Nail Art Tutorial: Neon Nectar

Nail Art Tutorial: Neon Nectar

07.11.14

By niwp_admin
  • INTRODUCTION

    This mani is simple, and yet not an overdone design we’ve seen multiple times before. Take inspiration from Fariha of Nailjob and replicate this sunny look yourself. Watch the video here or scroll through the steps below.

    SLIDE 1 OF 10
  • TOOLS

    Basecoat (Orly Bonder)
    Neon Orange/Yellow (Orly Tropical Pop)
    Hot Pink (Orly Neon Heat)
    White Acrylic Paint (Orly Instant Artist Crisp White)
    Topcoat (Seche Vite Dry Fast)
    Dotting Tool

    SLIDE 2 OF 10
  • STEP 1

    Apply a base coat.

    SLIDE 3 OF 10
  • STEP 2

    Apply the pink polish on the ring finger and the orange polish on the thumb. Apply to the whole surface of the nails. On the rest of the nails, apply the orange and pink polish alternatively to only the tip of the nails, French manicure-style. I did pink on the index finger and orange on the middle and pinky.

    SLIDE 4 OF 10
  • STEP 3

    Take the white paint with a striper brush and draw a teardrop (or watermelon seed) on the nails with the French manicure.

    SLIDE 5 OF 10
  • STEP 4

    Draw two more teardrops on either side of the first teardrop (making 3 in total).

    SLIDE 6 OF 10
  • STEP 5

    Fill in the teardrops with the white. On the nails with full coverage color (thumb and ring finger), create a big dot with the dotting tool, and then several small dots around it.

    SLIDE 7 OF 10
  • STEP 6

    Connect the big dot to each of the smaller dots creating a sort of simplistic dandelion shape. Do a little more dotting and connecting on the remaining blank areas of the nail. Use your judgment in regards to spacing.

    SLIDE 8 OF 10
  • STEP 7

    Create more little dots with the pink and orange polish. Use orange dots on the pink nails and vice versa. Dot between the dandelion petal lines and underneath the teardrops. Let the paint and polish dry for at least a minute.

    SLIDE 9 OF 10
  • STEP 8

    Add top coat and you’re done! Happy summer!
