Neon Geometric Nail Art

Hey guys!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love neon polishes? Because I really, really love neon polishes! They generally don't look as good against my skin colour (pasty white) as they would against a more tanned complexion, but frankly, I don't care! I love neons so I'm going to wear them regardless!

So today I decided to do a geometric pattern using a few neon shades from both China Glaze and Colour Club (the two brands who do neons best, in my opinion). And China Glaze is coming out with a 12 piece neon summer collection soon so that's definitely going to be hard for me to resist!

I can't take credit for this design though because I saw it on tumblr a while ago. Sadly, I didn't save the photo or bookmark the page so if anyone knows who I should credit for this design, please let me know.

Enjoy!

  2. This is a great design and it looks great on you, even with your "pasty" white skin! :) Did you tape off each section or all freehand?

    I saw it here, but I don't know if it helps, because I don't know if this design was her idea :)

  11. This looks awesome, it almost looks like it should be nail strips and not something you did by hand it's perfect.

  13. Very cool! And my local supply place already had the new ChG neons for sale....they are just slightly different enough from the ones already released that of course you need at least a few of them!

  14. Wow, you are amazingly good at freehand. I know if I tried to do this mani that it'd go all squiggly.

  15. I look at this design and Picasso's paintings come to my mind, maybe because of the shapes. The colors are amazing, love them!
