Neon nails are huge this summer season. Stars like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry have been rocking bright, look-at-me nails. The great thing about trying nail trends is that there’s no long term commitment. You can be 80’s bright today and completely bare next week, if you feel like it.
If you’re interested in giving neon nails a test run, try Milani’s Neon Specialty Nail Lacquer. Available in 8 blinding shades, this style makes a bold statement. Celebrity manicurist, Kimmie Kyees, says, “These colors are reminiscent of highlighters used back in the school days.”
Fluorescent nails are tricky, though. I’ve found that I end up layering about 5 coats of the color so that it doesn’t have a transparent look. I only recently discovered that the trick is to start with a base layer of white polish. Allow the white to dry completely (I didn’t, and ended up with a streaky mess!). Apply one or two coats of Milani’s Neon Nail Lacquer and you have a sexy matte look. I love highly glossed nails so I finished with a clear top coat. Allow to dry and voila!…your nails are summer ready! My favorite Milani Neon Nail Lacquer shade is Rad Purple. It looks great with my skin tone and is uber bright.
While you’re at the drugstore, pick up Milani’s 3D Holographic Nail Lacquer for after your 80’s revival. This unique polish contains pearl particles that change color in different lights and at different angles, giving a 3 dimensional effect. This one is available in 6 shades so pick one that fits your style. These are available for just $4.99.
Milani nail products can be found in any drugstore or at www.milanicosmetics.com.
