Mermaid Effect Neon - Two Methods of Application

Hi my beautiful friends. Mermaid Effect Neon by Indigo Nails is the newest addition to their Mermaid Effect range that stole many nail enthusiasts’ hearts! I loved the original mermaid effect, so I was very curious about the new colors. This time they released five electric neon colors: yellow, orange, pink, lila and green. Take a look at my video tutorial and I will give you more details below.

There are to methods how you can apply the Mermaid Effect Neon:

  • Method 1: Apply base color. It’s best to use white or color similar to the powder. In the video I used Mr. White from Indigo. Cure in LED. Then apply your top coat. It’s best to use a top coat without the dispersion layer, such as Dry Top. Do not cure the top coat and apply the powder on wet gel. I used a cuticle pusher to scoop the powder and sprinkle it on my nail.
  • Method 2: It’s more of a traditional method of applying the powder. Apply two coats of color and then cure in LED. Rub the powder onto your nails until you get a nice smooth effect. Finish everything off with a layer of top coat. In the video I used a white nail polish as my base, but I would recommend using a color that is similar to the powder for a better and more saturated effect. The powder rubbed into the white gel looked a little bit washed out.

In the above picture you can see how the two methods of applying the Mermaid Effect Neon compare. I have to admit, I wasn’t sure about the textured look at first, but now I absolutely love it. The colors are so much more vibrant and saturated and it feels really cool on the nails!

I also took a few macro shots of the textured look! I absolutely love how sparkly this effect is.
