Happy Humpday! Today I have swatches of China Glaze's Summer Neons 2012. I know there are swatches that have been out for awhile already, but the nail store I go to got them kinda late and I wanted to play with them before my summer vacation ends so here they are! There are 10 neons with shimmer and 2 vibrant jellies. All are shown with topcoat.
Feel free to click on the photos to enlarge them. You'll be able to see all of the fine shimmer in them that makes them unlike any other polishes I own. I have not been too fond of neons in the past because they can be tricky to apply and usually chip quicker than other polishes, but not with these. I'm not sure if it's the shimmer in them that makes it different, but these are much easier to apply and last as long as other non-neon polishes I own. My only complaint is that they take quite awhile to dry. At first I was doing 2 coats of each, but then started doing 3 thinner coats to allow them to dry better. I'm kind of sad summer is coming to an end, but that will not stop me from wearing these!
|Ride the Waves. As you can see, it's a jelly and I still have some VNL after 3 coats so I probably won't be wearing it alone.|
|Under the Boardwalk. This jelly was perfect in 2 coats.|
