Mani Monday: Models Own Ice Neons Nail Art

Today's Mani Monday is another one of MissJenFabulous' easy nail art for beginners designs.  I'm still in love with Models Own Ice Neons and just haven't worn them as much as I'd like to have done... so watch out for a few more neon manis coming in the next few weeks! They also look so great just on their own and bring so much promise of summer with them that sometimes I just want to wear them plain (I keep staring at them when I do).

I used two coats of Models Own Snow White under the Models Own Pink Punch to make the colour really pop.  Once they were all completely dry, I followed MissJenFabulous' instructions on her YouTube video - I used a striping brush (I got mine from Amazon) to paint the purple (Models Own Pukka Purple) triangle, then outlined the triangle with a black Models Own Nail Art striping brush.  I topped it all off (once it was dry!) with Butter London PD Quick.

If you haven't tried nail art before, definitely have a go at this one, or the one I posted this week - they really are easy to do and this one is particularly good practice for getting to grips with a striping brush.

    1. Thanks so much! The neons are so awesome - I think Models Own may only be properly available in the UK, but worth tweeting them (@modelsown) to find out!
