Summer Beauty Trend: Do You Neon?

There are so many trends from the ’80s that have come back  into rotation, but one of my absolute favorites is neon, specifically in the form of nail polish. It’s a tricky trend, only right for those who don’t mind a little attention, but super fun and perfect for summer. If you’re ready to go neon, here are some tips:

  1. If you’re able to spend the extra dough, go for a gel manicure. They last longer (like, 2 weeks without a chip!) and the neon hues of the gel manicure nail polishes really pop.
  2. When wearing neon polish (or any bright colors), it’s best to go with shorter nails filed in a square/oval shape.
  3. If you’re doing an at-home mani/pedi, apply a coat of white nail polish as a base for the neon…the color will be brighter and last longer.
  4. Don’t be afraid to mix and match! No need to match your mani and pedi when wearing neon. Go for yellow hands and pink feet (as shown) or mix blue and green!
  5. Speaking of colors…pink, orange and yellow hues look great on tan and brown complexions, while green and blue are perfect for lighter skin tones.
Happy Polishing!
