Hi everyone. This week I wanted to do something bright and fun (but still quick) as the sun has been shining all week!
The design was inspired by NailsbyMiri (YouTube) and you can find her original design here: https://youtu.be/slg2KFeTWmI. To give it a go you’ll need a white polish for your base, three neon polishes, and a clean drinking straw.
I’ve used Technic’s White for my base, and Mimosa, Electro, and Flamingo from the Party Brights collection for my neons.
Tip: this is really messy, so make sure you put down plenty of paper towels or news paper to stop the polish getting everywhere. Also put some tape around your nails, or like me, Vaseline around nails/fingers to make it easier to clean the excess polish off. Have some cotton buds and nail polish remover handy for this!
Step 1: paint your nails with two coats of white polish and let them dry.
Step 2: starting with the lightest of your polishes, dip the straw into the polish bottle to pick up some polish.
Step 3: hold the straw a few inches away from each nail and blow to spray the polish over it (repeat steps 2/3 for each nail).
Step 4: cut the polish covered end of the straw off and repeat steps 2 and 3 for your second colour.
Step 5: and again for your third colour (see what I mean about the mess!).
Step 6: while the polish is drying, use your cotton buds and nail polish remover to clean all the polish off your fingers.
Step 7: use a thin brush and polish remover to clean up any polish around the edges of your nails and cuticles, apply topcoat, and you’re done!
I really hope you liked this design, and give it a go too. Despite the mess it’s still quick and easy, and looks great in the sunshine!
