Trend Alert: Summertime Neon Nails

Check out the neon nails on Diane Kruger! Ever since the Costume Institute Gala I've been dying to talk about how she matched her shoes to her nails.

Celebrities and especially teenagers are going bonanza over the new fun, pop-colored nail polish quads from Essie and Chanel. They contain four minisized bottles of pink, yellow, orange, and either a blue or purple high-shine varnish. I'll be the first to admit that these electric '80s-inspired shades are fresh, but I think I would only dare to wear them on my toes. Are you confident enough to cruise around in these colors?

Color Power from Essie ($15 for four) is a great way to brighten up your fingers or toes for summertime. The white box has bright flowers printed on it and houses a red, yellow, orange, and a shimmery opalescent, bright-blue lacquer with flirty names such as cool click, flirty girl, crush, and txt me.

The Chanel Robertson Collection ($25 for four) is set to launch online in July. This minirange is named after Robertson Boulevard, the young and hip shopping street in Los Angeles where Chanel has just opened a boutique.

The collection includes a pink, purple, yellow, and tangerine polish and each shade is named after other famous streets nearby like Melrose, Rodeo Drive, LA Sunrise, and LA Sunset. Ain't it grand when beauty and fashion can collaborate like this!

if i had halle barry's skin tone i might try yellow, but it would otherwise be scary-looking -- beyonce's green nails are not attractive, so i'm not even sure anything outside of pinks & purples really works

I would def try it...already own a hot pink nail polish that ppl comment on all the time! Not sold on the yellow one, but i would be open to trying it and see what happens! Maybe ppl at the office will have something new to talk about besides my odd collection of rings...

I painted my nails neon pink just last night, I am so on the ball! Sadly it was not Chanel though, but Rimmel, which I must say gave a pretty strong colour for a cheap nail varnish. Only £2.99!

Day-Glo colors were the best part of the 80s!!

I've taken to wearing bright orange and lemon yellow as a way of rebelling against the British weather (which has been astonishingly nice of late), so I could definitely go with some matching polish!

I'm so going to buy that Essie set! I adore it. And Chanel polish...nothing beats it.

aimeeb: I agree, yellow is just odd. Particularly on me, I would look like a corpse. :eek:

I'm mostly in your camp, Bella! I'm generally not a fan of unnatural nail colors, particularly as a lady on the far side of 30. I made an occasional exception for black, when that was the thing, but mostly on my toes. At the moment I have OPI Russian Navy on fingers and toes, but we had a couple of social events this past weekend that allowed me to indulge my eccentricity. However, those bright pinks really tempt me--especially the Chanel. It isn't *completely* unnatural, since it's still in the pink family. I think I can pull that off and still not look too unprofessional.

I love bright nail colors, especially for the summer. Well actually, it's nice for when the weather is dreary too as something to brighten things up. I'd wear these colors. Why not? :)
