Neon Polka Dots Gradient

Hi bloggers! Today I have a wild manicure that is definitely not for the faint of heart. I was scoping out some other blogs and found an example of a polka dot gradient at  Polished Dezinez Addict that I wanted to try out. Hers must have really stuck in my head because I didn't even realize I picked pretty similar colors to try with it also until just now!

I started with a coat of a white polish by Sinful colors called Snow Me White. Then I did 2 coats of Sinful's neon green called Irish Green. It was too see through with out the white underneath even with 2 coats. 

Then I taped off the diagonal and again did a coat of white. Otherwise the hot pink over the green just made it look kind of reddish and Christmas-y... Eww

Then I taped off again and did one coat of the neon Pink side using Funky Fingers Pop Artist. It wasn't as transparent at the green so 1 coat is all you need! Thank goodness because this was starting to get time consuming! 

It was kind of annoying but I had to do all the dots in white first and then go back and do 2 coats for the green dots and one coat for the pink dots, all with my dotting tool! Whew! It came out cute and SUPER bright but man it was some work LOL Hope you like it! I know it brightened up my day! 


  1. WOW, that's a bright mani! :)
