Dropping Knowledge: Pop Those Neon Nail Polishes Monday 18 June, 2012

Welcome to “Dropping Knowledge,” a (hopefully) two-second quick tip that I’ve learned somewhere or heard from someone or just dug up out of the annals of my mind. Or from a book.

Do you want to make your neon (or, at least, semi-bright) polish sear the retinas of everyone within eye-shot? Remember when I mentioned how Revlon Nail Art Neon polish (available next month) requires you to polish your neon over a white base coat? Well, seems to be the trend to try out: OPI just announced they’ll be releasing limited edition “Outrageous Neons,” a set of four neons that you layer over the “Neon White Base Coat.” (Check out the video below.) So if you’re looking to bump up your bright nail color, lay down a layer of white first to really make it pop!

Side story: Because I cried myself to sleep over not jumping on buying Rescue Beauty Lounge’s IKB: 2012 when it was available, I started hunting down “like” polish colors. I found one, sort of: Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel in Royal. Now, it’s not exactly bright, but it is a nice, two-coat royal blue without shimmer (which, isn’t easy to come by). And, when layered over a stark opaque white base, it is brrrrrr-ight. I only had to use one coat of Royal, and the results were insanity times 23,453. Check out the results in the photo above!

Will you be bumping up your brights by polishing them over opaque white nail lacquer?
