NOTD: Neon Layers

Butter London Disco Biscuit

A couple of weeks ago I had painted my nails neon pink for my friend's 21st party and I was just staring at them (as you do) when I suddenly had this 'amazing' idea of putting Disco Biscuit over the neon.

So I finally got round to doing it last night and it didn't quite turn out as how it looked in my head!  I ended up needing to use 6 coats!  I used 2 layers of neon pink (not going to mention brand as pretty sure it's not CF), 2 layers of Disco Biscuit then 2 layers of Seche Vite topcoat!  The topcoat made a huge difference though, it basically went from looking crap to looking pretty amazing.  The 2 layers of topcoat also it gave it a nice squishy look!

Here is a close up to try and show the glitter, however it is a lot more visible in person:


And to compare, here is a photo of Disco Biscuit on it's own:


I think adding the pink underneath gives it a really nice depth, and makes the nail line a lot less visible.
