Neon Geometric Nails

I was in the mood for something different this week, so I pulled out the neons.  I like neons, but I don’t really like them on me.  Still, I’ve acquired quite a few of them.  I decided to go all out and go for the neon yellow.  I have a terrible habit of putting on neons at night, loving them, and then kind of hating them the next morning in the sun.  They’re just so damn bright, even though I guess that’s the point.  So, instead of taking it off, I decided to add some designs using striping tape.  I think they turned out pretty cool (even my dad complimented them!), but I still couldn’t wear them for more than a day.  Baby steps.

The neon yellow is Nina Ultra Pro Solar Flare over white.  Once it was dry, I created the designs with striping tape and painted on Essie Power Clutch before peeling the tape off.

The thumb is my favorite, but it too soooo long! I definitely need some more striping tape practice.  I copied most of these designs from The Nailasaurus, who is ah-mazing!

What do you think of this mani?  When I have another three hours (yes, it took that long to do both hands), I will definitely try this again with different colors.

    • I got mine from bornprettystore.com. I recommend getting one dark color and one light color, because I only have black and it’s really difficult to place on darker polish colors. I know you can also find inexpensive sets with a lot of different colors on ebay and Amazon.

  1. Same problem here – I’m notoriously slow with striping tape… and my manis with it don’t end up even near what you have shown here – it’s great! 😀
