Team GB nails.

As the Olympics draws to an end, I thought it was only right to dedicate this weeks nails to our awesome country! 
We've done so well this Olympics, and I don't know about you guys but the Olympics has definitely inspired me to go back to the gym haha!

Now, I never ever have the ability to just have plain, normal nails. They have to have something crazy about them. So did I just do normal Union Jack coloured nails!?
Urmm, no.
Multi-coloured union jack nails? Yes please.

And also, the closing ceremony is tonight. and I am CRAZY excited for the Spice Girls performance. Literally my iPod is embarrassing right now.
Childhood memories for the win.

OJ Nails. American Apparel Neon Review

Ever since the AA Neon polishes came out I've been meaning to buy them. 
I went into AA the other day and saw the orange one on sale for £3.50 so I just had to buy it, haha. SOML.

Now, I'm going to completely honest here. I usually love loud nail polishes and I'm not scared of trying out garish designs. But the American Apparel neon polish was slightly over-powering for me. It was crazy bright!! Having said that, I really want to get the yellow and purple one as I think they'd be quite pretty together with a gradient tone.

Pros:
Easy to apply, took about 2 coats.
Lasts about 4-5 days easily
Easy application, not streaky

Cons:
They are crazy bright, almost glow in the dark!
Prepare for the distraction! Haha
They did take a while to dry, which was quite frustrating






Take a look at the other neon colours American Apparel has to offer!
