“Complement neon nails with a pop of neon makeup. Spotlight your lips or eyelids in a get-noticed color like ultra-violet or hot pink.”
Rock neon nails without looking the part of a bona fide m-m-material-girl-living-in-a-material-world (circa 1980-something) by opting for nail polishes that rival the highlighter pens of your youth: bright ‘n light is in style. Try electric yellows, oranges, pinks and blues, which add playfulness and a sense of freshness to white or light grey clothing.
We love Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Color in Cyber Frost (neon lilac) and Cyber Lite (neon yellow), and Revlon Nail Enamel Fruit Temptation in Passionfruit, which actually smells like passionfruit when once it dries. Rescue Beauty makes a saturated Yellow Fever shade that brightens up a wardrobe full of navy, gray and black. It also kicks up summer whites and safari neutrals in khaki and olive.
