Bright Hibiscus Nails

These were the nails I was sporting last weekend at Indie Expo Canada 2019!  I did them on Friday night and ended up wearing them until Monday night because I either had no time to change them or was too tired!  I love how bright and vibrant they were!  It was too bad we had so much rain last weekend but at least my nails were bright!  Here's what I came up with!

I didn't start these nails until around 1 am so while I initially wanted to do a gradient, I decided to do something quick so went with a stamper smooshy base of Fancy Gloss Neon Yellow, Neon Pink, Neon Orange and Neon Orange-Yellow.  The great thing about these neons is that no base polish is needed so I stamp these directly on my clear base coat.  And this is one stamper smoosh and it did all the nails (probably because I use too much polish) but because the polish is so opaque, I don't have to layer and layer to cover thin spots.  This method is quick for me so I use it when I want an interesting base but no time.

Stamped using an image from UberChic UC 7-01 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.

If you attended Indie Expo Canada 2019, I hope you had a fantastic time!  It was wonderful to see polish friends from past events and meet new ones!  And shop.  Like, weren't we all there for that?  Let's just say from the crowds and haul pix that it's pretty clear that indie polish is still thriving in Canada!  

If you weren't able to attend and want to live vicariously through me, my IEC 2019 posts will be shared over the next couple weeks!  

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking!


  1. Beautifully done. I love this mani.

  2. I literally gasped when I saw your manicure in my feed... I want something like this on my nails, right now! (which might be slightly problematic as I'm at work at the moment... lunch breaks are great for browsing nails ;)

    1. Well I'm glad my nails gave you some inspiration!
