Turn Up The Contrast...

A little nail art for your Mani(c) Monday!!  It's been a while since I last posted any nail art.  I like to free hand nail art but I don't think I'm that good at it...please be kind.  I started with a base of Orly Pure Porcelain, an pink tinted off white.  Orly recently re-released this color for the Dark Shadows Collection under the name Decades of Dysfunction.  Application is good for a white shade!  Two streak free coats were used.

I wanted to use super bright contrasting colors for the art so I chose Orly Charged Up (pictured), Purple Crush, and FreshOrly really seems to do neon well!  Application for this purpose was good since the formula on these shades aren't too thin.  One coat was used.
