Trend Alert: Neon Nails Are Back And Brighter Than Ever
June 23, 2008
As a former 80's teenager, I shudder at the mention of mall bangs, acid wash jeans, and fringed leather jackets, but a beauty trend has returned to my open arms: neon-bright nail polish. Mind you, I will now display this trend on my toes rather than reinacting a full-on Wham! video effect but I encourage you to revisit your electric youth through your next pedicure and live your own 80’s beauty flashback.
Those of you who desire to be in on the next celebrity "it" thing should get in line for Chanel’s new exclusive Robertson Collection ($25 for four mini-polishes) in honor of its new store on uber-hip Robertston Boulevard in Los Angeles. Each of the limited-edition polishes is named for a trendy area or street in LA and comes in four hot shades of tangerine, pink, yellow, and purple. The collection will be available in July and will go quickly, so head to Chanel.com and get on the list.
Don't want to stand in the virutal line? Grab the Essie Neon Collection ($7), a collection of vibrant shades that will bring a smile to your face and a brand new look to your favorite sexy summer sandals.
There’s no denying it, ladies. 80’s bright nails have come back to the future.
