China Glaze Summer Neons "Hang-Ten Toes" with Black Stars

I somehow missed "Hang-Ten Toes" when I picked up my other China Glaze Summer Neons (see them here).  I think maybe my store was out of it at the time and I never noticed until yesterday that I was missing it!

I also picked up some of these black hologram stars nail "sprinkles".  They are really cute and easy to use.  I thought they'd go great with "Hang-ten Toes":


I picked them out of the jar with an orangewood stick and placed them in the cap so I could see what I was working with.  

I did one layer of 'Hang-ten' on all my nails.  Then, I went back one nail at a time with the second layer.  After I did the second layer, I'd place the stars where I wanted while the layer was still wet; then I'd move on  to the next nail, etc.  I found using a little pressure with the orangewood stick in the cap of the jar allowed me to pick up the stars and place them easily.  Afterwards, I did 2 layers of Cult  Nails "Wicked Fast" top coat to make everything smooth:




I absolutely love the shimmer in these China Glaze Summer Neons- they make them totally juicy looking and wearable.
What do you think?

    1. They're not as bad as I thought they'd be- they feel like gritty glitter. If I didn't think this was a cute manicure, I'd rip them off in 2 seconds flat! :D
