Today I have the 1st nail art mani to show on the blog. It's neon gradient nails using Orly's Baked Collection and topped with China Glaze's Fairy Dust. It's my 1st time doing a gradient and I think it came out very well. I used The Nailasaurus Video Tutorial (here's the original picture tutorial).

The colors I used are from the Orly Baked Collection. I really like these, very bright with just two coats. I used Neon Heat (bright hot pink) as the base color.

My gradient colors were Ablaze on the bottom.

And Hot Tropics for the tips.

Then it all got topped off with Fairy Dust!

I'm also trying out a more rounded nail shape in hopes of making them look more even since they keep splitting on the sides. Also, notice I'm trying out new watermark shapes, what do you think of the curved ones instead of the long one with the blog name?

  1. beautiful neon gradient! I love Fairy Dust over gradients... actually I love it over anything really lol

    I really like the look of the curved watermark! It's also a good idea since it is harder to crop out/blur/cover up... I've noticed so many stolen images especially from annoying little kids on instagram! don't know why there is a need to steal images rather than just credit sheesh

  3. Love this! I have Hot Tropics already, but you're making me want to go back and pick up Ablaze and Neon Heat! I like both watermarks - the curved is a little harder to read, but it looks nice!
