Pastel Neon Mani with The Wanderlust Collection from Birchbox + Color Club

This weekend I was inspired by a nail tutorial by Keiko Lynn that I pinned to my Nail Inspiration board on Pinterest.  I decided to use the pastel neon shades from The Wanderlust Collection from Birchbox and Color Club.  This set of 4 minis are exclusive colors custom blended by the Birchbox editors.  Neon shades were mixed with a white base to create “pastel neons” which are pale yet bright.  The four shades: Mod in Manhattan:  brilliant off-white; London Calling:  sunny green; Reign in Spain:  fiery coral; Pardon My French:  charming purple.

Step 1:  I applied two coats of Mod in Manhattan (such a cool white!) on all nails:

I waited several minutes making sure my white base was dry.

Step 2:  I applied one swipe of London Calling across one side of four nails and one coat of Reign in Spain across the accent nail:

Step 3:  I applied two coats of Reign in Spain accross the other side of four nails and two coats of Pardon My French across the other side of the accent nail:

I cleaned up any polish from my cuticles and waited about 20 minutes to make sure all the polish was dry before adding top coat.  After all my careful work I simply did not want to risk smearing my polish!
