First check the Amp rating of the Neon.
O.K. way:
You would obtain a Switch for a little more than the Amp rating.   Wire one side of switch to 12 Volts +. The other side of switch to + of Neon. Negative side of Neon to GROUND.

Better way:
1 Switch & 1 SPDT Relay
( single Pole double Throw )
You could also use a Relay & Switch. One side of switch goes to Ground. Other side of Switch goes to PIN 86 on Relay. PIN 85 & 30 of Relay goes to 12 Volts +. PIN 87 goes to + side of Neon. Other side of Neon Goes to GROUND
