Nail Polish Hoarding. So Hot Right Now.

I may have posted my Spring/Summer 2012 Nail Polish Picks video yesterday but that doesn't stop me from going HAM at the drugstore (Shoppers Drug Mart, for all my Canadian ladies) when I saw a shiny new Essie collection on display. Throw in a Sally Hansen glitter for good measure.


Seriously though how amazing are these shades? From pink to yellow - Lights, Camera and Action. The Sally Hansen glitter is called "Ring a Ding" and it's glorious. 
I heard that the yellow-orange shade "Action" is a pain to apply and I must agree... it's nowhere near as co-operative as the others and it does dry down darker. A great tip that I have to get it to show up true to colour is to use a white nail polish as a base (I'm sure that something like Butter London Nail Foundation could work too). 

I find neon nail polishes like these to be the perfect way to incorporate this summer trend into your "wardrobe" without shelling out the money on neon clothes and accessories. I personally am not the most colourful dresser so for me a splash of neon on the nails paired with airy blush, white and beige clothes for summer sounds just right.

What's your take on the neon craze?

  1. I love Essie's tart deco and Nicki Minaj for Opi Did it on em. Tart deco isn't that neon, but it's such a gorgeous colour. Both get me lots of compliments.

  10. I agree, I'd rather wear a neon nail polish than clothes/accessories, it's a much cheaper way to participate in the craze as you called it haha!

    Essie is becoming my favourite nail polish brand, I need to get my hands on those shades!

  12. I have a shade of neon pink that I love wearing! And I agree, it's a great way to be 'trendy' without spending hundreds of dollars on bags/clothes/etc. Neon clothing isn't exactly my style, but neon nails? I can handle those. :D

  14. Action looks AMAZING with a tan. @Alma I have tart deco and I have to agree. It's a fantastic color to own.

  15. I agree, I also love how you can pull off an insane neon nail polish a lot more easily than an item of clothing the same color. xx

  22. Love neon but after buying 8 Essie nail varnishes I am not so sure I like them. I feel like I have to use 3 coats to get the color the manicurist seems to get in 2. What do they do that we dont do!?
