Neon Fishtail Nails


It's been a bit cloudy around here so I did some bright nails to cheer me up. I have only done the fishtail design once before and I really liked it so I wanted to try it again.

So let's take a look at these neon nails.

Matte neon nails

I started with a white base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White plus top coat. I cut up small pieces of striping tape and set them all aside so they would be ready.

I started applying the tape in a fishtail pattern after the base was completely dry. Then with a detail brush I filled it each section with a different colored polish. I worked one nail at a time to avoid the polish from drying too quick. I removed the tape as quickly as possible and cleaned up around the nail. Applied one coat of Seche Vite top coat followed by one coat of Zoya Matte Velvet top coat to finish the look.

Here are the polishes used:

Sinful Colors 24/7 (original neon)
Fresh Paint Honeydew
Fresh Paint Guava
Zoya Matte Velvet top coat

Fresh Paint polishes can be found at Five Below stores.

Hope you all enjoyed this look. Let me know what you think of it below.
