Neon & Nude

31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 2 – Orange Nails

Mixing both neon and nude is really in right now, and looks so much better than you think it can! These are beyond easy to do and I just can’t stop staring at them… The nude keeps it classy/styling whilst the neon is just awesome

As you may have guessed, this is done with Scotch Tape. And added extra is that the orange I have used seems to be a matt polish, (looks it anyways), even though it says nothing about it on the bottle… (Nails Inc Neon – anyone know?)

  • Paint your nails neon-y
  • Cut strips of tape – scotch tape works best
  • Stick + restick the tape a couple of times to your hand to lose some of its sticky power
  • After the neon is definitely dry, stick tape to nail and paint nail in a nice nude shade
  • Take the tape of asap, but make sure you’ve built up enough nude to cover the neon (mine still kinda shines though…)
  • Admire

Pshiiit does a pretty epic nude and neon below, it just really pops! And seems to have quite a sporty feel to it too?
