Summer Neon...

When I first set out to purchase the twelve piece China Glaze Summer Neon collection I knew the collection would be popular but I didn't think my order would be canceled...twice!! I supposed the third time was a charm because it was on the third try that I finally got the entire collection! 

Click "Read More" for swatches and review...

Neon's are notorious for having difficult formulas but that is not the case with this collection!!  Application for this collection is amazing and you won't need to layer these shades over white.  Everything is smooth and opaque in two coats, with the exception of Ride the Waves with three coatsTen of these shades are shimmers and two are jellies.  All photos are without top coat.

  1. I love it! I'm wearing Beach cruise-r right now.

  2. I love this collection, but I have so far restricted myself to just "Flirty Tankini". I know I'm going to get more, but there are some really great colour in this collection so it's hard to decide!

  3. I looove the finish of these - so unusual and yummy. The royal blue is my favourite! I have an Illamasqua neon yellow which is okay, but I think I will be trying these lovelies out soon.

    1. I have a couple other neon yellows and China Glaze Sun-kissed is hands down the best out of them :)

  4. I love the Under the Boardwalk shade! It is what I have been searching for! I loved this post because I do like China Glaze, but sometimes find that their shades are streaky. These shades look great! I have a new post if you have time to visit me! Have a great day! xx Pip

  5. All these colors are gorgeous! I think my favorite will have to be I'm With The Lifeguard because it is so ridiculously bright lol! Lovely swatches, as usual! :-)

  6. SUCH pretty colors. I love all the pinks, and the peach! SO pretty!

  7. Love the pink yellow and coral!!! too much!!
    idk why green always seems like the worst colour for nails... at least for me.

    1. Green is hard to pull off as a full mani. I like to use it for accenting.

  8. I love all these summer warm colours and the pictures as well.


  9. Love the pink and green neon :)

  10. I'm not really a neon lover but I do like beach cruise r & under the boardwalk x :-)

  11. I will NEVER be tired of neon!!! These colors are all gorgeous...I especially want to try "Beach Cruise-r"! I LOVE the magenta shade.
