sweet perfection *
mckenzie jane, teenager and counting-
being ready for the world yet stuck in the same old place:
im gonna travel, surf, and live out loud.
more than the average artsy surfer chic- road trips, summer sun, beautiful waves, photography, reading, music, and fashion.

I finally bought some more summery polishes, so I wanted to create a more pastel version of the American flag, which I had attempted previously in the nail art challenge. I also wanted to try it with stars this time, something I hadn’t done before. I still need to practice them more, but seeing as I can’t even draw stars I think it’s a reasonable effort!
(REVIEW: Born Pretty Store Flurorescent Neon nail polishes: 14, 15, 16, 22)
Hello all! You are going to love what I have to show today. Look at this fun (and easy) look I created using just four neon polishes and some black striping tape! Born Pretty Store recently sent me four of their new fluorescent neon polishes to review. I saw the four colors and I knew they had to be worn all together rather than swatched on their own. Check them out:

15 is, in my opinion, a TRUE color dupe of a yellow highlighter. It is definitely bright enough to be spotted a mile away! Aside from being such a unique polish color, the best part about this yellow polish is that you need only two coats for opacity! Really - application is a dream. Love love love.
16 is a neon, apple-green polish. I’m sure there’s no such thing as a neon apple, but if one existed, it would look like 16 and I would love to have it dunked in caramel, please. Again, another beautiful color by Born Pretty Store.
22 is a milky blueberry neon goodness. Seriously, I’m sure you’re already tired from my raving for these polishes, but they deserve a very good review. The application again is easy with no streaks at all. You can achieve bottle color with just one coat of this polish.
And last, but not least, 14 is a sizzling-hot neon pink. It is much, much brighter in person than what you see in these pictures, so be sure to get yourself a bottle to experience the glory you will feel.
Overall, I am in love with these fluorescent polishes. The formula is perfect for neon polishes (opacity in just one or two coats) and they dry quickly as well. Also, they apparently glow under LED/UV lighting! I haven’t tested this out yet, but there are some cool pictures on their site.
Check out all the other colors of the fluorescent polishes here! Each bottle sells for $4.99, but with coupon code MANDIEW21, you can get 10% off your entire order + free shipping! Enjoy! :)
The nail polishes mentioned in this post were sent to me for consideration from Born Pretty Store. As always, the opinions stated are honest and my own. For more information, please see my full disclosure.

Beach nails! These were done as an entry for Daring Digit’s Beach Day nail art contest. My ideas for what I would do changed about a hundred times, but I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. :) I think the umbrella nail is kind of awkward color-wise but I really love all of my other nails, especially the starfish!
