It’s spring and I feel the need to use one bright polish after another. This time I chose China Glaze Daisy Know My Name? from the Summer 2015 Electric Nights collection.
This is a very bright neon yellow with green undertones. Very highlighter yellow and in your face in sunlight. Love it! (more…)
Happy Saturday lovelies! Here’s a quick blog post before I head out to my niece’s and nephew’s birthday party.
This is Jindie Nails Higher Flower from the Recover Me collection. The description on Jindie Nails website says it all:
“The most beautiful and highly pigmented neon pink polish, loaded with micro flakes and holographic micro glitters in purple and silver. The flakie colors are bronze, silver, purple, pink and blue. The silver flakies are bits of real silver. It’s divine and opaque in 1-2 coats.”
This polish is amazing! Such a vibrant neon pink and unlike your average neon this doesn’t require multiple coats to be opaque.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a one coater on shorter nails!!
Perfect, flawless application and quick dry time. I wore this as a full manicure for three days and no chipping or issues at all. Easy enough to remove and didn’t cause any staining. For my full manicure I only applied one coat. On these swatch photos there is two coats of polish cos I wanted to see if the second coat would make the color even more vibrant. It added a little depth but I have to say this was already perfect on the first coat.
For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Fill the Gap, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! base coat, two coats of Higher Flower and HK Girl top coat.

Only one day late this time :D Hopefully I get the last ABC post up in time next week. Wow, I just can’t believe we are almost done with this challenge. I’d be super upset if we didn’t have another really cool one waiting for us in a near future. Our group is so much fun and I’ve got to know some amazing ladies along these few months :)
This Y week kinda sneaked up on me. I have been under an impression that I have plenty of Y polishes and I’m covered for that. Now that the week is finally hear none of my Y polishes really called my name. Not even the untried ones. Bleh! So I decided to go with an oldie but goodie. Color Club Volt Of Light is the only well behaving yellow I own. It is very sheer though and requires at least three coats. But I don’t see that as a huge problem since it also applies really thin. This is a neon shade and dries semi-matte.
This is three coats of Color Club Volt Of Light with G & G HK Girl top coat.
Volt Of Light has a lot of fine green shimmer and it kinda reminds me of those neon yellow markers that you use to highlight parts of text in your school books. IRL this is screaming bright neon and really glows! This would also make a great base for some nail art. I’m just so busy with all the house stuff that I left it be and just enjoyed the super bright neon yellow on it’s own.
Along with the new Spring Chic shades Jindie Nails released Matte Velvet Duo with sTEALth and Hot Pink Floyd. I have already reviewed sTEALth and today I have Hot Pink Floyd for you. Here’s how it’s described on Jindie Nails website “It has a super bright neon pink crelly base with iridescent, color shifting squares and hex in blue/purple/green. It also has bits of real silver flakes throughout!”. Like in sTEALth, there’s lovely depth to this and it’s absolutely stunning with and without top coat.
This is three thin coats of Hot Pink Floyd alone and the last two photos have G & G HK Girl top coat.

Hot Pink Floyd has the same great formula as sTEALth and application is really smooth. Two coats would be enough for shorter nails but my longer one needed three thin coats.
Matte Velvet Duo is limited time so get yours while these pretties are still around!

