Most the neon nails that are always popping up in this time of the year feature pinks, oranges and corals - but guys I don't like those colors at all!!! So I want to be one of the cool kids that wear neons but on my own terms . . Therefore I picked up 3 of the colors I am OK with and just did something that turned out soooooooooo kawaii *cute* that I instantly fell in love! <3
A small pro tip (that still a lot of folks don't know) neons will always shine even brighter if you use white as a base. And that tip works for any neon! So keep that in mind when attempting a neon manicure, and at the same time it saves you the neon polish. By that I mean instead of making like 5 layers for full opacity you en up with 3 ( 1 white + 2 neon) *where did all this math came from?*
I just am not that good with the classic Summer symbols this year, I had to force myself to make some mermaid nails. So even thou this here is the perfect base for a palm trees and parrots stamp I went with some cute & sweet cupcakes and stars, that I still feel look perfect for the base.
As base here I used OPI Alpine snow. The 3 neons I used are Color club Not-so-mellow yellow, Kiko 295 and Trend it up 210. The stamps are placed together but all come from the same BM-XL214 plate. The stamping polish I used is BPS Black.
