Revlon Nail Art Neons
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with fun nail colors and we can’t think of a better way than with Revlon’s new Nail Art Neons collection. Each color comes as double-ended stick with a white base coat and a sheer neon hue. Once you have created a white nail, you use the other end to create a neon nail. There are eight colors to choose from, each one retails for $8, and they’ll be in drugstores this month.
