This is the closest I’ll come to a tutorial I think. I’m not very good at explaining how I do my nails, and whenever I try nail art, I just give it a go and if it works, good, if not, I’ll a)start over b)give up and just wear one colour.
So when I saw thetutorial for gradients on the Nailasaurus, you know, the one everyone knows about, I decided I have to try. I have more or less mastered the art of sponging, which works for gradients too, but it works best with glitters.
Anyhow, I received some awesome neons and I couldn’t wait to wear them all, so I decided to actually wear them all at once. So this manicure consists of only a few neons, really, namely (from thumb to pinkie):
Sinful Colors – Irish Green
Illamasqua – Rare
China Glaze – Flip Flop Fantasy
China Glaze – Pool Party
Sinful Colors – Dream On
SpaRitual – Knowledge is Power.
I hope you got the joke! Anyhow, clean-up was annoying. I put a coat of white polish underneath the neon, to make sure it’d not take 389547423671 coats to reach opacity, and therefore cleanup was meh. It was like choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea – VNL or messy clean-up….
