This post is even later than I intended, and I’m sorry for that. I didn’t get much time off from work in the past two weeks, so even though I was able to find time to do the hot pink challenge, I wasn’t able to find time to post it. Until now! Better late than never.
Last week’s Golden Oldie Thursday Challenge theme was hot pink! I love pink and I love neons, so this was a fun one for me. I decided to use a bright pink polish that I hadn’t used in a couple of years, Absolute! Neon Nail Color in Fuschia.
Fuschia is not exactly an accurate description of the color of this polish. In the bottle it looks more like a bright, cool-toned pink color. On the nail, however, it actually takes on a much warmer hue, and it really takes on the look of an orange-leaning pink neon. In the photos you can see that the color in the bottle looks different from the color on the nail. Some of the photos do make the color on the nail look redder than it does in real life; it really does look orangey-pink IRL. It really is a bright and fantastic color, and I received lots of compliments on it while I wore it. Because the color is so bright, I did a half-moon mani when I wore it so it wouldn’t look too garish. The photos show two coats of Fuschia with my usual base and top coats.
(Please forgive the odd shape of my index finger nail. I break my nails all the time at work, and rather than cut them down to the tiniest nubs, I’ve been trying to just file down the break in order to hang on to a little more length. That does result in some odd nails shapes sometimes. :-/)
What do you think of this mani? I love the way it turned out, and it was nice to wear bright, fun nails for a few days.
I purchased this polish 3 years ago from the Nicka K online shop for around $1.50 during a sale. It is still available for purchase there.
