The challenge on Nail Art Nation last week was French tips. I’m not normally a fan of this style, maybe because I find it a bit boring! But I’m not sure if my natural nails are best suited to it anyway. I chose to do a Nude and Neon French Tip with a soft gradient.
After my woeful attempt at watermarbling with my pastel neons (you can click on that if you want to feel better about your own skills) I decided that I needed some neon polishes that were suitable for the job. I shopped around, and with the able assistance of my US-based polish mule, I got my digits on the Fun Days and Neon Craze collection from In The Name of Polish. I had to start with a Neon Watermarble Starburst to test them out.
I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it. It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design. I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines.
This week’s prompt on Nail Art Nation was waterfall nails. Fabiana did a great design on a beige base which you can find here. I always like to be a bit different, so I decided to start with a black base and create some Holographic Waterfall Nail Art.
