Mani-c Mondays: Nude & Neon featuring Carpe Noctem, OPI, & Urban Outfitters

Two in a row, I’m on a roll. Today’s manicure is a fun summer update on a french tip featuring one of my favorite new neutrals and a couple of fun neons perfect for a heat wave! I am talking of course about Carpe Noctem Cosmetic’s Taupey Tips, a perfect neutral with a slight holo shimmer. The tips were created with OPI’s Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? and Urban Outfitter’s Wavvvy. That’s not a typo, the label really does have 3 v’s on it.

I used two layers of each polish. The pictures above are after 4-5 days and only the thumbnail is really showing wear, and surprisingly its the OPI that is chipping! It really goes to show you that indie can sometimes be not only safer, but higher quality and longer lasting than popular mainstream brands. I am always impressed with Carpe Noctem’s lasting power, and this is my first time using a polish from UO.

 

Show me your favorite nude and neon’s!
