Proper neon, fluorescent (sp?), highlighter pink nail varnish

There's lots of hot pinks, fuscia, coral, etc but nothing really neon, highlighter pink.

Friend of mine had her nails done and they used one from China Glaze, but she couldn't remember the shade of it (some people are so unhelpful wink). I've looked on line but can't tell which is the right one.

Really reluctant to spend money buying another 4, 5, 6, 7... bottles that are just going to be discarded onto the growing pile of not-neon-pink bottles.

Maybe I should just give up and colour them in with a Stabilo Boss and be done with it!

I have one from W7 which is fluro pink. Will have a look when I get home for the shade name/number. Try Models Own or a cheap brand like Stargazer (?)

Don't Barry M do neon shades?

Barry M, the best is in the gelly shine range

I got a lovely neon pink in my free Clinique gift bag.

Home Bargins is doing nail varnish that really does actually glow in the dark.

I've been looking for the perfect one for a couple of years and my favourite so far is Illamasqua Collide.It stays shiny and goes on well,lovely colour too.None of the others I have come anywhere close.

By the way ,forgot to say the China Glaze your friend has is probably Shocking Pink.It's certainly a highlighter colour but it's a pain to apply.3 thin coats and loads of patience and topcoat required!smile .

Well rather unhelpfully there is no sticker with shade name or number but I think it's this one

MooMinCow Wed 01-Jul-15 14:38:06

It's the first of the 2 pinks no.14

They say to apply neon over a base of white to get the proper neon effect

Brilliant! Thank you. Have been scarily and obsessively searching for at least 3 years

Will give them a try smile

I have that w7 one and it is proper fluoro pink, everyone comments on it

Discworld101 Wed 01-Jul-15 21:33:36

Claire's Accessories also do a good neon pink.

nickdrakeslovechild Wed 01-Jul-15 21:43:39

My first thought was the w7 one, it's so bright, not seen a fluorescent one as good. And yes to the white base.

I've just applied China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, it's neon coral ,The pink in the same range is Pool Party.

Models own have several. The brightest one is called bubblegum. Its the ice neon collection.

Skinheadmermaid Wed 01-Jul-15 22:14:34

this one

Another vote for Models Own - I have the fluoro pink in it (and the yellow and the orange blush)and they are properly bright!! They look fab on toes of tanned feet!
