I, for one, am so glad this is the last day of the work week!
Ok so today I have some Kleancolor lacquers to show you. These are the new neon colors for summer and they are all (almost) pretty fabulous.
I swatched some Kleancolor’s before here and here and I wasn’t all that impressed. I remember quite a few of them were really sheer. These however are almost all super opaque in two coats. A few don’t really live up to the “neon” name, but that’s ok, I forgive them.
Check them out below!
Neon Yellow is a sunny color that leans towards the warm side of yellow. But luckily for me not TOO warm, so I can still wear it. Surprisingly, there wasn’t that much of a problem with streaking on this. After two coats it settled down nicely, and was very opaque. I do classify this as neon because it’s really bright, but it’s not like those day-glo yellows you see frequently in summer collections.
None Green is a BRIGHT lime green. I couldn’t capture this right on my camera, it spazzed out. It’s not quite as light as this picture shows in real life. But it’s definitely neon. This was three coats.
Neon Pink is a bright blue-based light pink. Yep it’s uber bright folks, no joke. I happen to love this color on my skin tone. This was two coats.
Neon Aqua is a light swimming pool blue that definitely isn’t neon, and actually was quite sheer. This is my nemesis of the collection. It was WAY sheer and the sun happened to disappear for 30 minutes while I was trying to get a good pic. So I couldn’t get a good pic. Then it smudged. I digress. Anyway, it’s really not very bright and this was three coats. It probably needed like 5 coats to be opaque. A big fat fail for me on this one!
Neon Orange is a warm toned orange. This is another classic neon. I liked it but have so many of these, and I never really wear them for some reason. This was three coats.
Neon Fuschia is a bright poppy pink (doesn’t look “fuchsia” to me). I don’t think this is neon at all, but it’s cheerful and bright. This was two coats.
Neon Purple is a royal purple with SHIMMER! Yes shimmer in a neon creme collection! I was surprised by this when I opened the bottle. Pleasantly surprised. This, ironically, wound up being my fav even though it’s not neon. The shimmer is pink/green/silver and it’s SO opaque and buttery. This was two coats.
Neon Sapphire is a deep yet bright blue. I don’t really consider this neon either and it wasn’t my fav. I think I have a lot of colors like this already. This was a little more sheer than most of the others so this was three coats.
Overall I was way more impressed with these than past Kleancolor’s I reviewed. It seems their formula has improved somewhat, and that makes me very likely to buy more of their colors in the future.
You can find Kleancolor Nail Lacquer on their website here, and they are around $3.50. I have to say the last ones I bought were only $1.50, so these went WAY up, although they are still relatively inexpensive.
How do you guys feel about this neon collection?
