Here we have the Neon on Nude How To, as promised over on Facebook. You'll see how absolutely simple this look is to achieve and hopefully give it a shot yourself.
Step 1: What you'll need:
- Polishes = bronze, nude, 2 brights and a white
- Dotting tool (a hair clip/bobby pin or opened paperclip will suffice)
- A paperclip for larger petals (optional)
- A matte topcoat
Step 2: Start with two coats of your base colour (Sally Hansen Café Au Lait for me)
Step 3: Using your dotting tool, place your bronze (Angelica Heirloom) flower centres on your nail beds. I went with a mixture of numbers on each to make a unique pattern.
Step 4: Again with the cleaned dotting tool, start to place small dots around each of your green flowers (Essence Lime Up).
Step 5: Using both the dotting tool and a paper clip repeat Step 4 using your second bright colour (China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy). The paperclip creates larger petals as needed.
Step 6: With the dotting tool place white (Seche Porcelain) dots on the outline of the flowers. This will be a random design, depending on the size of your petals but aim for curves. A swish of matte topcoat (H&M) and you're done!
As you can see from the header picture, the designs of my flowers and petals are in no way perfect and I think that adds to the charm of this mani.
Just be sure that your choice of colours are a bright contrast to your base colour and you really can't go wrong.
