How to Get a Neon Pedicure Using Essie 2-in-1 White Nail Primer and Gel-setter

           It was 10:22 AM when my sister's husband woke me up from my sleep. He was taking his son to the movies, and he wanted to know if my children could go with him. And of course the answer was he*k yes.  Now what does one do when her 10 and 7-year old are out of the house on a Saturday morning? After thinking about it for a few minutes, I decided to give myself pedicure while binge watching Nashville. I figured it was the right time to use my Essie kit that I got from PINCHme. And with spring being around the corner, it was definitely time to get these toes out of hiding. The latest collection of Essie nail polish is called B'aha Moment. This spring 2017 collection also includes the color of the year, greenery. It is a vibrant green with avocado undertone. But we are not talking about that today. We are talking about how to get a cute neon pop of color using the nail primer and gel-setter from Essie.

The gel-setter provides a shinier and thicker look than regular top coats. It levels the polish and gives the nails that salon pedicure or manicure look.

The two-in-one white primer and base-coat was created to increase the hue of your nail polish, giving your nails a neon look after application. 

How to Get a Neon Pedicure with Essie Nail Primer and Gel-setter
Step 1
Apply the 2-in-1 primer + base-coat
Make sure the whole nail is covered
Two coats should be enough
Step 2
Apply two coats of Essie neon nail polish
Add more, depending on your preference
Step 3 
Seal your newly polished nails with the gel-setter

A little self-care is definitely good for the mind. What's even better is being able to do it peacefully.  I am very satisfied with my little kit so far. All 3 products dried quickly and the color is beautiful. What do you think?
