Think Pink... An Adventure in Neon!

Good morning lovelies!  I apologize for my posts being up a little later than usual.  I always try to have them up by 8:30, but the long weekend threw off my sleep schedule.  And if I don't sleep I am a bear to deal with lol.  Anywhosie, let's get started!

Yesterday I posted my haul from the last 2 weeks and in it I showed a neon pink by China Glaze called Pool Party.  Well, today I've decided to be bold...

Colors Used: China Glaze - Pool Party, Ulta - Pinata-Yada-Yada

I applied 3 coats of Pool Party, brushed the Pinata on the tips and then topped it off with Out The Door.  Very simple but fun :)  A couple of things tho... Neons are usually thicker and more challenging to work with, but this applied like a dream. I applied 3 coats to ensure that it was completely covered.  

The only thing that bugged me was how it dried.  I mentioned in a previous swatching post that I've noticed that neons dry darker than they look in the bottle.  This polish is no exception and it's kind of turning me off to neons :(  The above picture is one of the better shots I got.  None of the photos have flash.  In the following pics, the polish looks orangey...

*sigh* It is what it is!  One last pic, I think it's the closest representation of the color...

Well, there you have it!  What are your feelings on neons?  Have you had a similar experience with them?  I hope you all have a lovely day :) 

Until next time!
