The Digit-al Dozen Does Neon--When things aren't what they seem

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a super cool thing to show you!  It will amaze you! It will blow you out of the water! You will not believe it!!!!!  I have a really super nice and way cool polish buddy.  You might have heard of her -- Beaching Nails aka Sandy Beach.  Sandy is on a one woman mission to create as many nail techniques as possible LOL.  This gurl never sleeps I kid you not!  Awhile ago she posted a video on the Beach Sun Spray technique.  Oh you know a technique where you put something on your nails that looks exactly like  nail polish only it isn't! It's not nail polish at all!

Here's a shot of my with my first ever Beach Sun Spray mani can you guess what I used???
Looks like a neon nail polish mani doesn't it????? 

What do you think it is--nail wraps?  Nope!
Water decals??? Nope!
The Beach Sun Spray technique is actually done using permanent markers aka Sharpie's on a make up sponge and then spraying with rubbing alcohol and dabbing onto your nail!!!!!!!!!

Are you shocked?????? Are you amazed????????
It's just so simple I can hardly stand it!  All I did was paint my nails white and then following the technique which can be found HERE I drew on a makeup sponge and then sprayed it with rubbing alcohol and then I sponged on to get my gradient.  SUPER EASY PEASY!  I stamped over it because you know me I'm all about the stamping hahahaha!   What do you think???? Did you guess it was markers????


  1. Wow, markers? Really? That is so crazy. I didn't even know such a technique existed. Beautiful stamping as always. :)

  2. You were right; I'm blown away by this mani! Fabulous!

  3. yah ok. that is one of the cooler techniques i've seen in a while. i need to get some rubbing alcohol!

  4. Stunning! I so want to try that technique. You're right...I don't think Sandy sleeps. You did her proud with this mani, that's for sure!

  5. Wow so cool! I don't know how some people are able to come up with so many innovative's amazing!!

  6. Ok, that is ridiculously awesome! I love it!

  7. great job. I really don't know how she does it!

  8. Wow! Very cool! How many 'layers' does it take to get the gradient looking good with this method?
