Orly Neon Watercolor Manicure

The only thing better than one neon polish? FIVE neon polishes coming together to create this...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Orly Passion Fruit (base)
Orly Ablaze
Orly Hot Tropics
Orly Tropical Pop
Orly Va Va Voom
2 Coats Sinful Colors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

So, I talked a little bit about nail art that I wanted to do with my Orly neons. Say hello to part one... and if all goes well tonight, part two will be posted tomorrow! :)

This manicure was actually really easy in terms of nail art. Which is good, because Je ne suis pas artiste! If that applies to you as well, you'll be happy to know that you can definitely duplicate this look. (Trust me, if I can do it, you can do it!)

I started off with Orly Passion Fruit as my base. No real reason, other than the fact that it was already on my nails. (Sorry, I totally forgot to swatch it by itself! Don't worry, I'll wear it again, promise!!!) Using Ablaze, Hot Tropics, Tropical Pop, and Va Va Voom, I brushed on bits of color, sometimes allowing for dry time, occasionally blotting with a makeup sponge, and sometimes paintly immediately overtop with another shade. Lastly, I brushed on Va Va Voom near the base of each nail, and immediately added 1 coat of clear, dragging some of the pink across my nail to the tip.

And just for reference, Orly Ablaze is a coral neon with gold shimmer, Hot Tropics is a neon purple with gold shimmer, Tropical Pop is a slightly orange-leaning neon yellow, Va Va Voom is a cool neon pink, and Passion Fruit is a warm, slightly red-leaning neon pink. 

And voila! A Watercolor in Neon!!!

I'm actually kind of sad that this is only part one of two... I wasn't too sure how it would turn out, but I really like it, and have gotten some compliments! So, as much as I'll be sad to (sort of) see it go... Part two should look pretty damn cool, if all goes well... Stay tuned!!!
