How-to: Once your basecoat is dry apply two coats of white polish and leave to dry. In a shot glass (yes, that's how we roll) pour a mix of half neon yellow polish to half thinner. Do the same in another glass with the grey polish. Cover your fingers around each nail with selotape or masking tape to protect your fingers from the paint splatters. Place your nails on top of a surface well covered with newspaper and using the paint brush dip it into the neon yellow mix and splatter each of your nails then leave to dry. Do the same with the grey mixture and leave to dry. Finish by dabbing a little glitter sporadically on each nail. Once dry finish with a clear, high shine top coat, ELLE loves Seche Vite, £9.85 (at Feelunique). Clean up any paint splatters on your fingers with OPI's Correct & Cleanup pen, £11.50 (at John Lewis) or use a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover.
