Neon Nail Trend: Yay or Nay?

One of this Summer's hottest nail trends is neon nails. I love bold nail polish, but I wasn't sure about wearing neon. My clothes and lipstick are usually on the brighter side and I wondered if a neon manicure would clash.




I decided to try an old L'Oreal nail polish that I have never worn. I got it from my Redbook party a couple of years ago and decided to finally see how it looked on me.



Not too bad! L'Oreal New Money (affiliate) is a little more muted than other lime green nail lacquers I've seen. I did find this polish to be very streaky and I had to put three coats on to get this look.


I plan to play around with a few other colors and maybe do a neon color-blocking on my nails. Be sure to follow along on Instagram to see how it turns out!

What do you think about neon nails?

  1. The colour looks great. But having to apply 3 coats to make it look good is a turn off. So I'm torn.....

  2. I love the color, but you're right, I can see the streaks. That would turn me off if I have to apply a lot of polish to cover up the streaking. #ProductReviewParty

  3. Great color! It always hard with yellows and limes because in nearly every case I've found you have to apply so many coats! Three isn't ALL that bad, though, I guess. :)

  4. The neon is truly beautiful. I'll admit, I am obessed and stuck on the neon pink though. I have been using the neon pink on my toes for many years. I even walk with my own nail polish in my bag so when I get my pedicure done I pop out my own neon pink for my feet LOL. But this color you share is beautiful. I think It's time I open up my mind and change up my color a bit LOL.

  8. I think I am the only one with like 5 bottles of nail polish. I just never have the time to paint nails but I know when I do find the time I make sure everyone sees it by putting my hands out lol. The brighter the color the better

  13. I usually go for bold colors during the warmer months. This summer I've had white nail polish the entire time. I use several coats because I like my polish to provided maximum coverage.
