Mani of the week: Neon+Neutral
Hey everyone, this week i'm sporting a Neon+Neutral mani on my nails. A while ago i made myself a promise - to try something i've never done before on my nails ever so often, just for the sake of broadening my perspective. This week's mani has 3 features i've never tried before:
1. Neon nail polish. Yes, seriously. First time.
2. Nail stud charms. Was dying to try, and finally i have.
3. Mix and match nails. Well, not totally, but all nails are somewhat different. Being a nail control freak myself, that was a tough one to overcome. But i'm surprised how much i enjoyed it! :)
Now to the how-to's. I used my all-time fave neutral Essie Topless and Barefoot as a base color. Then (from the thumb forward) i used:
to create an angular French tip (which was super-easy by the way). Then i used silver doughnut-shaped studs from our stud wheel and placed a matching color 2mm rhinestone in the centre to complete the look. I used nail art glue to hold them down. I finished it off with UV soak-off gel top coat, something i normally do with my nail art to get more wear. And that's it!
These are fresh, happy and youthful nails that i really enjoy wearing!
Hope you enjoyed the look and talk to you soon,
