Hello all! I’m back with some nail art! You were probably starting to wonder if that was ever going to happen again! Now that my overall CPNA coverage is complete, I can get back to basics. Today I have a simple color-blocked look using the Color Club 2014 Poptastic and Poptastic Remix Collections. Poptastic includes six neons with a cool, slight shimmer. The Poptastic Remix includes six minis. Each is a mix of neon and white glitters in a clear base. The blue, Bell Bottom Babe, is the least neon…but you can really see the violet shimmer here.Very pretty.
For some reason I found myself painting my nails up on the platform I use to take my photos. With all of the polishes gathered around, it reminded me of an old-school, cheesy, family portrait. Do any of you remember Olan Mills portrait studios? I’m probably showing my age here. In any event, I did some slight rearranging and took the photo op. Here’s the whole Poptastic “family”.
This was really easy. I started with a plain white base, then “framed” each nail with four pieces of striping tape. I worked one nail at a time, polishing the spaces around the edges with the solid colors using the polish brush. I polished the center last (otherwise the glitter would set up too much and would make a mess when I pulled off the tape). I used the Color Club flat, square nail art brush (I talked about the set here) to dab on the glitter. I’m holding Right On in the pic below. Neons are notoriously difficult for me to photograph!
