Just because summer's (almost) over doesn't mean we have to put away our bright and downright neon polishes, does it? Welp, not for me. I've been wanting neon nail polishes for the longest time and not just neon but down right highlighter color neons. Were you ever that kid in class who got so bored they started marking their fingernails with a highlighter? I totally was, and that's the sort of thing I wanted in a nail polish; bright and fluorescent, so much so that your eyes kind of hurt to look at it, aha! Well, I found those qualities in these two gorgeousnesses (I dare you to not skip over that word and actually read it, haha) by China Glaze. I'm not sure which one to start with as they both make me incredibly excited, but I guess I'll start with the one first in the picture. Pool Party is a vibrant and hot coral. In the bottle it looks pinky-coral, but on the nails it takes on a more orange-y coral. Celtic Sun is just straight up highlighter juice. It's as of you took apart you highlighter pen, removed the ink well bit and just melted it, haha. It's a flourscent and in your face yellow with little tints of lime green. These colors are quite bright on their own, but imagine how they'd look with a white polish as base? Although these colors are absolutely fun they can be a bit tricky to paint on. The China Glaze brush isn't the best around and it's a bit longer than most so it can go a bit flimsy. It's also on the thinner side which can make it difficult to get an even coat on the whole nail without it looking streaky. These polished dry a bit matte, so this would be one of those polishes you don't skip top coat with. Without a good base and top coat, these bright China Glaze polishes just won't look their best - and that's not to say you even need a white base underneath, just some solid base and top coats. Overall, I'm in love with these polishes. I got them for $4 at a Sally's Beauty Supply in Canada but I'm sure wherever you can get China Glaze polishes you can find these two beauts shining like the sun on the display! Summer may be coming to a close, but it's not over yet, so I'm taking advantage of the time I have left to wear these!
