American Apparel Neon Nail Polish and Review

Would You Wear This New Neon Nail Polish?

American Apparel's new Neon nail polishes ($6 each) are traffic-stoppingly bright, even in the bottle. They also happen to be more than a little reminiscent of the late '80s and early '90s DayGlo trend. After putting up a photo of the Neon Yellow, Neon Red, and Neon Coral shades on Facebook, our awesome fans wanted to see a picture, so here they are. (Remember: if you want to see something on the site, would like pictures of a product, or have a question, just ask Team Bella on Facebook.) So to see the neon polishes on and get a full review, just keep reading.


I really like these shades, even though they're so bright that they're distracting me as I type this. They're also fun colors, particularly the coral and the "red" (which is actually a pretty orange-pink by most standards). And because they're so opaque, you'll find that with two coats you'll be good to go.

My only qualms about these are the drying time and texture. Lots of neon polishes take longer to set, but the coral and yellow were still not dry almost an hour later. Also, since the polish is so viscous, it's easy to streak the bottom layer when you're applying the second one. I might suggest thinning it down a little with a quick-dry topcoat to make it easier to use. For the price, though, they're great shades and absolutely perfect for warmer-weathered seasons.

The nail polish brand NEON from American Apparel is absolutely horrible, not only did the nail polish leave every single one of my fingers stained, but I noticed a label on the back of the nail polish stating that the nail polish contains a chemical that causes cancer, birth defects and other reproductive defects! This is absolutely absurd! How is a company even allowed to sell such an item?! I want a refund!

I couldn't do the neon yellow, but the pink one is fun.

It's probably the most "tame" of the bunch, but I am really digging the red one.

Yes I would. Would I need a white base coat to get the full effect?
