So when I thought about Summer Lovin' I automatically thought about Grease lol but that's too hard for me to do. So then I just thought about summer, and of course palm trees, and beaches came to mind. But then I thought neons! Neons are so in during the summer and it worked out perfectly cause I was already doing a neon mani to post on instagram. I really loved how my dry watermarble came out, but since I only did it on two of my nails, I decided to do a full mani with it. I even have a pictorial for you!
I absolutely love this technique! It is perfect for summer! It kinda has a tie dye look to it! And what's best is that it's super easy to do! And all you need to make this is a plastic baggie, like a Ziploc bag...and of course the neon polishes.
Here's what I used:
<-- Colors used are:
Island girl Aloha Color, Color Club Chelsea Girl and Poptastic
Pre-cut baggie squares ---->
First, what you want to do is apply a base coat. Then, apply a white base coat to help the neon really pop:
Then, once you have everything ready, like your pre-cut squares, make sure to have all your bottles open to easily apply drops of each polish. Make sure to let the white base dry completely though!
Apply drops of polish randomly on your nail, they can overlap if you want.
Then quickly grab your square and gently place it on top of your nail like so:
|Sorry about the glare|
Then gently dab your nail on top of the plastic to gently spread out the polish. Don't over due it though or else it'll mix too much and then you won't be able to tell the colors apart. Then gently lift the baggie to see your design:
As you can see, mine has more blue because the polish I put on top was blue, so apply it according to what color you want to show more. Also, as you can see, some of the white can be seen but you can easily fix that. What I do is use the same brush that comes with the polish and try to remove as much polish that I can from the brush. And then gently dab the brush along the exposed white base.
This time I chose to cover it with pink because there isn't much on my nail.
So what do you guys think? I hope you guys like it! Here's the full mani again:
I really hope you guys enjoyed my frist Twinsie Tuesday post! Stay tuned for some Jindie Nails spam tomorrow, but in the meanwhile, check out what the rest of the girls did for this weeks prompt below.
