Essie has done it again! A fabulous unexpected collection for summer, this time neon’s! These are what I would classify as mostly true neon’s, especially the yellow. The application ran from fabulous to streaky-as-hell, but I love them all anyway. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.
Funky Limelight was the streaky-as-hell one, BUT that’s to be expected because yellow’s are always a hot streaky mess for some reason. This is a true highlighter yellow color. I did my absolute best to show you the true color of this. It’s SUPER UBER NEON and really cool. However, because of the sheerness and streakiness I needed four coats and you can still see my nail tip through it. I don’t care, I really like it anyway!
Flirty Fuchsia is a neon flamingo pink and trust me, the brightness isn’t reflected in this pic, it’s much brighter in person. The application was awesome on this, thick, opaque and creamy. I used only two coats here.
Punchy Pink is the slightly darker and a tingle more coral cousin to Flirty Fuchsia. Again, much brighter in real life than reflected here. The consistency of this one was perfect and I only needed two coats.
Perky Purple was interesting. You can see it’s really dull because I don’t have a top coat on, but trust me it’s beautiful when you add the top coat. The color is very bright but I wouldn’t call it’s “neon” really. I don’t think I have ever really seen a purple neon, maybe that color can’t be “neon” for some reason? Who knows! This wasn’t quite as opaque as the pinks, so I used three coats.
If you like what you see and want to order these, you can find them here and they retail for $8.00 each. They aren’t listed on Transdesign or Head2Toe Beauty just yet, but should be soon.
