The Nail Files: Neon Highlight

    I love the neon fad and your nails look awesome. I have the Illamasqua one, but haven’t tried it yet. I swiped on the MAC one in the store and it was just ok, not as bright as I would have imagined it to be. For some reason, I’m loving neon pinks and purples right now.

    I bought the Milani neon polish in Teal and it’s not neon at all. It’s a pretty color, but neon, not so much. I wanted the one that you have but it was sold out at the stores I checked.

    I just tried OPI Did It On ‘Em which is a yellowish/greenish color(kinda like the color in your pic). So fun and fab for Spring! I love trying new colors because it is a very inexpensive way to accessorize with color and add a little POW to your outfit!

    Love the yellow color. I am still on the fence whether it looks good on my dark skin tone.

    Oooh, I think I need that Milani color that you are wearing! That looks so good on you! And the jewelry, too. I have the neon Essie, Funky Limelight. It’s so bright, it’s obnoxious and I love it, lol!

    Thanks everyone! I was on the fence about neons but after trying this color I’m definitely feeling neon brights for Spring and Summer! I’ll definitely be posting more throughout the season!

    I love the neon look, but not so much on me. I tend to do banana yellow; just as loud but more kind to my skin tone.

    I didn’t want to try neon yellow while I was working at my corporate job. Now that I’m no longer there, I finally did yellow and I LOVE it! Next up, neon green!
