Mani-Pedi day!

After spending and hour scrubbing Punky Purple off of my toes I swore I'd leave the bright colors alone, in favor of a neat, clean manicure. [they never get it all off when I let them remove it. Neons are tough to remove, especially the darker ones, and they sort of just go over it once or twice with remover, and then attempt to file the rest off, which makes me cringe....and they still don't get it all.]

Of course once I walked in and was instructed to "pick a color", I gravitated right to the Essie neons again, and clutched Essie Punchy Pink in my hands while my eyes desperately scanned for something, anything, to divert my attention.

No such luck.

And BTW, three coats and still a smidge transparent in some areas, but I couldn't very well have her sit there all day. I'll say it again, neons are definitely not salon mani colors, IMO. They should be reserved for the privacy of your home, when you have the time and patience to expertly apply 4 or more coats to get the right opaqueness.

Neither pic looks anywhere near what the color actually looks like in daylight, but since it's almost 11PM here, that will have to wait until tomorrow.

Would it be too Motley Crue of me to make Punchy Pink my go-to toe color? I went shoe shopping after my pedi, and I love, love, LOVE the way it looks peeking out of peep-toes!
