Essie's Summer Neons

I know I promised a different polish color every day in May, but I ran out of non-discontinued colors of polish that had been swatched, I had a week or so of cloudy weather that was not conducive to more swatch picture taking, yada yada yada.

Well, to make up for it I have swatches of four super bright polishes today and I have quite a few more OPIs sitting on my desk right now that I'll feature randomly throughout June.

This summer Essie released a limited edition set of four different neons! The colors are definitely bright, perfect for summer. The colors are a bit sheer (each swatch is 3 layers) and I have to warn you that the yellow is a bit finicky and difficult to apply for some reason. As well, due to the nature of the pigments used in neon polishes they will dry matte, so be sure to use a very shiny top coat.




While the "actual" release date of this collection is June 1st, I bought these polishes at my nail supply store about a week ago. I've heard rumors of them popping up early in ULTAs and similar stores as well. So, happy hunting!

From the looks of it, I doubt it's your mirror site.

Sesame-Thanks for the heads up, you're a doll!

Everyone else- I love all of these colors, minus the yellow. I'm not a yellow polish person I think. There's something about my super pale skin that makes those colors just pop!

Bermuda Shorts for my toes, for sure! Great pictures, Christine.

I picked up Bermuda shorts last week and the color cam out just a little darker and more vibrant than the pic, it is AMAZINGLY RICH and PRETTY, a real feel good color...not to mention the loads of compliment, including from a very conservative mom. :-)
