Asgid graciously consented to demonstrate why high school senior girls shouldn't wear neon fingernail polish for their senior pictures. To get the full effect, make sure you click on the image so you can see it larger.

Take a look at these examples, the same senior picture pose with and without neon fingernail polish. Do you see how the bright nail polish draws your eye to Asgid's fingernails instead of her face? The neon color is jarring in this otherwise beautifully neutral portrait.

In this case, the neon polish doesn't clash with her outfit, but that can also happen when seniors change clothing during their senior portrait session. Imagine this neon green nail polish with a red dress.......... not a pretty thought, huh?

It's best to avoid neon polishes for your senior pictures. Black or blue nail polish is also a questionable look as they are trendy, and will also look extra odd in a black and white image. Strive for colors that are less trendy. Classic styles are most always the best choice for your senior portraits.
