What You’ll Need To Make This Neon Popsicle Nail Design:


Step 1: White Nail Polish

Before painting your nails with white nail polish, make sure you apply a clear base coat first. Never push aside this basic step! This will help keep your natural nails healthy and strong even when you constantly change nail designs.

Step 2: Middle And Ring Fingernails

On your middle and ring fingernails, draw the popsicle by making a letter “M” with a thin brush dipped in pink nail polish. Connect the base of the “M” with a line and then fill in the spaces. Add more popsicles with different colors. Try to draw them in different angles to make your neon popsicle nail design more fun!

Draw two inverted “J” on each Popsicle using the white nail polish on the popsicle as a highlight. This will make your popsicle more lifelike.

Step 4: Index and Pinky Fingernails

For the index and pinky nails, draw some drips (melting Popsicle) with the color of your choice. You can do this by using a dotting tool and dragging it up to create the drip effect. Connect the dots with a curved line and fill in any remaining spaces. In this design, I’m using neon pink and neon green. Add small lines using a white nail polish similar to what you did with the popsicles.


Step 5: Popsicle Stick

For the sticks, add two small lines for each Popsicle. You can either use a nude, beige or brown nail polish.

Finish with a top coat to seal in your design. This will also make your polish last longer without chipping or breaking-off.
