Today on the blog, I have my monthly mani swap to share with you. I adore how these turned out! I was paired with @crooked_mani over on Instagram. If you're not following her, you totally should be!

Right away when I was paired with her, I knew that I would choose her neon lead light mani because hello? Isn't is perfection? I love that she chose a bright neon mani to recreate as well. Great minds! Here's a solo shot of mine:

I started with a white base of Orly White Tips and stamped over it with Zoya Willa using UberChic plate 3-03. I topcoated with Seche Vite and allowed it to dry to protect my stamping from smearing. Once it was dry, I set in with my jellies and a tiny dotting tool and carefully filled in the image with different colors. I only did the four nails you see here and it took me just over an hour! Worth it! I topcoated again to protect the design. My only regret is that I didn't use a blacker polish for stamping. My go to, holy grail black stamping polish is by Funky Fingers, called Black Knight. I had run out but wanted to get my swap mani done. Next time I do a design like this, I will definitely use the Black Knight.
I so love doing mani swaps and look forward to doing so monthly. Do you like mani swaps? I feel like they better me as a nail artist and push me to do things I wouldn't have normally tried otherwise.
Thank you for reading!
