Today's nail art comes courtesy of Vic at Glowstars and Sam at FingerFood, both of whom are responsible for stirring up my need to throw some neon on my nails. Since I currently only own one truly fluorescent nail polish at the moment, I had to improvise a bit, but I think the results are well worth it. Still working under this month's Tri-Polish Tuesday colors of pink, blue, and yellow, I present to you this sparkly neon starburst nail art!
This required only the use of some striping tape and patience, because as we know, striping tape requires patience. Oh, it also needed polishes.
|L-R: Belle Glamour unnamed, so I'm calling it Hot Pink, LA Colors Shock, OPI DS Lapis, Pure Ice Superstar! Not pictured because again, the dumb, NYC Matte Me Crazy.|
The Hot Pink polish I received from a store-closing sale from Belle Glamour, and it wasn't yet named but it's SOO intense! Being completely uncreative as I was the past week while in editing hell, I couldn't come up with a good name for it, so...
After the base colors dried, I added Matte Me Crazy to knock the shine off. Once that was thoroughly dry, I was able to start applying my striping tape in this 8-segmented starburst pattern, which took 4 pieces of striping tape each. If I hold my tongue JUST right and the Blood Moon is waning, I can eyeball the tape pretty exactly. If not... well, I just call it abstract and move on.
Luckily my prayers to Isis were answered (the goddess, not my dog), and once the striping tape was on, I carefully applied the glittery goodness that is Lapis. Lapis came out last year in the DS Raw Granite duo from OPI, and I still just think it's absolute matte perfection. It has a mild texture to it, it dries super fast.
I hope you enjoyed this sparkly neon goodness, and I'll see ya back tomorrow! In the mean time, don't forget to check out all the other pink, yellow, and blue looks from the Nail Tarts!
