Neon nails how to

neon nails, neon nail art, nail polish trend

While neon is one of the major nail polish trends at the moment, but the actual neon enamel is a little bit tricky: when applied straight on nails it does not come up as glowing and clear as you would imagine. It required a little bit of experimenting with the newly acquired Yellow Neon by Americal Apparel to come up with the desired (striking fluoro) result. Now I’m sharing with you lovelies that little yet ‘life changing‘ trick.

1. Apply two coats of white nail polish on each nail and let it dry.

2. Apply one coat of neon nail polish over white nail polish, allow sufficient amount of time for your manicure to dry.

 All done!

I drew a little smiley face on one nail just as a reminder to myself: Happiness is something we create ourselves.

I will of course credit your blog as the source and if there’s anything else I can do to properly credit you and drive more readers to your site, I would be happy to do so. Thanks!!
