Hello girls, wish you a very bright day ahead (or night depending on your time zones) because I have an utterly bright mani for you. It’s a no brainer I love bright colours. They make my spirit feel happy and lively. So, with the sole intention of churning out a colourful mani I took a chair to sit and take time to run through my stash trying to hunt an outrageously vivid colour combination.
But all I could think of is Neons! My imagination seemed all partially blocked. As if there were no other freaking bold colours. And just then it hit me that we are so blinded by all recent launches being neons, pastel neons , neon stamping polish, neon holos and everything neon; that Neon has becoming an extended meaning of ‘Bright, colourful, vivid’. It’s no one’s fault but if we keep getting similar inputs and visuals from all directions, very soon we develop our biases and our perception and meanings changes.
I realised something similar may have happened here. So I decided to go for an outrageously bright nail art without using neons. After some thinking I picked up ‘Enchanted’ from Sinful Colors. It’s such a beautiful aubergine colour which is so bright and intensely pigmented. It’s a true bright Blurrple. And I never used for 2 years, what a Shame!
It dried up glossy and rich. Oh Boy, it looked so luscious and vampy. I had decided to pair it with another bright yellow which is ‘Banana’ by NYX. The stamping polish is ‘Yellow’ by MDU. And the stamping plate is from UberChic Set 06-02. I am not in a self praise mode but I was blown away by the contrast and vivid colours.
Now it was just a teeny meeny little touch up I wanted on them. So I got my brightest pink neon stud which just completed the look. Finally, I succeeded in accomplishing a super bright mani without using traditional neons. It would be such a lovely combination, but I never realised. With this I have come to a conclusion, I need to experiment more of color combinations. The right pair may just be lying in front of my eyes and blinded by traditional combinations, we ruthlessly ignore them. Or is it only my case of selective vision? Share your thoughts girls, would love to read your comments on this on.
