Look who’s back with another post (as usual, right?) I’ve been slacking on my blogging this month, so I’m a bit behind on challenge manicures which means that the next couple of days *should* be jam packed with posts and cool nails! Like today! Because it’s the last day to post a neon manicure for the Hobby Polish Bloggers‘ link up and I wouldn’t dare miss one of these.
So, enough talking. Onto the nails!
I know what you’re thinking, “the Parallax Polish neons again! This is like your third post this week that they’re in. Hashtag ugh!” Okay, maybe, not hashtag ugh haha, but oh well. The theme was neon, and these were on my desk so the choice was obvious. You can check out this post for swatches and this one for more nail art!
2. Then using the distressed brushstroke technique, add on the other polishes.
3. Once your base is dry, use a detail brush and acrylic paint to add on the geometric shapes.
4. Clean up.
5. Add a layer of Glossy Glam.
This collection of illustrations (and food? Not quite sure why there are cupcakes included in there…..weird) was my original inspiration for these nails. But, I realized that I didn’t have any make up sponges to create a softer background so I improvised. I’m still pretty stoked about how they came out!
Also, I recently bought myself a macro lens for my phone. So, now I can take close ups of my nails to share with you all because I know that’s exactly what you all wanted! Christmas came early, woo! Bear with me though while I try and figure this thing out haha. I’m naturally a pretty shaky person, and combining that with a lot of coffee and a lack of sleep makes it really hard to hold steady. For this being one of the first photos I took with it, I’m happy!
