Hello Again Everyone!!
Now I have some nails to share with you. Before I show you my neon green nails though I just have to tell you that I can’t stop thinking about Adam Lambert’s neon yellow nails, shirt and earrings on American Idol the week before last.
You’re going to have to click on that picture to enlarge it to get the full effect of his nails. They’re hard to see when they’re wrapped around the mic, but you can see that they match his shirt and earrings perfectly if you blow it up. Anyway, I just loved his nails and outfit!! I have seen plenty of men wearing nail polish, but I have never seen any man fully integrate them into their outfit quite as well as Adam Lambert. I love this guy. To me, he’s like my generation’s Freddie Mercury. A crazily talented and flamboyant musician who is equal parts TRUE, genius and ballsy. His music, just like Queen, is one of my (only slightly-) guilty pleasure listens.
Now let’s quickly look at my neon nails.
China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada:
Kiwi Cool-Ada is a nice, super-bright neon green. It doesn’t quite glow in the dark, but it’s very bright and I love the color. The above pictures are right on with the color. This neon actually behaved when I took its picture, unlike most neons! 🙂
I applied 3 coats over ChG White on White for the above pictures and you can see a little streakiness in the last picture. I don’t know if another coat, or perhaps some nail polish thinner would have helped with that, but I found the streakiness to bevery frustrating!! Other people have not had this problem with this polish though, so I’m hoping it’s just a flukey thing. I’m going to try the thinner next time I use this polish.
Yes, Please or No, Thank You:
Given the streakiness, as of right now I’m saying this is a “No, Thank You… sorry, I wanted to love you and I really tried but you just made it too difficult for my perfectionist nails.” If I thin it and it behaves itself I’ll update this, but as of right now I just don’t think neon green is THAT unique that you need to put up with an ornery streaky polish. Kiwi Cool-Ada– I love you, I’m just not in love with you. Sorry bout your luck.
What do you think of Adam Lambert and/or Queen. PLEASE tell me you at least appreciate Queen! They’re classic! If you can keep from at least doing a little light head-banging at the break-out part of Bohemian Rhapsody you are stronger than me… or you have no soul. I’m going with the latter. Also- do you have a perfect neon green I should try? As always, thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!! I hope you all have a nice long weekend (in the US at least)!
