Neon abstract

Day 22 of Short and Sweet in Texas’ Nail Challenge is NEON! I’ve never worn neon before so this is a first for me.

This cool design is by Robin Moses. I saw this picture last week and tried my best to make it happen. I guess I could have hunted down her tutorial but I was too busy cleaning and playing with kids today. 🙂

It is definitely not a usual look for me but I do love the bright colors. 🙂 I started out with two coats of Jocarste 28 to make the neons have a metallic flair then, after raiding The Shutterbug’s stash to borrow some neons, I got to sponging. I used Chic – Neon Green, Neon Fushia, Neon Pink and Neon Yellow. Then I added the brush strokes with black, lemon yellow mixed with pastel yellow and blue lake acrylic paints. I hope you like them.

Have you even done any Robin Moses nail art? I did another one on The Shutterbug last year which I really loved how it turned out, but this is the only picture I have of it because I wasn’t really taking pictures of nails I did back then.

  1. These are gorgeous! Must be nice to be ambidextrous! My right hand always looks like a kindergartener drew on them when all is said and done. Robin Moses is the queen!
