China Glaze Celtic Sun (Neon)

didn't feel well at all this morning, so my mom had to go to the big move seminar by herself... and it turned out that the receptionist had given us the wrong seminar day! how lame is that?! since she gave the wrong date to multiple (!!) people, the advisor went ahead and gave the correct info packets and stuff to everyone.

today's polish is China Glaze Celtic Sun (Neon)... yep, (Neon) is on the label! and it certainly is neon highlighter colored... which is super fun on the nails. the camera did it's best but it absolutely could not capture how bright this color actually is! in some lights the color looks exactly like the photos... but in others it is a blinding neon! the formula was a complete nightmare. i used one thin coat followed by three thick coats, but still some fingers looked a little streaky. not noticeable to the average bear, but it bothers me. it dried very matte, i have photos of both the matte finish and a topcoat finish. if you are like me and have fairly oily skin, it is not going to stay matte for long... any time you touch your nail it becomes more and more shiny.

four coats. (matte)

four coats plus one coat Seche Vite.

i do love the color of this polish (even more so with topcoat) and will be definitely be rocking it again... but the formula is enough of a deterrent that i will not wear it very often. in the next week i will be swatching more neons from China Glaze... but i have the feeling all the polishes are going to be streaky and hard to work with. tomorrow's Friday!
