Neon Brush Stroke Nail Art

Hey guys!

I have been so focused lately on swatching all of my new indie polishes that I haven't posted any nail art in a while! Well, today I have some for you!

I purchased a new clutch recently (on sale!) and it features a mix of neon pink, yellow and blue colours that mix together to form a sort of random brush stroke-y look. I was immediately inspired by the colours and the pattern, so I decided to make a nail design out of it!


As you can see, I decided to try the double accent nail that I've been seeing around nail blogs a lot lately (most notably, from Sarah of Chalkboard Nails). The back of the clutch is just the solid blue colour, so that's what I chose to do on my remaining nails.


All of the neon colours I chose are by China Glaze, and two of them are from the recent Summer Neons Collection (I really love this collection!). The blue is China Glaze Ride the Waves, the pink is China Glaze Shocking Pink and the yellow is China Glaze Sun-Kissed. I think these colours match the colours of my clutch quite well!


And here's the clutch that provided the inspiration for this design. For anyone who's wondering where I got it, it's from Spring. I really love it, especially since I got it for just a little over $10! It also comes in another mix of colours and I might just have to go back and pick that one up as well.




And here are my nails with the clutch! What do you guys think? Did I do a good job of emulating the pattern on my nails?

    1. The sales lady mentioned that there were matching heels! Sadly, I'm a complete wreck in high heels and they were all sold out anyways.
