Hello everyone and welcome to the first day of the Summer Nail art Challenge hosted by the face book group Challenge Your Nail Art. This is a short challenge lasting only 3 days. The prompts are fun and we welcome anyone to join us. Like all the nail art challenges this group puts together there is no pressure. You can do as many or a few of the days as your schedule allows.
For today's theme I wanted to try out the dry brush technique. Of course I had to pull out my neon polishes. Nothing says summertime quite like Neon polish am I right?
I started with a base of Milani White on the spot. For the neon colors I used Milani Totally 80's, Pink Hottie, Awesome Orange and, Fresh Teal. I like the bright yet grungy look this has.
My nails are not in the best of shape right now after making the poor decision of having acrylics put on for a friends wedding. After removing them the surface of my nails is slightly uneven. You can see how it affected this manicure in the pink portion. But I think it had a positive affect, helping to break up the nail polish instead of leaving a solid strip of color. What do you think? Have you tried the dry brush technique yet? Now let's see what the other challenge participants have come up with for today.
