Neon Week Nail Art: Neon Rainbow Flowers

Neon Week is going by very quickly! If you missed day one or two you can see them here: Neon Mist (Day 1) and Monochrome Arrows (Day 2). Day 2 also had a tutorial, so be sure to check that out. For today's look I was inspired by the way that Oh My Gosh Polish did her Rainbow Abstract Dab and I wanted to re-create the underlying color. She is amazing and she posts YouTube videos daily and sometimes more than once daily! She seems like such a sweet lady too. Definitely go check her out. She used a dry brush technique which is one that I love! I ended up with a dry brushed rainbow as a base and then I stamped over it! I used China Glaze White On White to make the neons pop. Then I started with Color Club Warhol at the base of my nail and feathered it out far enough to create an orange blend between it and Orly Glowstick. Then I feathered Glowstick out enough to create a green with it and Color Club Chelsea Girl, and finally feathered that out and blended it with Color Club Mrs. Robinson. All of the Color Clubs are from the old Poptastic Collection. I then stamped with plate D14 from the Born Pretty Store and used Wet N Wild Black Creme.

This is what it looked like before stamping. I also really like the way this looks by itself. Can you believe this is my first time doing any type of rainbow on my nails?

Here is another look at the plate. Unlike the experience I had using QA90 from the Born Pretty Store, D14 worked amazingly well! I tried out every image and all of them pick up perfectly with no hassle at all. I really had fun stamping with this plate. I think the motif is very well done too. I don't know when I'll be using cowboys, but they are so cute I might just have to come up with a reason. This kind of turned into a review of D14, but I should say, this plate was purchased by me, not provided for review. If you do want to purchase from the Born Pretty Store please use my code for 10% off: HANDX31.

I really love this design. It is really bright, but the stamp brings it all together and tones it down a lot. This is definitely a fun look for summer. Which of my Neon Week looks is your favorite so far? I really hope you like this one too! Thanks for reading.


  1. I was going to say that this might be my favorite so far, but I really can't decide because I <3 them all so much

  2. You are so sweet! I am really excited about tomorrow's post, so maybe you'll change your mind again!

  3. I LOOOVE this! I think this is my favorite design on the plate and what you did here is fantastic!