On last week’s ABC Challenge Meredith from Perfectly Polished did these pink nails with Color Club Snow-Flakes. I liked the way those looked and it inspired me to try Snow-Flakes with neon orange. I chose Color Club’s Wham! Pow! from their Poptastic collection and it was just perfect for this look.
For these nails I used three coats of Wham! Pow! and two coats of Snow-Flakes plus Inm Out The Door top coat. The result made my nails look like they were on fire. This was such a bright combination, especially outside in sunlight :D
Since my iPhone 4S has been able to take such accurate pics of my daughters pink clothes and Hello Kitty blanket I decided to test if it works well on pink nail polish too. Photo turned out ok and the color is probably a little closer to reality than it would be if I took the photo using my regular camera.
Warhol is coral-y neon-pink polish. It dries fast and the finish is semi-matte without a topcoat. This needs at least two, rather three coats to be opaque. The shade of pink is delicious on this one :)
In this mani I used Nail Tek II x2, Warhol x2 and Seche Vite.
Here’s a nice summer-y manicure. Color Club Lava Lamp is bright neon orange creme. It’s really cool on it’s own but this time I wanted some depth to the shade so I added Dior Indian Saffron on top of it. Indian Saffron is sheer, peachy color which has a lot of micro-glitter in it.
In the first photo I have one coat of OPI NNS and two coats of Lava Lamp.
On the Second pic I have added two coats of Dior Indian Saffron and a coat of Seche Vite on top.
In the last pic you see what happened to my poor nail yesterday morning. Killer balcony window attacked my left index finger nail and almost tore the whole thing off. I can tell you that really HURT and it actually still does! The torn part is still attached and it’s hanging by a tiny bit of nail. I don’t have the balls to remove it cos it hurts way too much. Now I keep hitting it everywhere and screaming every 5 mins. I filed the nail as short as I could after taking that pic and now I try to survive with a little help from a band aid for the next couple of weeks.
Now I’m also gonna have to live with one nail shorter than the others for a while cos I don’t want to cut all of my nails super short. At least I’m on a maternity leave and no one pays attention to my nails here at home :P
Photo taken in sunlight. This is so bright my camera couldn’t handle it too well.
Photo taken under artificial light to show the glitter a little better
Oh the horror!!!
Another bright color to cheer up this cloudy and wet winter day here in Finland. Jackie Oh! is a lovely coral-y pink neon shade. This is also from the new Poptastic collection.
The quality on this one is also very good. Polish applies well and is opaque in 2-3 coats depending on the length of your nails. Seche Vite dried this one super fast. This shade isn’t a basic neon pink, it’s bright coral color and it makes me think retro-pin up when I look at it. Regardless of the crazy bright color this polish still looks elegant and will look great next to a tanned summer skin.
If these neon shades feel like a bit much to be worn on your finger nails you still might wanna get a bottle for your toes. Bright, summer-y color makes your spring toes look great and summer feels like one step closer :)
Again, the photo does not do justice to the shade. It is much brighter IRL. These neons are just too hard to photograph correctly. You have to try these yourself to know how they really look.
In this mani I used: OPI NNS x1, Jackie Oh! x2 and Seche Vite on top.
Nyt seuraa tunnustus :P Tämä on ensimmäinen kerta yli kuukauteen, kun lakkasin kynteni. Loppuraskaudessa ei enää jaksanut keskittyä kynsiin ja vauvan synnyttyä energiaa oli vielä vähemmän. Noin pitkän tauon jälkeen teki mieli lopettaa kuiva kausi jollakin räväkällä sävyllä ja valitsin siihen tarkoitukseen Color Clubin Mrs. Robinson sävyn uudesta Poptastic neon kokoelmasta.
Here’s a fun fact for you guys :P This is the first time in over a month that I have polish on my nails. Late pregnancy didn’t make me feel like doing my nails and after the baby arrived I had even less energy. After a break that long I needed an energetic shade and I chose Color Club Mrs. Robinson from their new Poptastic neon collection.
This shade is very close to the Power Play shade from their older neon collection. I don’t know if it’s cos of the age of my Power Play bottle but I can see a slight difference between these two shades. I also tested them next to each other on a piece of clear plastic and I was still able to see the difference. Unfortunately this polish is a BIG pain in the butt to photograph and my camera isn’t able to capture the subtle difference between these two shades.
The quality of this polish is excellent. It’s thin, applies like butter and is opaque with two coats. It also dries fast. This is a perfect shade for my skin tone and cos of the great quality I will be using this one more than once.
The photo does not do justice to this shade at all. It is real hot-neon-purple and the camera just sucks all the life out of it :( It might not be a truly unique shade but it sure is beautiful.
On this mani i used: OPI NNS x1, Mrs. Robinson x2 and Seche Vite on top.
Here’s another great shade for short nails, Color Club Limelight. This is a refreshing grass-y-neon-green creme polish and like the photo number two shows, it’s cute on toes too ;)
Limelight is thin in the bottle and quite sheer. For short nails two coats is enough but longer nails will need 3-4 coats. This applies well and dries really fast.
In this mani I used: OPI NNS x2, Color Club Limelight x2 and my best friend Seche Vite on top. This shade is more green in real life. I tried to adjust the colors in Photoshop but I still couldn’t get it to match exactly so the shade in the photos looks a little pale compared to the real thing.
