I have seen this manicure done by so many people so many times and I love it. Getting the Models Own Ice Neon collection seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out.
I love how the stripes look like lasers in a nightclub. How cool! I also tried out a gradient on one finger to mix it up a bit!
I started by paining all my nails with a base of Barry M Matt White. I then painted my index finger with Models Own Toxic Apple, my middle finger with Models Own Bubblegum and my little finger with Models Own Luis Lemon. I also used a make up sponge to make a gradient with all three colours on my ring finger. When it had dried a bit, I painted a quick drying topcoat over all my nails – this meant that the tape I was about to stick on wouldn’t pull off the nail varnish.
Next I cut off lots of pieces of tape and stuck them randomly over my nails making sure that they were stuck down well. I then used Nails Inc Black Taxi to paint over the polish and tape on my nails so the colours was blocked out completely. Before it dried, I carefully used tweezers to pull off all the pieces of tape. Finally, after it had dried well I used a final coat of topcoat.
If you have nail tape I would really recommend you try this out. If you don’t have tape – get some!!
