Bleached Neons? Such an oxymoron right? That’s exactly what Maybelline Bleached Neons Color Show Nail Polish a total oxymoron! Bright yet not as vibrant as a neon but subtle and washed out with color that appears charmingly faded out!
I think neons scream the 80’s to me and although the 80’s trend has a way of popping up every Summer I feel like Maybelline did so much of a better job with the paleness of the Bleached Neons Collection. These are more wearable shades! Vibrant yet subtle, bright yet washed up for a look that’s unique and not all about neon!
The new Maybelline Bleached Neons Color Show Nail Polish go with lighter, muted shades of wearable neon in this limited edition collection for Summer 2014. Available in seven limited edition shades and launching this June at drugstores the collection provides wearable colors to to embrace a faded out neon look for Summer.
These washed out shades of color are the perfect compliment to your Summer looks adding just the right amount of color to tips without being too outrageous. Think of them as that perfectly worn out t-shirt or pair of jeans you so dearly love!
These have a cream finish with some glossiness that varies from shade to shade but no sparkle or shimmer of any kind. They are translucent at first application but with three layers (swatched below in two applications) they become more opaque. They dry very fast so I felt pressed to act quickly to apply them. I get about two of wear before they chip on me which is fairly fast but in their defense I do type quite a bit daily mind you this is without a base coat. The nice part is they are quite affordable at around $3 each depending where you buy them so you can get the entire Summer range for as little as $20 bucks or so should you wish!

I think the shades are super fun. Neons are nice don’t get me wrong but I think they prove difficult to wear sometimes. These washed out colors are a little easier to wear so the bring the fun of neon but the subtly of a pastel!
