Here at TGL, Laura and I are *obsessed* with painting our nails. No color or design is off limits. With that said, I bring you neon tips with the help of reinforcers. (yep, those crazy white circles you used in high-school to keep your paper from falling out of your binder) Check it:

Step 1: SCOOP THE GOODS

I purchased these polish/reinforcers at my local CVS/Ulta. Feel free to switch up the colors! I think fushia with silver glitter tips will be my next move. Me? Glitter? Surprise Surprise.

Step 2: TIPS

Okay SO I figured this out the hard way… You need to start by painting your tips on fresh clean nails! The reinforcers were so sticky they even pulled up dry polish. Not cute…

Step 3: FILL IN

I found that taking the brush in horizontal strokes rather than vertical helped a lot! Either way, practice is going to be key. I’ll be honest, I re-did mine 3 times before I got them halfway decent. Perfectionist tendencies…

J’ai fini.

Step 4: ENCOURAGEMENT

Romes decided he wanted to cheer me on while taking on the task of neon tips…
