Hey my pretty chikkas. Crikey this winter is hanging on for dear life here in the UK....apparently spring has supposed to have sprung...unforchantely I must have missed that...I am longing for some sunshine and the only way I can incorporate that is to wear some on my fingertips!
I have been eagerly awaiting the neon collection by models own so when I saw it in all its glory in Boots yesterday I grabbed the whole lot...especially as it is 3 4 2 in there at the min so I got the whole lot and a cool pink nail art pen for £20...bargain!
When I saw them I was like...wow! these are true neons alright and I was super excited to try them. I have done a lazy girls answer to swatching these as I wanted to wear them all so I have shown you a finger a time lol!!
First up is Bubblegum. This is a few shades darker from your average bubblegum pink but boy it sure is pretty. I love this, it is bright, super bright in fact but very wearable....I found this to be one of the sheerest, I used 3 coats over a white base.
Toxic Apple. Love the name...love the colour...love this polish!! Again this one was quite sheer, 3 coats and I felt a fourth could have helped...again I wore this over a white base. Toxic apple is like a acid lime green. Yep this is totally a in your face colour but I LOVE it!!
Pukka Purple. This name cracks me up!! yes it is a pukka purple indeed, I love it very much BUT I don't know if it is neon enough...compared to the others this is without doubt a softer colour. Also this was the most opaque out of the collection....could be a 1 coater!
Pink Punch. Hmmmmm is it pink? is it coral? I am not sure, it falls somewhere between the two! Either way it is a superb polish. This needed 3 coats, I layered it over a white.
Luis Lemon. I don't really get the name. This is an acid yellow...madly bright but once again I really love it! 3 coats over a white and I felt it could benefit from a fourth.
Overall I was really really impressed with these polishes. I loved the vibrant colours and I loved the cool frosted glass bottles. These are supposed to be kept in the fridge to keep the fluorescent colour vibrant. I don't know if I Will be keeping these in my fridge so the jury is out to how well these last outside in normal temperature. If you love a neon then girls you must own these, they are super fun and funky and will definitely get your talons noticed!!
