Polish Finish Series: Neon

Hi there!
Today's episode of Polish Finish Series will be about Neons. You might think that Neon only describes color, but it is also a finish. First of, into the category of course all of the "color-neons" fall. These very vibrant and extremely bright colors are all probably Neons. But what is also typical for a Neon is the semi-matte finish. Very true Neons always dry like this, and that's one of the differences from a vibrant creme. So if your polish is very vibrant and dries semi-matte, it's 100 percent a Neon.
Because of the semi-matte finish they dry quickly and are rather easily to apply. Normal for a Neon is 2 to 3 coats.
Neon colors are almost glowy, that's how bright they are, and they're also very clear colors. You'll probably never be able to find a muted neon ;) They're especially likely in yellow, hot pink, bright blue, bright green and bright purple. But these are not the only colors ;) Neons are especially popular in summer.
I only have one true neon, from the Italian brand Chresy, in the color 65. It's a bright pink with warm undertones, and it dries semi-matte with 2 thin coats. In real life the color is way more vibrant, but that just wouldn't show up in my pictures :/ Pinks are already hard to photograph, and neon finishes make that even harder...
Do you have Neons? Or do you like the finish in general?
Until next time,
xoxo, Misch


  1. I have no neon nail polishes... i prefer colours a little bit more discreet, but I must confess that yours looks really nice!

  2. Not sure, but I think I don't have any...too much for me! :-)

  3. @kashmir: thanks :) yes, Neons are also not my favorite of them all ;)

    @Salander: yes, but prefer colors that aren't as bright, right?
