They say what goes around comes around, and nail trends are no exception! Unless you've been living under a rock with no wifi you've noticed that neon is very much a thing again. Big-name nail artists including Tom Bachik and Mei Kawajiri have been painting neon on some of the top trendsetting celebs. From Rihanna to Cardi B, and of course a Kardashian or two, literally everyone is rocking fluorescent fingers ATM.

Let these celebs inspire you to get on board with the neon nail trend!

The Fenty Beauty founder herself is certainly not afraid to set new trends. Rihanna's red hair recently made a comeback and fans were stoked. Many have even suspected that this could be a sign of new music dropping soon. *fingers crossed* Much like her main, Rihanna's nails always get people talking. Recently, Queen RiRi rocked the neon trend with these glowing claws. Nearly radioactive, her long neon green nails are not for the faint of heart but absolutely for fans of this fun spring/summer trend.

At this year's Met Gala, Elle Fanning rocked the rose carpet with a bold neon manicure that would make any pink-lover proud. Not only were here long almond-shaped nails dressed in neon, but they were also adorned with adorable charms, perfectly suited for the evening's "Camp" theme.

When it comes to beauty trends, some celebs prefer to dip a toe in. That's not the case for the ever bold Cardi B! Known for her constantly evolving hair colour and head-turning outfits, this fearless femme never shies away from taking on a daring look. To trial the neon trend, Cardi went far from mellow: dressed head to toe in fluorescent yellow.

Peach with a nod to neon! We love this look by OPI global ambassador Tom Bachik. The celebrity "man-icurist" painted this bold orange on his longtime nail muse Selena Gomez. Combined with Selena's warm tanned skin, this neon orange is noticeable yet not overpowering.  Not only are we obsessed with this colour, we also love the rounded ends of her long nails, giving this look a unique and memorable shape!

Just about the nicest vacay nails we've ever seen, Kylie Jenner rocked a dip-dyed neon nail look alongside her bestie Anastasia Karanikolaou. The duo sipped on coconuts while sun-bathing in the tropical Turks and Caicos. Kylie's nail look switches up the neon trend with a nude nail base dipped into her favourite neon hue.
