Friday's Flavor of the Week

This week's flavor of the week showcases two tropical and summery shades that I wore while cruising.  Unbeknownst to myself, I also implemented one of spring's biggest trends: neon! I didn't realize how trendy I was until after my nails were all painted and it hit me.  "That yellowish green hue sure is bright! It's practially NEON, it's so bright!" I thought to myself.  And that's when I realized that I might be able to sport the neon trend without decking myself in neon green from head to toe. =)  If I add a bright purse like this one and some cute sandals like these super cute Free People sandals, I'll se set!

So, how will you be sporting the neon trend?  Litte bits of neon in your nails and accessories?  Or will you go bold with neon jeans or a neon yellow shirt?

I'm linking up today with The Nail Files!

Eek...I am hesitant about the neon trend. I don't want to look too "Save by the Bell" with scrunchies and puffy paint!

Love the fun nails! And that gorgeous ring :)

What fun colors! I keep eying the neons but havent made a purchase yet. I would consider a neon bag. But no clothes unless it's subtle. Too many student at my work place are sporting neon for me to really want to try it. But I am very attracted to the other bright colors that out there.

Great way to sport neon! I just picked up some seriously bright pink polish... and I love the idea of using another bright color! I'm totally going to copy you now! lol

I am actually terrified of neons. I think it's because I don't want to look like a Vegas sign. hahaha! But I love the green on your nails!

Lisa said...

love your nails.

i recently bought a neon dress. thinking of wearing it with black tights and boots soon and then again in the spring with either leopard flats or black heels.

to tell you the truth I have never attempted any neon colors. I just think the colors don't look good on my warm skin tone. Neon colors look great on you, I like how you alternate the colors on your nail, looks really fun and cute!

I love your subtle neon with your nails...perfect...they look great!! I am not sure I would rock neon clothing, but maybe a scarf or jewelry in a neon would be fun!

LOVE the bright fingernail polish! I have been slowly becoming obsessed with neon things. I think I'm going to use small pops of neon like a neon bag or neon shoes!

I'm going with the neons this spring and love the nails! I've not done a 2 tone look yet but you've inspired me to try it out. And yes...for the most part I do wear what I showcase on the blog out...but don't worry, cocktail attire never makes it to the office :D

love this!! i'm digging neon pops everywhere.

Megan Mae said...

Gorgeous mani! I'm not too big on neon, so I'll probably stick with my usual color palette. If it works, it works.

I think the neon trend totally rocks when it's done in small doses like your nails here. Fab colors and love the ring!

Shea said...

I'm loving your neon nails! Mine are usually bare, but I'm starting to experiment a little with some color--I'll have to try neon next!

Super cute nails. With neon, a little goes a long way. I keep it minimal. Unlike my time in the 80's. LOL
