I love wearing bright, neon shades in the summer but I miss them in the winter. This look is a great way for you wear the bright shades you love, but winterize them! It’s incredibly easy to do and I’ve even given you a step by step guide, so it’s fool-proof! Think of it like a twist on a neon French mani!
Oh, and did I mention that FingerPaints relaunched their entire nail lacquer brand? Available in store February 1st is a completely revamped palette, and professional quality formula. Don’t worry, we kept some of your favorite shades, but now you can buy them in a better formula that is one stroke coverage, high shine, and long-wearing! We know you will be impressed!
The upgraded precision brush is also perfect for creating the straight lines and precision you need for this look.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED: FingerPaints Nail Color in Paper Mache, (white), Black Expressionism (black), Leonardo’s Lime (green), Inkblot Blue (blue), Pink Perspective (pink), Pop Art Purple (purple) and FingerPaints Top Coat in Clear.
STEP 1: Starting with your left hand, apply 1 stroke of Paper Mache along the far left side of the nail (The left when you are looking at your own hands). Repeat this step on the left side of every nail on the left hand only.
Hint: The white bottom layer is optional, but it really helps make the neon shades pop!
STEP 2: Now using the other nail colors, apply a second stroke of color on top of the white. To recreate the look in the photo follow this pattern: On the left hand, going left to right starting with your pinky, use Pop Art Purple, Pink Perspective, Inkblot Blue, Leonardo’s Lime, and a second coat of Paper Mache on your thumb. Do the opposite for your left hand.
STEP 3: Apply Black Expressionism to all nails, over the entire nail, except you want to leave a little slice of color. Think of it as a reverse french effect.
STEP 4: Use FingerPaints Top Coat in Clear to lock in nail design and make color pop!
