NAIL ART: Pink & Yellow Neon Blobby Abstract Nails

by - July 31, 2023

I will admit that I have the sort of  brain that has some very, very specific ideas about some very specific and random things. One of those things is that July is for neon. Now, obviously, there are other occasions when I'm more than happy to bust out the neons, but there is no month other than July where they are sort of just a given. Anyway, since this is my last mani for July, I had to go with neon. And when you HAVE to go with neon, I sort of feel like you have to go with your classic neon yellow, right? Just me? Might just be me... 

Anyway, keep reading to check out the nails!

As I said, I knew I wanted to use neon yellow for this mani, but I also decided to pair it with neon pink, which is always a solid pairing, in my opinion - although admittedly, that may just be some holdovers from my very, very neon childhood. I decided for my middle two nails to do a blobby technique (very technical name, indeed) so I needed a sheer base to go along with the neons as well.

Because my nail beds are looking a bit rough right now, I wanted a sheer nude that would add a decent amount of camouflage without actually being opaque, so I went with Cirque Colors' Georgette, which is a sheer mauve pink shade that adds a surprisingly amount of camouflage to nail imperfections - on my skin tone at least, not sure if that makes a difference in how this performs. 

I started by applying two coats of each of my three base polishes to all of my nails and let those dry down before I moved onto nail art. 

For the nail art, I started by just applying blobs of the pink and yellow polishes to my middle two nails. I wanted t okeep this pretty simple and straightforward, so I just created a blobby shape with a nail art brush and then filled it in with the polish straight from the bottle. Honestly, this type of design works best, in my experience, when you don't overthink it or get too fussy when it comes to placement and shape.

For the stamping, I used this sort of... scribbly dotted image from the Whats Up Nails A026 All Lined Up Stamping Plate* to get this really sort of random sort of confetti design to the nails. I tried to place it in such a way that it would work with the blogs, although I would admit to only really having moderate success with that. I also added one little bit of the image to the outer nails just to really bring them into the design. 

Once I was happy with the design, I sealed everything in with a nail art top coat and then finished with a matte top coat to bring down the shine - there's just something about matte neon! And voila!

The neons from Bio Sculpture Canada that I used for this mani are just STUNNING. I mean, I have never met a neon yellow that applies with this much punch without an undie and it's also easy to apply and opaque in two coats. Seriously, amazing neon collection that continues to impress me. Highly recommend checking out Bio Sculpture if you haven't already.
