This week’s GOT Polish challenge theme is neon. I thought I would love this theme, but then as I was going through my nail polish I realized I don’t really have that many true neons in my collection. The first one I chose only looked neon in the bottle, not on the nail, so I had to find time to do another mani, and this one hasn’t worked out too well, either. 😥
I used Neener Neener Nails Shades Needed! for this theme, since it is a very bright yellow jelly base with various sizes of iridescent glitter in it. I used this once before when I first got it a little over a year ago, and at the time I couldn’t decide if I hated it or if I really hated it. 😀 But I decided to keep it and give it another try, and I’m definitely convinced now that it is not for me. The jelly base of this one has a tendency to be very gloopy, and the glitter just adds to the mess factor of the look. I used three coats because the base is so sheer, but there is definitely still a VNL. I don’t want to be overly critical, so I’ll suffice it to say that this one is just not my cup of tea. And I mean it this time. 😛
So…what do you think? I do love bright colors, but the texture of this one is just not for me. Into the “give it away” pile it goes!
I purchased Shades Needed! from the Neener Neener Nails Etsy shop for $5.50. I can’t tell if this brand is still around, honestly. The Etsy shop doesn’t seem to exist anymore, at least.
