What's an indecisive girl to do when she gets a new box of 6 nail polishes? I was excited to get this set of neon nail polishes from OPI's new summer collection, but I had trouble deciding which colour to use first. Neon's one of those colours that I'm always a bit wary of. Will the colour look exactly as pictured? Will it match my skin tone? So I decided that there was only one way to find out: Use them all at once.
I'm not great at putting on nail art or even putting on solid nail polish. I thought that the best route was to go for the splattered neon look. It's fun, retro, a great way to brighten up black nail polish in the summer, and best of all, it's allowed to look messy. I'm glad I went with this because now, I've gotten a view of what the colours look like dry and now I'm even more excited to use my favourites! The nail polish dries matte, which is great if you want a more subtle neon look. And they dried very nicely visible and pigmented. The pink one actually dries into a glowy indigo/pink depending on your lighting and the thickness of the coat.
How to get the splattered nail polish look: Since I'm a complete amateur, I made this process as easy as possible. I took the string from a teabag and used that as my brush. After dipping the end of the string into the colour you want, gentle dab the string onto your nails. Like I said before, the best part of this is that it's supposed to look messy, so uneven strokes are no problem at all!
