Since it was so highly requested, today I have a tutorial for my recent neon drips nail art design. The design is actually rather simple and I think that people of any nail art skill level will be able to achieve this look!
For my design, I used a combination of two neon colours, but this mani is completely versatile. You can use just one colour for your drips, or you could use five - use your imagination!
I've included the exact brands/names of the polishes I used, but you can use whatever brands/shades you have in your stash.
- Base coat (CND Stickey)
- Top Coat (Seche Vite)
- White creme polish (China Glaze White on White)
- 2 neon polishes of your choice (China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and Turned Up Turquoise)
- A small detail brush
Apply your base coat.
Using your detail brush, outline some rounded, drip-like shapes at the tip of your nail. The trick is to make it so that the shapes start out sort of thin, but then become sort of bulbous-shaped at the end.
Fill in the space you just created. If you're using neon colours, you might need to go over that one more time since neons tend to be on the sheer side.
If you have enough room left, draw one or two "drops" coming down from the drips. I didn't do this on all of my nails, only the ones that I thought could use a little more drippyness.
After allowing your design to dry completely, add a layer of your favorite top coat. This will make your new mani last longer, it will smooth out any bumps and ridges that have been created during the process, and it will also give your nails a nice shine.
As always, I hope this tutorial was helpful and I hope some of you will try this design out for yourselves. And I'd love to see pictures if you try it!
