New Nails: American Apparel Neons




I picked up 3 of the new American Apparel Neon nail polishes the other day. I got Neon Yellow, Neon Green & Neon Orange. The other colours available are Neon Red, Neon Coral, Neon Violet & Neon Blue so you can have a whole neon rainbow on your fingertips. I must say I really love these colours! Kinda wish I'd bought all seven now. I'm definitely a bright nail polish person, I have hardly any dark colours in my collection but these 3 are unlike any others that I have. Even the brightest Barry M ones have nothing on these. Its not really apparent in the photos but in real life these are the exact same colour as highlighter pens. The yellow is especially bright. I'd not tried any of the American Apparel polishes before but I'm pretty impressed with the quality. The colour is opaque in two coats but I'd definitely add some Seche Vite or your other favourite top coat if you like a lot of shine like I do. The formula is fairly thick so a quick dry top coat is the way to go. Another good thing about them is that they are DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde-free. I spent a fortune on some Zoya polishes when I was pregnant just because they didn't have these ingredients. The American Apparel Neon nail polishes cost £7 each or you can get 3 for £17.

  3. Loving these. I'm so bored with all my polishes and everything in the shops just seems to look the same. These really pop. Need to get a few for my holidays!
