I could not wait to Remove my old mani and replace it with one of my new China Glaze neons. The first one I chose to wear is I'm With the Lifeguard, a bright neon green with light green yellow shimmer.
It applied well in two coats which also gave me full coverage! I found the formula to be a little thick and it got a bit goopy the longer the top was off the bottle. It was easy to apply but I would consider dropping some thinner in the bottle before the next use keep the formula manageable.
As usual it dried to a matte finish which was quickly corrected by a nice coat of Seche Vite. Now it's nice and shiny :) and the shimmer really makes this polish glow!
I had actually applied this in a rush before going to bed so it wasn't my best application, but I can't remember if I wrapped the tips with topcoat or not. Either way only a couple of days in I got some subtle tip wear, but you can hardly tell. The photos are actually on day two of wear with the "tip wear" visible. Not all that noticeable.
This is a pretty cool shade, the only other neon green I own is Claire's mood polish which changes yellow... Also my only yellow neon lol. I have honestly been intimidated to buy these bright neons in the past because I know they are a pain to apply and maintain especially in the summer. They usually need to be built up to five+ coats on their own or paired with a white base. I'm super glad I choose these neons though, none of that seems to apply, it must be the shimmer.
Do you have any polishes from this collection? What are your favorite neons?
