shutterstock 20515250 Follow the Yellow Brick Road Nail TrendWhen you want to rock a unique manicure, the yellow brick road pattern is one of many options that you have. The yellow brick road pattern features two different shades of yellow and a funky half-circle pattern. To create this pattern on your own nails is easy, and you can follow the tips outlined here. If you just can’t stand the thought of doing your own nails, then you can also bring these instructions to a local manicurist, and he or she will be able to help you achieve this cool look.

1. Buy two different shades of nail polish color.

To start creating this look, you will first need to buy two different shades of yellow nail polish. You may also mix up this look and paint your nails with a bold yellow color and cream color.

2. Apply the base coat of color.

After you purchase the nail polish colors, then your next step will be to apply three coats of base color to your nails. You should try to pick a very light color for the base color. When the base coat dries, then you will be able to apply a coat of the bold yellow color that you have.

3. Apply the pattern tape to your nails.

There are two ways in which you can get the actual “yellow brick road” shape on your nails. First, you can simply use pattern scissors to cut small bits of tape to apply to your nails. With this option, you will apply a small segment of tape in a diagonal fashion to each of your nails. You will then need to paint over each nail with a bold yellow color. The other option is simply painting half-circles directly onto your nails. With this option, you can simply use bold yellow nail polish to paint half-circles. You should use a steady hand in order to get the full “yellow brick road” look. It is probably a better idea to use pattern scissors and tape to achieve the pattern that you want.

4. Apply top-coat acrylic polish to your nails.

The last step that you should follow is to apply acrylic nail polish to your nails. This will give your nails that gorgeous, shined look.

By following the tips outlined here, put on some Pink Floyd and enjoy your “yellow brick road” nail pattern. Your nails will look incredible with this pattern.

Having Some Fun with Neon Yellow Nail Polish

by Clifford Blodgett on October 20, 2012

shutterstock 85425589 Having Some Fun with Neon Yellow Nail PolishThere are so many ways to get a fun look with yellow nail polish. Whether you want a french manicure with yellow tips or sparkly neon nails, yellow nail polish can give you look that you always wanted. Painting your nails with yellow nail polish is an easy way to get a trendy and youthful look. Here are some ideas that you can use to create the perfect look with yellow nail polish.

1. Sparkly neon yellow nails.

Perhaps you want to spice things up for a night out on the town with your girlfriends. When you want your nails to look incredible, you can add some glitter to your nails in order to create a gorgeous look. To obtain this look, you can use actual glitter or clear glittery nail polish. If you decide to use actual glitter, then simply sprinkle some glitter over your nails before they dry. If you decide to use clear, glittery nail polish, then you will want to paint a clear coat of nail polish over your nails.

2. French manicure with yellow tips.

If you want a more elegant look that is still trendy, then you can try out this french manicure tip. For this french manicure look, you will simply paint a coat of nude or light pink nail polish on all of your nails. Beige nail polish also looks great for this type of look. Then, you should let the nail polish completely dry. After the base coat dries, then you will apply yellow nail polish on all of your tips. This will give you a very funky look that has a touch of classiness to it.

3. Multicolored neon nails.

If you want to go all out and have a fun look, then you can try painting your nails in a variety of neon colors. To get this look, you will just need to paint each nail a different color of neon nail polish. When you finish painting your nails, you will end up with nails that are painted hot pink, blue, neon green and yellow.

4. Polka dot nails.

With this look, you will simply need to paint polka dots onto your nails. Get a collection of different nail polish colors so that you can create a pattern of polka dots on your nails.

These are four of the most popular looks that you can create with yellow nail polish. With these looks, your nails will stand out in any crowd.
