Neon & Negative Space

By  |

Summer is here in Northeast Ohio!!  It has been so super hot here – and quite honestly, I think it’s miserable!  When did I become a cold weather soul?!  It’s supposed to be cooler this week, so I’m going to soak that up and enjoy it.  In the meantime, these super neon summer nails are the perfect balance to what’s going on outside☀

These nails are super simple to do – all you need is polish and striping tape.  I was actually able to do the entire manicure during Millie’s nap time, so that proves to you that they were quick to do!  I applied my base coat, let it dry completely, and then applied two pieces of striping tape to each nail.    Then, I polished each nail in KBShimmer Bahama Drama.  I did two coats, removing the tape after the second coat.  Then I sealed everything in with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.  I wanted my free edge to show through the racing stripes – and I love how that turned out!

Quick – and super fun.  With the magic of KBShimmer Clearly On Top, everything dried super quickly so I was right back to mommin’ once Millie woke up and I wore this for almost two weeks!  I’d love to do a similar manicure, but with a different neon shade on each nail or a gradient on each nail.  What do you think?  What colors would be great for summer?
