Hi everyone! So, how’s your summer been going so far? I love summer. Classes are out, pools are open, and all the summer colors come out, particularly neons.
I have to confess something, I have a love hate relationship with neons. I love the bright colors, but often the formula’s are less than perfect. But I have found two that I love! Not only are they bright and pretty, they’re shimmers! That’s right, neon shimmers!
Behold the glory of these two Funky Fingers polishes.
All The Rave is a neon pink with orange shimmer. It dries to a matte finish, as you can see in the photos. Shown is two flawless coats. It was super easy to apply. I think it’s one of the best formulas out of any polish I own. It is that amazing.
Glowstick is All The Rave’s yellow sister. It definitely lives up to its name. It’s an almost highlighter bright neon yellow with yellow shimmer. LOVE. This color is gorgeous and so bright! The formula wasn't quite as good as All The Rave, but still nice, especially for a neon yellow, which are known to often have formula issues. To get a completely smooth finish you need to do a few things. The first is to watch the brush, I found that I sometimes had to dip the brush into the bottle more than once to make sure I got enough to make a complete coat, if you don't do this it might go on patchy. Secondly make sure to let each coat dry before adding another. Thick coats have a tendency to bubble. Follow those instructions and it looks great! It can be opaque in three coats but I had to use four for a few nails. Note: In the shade picture it looks brighter than it is. It doesn't glow in the dark (unfortunately).
So, in conclusion, these are absolute must haves for anyone who loves bright colors. Also, good news for those who don’t have access to a Five Below store, these are available on ebay! Go here and here to buy them! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
So, what are your favorite summer colors?
