Well, once again I've tried some newly bought neons on colourpops and once again they're nowhere near as vivid as in the pots.. See photo

See? They're pathetically insipid!
and these were sold as fine glitters!
fine glitter?? my ar$e! just look at the white - it's awful!

Does ANYONE have fine neons that hold their colour once top coated? Getting fed up of flushing my hard earned cash down the loo :-(((((

Green / blue look nice! I can see what you mean about other colours though.

I've seen geeks mention Martha Stewart glitters on here quite often, not sure if they stock neon colours? but it's worth a try. X

Could you possibly put those pots of glitter on eBay or put them too another use? If you've got children let them get creative with a bit of glue & glitter in the school holidays, make some funky pictures!

saves you wasting your money hun x

Thanx, will pass em on to her.

Martha Stewart neon glitters are the same, look vivid in the pot but wishy-washy on application:-(((

They look wishy washy because you are using them on their own or with clear :!:

Try using them over white, it really makes them pop :D

Curvygirl if you do try again on white could you please put another photo up please? I was about to buy neon glitter today but decided to wait. What brand did you buy?

Agreed, I think if on white they will be much brighter, the blue and green actually don't look too bad from this picture, so on white I think they'd look really vivid. try it and then yes, please take a picture again so we can see the difference

These glitters look like they are eBay glitters. Am I correct?? I tried these years ago and found the same. I now use Nail Graphix which I love. To use these ones up applying over white is a great idea, either that or add more than your usual mix or if using with gel then try scrubbing on instead of mixing xx

Also a good trick is to apply glitter top coat and apply glitter again x

I've seen young nails do neon glitters I really want to order them but worried they might not look as gd as they do on the Internet, has anyone used these?

I use all of the young nails glitters but the neons are no good for doing rockstars, they dont pop, if you know what i mean, they look great mixed with clear acrylic and used as glitter tips but they really are not heavy enough to be brushed over a gel polish. Iv got some uv glitters from glitter body art and these glow in uv light but would not be bright in normal light unless used in acrylic as its thicker and you get the benefit of the colour... I think there is a pic in my gallery of the neon glitter tips :) xx

The Martha Stewart neon glitters are nice & do hold their depth of colour but once top coat is applied they certainly aren't as 'Neon' as I'd like.
I too would be interested in Neon glitters that stay neon ;-)
Also if I'm doing glitters on colour pops I usually do a matching colour coat of Gelish too

Apologies I quickly scanned I didnt realise they were glitters , I didn't know they did them actually, Martha Stuart does she do the glitters specific for nail art? I did buy some glitter i wasn't too bothered bout it x

I have these but I haven't been able to get such bright/neon color out of them.

How did you manage this? Did you use polish, gel? Did you use the respective colors or just white underneath?

Thanks~~
