Kleancolor Nail Lacquer in Neon Orange ((and)) L.A. Colors Art Deco
Found this Nail Art design on YouTube, courtesy of macNC40. Check out their tutorial here
*While not shown, I always start (and finish) my manicures with Sinful Colors base and top coats. You can find these at most 'big-box' stores or drugstores for around $2.50 a piece
I choose Kleancolor's Neon Orange for the base color. I'm not sure how much this cost, as it was a birthday gift from a friend, but I would assume you could find this at your local drugstore.
Pros: It goes on smoothly and with an even consistancy. It seems to dry rather quickly once on the nails, though I'd probably wait 5-10 minutes between coats to be safe.
Cons: It will require 2-4 coats to achieve the best color result.
For the stripes, I used L.A. Colors Nail Deco in Black. This can be found many places, but I purchased it from Dollar General for $1 per bottle (I bought 5 that day. What can I say? lol)
Pros: The thin brush makes doing nail art much easier than it previously had been. It is available in a wide variety of solid colors and in glitters.
Cons: The polish likes to drip to the bottom of the brush, making thin lines rather difficult.
Final Verdict: The pros of these polishes greatly outweighed in the cons, making this an easy to do manicure for the low price of around $8. I have done this many times since finding the tutorial, and would continue to do so. :)
