Pixi Summer Pink

even though i'm still homesick, i'm really, really loving how dog friendly Monterey is! we went to the outdoor mall here today and took the dogs with us... we had lunch at outside tables and the dogs are allowed in every store! i guess Monterey is starting to grow on me :)

today we are checking out a Pixi polish, this one is Summer Pink. it's a gorgeous BRIGHT pink... my camera absolutely could not capture how bright it is in person! the color tone isn't quite right either, this is definitely one you want to see for yourself. the best way to describe it is as super hot pink creme that is super saturated.  i used three coats for the swatchie, but only two on my other hand. it's best to do the second coat as a fairly thick coat, that should even out any streaking. as with all my manis, i added a coat of Seche Vite to make sure everything is completely even and there are no bubbles, and of course to make it super shiny!

one coat Orly Nailtrition, three coats Summer Pink, one coat Seche Vite.

i'm not sure that this is quite bright enough to be a neon, but it is super bright and noticeable! it's a fun color and perfectly named as Summer Pink... this color just screams warm weather and fun. it's also nicely pigmented, many neons suffer needed loads of coats to be fully opaque. Ria :)

Pixi polishes retail for $8 for .25 fl.oz and can bought online at and, they can also be bought in Target stores!

:: this polish was sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::
