How To Do Hot Pink And Neon Green Nails Combo
For this DIY manicure, you’ll need:
A Fine Grit Nail File
Neon Green Nail Polish
Hot Pink Nail Polish with cool undertones
Clear Top Coat Polish
A Thin Nail Art Brush
Because we are working with neon colors, opt for more opaque and thick polishes over sheer options to get the brightest color. You can also start with a white polish base coat to amp up the pigment power of your neon colors.
Pairing neon green and hot pink will either look amazing or clash terribly. The determining factor is the undertones. Undertones are what make a hot pink polish feel warm or cool. Neon green is a cool-toned color, making it important to choose a hot pink with cool undertones. Avoid coral and orangey hot pinks.
Hold the polish colors up together and ask yourself if they seem to coordinate or clash. Choosing a hot pink with cool undertones will ensure your DIY nail design looks phenomenal.
How To Do Hot Pink And Neon Green Nails Combo: Almond Nail Shape Tutorial
First, trim and file your nails. For this summer nail design, I chose a shorter almond shape. The almond-shaped nail trend originated on screen when actresses Elizabeth Taylor and Lucille Ball popularized the almond shape for manicures. Fashion magazines quickly picked up on the new style, and the almond shape became the trending shape for everyday women’s manicures.
An almond nail shape visually elongates fingers and has a feminine vibe. It pairs beautifully with the modern swirls on the accent nails. To create the almond shape, equally file both sides of your nail towards the center of the nail tip, leaving a small flat tip. Then round out the sharp corners of the nail tip to create a soft, blended arch.
How To Do Hot Pink And Neon Green Nails Tutorial
For this manicure, I painted two coats of hot pink nail polish on my thumb, ring finger, and pinky. Once the pink polish has dried, take the nail art brush and paint two organic swirling lines at a diagonal on your accent nails. Fill in the lines on the cuticle side and on the nail tip side to create two blobs of neon green with negative space in the center.
Allow the lines to flow organically, don’t be too stressed about getting it perfect. This is a time to let your creativity flow. You can fill in the neon green areas with a second coat if it is too sheer.
Finish your DIY manicure with one or two layers of a clear top coat to protect your nail design. You can also use a silver-based glitter clear coat as a top coat to mix it up even more.
