This post is for the lovely Ling, over at Pork Chop's Nest.
A while back, Ling wrote this post about all things neon yellow. One of her concerns was house yellow nail polish would suit yellow skin. Whilst I'm no expert in all things neon, I did conveniently have a little bottle of NYC glow worm tucked away, which is one of the brightest yellows you ever did see! I had never tried it before, and thought it was time to break it open to try and assist.
I couldn't quite capture the true colour via photos, so took a couple of snaps in different lighting to try and give a proper idea!
The shade was an extremely bright yellow, much more neon that Ling had posted on her blog, but I thought this might help give an idea. I've applied two coats of colour and no base coat as I was not planning on keeping this colour on.
Looking at the photos, I actually don't think it looks too bad. However, when I looked at my actual nails in real life it didn't seem to work. Do you remember in primary school when you used to draw on your nails with highlighters and pretend you were wearing nail polish? No? Maybe it's just me... but this is vaguely what it reminded me of! I suppose the fact that I was doing it in the office rather than for a night out or whatever might have been part of the issue too. I'm sure if it was for a night out and I was wearing an outfit that might match or complement might have made a huge difference.
Anyway, Ling, sorry I couldn't be more helpful but I hope that gives you somewhat of an idea! :) xx
