It’s somewhat weird for me that my favourite from the China Glaze Neons turned out to be a neon pink… and my second favourite is a pink as well!
Flirty Tankini is what I’ve heard described as a coral (and I guess it photographs a bit like that) but for me it’s a super vivid salmon pink shimmer. It’s borderline between true neon and just über-bright.
Like in the picture it’s also darker and brighter on the nails than in the bottle in real life.
Getting back to the neons now… I felt like wearing something less typical than pink and went with the neon green of China Glaze’s summer collection.
This is two coats of I’m With the Lifeguard. And just like my previous encounter with this collection, the formula was superb for a neon. 🙂
Unfortunately, this beautiful polish looks better in the bottle and on other people than it does on me. It’s a sad case of lobster hands. 😦
I can never figure out which greens do this to me so I could avoid them. I mean, sometimes it’s yellow-based, sometimes blue-based, sometimes light, sometimes not… All I can say is that with green, it’s a fifty-fifty thing if the colour’s gonna work for me. Still love my greens though! 🙂
Ok, so when I don’t like pink and red all that much for the most prosaic of reasons — nobody will grab your hand to say see what an interesting colour you’re wearing — there’s just something so happy-makingabout neons!
So, I did pick up three of the more traditional neons of China Glaze’s summer collection and the first I tried out was Love’s a Beach.
I mean, what’s not to love about about a two-coat neon? Love’s a Beach is a beautiful hot pink with vivid shimmer that just freaks out my camera.
Added bonus — this makes even me look tan. 😉 So, even despite neon pink being a pretty common summer colour… I’m really happy wearing this and can’t stop staring at my nails. 🙂
