COLOR CLUB: Neon Stained Glass Nail Art

Pin It Hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, and slightly sane during this situation of a pandemic. I've seen a lot of cool "stained glass" painted windows and doors (like this! I don't know this blogger, but thought I'd pass the idea along in case someone hasn't seen it!).

As tempted as I am to paint my huge sliding glass patio doors, live in an apartment who would probably freak out if I painted it  even if it's temporary haha. So, I decided the second best thing would be to paint my nails (obviously). I had an idea for a ton of random colors but was gravitated to some Color Club neons in my collection.

I really like how this came out! The mix of a neutral cream polish and neon has always been visually intriguing to me. Plus a little color right now goes a long way.

I couldn't find my striping tape, I think I threw it away out of frustration, so I just used a striping brush to create the random triangular shapes. As much as I'd prefer a full mani, my nail art skills are a little rusty so 4 nails took forever (I did my right hand too haha).

The colors I used were Color Club: Barely There (neutral/nude), Foxy Mama (neon orange with gold shimmer), Not-So-Mellow Yellow (florescent yellow shimmer), Peace, Love, & Polish (hot pink with gold shimmer), and a no-name bright blue (I think it's name is Endless Summer).

Barely There took a really long time to dry for some reason, which really backfired in layering the neons over it... causing it to take forever to dry. Even with my Zoya/Qtica drying drops, I couldn't get the art to dry until the next day - WHOOPS! As much as I love this neutral, I think I'm going to have to trash it. Still enjoying this mani, even if it has some sheetmarks lmao *facepalm*

Have a great day!
