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!! 😀
Yes!!! Very awesome neon! 😀 I think Funky Limelight is my fav so far. Waiting for some awesome NEONs to come along… 😀
Me too! This type of brightness is just what I’m linking for in my neons. 🙂
Whoops! *looking for 🙂
love this color!
It’s super bright! Just how I like em! 🙂
DANG! That is bright, love it! Can’t wait to put this baby on my toes this week :).
That will be cute!! I like having a super bright color on my toes. 🙂
I like neons but not this neon. I guess I should say that I wouldn’t like it on me. It would look horrid on me. I liked it in the picture where it looks like a creamy yellow…that I could wear. I do think it looks good on you.
Whoa…I just noticed something. Did you cut your nails? Tell me that you did not cut your nails.
I just don’t care if it looks good on me or not.. I think that’s my secret! haha. Thanks though 🙂 And NOOOOO I didn’t cut my nails yet but I like REALLY want to! I’m telling you they just have reached the length where I’m like REALLY aware of how long they are… but they’re not getting much longer it doesn’t seem. I can feel the corners starting to be kinda soft tho… so I think the end is near!! You are “thisclose” to victory 🙂
LMAO. Well, I noticed that one of my nails has a tiny little split like right where it joins my nail bed so I think all it will take is one careless bump to make it break. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I’m actually getting used to them being longer but I hate the noise they make when I scratch myself. This girl I used to work with would always like scratch at her jeans and her nails made this funky noise and I wanted to puke every time I would hear it.
Ew! I know what you’re talking about… that scritchity scratch scratch sound is awful!!! And I hate having a hard time getting lipgloss, cuticle cream, etc out of pots! It’s always under my nails. I end up using the top of my nail to scoop it out and then wipe it onto my lips, etc before I smooth it around. The end is near…. maybe. I do like having the extra space for polish and art 🙂
Awesome color, you are not making it easy for my no-buy!
This one should be there at the end of the month. 🙂 Good luck!! 😉
Looks like a dupe for China Glaze’s Celtic Sun!
I think you’re probably right because it has that same slight green hue to it in the right light. I haven’t tried Celtic Sun and actually wasn’t sure if it was a true neon. Thanks for the info! 🙂
I did not think to put white underneath. I just did 3 coats and it was still a bit thin. Good suggestion!
Thanks! Yeah w neons especially it’d always good to wear your polish panties (white or another light color underneath) so you don’t end up w a super gloopy result from trying to build it up to opacity. Plus- it helps the neon stay nice and light and bright. 🙂 I’m glad you found this helpful. Thanks for reading! 😀
Love neon. Such happy colors.just got Orly color blast in true neon pink at Kmart. So pretty!
I love neons too. I can hardly wait to wear them all the time. 🙂
Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much about this, such as you wrote the e-book
in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with
a few percent to force the message house a bit,
however instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
On the one hand, you don’t have to worry about tons of different combinations but on the other if
you are trying to do a particular move you can end up doing
several other ones you didn’t want to. EFT and Kuji Kiri both tap into DNA ability to be programmed as it relates to the flow of Chi (life force).
