Zig Zag Nails with the Maybelline New York Bleached Neons Collection

by - Friday, January 09, 2015


I have a look from the vault to share with you tonight! This was from the beginning of fall last year when I finally picked up the full Maybelline New York Bleached Neons Collection. I love how bold yet softened the shades in this collection are.

These were my "goodbye to fall!" nails and I'm excited to finally be able to share them with you. They make me think of fun and summer and the beach and the warmth - all things I definitely need to be reminded of during the chilly winter months!


I started out with a base of Essie Blanc so my colours would pop, and then I did a layer of Maybelline New York Citrus Collide. After putting down a strip of zig zag vinyls from NailVinyls I painted segments with alternating shades of Coral Heat, Day Glow Teal and Ultra Violet. Finish it all of with some neon yellow studs from Born Pretty Store and some top coat and it's done!

I remember when I wore these I couldn't stop staring at my nails. I think they lasted a good week, too! Maybe I need to pull these shades out again now to give me an energetic boost with the cold and dreary weather we've been having. I find my nails definitely inspire my mood. :)

What about you, do you like to wear neons in the off-season or just during the hotter months? 

Thanks for visiting!

    1. 90% of the time I stick to seasonal trends, but I really need to go off script more often. :) I forget how much I love neons!

  7. Love these colors together! Though I personally would have left of the studs - the zigzag pattern doesn't need anything to make it prettier!
