Cut Out & Outlined Nails with Neon Mint & Neon Glitter

I really like the idea of cut out nail art, the technique which just leaves a small part of the bare nail visible. Of course it looks best if the natural nail is not stained at all, but my nails are usually a bit stained. So to prepare for this look I buffed my nails and used a whitening base coat (Essie - Beam Up). Once again I made China Glaze - Highlight Of My Summer the star of this design, but there's also another favorite involved: Lush Lacquer - Clowning Around. Although I prefere Clowning Around on a white base, I think it does look interesting on mint as well. My white color is Flormar - M103. For the triangle I found an awesome video tutorial by kirakiranail on Youtube. Maybe I'm just a bit dense, but I never figured out how cut out triangles actually work. I always thought they just free-hand the triangle, fill in the rest and then do a lot of clean up. But actually you can use a piece of tape and just leave a small strip on one side of the triangle to grab it later. Then all you have to do is complete the triangle with a nail art brush. You can see the process in her tutorial. What do you think about cut out nail art? Would you wear it?
