Distressed Neon Look Featuring New KBShimmer Bleached Neons

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have a quick and easy nail art look to share with you that I decided to do for my weekend out of town. I got a HUGE BOX of KBShimmer's upcoming summer releases yesterday in the mail and I will be sharing full swatches of those with you over the next week or so, but I couldn't resist pulling out a few to play with. I was pressed for time since I was packing to go out of town last night, but the new bleached neon cremes (see full press release for those here) were calling to me. For this mani, I started with a base of Rum Me the Right Way (yellow) and then I used Chalkboard Nails' distressed mani technique over Rum Me the Right Way with In Yacht Water (blue) and Bahama Drama (coral). This created a fun, tie-dyed sort of look and I loved it just like this so I didn't add the black on top like you see in a traditional distressed manicure. If you want easy, but striking nail art, there is nothing simpler than this technique. The most important thing is to wipe almost all of the polish off of the brush before doing your strokes on top of the base color so you get the nice, feathery looking finish.

KBShimmer products are available from their website as well as from Harlow & Co. (Canada) for international customers. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram for updates on new collections and to see swatches of all of their polishes. Their (three!) Summer Collections are going to be released on May 15th, so be sure to mark your calenders! There will be more previews and swatches soon!

What's your favorite nail art look when you are in a hurry? Sorry for the quick post and run, but I'm off to have fun this weekend! Thanks for looking everyone!
