We want to see the designs trending at your nail desk!

Laura Easby, of Laura’s Beauty, reveals neon hues have been popular with her clients recently.

“Honestly, I think clients’ nails totally depend on their mood and the season. Last week we hit 16 degrees and everyone lost their minds and wanted neon! When I asked this client what she fancied, she said ‘bright’ and I said ‘how bright?’, she said ‘bright, bright!, so she got neon!

“We’ve got my client’s nails looking so gorgeous by using The Gel Bottle Builder In A Bottle as the base to keep them super long and strong, then a base of white gel and cure. I then went in with Magpie Beauty Neon Pigments and dabbed all of the different colours across the 10 nails, brushed off the excess pigment and painted a clear gel coat and cured. I then added some gold foil and used spider gel – that, if I’m honest, is totally uncontrollable stringy sticky gel that has a mind of its own but makes amazing mess – before curing for 60 secs and finished with my favourite matte top coat by The Gel Bottle Inc.

“I’m usually one for ‘less is more’ but I recently saw a quote on Instagram that said ‘more is more and less is a bore’ and as I was doing them I kept thinking, ‘now I’ll do a bit of this, not some of this…’ – it was chaos and I loved it! You could do this design with all different colours and styles: it could be so versatile and can cheer up anyone’s day!”
