Mani of the Week: Highlighter Yellow

Inspiration

I've been searching for the perfect neon yellow shade. I wanted something in your face, shockingly bright. For those non-nail addicts, quality neon nail polish colors are very hard to find. They usually chip easily, separate quickly or run really thin. I've had my eye on this POP Beauty nail glam color for quite some time but didn't want to shell out the $10. But after many failed neon yellow attempts - I had to try it!



It definitely stands out in the bottle!


The color is "Twenty Three Yellow." Not as clever as OPI names...


This is three (very dry) shades built on top of a base coat.


After having it on a for a few days I realized that it literally is the same color as my highlighter (lol!).

It is the best neon shade I've found so far. Have you found one better?

  3. I'm so jealous. I wish I could wear bright colors at work, but can't :(

    I'm sure you know by now I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to stuff so naturally I have a bunch of nail polish at home that I don't even get to use in so many colors. I should surrender them to you since you at least can wear them all the time.

    Happy New Year!

  4. That's brilliant. As a ginger I have such pale pinkish skin that I just don't think I could pull off brights!

  5. Whenever I wear a funky colored nail polish I always worry about it matching with the things I'll wear that week. Did you find this one limited your clothing choices? I love the bold color but am not sure I could pull something like that off.

  6. I'm wondering how sheer this nail polish is? And how many coats you applied in the photos? Seems a bit sheer in one of the photos but not in the others - so hard to tell.

    I tried Spoiled by Wet N’ Wild in “Did I dye it too blonde?” and though I never made it to three coats, I ultimately put a white coat under it to get it to really pop because it was so sheer. That one seemed a bit smudgy but I'm going to give it another shot. For $2 it let me try a pop of yellow but I'm interested in trying it again and if it doesn't work I want to find a better quality neon yellow.

    I only did it on one nail and did the others a bright pink - Sinful Colors in "Bikini." I'm obsessed with pairing neon (pink, yellow, orange) and neutrals (khaki, tan, navy etc) at the moment and think it's a great combo.

    Let us know on the sheerness of this - I'm really curious because I don't know if the WNW will ever give me that next day still super smooth look I want.
