I stumbled upon this beautiful neon pink gorgeousness a couple of weeks ago and I immediately fell in love with it. As ususally, it is impossible to capture its true shade, but imagine the most beautiful light pink neon you’ve ever seen and this polish is even better than that.

The pigmentation is fantastic, but it’s very uneven and streaky. I applied 4(!) coats and it’s still not even. I coated it with a top coat to even out the surface a little bit, but it just wasn’t right.

I’m horribly sorry about it, because I love the colour so much! I don’t even know what to do with it, I wouldn’t even give it to my worst ennemy. Maybe it will make do for water marbleing….
