Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge - Day One: Neons!

Howdy everyone! Today starts me totally going outside of my comfort zone with a fall-themed nail art challenge! I've never ever really done nail art so this should be entertaining, to say the least. I'm so excited! Today is neons!

I love me some neons! I decided to try a really cool technique I've seen around called "sugar spun nails" and used this tutorial. Granted, this was my first time ever doing this but I think it came out really cool. I'm definitely happy I tried this and can't wait to try this out using different colors. Horizons are already being broadened!

  1. oh i love string nails! You did a great job :)

  2. This looks awesome! I've never done a mani like this before!

    1. Thank you! You should try it! It's a bit time consuming as far as waiting for the paint to get tacky, but I think the results are worth it. :)

  3. OMG this is insanely amazing, love the colors.

    1. Thank you! I wish my camera didn't dull out the total neon-ness it had! :(
