Summer Neon Geometric Nails

Hi, everyone! I’m a little behind on posts due to a flurry of musical activity on this end, but I’m hoping to catch up on things soon!

Today’s nail art tries to capture the essence of summer with some bright neon colors and bold geometric shapes. To begin, I painted my nails white using a color simply called White Base Coat from Sephora by OPI.

White Base Coat from Sephora by OPI provides a simple white backdrop that is perfect for making neon colors pop.

To do the geometric design, I used plate BP-L070 from Born Pretty Store for the basic pattern.

For this manicure, I used the design on the far right side of the middle row.

Using a clear stamper, I stamped the pattern with Ya Qin An stamping polish in Black, then I colored in the design with various shades from the Sephora by OPI Neon Lights collection. I chose a pink, orange and yellow shade so when I colored in the pattern, I chose to have pink and yellow stripes with the intersecting parts being orange.

The colors used are all from the Sephora by OPI Neon Lights collection. Pink is Glowing Somewhere?, orange is I’m So Vivid With You!, and yellow is Mega-Watt’s Your Deal?

I decided to stamp these zig-zag patterns close to my cuticles, and I alternated the color placement on each nail to make it look more continuous.

All done!

It was pretty easy to make this nail art, and it definitely looks fun for summer! Hope you enjoyed it!

Happy polishing!
