Even though I own a bunch of day-glo neon polishes, I rarely wear them. They’re cool but the opacity issues and streakiness that plague traditional neons make them a bother to apply. Plus, they can be a bit too much for everyday life.

That’s why I find the Essie Neons 2014 so refreshing. They’re well pigmented and aren’t as in-your-face. That’s just two of the reasons it’s one of my Top 10 nail polish collections of the summer.

Thankfully, we’re seeing some non-traditional neons this season, like Essie’s version and now the Maybelline Color Show Bleached Neons, which are a not-so-in-your-face take on the day-glow brights we typically associate with the genre. I decided to tackle one of my first PinspiratioNAIL pins, a look I’ve been wanting to try for a while now, with these punchy new shades.
