It’s time for another collaboration! This months theme is tropical, I’m so excited for this one so let’s do it.
So this is the mani I created, neon gradient, one of my favourite nail looks.
As always, I’m starting with my base coat. I used Ünt Ready For TakeOff.
No matter what I’m doing with neons, I ALWAYS use a white base colour. It makes them pop. I usually use Glow Up from TwinkledT, but I’m trying out a new one as it was out of stock in the UK. This is Rainbow Connections white stamping polish.
It’s not bad, but it’s not a one coater unlike Glow Up.
Now, if you’re doing a gradient, now is not a good time for a memory lapse. (I’ve done it before.) We need liquid latex! I used Border Patrol by Girly Bits Cosmetics. I really like this one!
For the gradient I used two neons from China Glaze, the yellow isn’t really a neon but it worked perfectly.
I applied stripes of all three colours onto a latex free makeup wedge.
I did three thin layers and then peeled of my latex.
I was tempted to make this design matte, but I wanted a little bit of holo, so I added Northern Lights holographic top coat by INM.
On my ring finger used a little “aloha” water decal.
On the rest of my nails I stamped black palm trees. I used this stamping plate from Born Pretty.
For my black stamping polish I used Liquid Leather by China Glaze.
And finally, I topped it all off with a nice thick coat of Air Dry by CND.
So that was this months blogger collaboration!
