An Introduction of Neon Green Nails
Since it was fashionable in the 90s, neon green nails have only recently come back into fashion. The hue is associated with punk fashion, ’60s hippy culture, and rave culture. It denotes freedom of expression and a rejection of social conventions. Everyone needs a change from their usual, boring nails, and ought to give bright green at least once in their lifetime.

Neon Green Nail Inspiration
Glossy: The first thing that comes to mind when you view the original manicure is glossy nails. The shine in almost all nail polishes can be increased by using a topcoat like OPI Infinite Shine, CND Viny lux Topcoat, or Sally Hansen Big Shiny. Glossy complements neon nails well since it makes them shine more brilliantly than a neon does naturally.
Matte: To give your bright green nails even more edge, make them matte. Since matte nail polish colors are uncommon, a matte topcoat is required to create a matte finish. OPI Matte Topcoat, Sally Hansen Big Matte, or Essie Matte About You are excellent matte topcoats to use over your neon green nails.
Glitter: If you don’t think neon green stands out enough for you, add some glitter. It looks best to paint on your neon green color first, then cover it with glitter, as doing an entirely glittered nail can lessen the brilliance of the neon hue.
Gel: Gel polish is shinier and thicker than ordinary polish, and it also lasts longer. This is available with or without UV light curing, and the UV-cured gel polishes last longer before needing to be replaced. Revlon Color Stay and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel are two brands of non-UV curing gel polish.
Geometric Lines: Geometric shapes that are created by lines are either abstract or provide a larger picture. This can be done by drawing a single line along the middle of your nail or by drawing a variety of lines throughout the entire nail. These lines have the same vibe as neon green nails, so they blend well together.
Ombre: Ombre neon green nails are a great method to tone down the appearance. Although it might seem impossible, this method works well at temporarily calming down neon green. The majority of your nail is bare, similar to the modern French tip, and the tip is neon green that has faded in.
French Tip: Making a French tip is a nice alternative if you love the color neon green but don’t want to dedicate an entire nail to it. French tips may appear old but dyeing them neon green updates the style. A triangular tip, a thin outline of the finish, or just tipping one nail corner are a few of the current trends in French manicures.
