manic MANI MONDAY: NUDE AND NEON NAILS


null
So you won't need to go out and buy anything to create these nails.
To get the neon effect, we used highlighters instead of nail polish.

null
With a highlighter, color a small piece of computer paper.
We used 3 different colors: pink, yellow and blue.

null
Cut out the colored pieces of the paper.

 null
Cut out the paper into to tiny strips (small enough to fit on a finger nail.)

null
Coat your nails in a nude polish. We used Essie's Topless and Barefoot.

null
Paint your nail again, with a second coat, and lets the nail dry just enough to get tacky.
Place the strips on your nails in whichever order you like.

null
Push the strips down around the edges and cut them right against your nail.

null
Cover with a clear coat and done! (Well let them dry for a while, of course.)
If you like what you see...

This is just another picture to show what color the pink actually was.
It doesn't show up in the pictures very well.
P.S. To get the paper off of your nails, soak your nails in nail polish remover and then remove them like you would any other nail polish.
