Pastel neon ikat nailz

Some edgier nails than my last couple pastel annoying girly nails cause nails should be BADASS not CUTESY. It's ikat week for the weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) I co-host on Instagram along with lovely ladies Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey. What's ikat you ask? Idk, some pattern where people drew shapes then scribbled out of the lines and it became a trend.

I used four different pastel neon polishes for this look, from Color Club and Maybelline, along with some black and white acrylic paint. Links to all the products below!

How striking and perf for summah, amirite?! I've seen tons of these kinds of large triangle-ish shaped ikat designs done on nails before, and I wasn't inspired by anyone in particular. I just thought it was a MUST that there be a gradient as the base cause I can't quit you gradient, I CAN'T QUIT YOU. And then I really loved this particular pastel neon colour combo of yellow-orange-peach-coral after having done this simple rainbow gradient nail art, and I wanted to focus on this colour scheme!

I used two of the new Color Club pastel neons (Hot-hot-hot pants and Disco's not dead), plus two of Maybelline's bleached neons (Citrus collide and bleached in peach), the latter of which I'm pretty sure are discontinued, so you're better off collecting all the Color Club pastel neons before they fly off the shelves too :p


I used my trusty Simply Peel to protect my nail while doing the gradient part. Have you seen my video review of this product along with 5 of its competitors? Watch it now on YouTube!

Simply Peel Latex Barrier




Look at that spongy colourful goodness! It's just a triangular latex-free cosmetic sponge I got from my local drug/grocery store. I just cut off the skinny thin edge of the triangle for a width that's the perfect size for my nails!





In love with this colour scheme! And it's not even evil at all!

Polishes used:
- Maybelline Color Show 'Citrus collide' (yellow pastel neon creme)
- Color Club 'Disco's not dead' (light orange pastel neon creme)
- Maybelline Color Show 'Bleached in peach' (orange pastel neon creme)
