BNB Colour Me Crazy: Neon

Tuesday, 2 September 2014

This week's theme is neon... Once again I had something in mind, but this time it didn't turn out quite as well as I'd hoped :( Ah well we live and learn, and I thought I'd share it anyway. I am pleased with the glitter tips and the negative space part, it's the black outline that I think was just that bit too much. I also decided to have a practice run at a pictorial (below) as I'm hoping to include much more of them in future nail art posts!

I started by doing two dabbed coats of glitter to the tips, followed by topcoat and then left to dry thoroughly. Next I used a dotting tool and five neon colours to dot on the hearts. Once they were completely dry I used a black nail art pen to outline them and topcoated again. That's it!

As I say I'm pleased with the idea of the glitter tips and negative space, but the hearts need some work lol! Still it's pretty cute and a bit different for me; I'm looking forward to trying it again with a different design to the hearts, maybe some florals?!

And this is my simple, practice pictorial. I think it says what it needs to but would love any feedback! If anyone gives it a try I'd love to see your efforts, you might do better than me hahaha...
