Neon French! Start to finish

Wowzers - this was definitely a transformation.  These neon swirl nails were done before I left on a cruise and I immediately went out on a ship to work for 6 weeks after... so this is 7 weeks of regrowth shown in the first picture.  You can see the original set of nails in their former glory HERE.  Anyway, I decided to completely start fresh, so I broke out my drill and my Young Nails safety bit which is specifically designed to be used on hard gels and removed the gel down to the natural nail.  The 2nd picture shows my nails after removing the gel with my drill.  I used reverse application to sculpt a smile line with Young Nails cover pink and then layered first the neon gel paints in yellow and orange, followed by the neon textured glitter gels, also in yellow and orange.  I capped everything with a layer of clear sculpting gel, removed the disbursement (tacky) layer and filed them into shape.  Finally I used Konad white stamping polish and Bundle Monster plate BM21 to stamp the stars on the ring fingers and topped everything off with a gel top coat Gelish Top it Off.   As you can see, the smile lines turned out super sharp :)  These were super fun to wear too.  They were so bright and shiny, they always kept distracting me!  Let me know what you think of them!  Comments are always appreciated on the blog :)  Thanks for reading!
