How to DIY Easy Neon Nail Art

The Edgy Neon Nail Art Look Anyone Can Master

Coachella is less than a month away, which means . . . it's time to start planning your festival nail art. While 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 ($24.95) 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 American Apparel Neon Nail Polish in Neon Yellow ($14), 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 ($24.95) for fast-drying shine.
