Hey There Polished People!
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of neons. I’m always looking for the better, brighter retina-searing shade, and pink is one color that I haven’t quite been able to find yet. I have Essie Lights, which is definitely “hot” but not quite “neon.” I also have an Elf neon pink that is just so thin and sheer that I tried it once and literally threw it away. The closest to a true neon pink that I have is ChG Flip Flop Fantasy, which I absolutely LOVE but it’s more of a coral-pink shade, and I’m looking for regular, pure PINK! I recently was in Sally’s to buy some ChG Strong Adhesion base coat for my mom when I just so happened to spot Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink. Ready to see how I liked it?
Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink
Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink is super bright neon pink!! You’ll see that I had to take these pictures in the shade, and you can still see how bright this color is. When I photographed it in the sun, it absolutely freaked my camera out and looked almost orange so I didn’t even use those. This is a true neon polish. I layered it over my favorite white (NUP French White, which just may be the best white ever) because it was a little sheer on its own, but as you can see, over white it looks perfect.
Like I mentioned above, as with many neons, this color is going to look best layered over white. I can not recommend Nina Ultra Pro French White enough. The white is super opaque, even in one coat, the brush is wide and works PERFECTLY and I just love it. I’ll never go back to any other white. Anyway, the formula for Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink is a little sheer, but I find that to be typical of neons. In a couple/few coats the pink is opaque, and the polish glides on smooth, and I didn’t have any dragging or anything else annoying to contend with.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, Please! I can see myself wearing Punki Pink a lot this summer, I really loved the bright pink, the formula was good and I loved how it nearly glowed in lower light. 🙂 There was also a really interesting green neon polish with what looked like pearly or possibly holographic glitter in it next to this polish on the stand at Sally’s and I’m thinking I should get that next time I’m out that direction.
Have you found the perfect neon pink? Have you tried this brand of polish before? I haven’t tried one that I didn’t really like yet, so let me know if you’ve had the same experience. As always, thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
