Neon Gradient with Chevron

Here is a nice summer neon look.

How to achieve this look:

1. Start by applying your base coat, I used Essie All in One.

2. Apply a white base to help your neon colors pop.

3. Add tape or a liquid tape around the nails you plan to do your gradient to help reduce clean up. I used Liquid Latex.

4. When your white dries completely apply your chevron nail vinyls to the desired nails (I did my pointer and ring fingers).

5. Use a makeup sponge to apply the two color gradient over the vinyls.

6. Remove the vinyls and tape.

7. Add your polish on the other nails, I chose to use a glitter topper on my middle finger and pink on my pinky.

8. With a small brush and acetone clean around your cuticles. I use the Kolinksy French Nail Brush #12.

9. Apply a top coat, I used NYC Grand Central Station.

I did this mani as part of a mani swap with @AdventuresinPolish on IG. She recreated my violet stamped nails from the 31 day challenge.

This Mani was done with polishes from the China Glaze Electric Nights collection that I purchased.
