Neon Block Drips - Color Club Poptastic Remix Nail Art


These 'drips' are a little different than the nail art drips that I normally do. While my other drips are flowy and realistic, these drips are blocky and unrelenting. I quite like the way they came out, and would definitely try this nail art again. Read on for details.


I started out with a base of 3 coats of Color Club Right On, a neon purple with shimmer. I freakin' love this shade. It's so pretty and electric.

Then, using the polish brush, I stacked on 'drips' using Color Club Not So Mellow Yellow (neon yellow-green), Color Club Foxy Mama (neon orange), Color Club Peace Love and Polish (lighter pink with shimmer), and black.

This technique is kind of similar to the way you use the brush in Nailside's cloud manicure, except a little less organized. Just keep your strokes as steady as possible, and make sure you have enough polish on the brush to make the drip in one swipe.


This is definitely a look I'd like to try with other color combinations as well. I think it has so many fun possibilities!

The Color Club Poptastic collection is available now on shopcolorclub.com.

    I think the black makes the colors pop, I enjoy your blog and have made a light box that you gave directions for, but I want to know how you do your watermark?

  4. No tutorial, but it's very easy. Just use the polish brush to paint thick stripes of polish down your nail. Stack them for effect.

  12. Sarah, OK: I'm going to date myself here, but these colors and the design remind me of Aerosmith, circa 1986! Has anyone else ever noticed that Steven Tyler, the lead singer, polishes his nails with vertical stripes, too? Usually in black and white.
