Revlon Neon Nail Art Review – #130 Laser Beam Blue

Revlon Neon Nail Art ReviewRevlon Neon Nail Art 130 Laser Beam

I bought this Neon Revlon Nail Art polish a while ago but hadn’t tried it until today. I must say I was really unimpressed with it. Looking online now so many people seem to not rate it either so it isn’t just me.

  1. Starting off with swatch 1 – I didn’t read the instructions so just painted my swatch straight with the blue. The polish was thin and see-through but blobby and didn’t spread easily or evenly. It didn’t dry glossy either and took 4 coats to end up looking even, smooth, glossy, but isn’t what I’d call a glossy shade.
  2. Swatch 2 – Realising I should read the instructions I did as required, 2 coats of the white polish topped with 2 coats of the blue. The white polish is meant to build up a background to make the neon colour really pop and stand out. The white polish was a different consistency and as a polish on its own is very good, after 2 coats it gave a good block, even colour. Applying the blue over the top looked so dark with 2 layers of polish and seemed to look so close to my 1st swatch but took double the time.
  3. Swatch 3 – I strayed away from the instructions applying 1 coat of the white polish and then one of the blue. As you can see it gives a far better neon colour but is so streaky, even though I tried my best to get it even. It’s a weak colour and very inconsistent on the swatch but the closest to the neon shade.

Overall I like the white polish on its own but this isn’t a neon blue and applying 4 layers of polish to achieve this effect really isn’t worth the time. I also am really not keen on the packaging, I can’t store my tube of polish easily like my other nail polish bottles.

Have you had any good results with Revlon Neon Nail Art?

Any recommendations for alternative Neon Nail Polish?

  • I usually go for darker shades of blue, and I don’t do nail art. The colours are beautiful though.

  • How frustrating! If you’re looking for a neon blue, one of my favourite bright bright blues is Nails Inc Baker Street. It’s not 100% neon, but as close as you can get, and it’s even and opaque.

  • I have not tried any of the Revlon Neon Nail Art. I am not much into nail polish, probably because I am a lousy nail painter…..LOL!

  • Ah what a shame, looks so nice in the bottle as well D: I’ve tried a fair few neon polishes and honestly never really found one that I 100% loved, I guess it’s a difficult effect to get right really.

    Wow, its quite stunning in the bottle. That’s too bad. I would definitely recommend “Illamasqua Noble” if you’re looking for a striking, bright neon blue, its £14.50 per bottle. Here’s the link: http://www.illamasqua.com/shop/products/nails/nail-varnish-noble. It’s actually a little darker than on the site. Let me know how it works out! :)

    They have tons of these on all shades in the pound shop. Obviously they didnt sell very well, the £ shop bought them in bulk.
