Neon Nails…Have You Rocked Them?!

We recently gave our Sheckter’s the scoop on neon nails. Meg from Meg’s Makeup told us all about her neon faves and why she thinks anyone can rock ‘em (we know you were a little concerned last time!). Hear her out and let us know if you’ve tried the trend since we spoke last….

From Rihanna to Diane Kruger, neon nails are the top summertime trend. We saw a spring filled with steely grays, sexy smokes and muted taupes. It was all fairly drab for our digits…until summer arrived! If you’re wearing a French manicure, then you might want to grab the nail polish remover.

Neon ‘80s-inspired nails are everywhere and on everyone! Katy Perry’s nails in China Glaze’s Yellow Polka Dot Bikini ($5.99 at SallyBeauty.com) got as much attention as her blue wig. That bottle is in the China Glaze Poolside Collection—and we know nothing says summer like poolside! China Glaze captured every hue, with fun names like Towel Boy Toy (blue—$5.99 at SallyBeauty.com) or Sun-Worshipper (orange—$5.99 at SallyBeauty.com).

This trend is not just for the rock star or tween. Even companies known for their more conservative clients are supplying to meet the massive demand of the neon nail. YSL cannot keep their new La Laque line in stock. With colors like Ultra Orange and Ultra Violet…it’s so ultra hot it’s sold out everywhere!

The great thing about this look is that it’s inexpensive and anyone can pull it off. If you’re really shy, you can get away with wearing it on your tootsies! It’s this summer’s hottest accessory, and it’s bold enough to stand alone on the beach. (Um, who’s wearing jewelry to the shore?! Yeah, no one!) Give the neons a whirl, turn up Def Leppard, and pour some, er, nail polish on those bare digits and toes. The ‘80s  are back for the summer!

GIRL TALK TIME: Would you rock this trend? If you have, what was your color of choice? Do you only wear something this bright on your toes? Are you against wearing shocking colors to the office? Let us know!

    I love all the neons. I’ve been rockin’ them all summer and getting tons of complements. Just a tip for all u girls if you start with a basecoat of white nailpolish your neons will be even brighter.
