Last summer I was obsessed with Essie’s neon nail polish line. There is just something about bright nails that just seem perfect during the summer. Celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees, who has worked with everyone from Lady Gaga to Britney Spears, agrees. She says, “neon nails make a statement,” says Kimmie. “They can be worn anytime you really want to accessorize with your nails. They are eye catching and definitely noticeable!” I recently tried out Milani’s New Neon Nail Lacquer, and it’s awesome! The line has great neon colors at super affordable prices ($4.99 each). And best of all, you can find them at your local drugstore.
Kimmie has some great neon nail polish tips. “The best way to wear neon colors is to apply one coat of a solid white polish, like Milani White Nail Lacquer, first,” she advises. “This creates a base for the neon that allows the color to almost glow on the nails once it is applied. But be sure to allow the white to dry a little before applying the neon colors so that it doesn’t streak. The Milani neon colors dry to a matte finish on their own, which is cool if you like that look, but you can also apply a shiny top coat, like Milani Quick Dry Top Coat for a high gloss shine.
By the way, I really love the Milani products I’ve tried so far. The lip gloss I reviewed 3D Glamor Gloss in Starshine has totally become my favorite gloss. And it was only $6.99–not bad!
