Let’s face it. Neon nails aren’t always cute. In fact, they’re pretty ugly most of the time.
But when neon nails are done right, they can be some of the most striking nail designs out there.
This being said, we’ve hunted down 16 examples of neon nails that are drop dead gorgeous.
1. Neon Giraffe Print 🦒
Animal print is always fun, but the situation is extra fun when there’s neon involved and extra extra fun when it’s giraffe print.
2. Multi-Colored Neon Tips
We love multi-colored French tips, and we love them even more when they’re multi-colored neon tips.
3. Funky Neon Swirls
Do these neon nails make you happy, because they make us happy. Like, really happy. 😀
4. Neon Rainbows 🌈
We’re totally feeling these neon rainbows (and everything else that’s happening with these nails).
