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.


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 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.



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!
