Strong bursts of color are everywhere in fashion. They’ll be with us this Summer, and through the Fall. Michael Kors, for example, featured lots of neon colors in his Fall 2009 collection during Fashion Week.
Maybe it’s that neon is just so bright it makes you feel happy, or maybe it’s a longing to be back in the pop art world of the 60’s. Regardless of why you love them, neon is here to stay. Essie’s founder Essie Weingarten also loves neon. Her limited edition, Essie Neon Collection features four bright neon Nail Polishes $9.00 each that make a true statement on fingers and toes. From left to right you can see: Flirty Fuchsia (clear, bright neon magenta); Funky Limelight (a brilliant day-glo yellow that reminds me of a highlighter for nails); Perky Purple (bold, clear, bright violet) and Punchy Pink (a hot pink so bright you almost need to squint)! The colors look bright in the photo and on your nails, but they look appropriate in some strange, wacky way, as if you’d colored them with neon magic markers and then added a gloss. They are eye-catching and definitely not for a board room meeting, but for the weekends, parties, or casual days, they’re delightful!
These are true show-offs, so your nails need to be well shaped, and it’s best to use a base coat and a topcoat since neons are quite matte. Essie’s Protein Base Coat and Essie’s fast-drying Good to Go top coat are perfect partners. The effort will be worth it, I promise!
