How to Tone Down Hot Pink Polish

This summer I entered Shoppers’s Drug Marts online nail art competition which featured four looks that we had to mimic. One of my favorite looks was created by nail artists Jenny Stencel and Danielle Black from Polish You Pretty. The tutorial uses three colors including two very bright pinks which are almost painful (but pretty) to look at on their own but applying them together along with a bright teal accent tones down the hot pink polish without killing its “pop” color appeal.

The instruction video the nail artists provided is quick and to the point and makes learning to do this process quick and fun:

This is one of my favorite looks so far and it still surprises me how easy it was to do. I am looking forward to doing this one again with other colors.

Bright summer pink nail polishes by Ceramic Glaze and Quo.

The nail polishes I used for this look were:

  • Quo by Orly โ€” Femme Fatale
  • Ceramic Glaze โ€” Watermelon Cooler
  • Ceramic Glaze โ€” Exotic Dragon Fruit

I believe Quo and Ceramic Glaze are both exclusive to Shopper’s Drug Mart but any bright shades from your collection would work. I used a Revlon base coat. Here is the live view of my final creation.

This has seriously been one of my favorite looks. You have to try it.
