Summer isn’t over yet…. there are actually 5 weeks left of Summer so still plenty of time to rock those neons. I actually love neons, they are one of my fave type of polish. They give me an instant tan and I could wear them year-round, but that’s probably because I live in Miami!
These pretty much all have the same formula except for the highlighter yellow neon. All were 3 coats to reach full opacity. The highlighter yellow was a 4-5 coater, but if you add a white base coat it’s opaque (and brighter) in 2 coats. Also, please note these ARE NOT gel polishes. They are GEL-LIKE which just means they have a shiny finish, but they are regular normal nail polish. Let’s take a look at each one.
This is a bubblegum pink neon. OH one important thing I didn’t mention earlier with these…. the brush! The brush isn’t the best. It’s not thin, but it’s flat edged making it difficult to do a clean swatch on the nail since our nail beds are round. My fave type of brushes are those that are rounded at the edges. Formula is patchy and streaky as I mentioned before it takes 3 coats to be fully opaque. But it’s oh so gorgeous!
This is a more coral bright neon. For this one I needed 3.5 coats. I have an instant tan though. Delicious!
This is a super bright orange neon. Super super super bright. This one was a 3-4 coater depending on your application.
The highlighter yellow neon of the bunch. This one was wow! Okay so it’s 4 coats on it’s own to reach opacity (to my liking) and if you do a white undies base, you only need 1 or 2 coats over that to make it look amazing. It don’t think it’s a whole big of a difference with undies vs. without but what do you guys think? This is without undies, 4 coats on it’s own:
And this is with a white undies base coat.
I think I like it better with the white base just because it pops more and looks amazing.
This is a yummy neon green! I don’t have any polish this color. It’s so bright and amazing!!!
This is an aqua neon. So stunning and the color is just Summer in a bottle.
This is a powder blue, not quite neon, but super bright and powdery. I liked the pigmentation on this one.
This is a lilac/periwinkle bright beauty. It almost has a hint of dustiness to it. LOVE!
