what i'm wearing mini-post! † pointy neon nails

no matter how many cute outfits i see bloggers post that use neon colors, i have never managed to get behind the trend. it's not something i can picture hanging up in my closet! :( i thought i was forever doomed to enjoy the neon craze on the sidelines...


then i put it on my nails. and now i'm addicted. it's fun and eye-catching and works as a rad accessory to any number of outfits.


the color i'm wearing here is waikiki by a brand of nail polish called island girl hawaii. it was gifted to me for my birthday, and i wasn't able to find it online.

here are a few close ones from amazon:



i love the pointy nail style as seen on lana del rey and katy perry and so on, so i've filed my nails into that shape. i chose to keep the half-moon shape where my cuticles are unpainted just to do something a little different. to get the same look you can curve a sheet of paper into a crescent shape and hold it against your nail when you paint it. it's easy to tidy up with the tip of your fingernail.

what do you guys think?
