Neon Tribal Gradient!

Hi y'all! I've got some tribal neon gradients to share with you all today! These were super simple and fun to do! Please just exuse the rabbit fur in the picture - I didn't realize it was even there until I was editing just a second or so before writing this up. The joys or our awesome furkids, right? I know some of you have cats and have the same problem with the fur. 

Anyways, these were wasy to do, you just need a make up sponge and your four colors of choice for the background. I chose to use neons, but you can use pastels or whatever you want if you don't like such a bright look. 

For mine, I used two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White to start with and when that was dry I used a damp make up sponge and painted on my four colors in the areas I wanted each. I used Broadway Nails Sun Flower and Sour Apple (Orange and Green) and LA Colors Pumpin' Pink and Flicker (pink and yellow) for this look. But any neons you want would work the same! If you're using neons though, you def want a white underneath to make them really pop. 

After I had my gradient built up to a nice opacity and looking the way I wanted it too, I cleaned up around my nails, then took my detail brush and black acrylic paint and did some simple lines to make a tribal look over the background. You could leave it as is with just gradient as well if you'd like, but that was too boring for my taste personally, and also, I like that the black design kinda brings the brightness down a little bit.
