Neon yellow and tan nail design

Neon yellow and tan nail design

When you're doing such a vibrant hue such as neon on your nails, it's very easy to get carried away and go too bright. That's why we like this mani inspired by a spring 2013 Christian Dior look: a tan dress with cutouts revealing pops of neon yellow. Neon can be so chic when paired with a neutral color like tan. Keep it simple with dabs of yellow while getting a bit bolder on the ring finger.

Supplies:

  • Piggy Polish's You Had Me at Yellow
  • Sally Hansen's White On
  • Essie's Sand Tropez
  • Small paint brush
  • Scotch tape
