Everyone knows that Neons are big for summer nails… Some neon shades I just cannot do, like highlighter yellow. With my pale-ish skin, that is just a no. I am obsessed, however, with the “perky purple” in Essie’s new summer Neon Collection. The other shades are: punchy pink, funky limelight and flirty fuchsia.
The colors go on matte, which is going to be a huge trend for fall, but you can always go shiny by adding a clear top coat.
Recently, I read a tip that if you like the matte look, but want a top coat to make your mani last, add a layer of base coat over the color. I haven’t tried it, but it’s interesting.
The Essie Neon Collection is available at www.essie.com and at salons and beauty stores for $9.00 a bottle. But the only problem is my fav nail place, Fancy Nails, is a little, um, slow to get the latest nail polishes. Maybe I should go to Gloss? They probably have it, but I love my ladies at Fancy Nails. Hmm.
Oh, the decisions!
