This polish is definitely my last-ditch attempt at hanging on to summer! I mean, this week I have worn *gasp* tights [pantyhose to my US friends] three times this week! Now I’m an English girl, I don’t feel cold too easily, so that’s a big sign that the autumn is coming.
Anyhow, less about the weather and more about nails !
Charisma is a delicious bright Barbie pink. It applies as a true neon, it’s a bit of a pain to be honest, but it’s well worth the effort. It naturally dries nice and matte :
It does drag a little, but still self-levels very nicely, and dries very fast!
I usually really love a matte finish, and this one is lovely and silky, but I couldn’t help adding a lick of top coat to see what happens, and boom !
Most neons need a white base coat to really bring them out, but I don’t think that Charisma needs that at all. Plus, I actually think that this neon looks better with a top coat, what do you think?
Also, did everyone see the 31 Day Challenge that Chalkboard Nails is sparking off for September? Who’s going to take part?
