Spring Forward!

Spring is near - or at least it is starting to feel close, especially with daylight savings time yesterday.  This bright manicure is my way of looking ahead to the warm, sunny days to come!


For this manicure, I used shades from China Glaze's Poolside Collection, as well as Zoya Jancyn.  I painted China Glaze Pool Party on my index (2 coats), Yellow Polka Dot Bikini on my middle finger (4 coats), Kiwi Cool-ada on my ring finger (3 coats), and one coat of Zoya Jancyn topped with one coat of China Glaze Sun Worshipper on my pinkie.  Once those dried, I Konaded leopard spots using plate m64 and Konad special black polish.


My fun inspiration?  This fabulous manicure that Vanessa Hudgens wore in her recent Candies photoshoot:
(And of all the ironies, I just purchased a pair of Candies glasses today... while wearing my Candie's-inspired manicure.  Weird, huh?)


So where could you wear this sort of manicure?  What do you think of my fun, bright, colorful manicure?  Thanks for reading!

Personally, I'd wear that all summer! At least if I wasn't prone to changing my nails way too often lol. This is super cute, I love it!

This is just fab! The Poolside collex was pretty awesome. I'd rock this anytime. I would love to do this as a pedi for my trip to Cancun next month. That would be pretty hot!
