American Apparel Neon Red Nail Polish

American Apparel NEON RED Nail Lacquer – £9

I picked up this AA Neon Red nail polish quite a long time ago and haven’t actually worn it as much as I thought I would. I was expecting bright neon but was a little disappointed as to me it looks more like a bright red, rather than a neon. Apparently it helps if you apply a base of nude polish underneath the neon, but I haven’t tried that yet. 

I think the AA nail polishes are good though and apply nicely with quite a long brush. I think the price is too high, but I wouldn’t expect any less from AA. 

What do you think of this colour?

    You’re really good at painting nails. Nothing annoys me more than seeing badly painted nails – that’s my OCD coming through haha!

    It’s such a lovely colour even though I won’t call it “NEON”. Looks great on also! x

    Some are a lot brighter than other in this range, purple and blue aren’t neon but nice colours nonetheless. I think the green, yellow and orange-y colours are the best in this range, and my mum recently discovered that they glow in UV light! Briliant for nights out!

    I love the glossy finish to this nail varnish, but being labelled ‘neon’ you’d expect a brighter colour – it’s still lovely though and I’d definitely use it :) ox

    You’re right, the colour in the bottle looks more neon than on your nails! It’s still a lovely colour AND office appropriate! :)

    It looks more like a coral than a red! I love it!

    I love the neon green polish, but i agree with you on this, it’s a lovely bright red but definitely shouldn’t be considered as a ‘neon’ xx

    It’s a gorgeous colour, but agree that I’m unsure it’s worth the price tag!
