This season fluorescent colors are the trend for fingers and toes. When I browse the beauty supply nail polish aisles, I have thoughts of 80’s pop princesses, bright surfer jams (remember those?), and jelly bracelets. Nail polish colors are shocking again. Neon pink, sun yellow, lime green, electric blue: all shades of the rainbow are accounted for.
While many women are shy with their manicure color, toes have the obvious advantage of being below the typical “looking” range. And these bright colors beg to be shown off in sandals or bare against the sand- and they look even better with a faux tan!

For a quick pick-me-up, I’m now sporting Schiap by NARS. This polish is part of their 2008 collection and fits the bold and bright nail trend to a T. Schiap is a “Shocking Pink” creme that shines like patent leather. I used 2 coats to get even and thorough coverage. The formula applied nicely and dried pretty darn quick. A clear top coat really made the color pop.
The cost is a bit of a splurge, but you should get many, many, many applications out of this bottle.
NARS polishes are available on NARScosmetics.com or for $18 a bottle.
