'Tis the season for neon, but instead of just swiping your favorite electric hue across your nails, why not create a simple nail art design for even more impact? Instead of going for full-on neon yellow on my nails, I decided to create a reverse V-shape nail design, an edgier take on a classic moon manicure.
All you need to create this look is your favorite neon polish, tape, and a base coat (top coat is optional). I chose not to do a base color to make the neon really pop against the natural color of my nails. I started with Butter London Nail Foundation ($18) as a base coat to perfect my natural nails. It only takes a couple of minutes to dry, and then I placed two strips of tape at the tip of my nail to form the V shape. After painting on two thin coats of Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Rare ($14), I pulled off the tape while the paint was still wet. You can leave your nails as is for a matte finish, but I opted for a layer of Butter London Hardwear PD Quick Top Coat ($19) for fast-drying shine.
