Digital Dozen does Childhood: China Glaze Electric Nights

I can’t believe it’s time for another Digital Dozen week! I haven’t been terribly active since the last challenge week (bad blogger! bad, bad, bad!), and I’m hoping this challenge will help get my butt in gear. I have a lot of exciting polishes to show you, coming up soon. Plus, the theme for this week is childhood, which just sounds fun! I get all nostalgic thinking about my childhood, so expect lots of silly memories this week. Today, I’ve used polishes from the new China Glaze Electric Nights collection — which are so wonderfully neon and bright! They really just make me think of the 80s, all the way, when I was a little kid and wore obnoxiously bright colors with geometric prints. I’ll have a full review of the China Glaze Electric Nights collection coming up soon, with swatches and everything! But for now, enjoy my Digital Dozen geometric 1980s nail art.

I think I never really grew out of the 80s and early 90s — I was only a little kid at the time, but those neons and bright prints just never left me! I love anything neon. It’s bright and fun and a little silly and just totally rad. See what I did there?

To get this look, I started with a base of white, which really helps the neons pop pop pop! On my ring finger and little finger, I applied one coat of China Glaze Point Me to the Party, which is a super fun glitter mix in a clear base. On my other fingers, I used all the China Glaze Electric Nights shades (except the glitters) to create a fun pattern. I topped it with Seche Vite for super shine.China Glaze Electric Nights 1980s nail art | The Dalai Lama's Nails

  • OOOOH ! This is sooooo cute. What an amazing job you’ve done, and your nails are just gorgeous. I love the “Point Me to the Party” polish and definitely will have to see if I can find some of this. Thanks for being an inspiration to us all and sharing your hints and tips. I really need encouragement at the moment, and you’ve just given it to me. I just have to try something like this as soon as I can start doing my nails again.

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      Point me to the Party is my favorite of the glitters – it’s so awesome!

      I hope you can start doing your nails again soon <3

      • Thanks for the good wishes. They are growing, but are still not very strong, so I’m just treating them with as much TLC and hoping for the best. I haven’t been able to find Point Me To The Party yet, but will keep looking. I don’t know where buy China Glaze here, except when they come up on sale on one of the “Bargain of the Day” type sites, when we can usually get them really cheap, but of course they are usually older collections, etc 🙁

  • I just love all the bright, fun colors in this mani!

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      so bright!
