I SAID TONE IT DOWN, NEON!
All caps is sort of how I feel about neons, sometimes. They're like your parents when you were a teenager, you feel like you can't take them anywhere!
Too loud, too bright, too bold.
I get it.
So, how do you tone down a neon polish?
You could wear it without a white base.
You can see in that post, that some of them are a lot less bright without a white base.
Tips on Tuesday ALERT!
Do a neon French Tip!
Whenever I have a strong desire to do a neon on my fingers, I usually do tips. That way, I can still get away with wearing such a loud polish to work, because it isn't too stand-outish. You get the little bit o' pop without all the wham-bam in your face kind of color.
