Most recently, I used one for a simple tribal manicure on nude and neon nails.
I started with a base coat of CND Stickey before applying two coats of Topshop Mannequin (£5/€9), which gives me dead hand syndrome if I wear it alone but looks like my perfect nude under nail art.
For the tribal print, I first drew a horizontal line across the centre of the nail to divide it in half. Then I divided each half into thirds by adding two equidistant horizontal lines on each side before doodling on some detail and painting the tips with Angelica Hip Hop (£2.50/€2.75 from Primark/Penneys.) Like all neons, this one is a bee-atch to photograph accurately; the bottle colour actually gives the best representation of how the vibrant pinky orange of Hip Hop looks In Real Life.
Do we like?
