Salon Perfect Neon Collision Nail PolishA funky ombré manicure makes for excellent summertime nail art-but the perfect gradient can be hard to achieve with traditional crème lacquer! Salon Perfect's new Neon Collision collection combines the cool matte-glitter and textured trends that have been popping up in just about every polish line, but these also come in complementary colors that make blending a breeze.
To get the look above, start with two coats of "Jolt", the lightest yellow and orange polish. After they dry, paint a glob of "Bang," the medium orange-yellow shade, onto a makeup sponge and dab it over the top 2/3 of your nail. Repeat on each finger, then use the same technique to add "Exploded," the darkest orange, to just the tips! Finish off with a regular clear topcoat, making sure the swipe it along to free edge of your nail to really seal in all the layers of polish.

These stars always have a hot guy on their arms. Steal their moves and you will, too!
1. "Flirting works the best when you're yourself. My move is making a joke or smiling. As girls, we can give guys that "look"-it's literally batting your eyelashes, giving a subtle look, and a small smile. We just have that kind of power, which is awesome." - Jordin Sparks

2. "A lot of my friends could easily text a guy that they like him, but they're too shy. I think you need to feel comfortable around a guy as a friend before you like-like them. If you're not comfortable in front of him, then it is going to take a toll on the relationship and you won't be able to just talk to him normally." - Kylie Jenner
