It may be Labor Day morning, but there are still a million decisions to make. Which beach? Which summer dress? Mojitos or daiquiris? Hamburgers or hot dogs?

One thing you don’t have to figure out is what to do with your nails, because essie celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders has done that for you. Easy enough to do on your own, this exclusive nail art look is the perfect way to finish out your summer.

 DIY Neon Nail Art Tutorial

Step 1. Prime Nails with Base Coat

To start, coat all ten nails with essie’s prime & pop. This two-in-one white primer and base coat will increase color vibrancy for the neon shades to come.

Step 2. Apply Neon Lime Shade

Next, use essie in stencil me in on the left side of the nail to create a “V” at the cuticle.


Step 3. Apply Neon Turquoise Shade

Apply essie’s in it to wyn it to the right side of the nail, making sure to follow the same pattern as the opposite side for a clean, symmetrical look.

Step 4. Finish with Top Coat

Finish with your favorite essie top coat and voilà—your perfect end-of-summer mani is complete!
