Claires Neon Holos: Nail Polish Swatches

Claire's jen jen nail polish

Claire's Cosmetics nail polish

Hope your having a wonderful Saturday. Summer is slowly creeping around the corner and you guys know what that means, Bright Neon Colors! Yep, the brights are back and I have tons of eye catching shades to show you.

To kick off this festive summer trend, I wanted to start with my favorites from Clarie's. One thing I love about Claire's Neons, well two things: Each shade has a holographic glitter effect and most colors aren't as bright as your typical neons, for example: Color Club's Electro Candy, which I'll be previewing next week.

Each shade is infused with a mild holographic glitter effect and dries to a semi gritty matte finish. Now, it's not as gritty as a full fledged glitter nail polish. I don't think you should have any worries with that.

Jen Jen (above) - a yellow green (lime) with holographic glitter. Jen Jen and Lime Shine were the ones that took a four coat application to achieve the bottle color.

The brighter neon colors for the brave: Lime Shine, Juluis, Lulu Belle, and the not so bright for anyone: Flame (kinda bright but not overly), Meg Peg, Pink Rose, Yel and Jen Jen.

These are available at Claries and retail for $3.50/ea. What your guys take on Neons? I'll wear anything, of course! Have a wonderful Saturday!

I love the brights! Julius and Pink Rose are my faves here :)

My faves are Flame and Jen Jen. Do these colors dry with a smooth or gritty surface?

Steph said on Apr 11th, 2009 1:21 am
Hi Jinnzor, Awwwe - Your such a doll! Your nails are my "wish I could only have long nails but can't" :) Hi BellaDonnaForte, Me too, aren't they the best! Great choices! Hi Tessi, I can't believe I forgot to mention that! A semi bit gritty, but nothing like a true glitter polish. Definitely manageable! :)

Lime Shine and Jen Jen are awesome.

Denny said on Apr 11th, 2009 2:15 am
Yes, Meg Peg is a bad a** color. I have to get this one! It looks almost like Superstar's Rising Star Razzberry. Do you have that color too?

Lucy said on Apr 11th, 2009 2:45 am

Your nails put me off the polish. You have stubby spoon nails

I love these colors, and unfortunately I did not know about this collection when it came out. Would you happen to have any extra bottles that you would be willing to sell or know of someone who might? I'd appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

Shelly said, on Aug 19th, 2012 3:43 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Jill said, on Aug 8th, 2012 5:47 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Steph said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 4:14 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

thanks :)

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

Debra said, on May 26th, 2012 4:59 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
