Neon Watercolor Nails

Good evening lovelies,

in my last post I showed you my very first attempt in watercolor nails. Since I wasn't 100% happy with the result, but quite liked the effect this technique gave, I decided to try it once again. This time, I chose to follow the tutorial by MissJenFabulous. You do not need acetone and a brush, just a simple freezer bag or sandwich bag and your polishes. To make this a bright and Spring/Summer appropriate manicure, I pulled out some of my China Glaze Summer Neons and started "marbling" my nails.

As in my last watercolor design, I used Wet 't Wild White Crème as a base to make the neon colors pop. It is not the perfect white polish. I find it's too runny and goes on a little patchy. So if someone knows some opaque, easy to work with plain white polishes, please let me know ;) 
The China Glaze Summer Neons I used are Sun-Kissed, Orange You Hot? and Love's A Beach. I just love these bright shimmery neons (and I am already excited for this year's Summer neons). I feel like a full manicure with just one neon color is hard to pull off for me, but I love how several colors look together. The day I did this manicure the sun was out, so the photos were taken in natural light. Even in the shade (last photo) the colors are intensely glowing. 
I have to say, I love how these came out and prefer the look of these "sandwich bag watercolor nails" over the acetone & brush design I did previously.

Which do you prefer? Are these watercolor nails your cup of tea at all? Let me know!

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!
