Ever since I found proper pinking shears the other day in a craft store, they've been sitting on my desk, begging to contribute their zig-zaggy goodness. I was in the mood for something bright so I five American Apparel Neon polishes and one China Glaze and went to work.
To start, I added two coats of L.A. Girl Delicate. I wanted a white base so I wouldn't have to do a million coats of the neon. Once that and the coat of the Seche Vite were dry I cut a thin zig-zag strips of blue painters tape. I added three strips at a time, making sure each strip was the same height and spaced the same across my nails. I then added three of the colours. If you look at my thumb close up, I placed tape where the orange, green and purple are first and applied the red, yellow and blue. I added another coat of Seche Vite and did the same for the rest of my fingers. Once they were all super dry, I covered the stripes already in place and added the other colours. A final coat of Seche Vite and I'm done!
The Verdict: I'm really happy with how this came out. It's eyeball-bleedlingly bright and I even don't mind the white showing through, it reminds me of some erasers I had as a kid. Personality, you know? It's also crying out for a Pinterest-friendly infographic as it's not hard to do.... yay Rainbows!
