What's in a finish? - Neon
Hello everyone. It's time for another installment of my what's in a finish series, which also means it's Monday... Well, what better way to chase away those Monday blues than with Neon! Now while I own several neon polishes I have yet to use them for more than a dotticure which I wasn't happy with the results. So a few fellow bloggers were gracious enough to let me share their pictures with you. Please stop over and check out their blogs or pages. But before we get to the pics lets talk a little about neon polishes.
While the term Neon describes the color of the polish rather than the finish, neon's do have characteristics that are all their own. Most neon polishes dry to a semi-matte finish and are typically know for a streaky application. However, they are a fun way to add a pop of color to your manicure. Neon polishes are bright on their own but can be even brighter when layered over white. That's not the case with China Glaze Pink Voltage as shown below by Polished Prescription

Not all neon polishes are quite so in your face bright as shown by XO NOELLE in the next photo. So if your looking for something to ease your way into neon's this collection from LCN might be more your speed.

Still considered a neon polish this blue has a sort of muted neon feel to it. Perfect for a pop of color but not too bright at the same time.
Neon polishes also make for fun nail art as shown here by Amanda Loves Polish.
