These are LOUD!! Ohmy.. I have to say this mani looks much better as a pedi! I am wearing both and I am also glad to change my mani. I think this would have been much more appropriate for the summer but I felt like doing a BAM! look. I am liking it on my toes sooo much better though. Josh affectionately called these "stripper nails". HAHA! I was thinking that these two colors would have looks a lot better together (the blue is Royal Navy by Orly) but they almost look patriotic?! I might try this again next summer with different colors.
