Love or Lose? Summer nail trends

Summer's best nail looks have been popping up everywhere.The biggest trends I've been seeing is the so fun highlight finger and neon nails. 

I didn't want to waste the cost of a manicure on a trend that I wasn't so sure I was ready to embrace...so first thing's first-conquer the DIY manicure. My friend Lauren is great at doing her own nails and gave me a few pointers. The biggest tip she gave was to lie in bed and let your nails dry as you fall asleep at night. It has taken some practice but I seem to be making progress and saving some $$. Here is my first attempt at the neon mani:
Next up, I'm going to try the new trend of painting your ring finger different than the rest of your nails, otherwise known as the mix mani. I have reservations about this but color blocking is in so it might be worth the try. Would you rock this trend?

Super Chic!

The one glitter nail is definitely doable!

Perfect for a summer wedding!
