Today's post is brought to you by Cat from Cat's Adventures in Lacquer Land.
Hi all! This is Cat, from Cat's Adventures in Lacquer Land. I'm so thrilled to be doing a guest post for Steph! Imperfectly Painted is one of the polish blogs that I've followed since I first got addicted to polish. I love her warm, welcoming attitude and of course all the different polishes she showcases. So when Steph put out a call for guest posts I jumped at the chance!
For my guest post I decided to go with a polish pairing I love-- nudes and neons-- and do some nail art! I pulled out one of my all time favorite nude polishes, Essie Sand Tropez and then my American Apparel neon polishes and tried to figure out what I wanted to do. Originally I thought I would try a funky French manicure, but then I was inspired by a post over at Karine's Vernis Club and decided to go for a reverse chevron manicure using one of my favorite techniques-- tape!
In the end, I went with American Apparel Neon Red to make my chevron over Sand Tropez. I love how summery this looks with the bright red color and given the sunny weather in Seattle right now, it feels right. I like that the chervon gives a nice, but fairly subtle pop of color, even though it involves neon. It's not perfect, but given that I can't do freehand nail art at all, I love tape manicures because they're so easy to do!
Hope you guys enjoyed this post and thanks again to Steph for letting me do a guest post! If you're interested, feel free to stop by my blog, check out my Twitter (@LacquerLand) or visit me on Instagram (catray).
