Good Morning Polished People!!!
Yesterday I shared with you a disappointing “neon” but today I’m making up for that with a good, retina-searing neon yellow/green. It’s called Glowstick and I found it in Orly’s new Feel The Vibe display at Sally’s. 🙂 I don’t own very many Orly polishes but I’ve never had a problem with the handful that I do own and this one was no different. Let’s have a peek, shall we?
Glowstick is a mysterious color that hovers somewhere between radioactive-urine yellow and the lightest lime green you could ever imagine. The top picture is the best representation of how it looks in everyday life. Glowstick is a perfect name for it because that’s exactly what it looks like. It’s thisclose to glowing in the dark, and I love it! THIS, my friends, is a NEON! 😀
Being a neon, you’re gonna need some polish panties. For the above pictures I used white underneath but you could also use silver which is what I use sometimes. Als0, it dried satiny so you’ll want a good topcoat. The current topcoats I’m recommending are Seche Vite (my go-to HG of topcoat), SH Insta-Dri Clearly Quick and my new recommendation NYC Grand Central Station. I heard about the NYC topcoat because Sammy from The Nailasaurus is always raving about it and so far I think she’s right!! 🙂 It doesn’t dry quite as quick as Seche when applied over wet polish, but it does dry quick and doesn’t smell bad like Seche at all!! For that reason a lot of you may love it. The smell/fumes don’t bother me very much so I’ll continue to use Seche for the most part, but I know they bother a lot of people. Anyway, you’ll need a topcoat with this polish as with all neons. 🙂 Everything else about this polish was perfect.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
YES, PLEASE!! I’m so happy with this polish! I love it. I love the brightness and that’s allll I need 🙂 I saw a color just like this, Essie Funky Limelight on Traci’s blog, Drinkcitra, and once I saw it I knew I had to have one similar. I was so happy when I found this at Sally’s and it was just as awesome as I’d hoped. Now I just need a good neon blue and pink. I have received a few good suggestions from you guys though so maybe my neon dreams will come true with my husband’s next paycheck 😉
Do you all like wearing neons for summertime? What is your favorite neon polish of all time? I suppose some people don’t like the brightness but pssshhhhh you KNOW I’m all Honey Badger style about having super-loud nails!! Honey Badger don’t care… and neither do I!! As always, thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!! 😀
