Circle Manicure

This fun manicure is definitely one of my favorites! I chose to use neons that reminded me of summer, but it could really work with any colors you'd like! For this manicure, you'll need some paper and straws. I used two straws, which I cut in half so I had four total...one for each neon color. I started by polishing my nails with three coats of OPI Alpine Snow. I let that dry for about an hour. Then, I put a blob of polish on the paper and dipped the end of the straw in it. Make sure it doesn't form a film over the straw (like a bubble wand) or that film will end up on your nail! Then, just place in on your nail! It took a little getting used to and I ended up almost rolling the straw onto my nail. I started with the lightest color and worked my way to the darker ones. I used China Glaze neons for the circles. In order, I used Pink Voltage, Kiwi Cool-ada, Purple Panic, and Towel Boy Toy. Once I was done, I finished up with a topcoat! The pictures were taken indoors on a cloudy day! Enjoy! :)

Circle Manicure


  1. Girl...I tried this the other day...and it was a complete FAIL for me! I couldn't get the circle to be a complete circle. I tried on three different nails, then I just gave up. I ended up just turning them into flower nails.

    1. Oh no! Did you roll the straw? It took me a few nails to get used to rolling it and going back for a second dip to complete the circle! :)
