V-Shape Nail Art

The Edgy Neon Nail Art Look Anyone Can Master

Independence Day is around the corner, which means . . . it's time to start working on your Summer nail art. While we love a loud neon look, we've created a more subtly cool one that's part electric, part nude. To get this DIY manicure, create a reverse V-shape nail design — an edgier take on a classic moon manicure.

To start, round up your favorite neon polish, tape, and a base coat (topcoat is optional). We chose not to do a base color to make the neon really pop. Start with Butter London Nail Foundation ($19) as a base coat to perfect your natural nails. It only takes a couple minutes to dry, and then place two strips of tape at the tip of your nail to form the V shape. After painting on two thin coats of Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Rare ($17), pull off the tape while the paint is still wet. You can leave your nails as is for a matte finish, but we opted for a layer of Butter London Hardwear PD Quick Top Coat ($19) for fast-drying shine.
