the best neon nail polish

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Greece? Greek salad, maybe ancient mythology heroes and finally or maybe Santorini? Well, allow me to alter your perception of Greece slightly. Food, culture and holidays are undeniably fantastic in Greece but it is also a nail polish paradise!

Last year I randomly (read: while hunting for souvenirs) discovered Hondos Center and more precisely, their nail polish department that almost made me faint. The ENTIRE floor was dedicated to nail polish! Over 20 recent collections of ALL European brands in every colour and finish under one roof. After that remarkable day, my baggage was significantly heavier for my fiancee to carry (oops). I didn’t buy any well known polishes, instead I purchased a variety of local brands such as Seventeen, Tommy G, Radiant, Korres and MD Professionnel.

Guys, you should see these colour ranges! Sadly I could not take any good photos & even was almost kicked out of the shop for sneaking an iPhone pic (risking everything for the love of nail polish!). I did try to explain why I wanted to take photos of their shop but the language barrier was insurmountable.

Anyway, the GT Cosmetics nail polishes (Tommy G‘s sister brand) I present to you today were obtained on that extraordinary day. And you know what? They are the best neon nail polishes I’ve tried so far and due to the nature of my job, I’ve tried a lot!

Why am I rating these polishes so highly? Read the review below!

GT cosmetics nail polish review

REVIEW:

  • Formula: Great density formula, fast drying. 3-free.
  • Application: easy to apply, just 2 layers of polish shown – no top coat, NO white base required! (most of neon nail polishes require white base to look neon)
  • Finish: Beautiful moderately glossy creme neon nail polish.
  • Brush: great, easy to use, mid thickness brush.
  • Wearability: Long lasting, the GT Cosmetics polishes can last up to 5 days chip free without top coat – here’s the evidence!
  • Nail Art: Perfect for any kind of nail art.
  • Extra Notes: Made in Greece!

GT Cosmetics Polish Overall Impression: Stunning pastel neon nail polishes with a great formula and density that does not require a white base to produce a great neon effect. Easy to apply, easy to remove & 3-free. Pretty much the ideal nail polish. Personally, I could not find any fault with this brand. So if you’re in Greece anytime soon, give GT Cosmetics (also known as Tommy G) a try.

Nail Polish available: not available online, retails in Hondos Center (Greece) – 6EURO.

So, what do you think about these neon beauties? Have you tried Tommy G or GT Cosmetics nail polishes before?

      I guess you’ll have to go to Greece or make friends with Greek nail polish enthusiasts… Tommy G isn’t available online yet, unfortunately.

    I am Greek and I have always passed by the GT polishes but never tried them (shame on me!). Now I have to try at least the green one.
    Next chance you have, I suggest you try out the Seventeen line (older sister to Radiant). Unless they changed their formula in the last 3-4 years that I haven’t bought from them, their nail polishes have great quality, very extensive range of colours and finishes and they’ve been around for decades.
    Hondos Center really is a nail polish lover’s paradise :)
