“Wrap Up on Summer Nails Trend Series” Trend no. 2: Neon – Opaque Crème nail polish
In Part one I shared about Neon Jelly nail polishes. Today I am sharing the most popular nail trend this summer – Opaque Neon crème nail polishes.
Opaque Neon crème nail polishes are bright neon nail colors that give full coverage on nails with just one coat of application.
Following are some features of Opaque Neon crème nail polishes:
– Gives full coverage / opacity in just one coat.
– Neon crème nail colors look best bright when wore over white base.
– Most of neon crème nail polishes dries to matte finish.
– Most of them glow in dark under UV light.
– Most of Opaque Neon Crème nail polishes launched this year works great for Water marble nail art and stamping nail design.
This summer we saw Neon Craze not only on runways but also in all domains of fashion industry.
Hundreds of brands launched Neon Crème collections including Mainstream and Indie polish makers. Some of the popular Neon collections I can recollect now are – China Glaze Electric nights, Pipe Dream polish, Glam Glaze, Mentality nail polish, KB Shimmer, In the name of polish, Fair Maiden and many many more.
Pipe Dream Polish – A Night in Vegas collection (ANIVC) collection was launched last year. But it had became almost synonymous with Neon Crème nail polish. They kind of had monopoly in this domain. Their collection works great for water marble. Therefore, it was popular even during this summer. Their demand was more than supply and the ANVIC collection would get stock out very soon. Many can call this marketing strategy or this could be due to limited availability of supply. This situation gave opportunity to many indie polish makers to fill the gap. Pipe Dream Polish monopoly was soon over with other Indie polish makers launching Neon Crème that work great for water marble too. Of corse, people still love Pipe Dream nail polish for its own special features. But now neon Nail polish lovers had more choice for Opaque Neon Cream polishes that work great for water marble. Some of the names For Neon creme amongst Indie Polish makers are Glam Glaze, In the name of polish, fair Maiden etc. who could hit the trend successfully.
Today I am featuring one of the brands from them – Glam Glaze Graffiti Collection.
Glam Glaze Graffiti collection is Opaque Neon Crème nail polishes that was very successful this season. They have restock the collection twice or thrice already.
Glam Glaze Graffiti collection includes 6 neon crème nail polishes and one spectra flair glitter topper. Following are swatches of Graffiti collection – all one coat own its own, without white base.

Yours Love Sascha Stamping Plate- YS 03
In this nail art i did combination of Water Marble, Gradient and Stamping nail design. I loved how this turned out.
I recently shared Yours Love Sascha Stamping plates review here. I would like to add, this nail art shows an example for versatility of Plate YS 03. Both stamping designs on first and last finger are for same pattern but nail width is different. If i would want to stamp last finger with same image as first finger, it would not fit. But Yours stamping has options of same design for small and long nails on the same plate. This is one feature i loved most. The design stamped on first finger is bigger circles that could fit wide and long nails. The last finger shows an example that the same plate has options for narrow and small nails too.
Magic of Glam Glaze Graffiti Topper:
Glam Glaze graffiti topper contains micro holographic / spectra flair glitters. It also contains tons of white and black micro dots, bars and hex glitters. This is dense glitter topper so we don’t have to fish for the hexes and bars. See the magic of Glam glaze spectra flair graffiti topper.
If i was to call this Water Melon nail art, the black hexes and bars from Glam Glaze graffiti toppers gave it finishing of the missing seeds.
While i loved the Matte version of this nail art, the magic of Glam Glaze Graffiti topper made it even more beautiful.
What do you say, did you like Matter version or the Graffiti topper ones?
Even if summer is getting over, one must have this versatile Glam Glaze Graffiti collection in their stash.
