Summer Sponging

Looking at other blogs, I was inspired to do a sponging mani. I decided to do a neon one since it's turning into fall and I still want it to be summer! 
For this mani I used:
Sinful Colors - Neon Melon
Sinful Colors - Neon Peach
Sinful Colors - Fusion Neon(which comes out looking like Dream On)
and, China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.

 Each nail is sponged with three colors. 

 I then added four colors of crackle on top different nails
I used:
China Glaze -  Tarnished Gold (Gold)
China Glaze - Platinum Pieces (Silver)
China Glaze - Cracked Concrete (Grey)
and, China Glaze - Crushed Candy (Teal)

Tarnished Gold - My favorite nail

Orly Space Cadet

Awhile back I picked up 'It's not Rocket Science' at Sally's on clearance, but they didn't have the rest of the collection. I went home and looked up swatches and decided then that I needed the entire collection.  They are sooo pretty and sparkly :)

Just the other day while at Ulta, I spotted that they had them all! So of course, I picked up the ones I didn't have! 

This is 'Space Cadet'

 'Space Cadet' has a black/blue base with red/purple and olive green micro glitter. I based this with Nail Life, used three coats and finished this with Seche.

This reminds me of Hard Candy's 'beetle'. You can see that post here. I really like the way this changes when you move your hand, and just in general, a very nice polish. Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
