Neon camouflage manicure (BYS and Ulta3)

Another looooong gap between posts - whoops!
 
When I was housebound during the peak of our January 40+ Celsius heatwave I actually had the time to experiment and do some nail art. I knew I wanted to do something interesting with hot neons (influenced by the hot weather maybe?) and it was a case of "pinspiration" as I was inspired by a colourful Pinterest post. Lots of splashes of neon colour looked like a good idea and here's my interpretation.  Deliberately messy and lots of fun!
 
I applied overlapping splotches of neon yellow (Ulta3 - neon yellow mini), pink (Ulta3 - neon pink mini) and orange (BYS - Clowning Around) over my Sally Hansen White On base:
 
 
 
 
To give you an idea of the work in progress this is how I started out, applying the alternating neon colours initially from the base of the nail.  I almost stopped at this point - What do you think?
 
 
Until next time - I'm off to get started on last month's empties before March rolls around!

    1. This happened because I had time on my hands (pun not intended)! Pinterest can be a dangerous place sometimes ;)

    1. I couldn't believe how easy it was actually - I remember you did a nail design way more difficult! I just layered blobs of colour freehand over the white base and it came together :)

    1. Isn't it! I think a pastel version could work too!

  6. I might have stopped at the initial step as well - looks just like fresh paint rolling down the nails!
