Neon Nails


Want to know why summer is one of my favorite seasons?

Besides the warmer weather, swimming pools, beach days, and all that other good stuff, summer is my favorite season because….

COLOR: Summer is the one season that gives you an excuse to go crazy with color!

With summer just about official being here I thought I would share this simple colorful nail tutorial!

STEP 1: Start with a bright base

With any nail tutorial, first things first, always apply a base, it will make the color go on smoothly, followed by a layer or two of your favorite neon shade you own. I used a creamy bright orange from Revlon called Tangerine, perfect for this summer!

Wait about 10 minuets until it’s completly dry before moving on to the next step!

STEP 2: Add your stripes

You can add any type of stripes you want, I choose a simple thin stripe not quite in the middle of my nail, more to the outter right side of each nail! (The color I used for my stripe in Essie’s Mod Square) This is what you need a somewhat steady hand for, as long as you wipe most of the excess nail polish off the brush before applying to your nail you should be just fine!

If you just never have any luck with doing designs on nails, you can always take a piece of tape and cover the part of your nail you don’t want the stripe to be a paint the part uncovered by the tape!

Step 3: Add your top coat! 

I hope you enjoyed this nail tutorial, you can make this your own, but using any color, and then adding a stripe to each nail with another color!

Link your nail tutorail post in the comments below I would love to see them!
