I love the hot neons that I’m seeing this summer. After such a long, cold Canadian winter (thanks to the Polar Vortex!), bright neon nails are my way of celebrating the fact that summer is finally here in full swing.
The trick to making neon nail polish really pop is to first apply a white base coat. This acts like a paint primer and helps achieve the true neon colour you’re going for. Try: O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat in Put A Coat On! ($11, 15 mL). And be sure to seal your polish with a good top coat to limit chips.
Looking to brighten up your digits? Try these colours:

If a neon manicure is too bold for you, stick to sporting these bright colours on your toes.
