) that I co-host on Instagram along with lovely ladies Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey is neon + tribal. So I went with my strange interpretation of the theme as always.

My most important discovery during this neon adventure was how awesome Models Own 'polish for tans' polishes are!! They are are super neon and they were completely opaque after one coat of SPONGING!!! Which is like amazing, cause if you recall in my Peel Off Face Off video where I used Color Club pastel neons, it took me 4-5 coats of sponging to get the gradient opaque. I highly recommend these Models Own neons, they are amazeeeeballllls.

  1. I really hate how brilliant you are! Lol no actually I super love you. I was supposed to get these neons in a swap with my friend ages ago you just reminded me of why I need to hurry up and finish so we can exchange! Sorry you're not feeling that hot :/ Can I ask how you get your youtube videos so large on your blog posts? When I do them through the blogger add a video I always get this incredibly tiny window and and it sucks :/

    1. Thank you!! I actually don't add it through the blogger add a video feature, after I publish it on YouTube there's a Share button, then Embed, and it gives you a code to copy. I paste that code in the html text of my blog post and tada! Another way if you're not embedding from YT is when you upload through the blogger feature, edit the blog post in html, and notice the video size numbers (might be something like 200? 300?) just change them proportionally bigger. So if it's 350x200 then you might want to try making it say "600" and "343". Then click back to non-html editor and you'll see the new size. This won't help with quality, it'll just stretch the existing quality. Hope this helps :)

  2. You are too good! I love your style
