Step 2- Apply 1-2 coats of white or super pale nail polish. I alternated a bright white with a pale pink by Maybeline(sp?) called Ballet Pink.  White is def best to show neon on. Allow to dry fully.

If you look at the top pic you can see that the middle finger is brightest. It is the one I used white polish on. This is why I recommended the white. The green sharpie too much on lt pink.
