Let me get this straight: I'm not a girly girl (seriously? Pink? Fluffy dresses? Enough makeup to look like a clown? Gag.) I love color. Especially bright, in-your-face obnoxious colors.
When I saw the large bin of neon nail polishes for only $1.99 a pop, both the penny pincher and color lover in me came to an immediate agreement: Must.have. (and that is not often).
But not really.
I got two other colors, neon orange and dirt brown (want to see? Let me know), and while I have not tried the latter yet, I love both the neon colors.
If you've tried it before, you know how hard it is to to capture neon's true color. The left photo is an accurate representation of the color of my hand. The right is pretty much the actual color of the polish - depending on its mood. Sometimes it decides to turn into strange hues in different lighting. I swear it was plotting against me.
This color is streaky, it took me two coats on top of a white base coat to get the right shade. And side note: the white base coat on neons do make a difference. It brightens and brings out the color without you having to layer on enough polish to paint a small house.
The drying time was fast, probably around 1 minute. It also chipped fast, but that's normal for me since I work with my hands a lot. For the average wearer, I'd say this would last a good 2+ days before chipping.
What's your favorite nail polish color?
