Neon and Glow in the dark gradient nails


So I recently received a mini summer 2013 collection by Polish Me To Go which included 6 glow in the dark polishes, including 4 neon colours and two glitter toppers.

So I decided to do a gradient with two of the colours to brighten up my week.

I used ‘Mango Mania’ and ‘Strawberry Dreams’ for the gradient and then Ethereal lacquers ‘Noir’ glitter topper.

I then used Seche Vite to finish them off.
