The Nail Files: Colourful Cosby Sweater


The Nail Files Link Up


Hello there, Nail Filers! IT'S FRIDAY! YAY!!


This week, I went off the map. And by that, I mean that instead of having a Pin inspire my mani, I just kinda winged it. Because the weather here has been all about the rain, I thought I'd brighten things up a bit and use a whole bunch of neons all at once. I've had some commenters ask me to make tutorials, so this week is also my first stab at that. I hope that it's helpful! 


Here's what I used:



Here's the mani:



Here's how I did it:


Step 1: Three coats of Celtic Sun (I know, it'll take forever to dry but it's the only way to get good coverage).

Step 2: Using a thin brush, stripe on some 15 Minutes of Frame.

Step 3: Add some stripes of Warhol Wannabe.

Step 4: You guessed it, more stripes with Mayhem Mentality.

Step 5: Last bit of striping with Creative Fantasy.

Step 6: A nice gob of top coat to seal all the colours and make the nail less bumpy feeling. Then, all you need to do is clean up the polish that gets on your skin.


A very simple and easy mani, really, considering that it's all freehand with no particular design. I think that the end result looks like a neon Cosby sweater. Jello-O, anyone? Haha!!


Have an awesome weekend, everyone!


And thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting!
