Tropical Nail Art | Blogger Collaboration

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!
