Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.


Nail Art Studio: Neon Funk

Lexi Martone mixes up textures and neon shades for a summer look. 

1. Start with white base color to make the neon pop.

2. Using your favorite neon colors, paint overlapping geometric shapes. Seal the look with top coat.

3. Create 3-D shapes using black acrylic and use Bondini to adhere the pieces to the nail. Leave the shapes matte to add a contrasting effect.
