Neon swirls

Painted Fingertips | Neon Swirls

Hi everyone!

I did this nail art a couple of weeks ago, when my nails were still nice and long. They’ve been breaking like crazy the last couple of weeks! I’ve been doing a ton of origami and I think working with paper so much has really been drying them out, despite oiling them and using hand cream on a daily basis. Anyway, let’s just enjoy today’s fun nail art. Painted Fingertips | Neon SwirlsI used a dotting tool to create these fun bright spirals using Tip Top Grape Dance, Walking on Sunshine, As the Beat Grows On, Get the Party StartedCyan Can-Can, and Salsa Pop. I just started using on colour in the centre of each nail, then added the other colours around it to get some colourful swirls! Painted Fingertips | Neon SwirlsI topped them all with a coat of Sinful Colors Opal Glitter, which is just one of my favourite glitter toppers at the moment. It’s so versatile!Painted Fingertips | Neon SwirlsFun, bright, and summery – just what I need to cheer me up now that winter has begun here!Painted Fingertips | Neon SwirlsWhat do you think?

    Oh I love that look. Its so pretty time consuming but totally worth it.

      It wasn’t that bad time-wise! Yes it takes longer than just painting your nails but it was quicker than a lot of the other designs I do.

        Cool I think the fact that they don’t have to be perfect would make this a very achievable look.

    These are incredible! I cannot believe you did these with just a dotting tool so amazing!

      Thanks! The lines don’t need to be perfect or super thin so a dotting tool worked great!
