Happy Monday !
I hope everyone’s got a nice week ahead of them. Where I work, things are really amping up; but I’m also working on a couple of side projects that you’ll hear about very soon on this blog 🙂
I saw these beautiful polishes at the supermarket local to work and could not resist! Beautiful, bright neon cremes.
First up, Bottle Service. A hot pink. Of course, being a neon, it’s translucent. This is how it looks with no undies (wooo!) :
I love the semi-matte finish of these neons 🙂
The formula for Bottle Service is very very thin ! I actually prefer thin, personally. But to see so little coverage at 3 coats was still a bit of a bummer. Still, it dries very quickly and doesn’t streak.
DJ Play that Song is the one lending its name to the collection. I found the formula a little easier to work with than Bottle Service, and the colour is just stunning!
Again, without undies, it’s a little transparent, but I do think it looks more jelly than messy – and it’s super-pigmented!
It’s a very flattering colour, no?
And, because it’s my favourite, you get a nail macro, that semi-matte finish is so tasty 🙂
Bouncer, It’s Me was my least favourite, however. The formula isn’t just thin, it’s watery. Yep, it dries fast like the others, but without undies like this, it looks dirty – and this is after clean up, ladies ! I’m usually a big fan of the Essie brushes, but this still felt a little streaky.
At least there’s some good pay-off for your trouble, the finish is quite stunning. And yep, I hadn’t noticed that bit of splodge on this photo… ooops!
As we all know, neons look best with white undies !
This is how it came out for me, two coats of each. Please bear in mind that the white I have is awful. I think the only one that didn’t level out is Bouncer, It’s me – it probably could have done with a 3rd coat. No top coat for this first one, did I say how I love the semi-matte finish already??
Well, I did hope that a shiny top coat would have an evening effect on this polish. Unfortunately, it looks more patchy ! Strangely, it’s the pink that comes out nicest with a top coat. I would therefore definitely recommend a third coat of these if you want to topcoat them afterwards!
