A lot of nail art looks that are created during the summer are neon based.  Today, I chose some colors that reflect the heat and will make the season more enjoyable.

WHAT YOU NEED:

I just can't pass up a good glitter combination and Zoya PixieDusts are great for such nail art looks. Why? Pixie dusts and most textured polishes have a bit longer drying time which is great when you are using striping tape. Therefore I used Kiko Taupe as a neutral base.

The glitter polishes I used are Zoya Solange, Beatrix, Destiny and Chyna. The main tool here is striping tape. Also, if you are not a fan of textured nails, don't forget a big pile of top coat.

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:

 

Step 1: Apply base nail polish and make sure it is completely dry before the next step.

Step 2: Create longer striping tape pieces and apply them on the middle of the nail. No need to put it on the geometric middle. It is just a guideline that will help with further square creations.

Step 3: Each nail has 2 parts now. Using the striping tape, split each part at least once. If the split portions are different sizes the manicure will look more fun.

Step 4: Apply the 1st glitter nail polish. Make sure the colored squares all not all located on the same part of the nail.

Step 5: Do the same with the 2nd polish.

Step 6: Apply the 3rd polish you choose, still try to add it on such places so it is not to repetitive.

Step 7: Add the last of the polishes.

Step 8: Remove the striping tape. Firstly remove the small tapes then the horizontal long ones.

Step 9: If you don't like the texture effect to much apply a lot of top coat to smooth out the nails.

 

FINISHED LOOK:

This is the finished results. Now, these are some spicy nails! They are proof that not all summer manicures must be neon. I adore how these turned out!
