Neon! And glitter!

I asked my 4 year old daughter what her favorite color was the other day and she put her finger on her chin and said, “I like rainbow! And Glitter! And Sparkles!” I think I have to agree with her. I would also add neon.

So this Color Club Ultra-Astral neon pink with glitter is right up my alley…sorta.

It’s a great color! A really bright pink with glitter in it. The glitter looks holo in the sunlight but it seems to mostly glitter purple. Here are some pictures:

Here’s where it starts to stray just a bit from what I like. The glitter gets hidden in the polish. Sure, there’s still glitter and you can see it under the polish, but it doesn’t sparkle. And I’ve got 4 coats of top coat on here and it’s still not smooth. That’s not something a few more coats of top coat (or a thicker top coat) couldn’t fix. Some glitter polishes just tend to “eat” top coat. This might be one.

But these few issues won’t keep me from loving this color! And I have a few more colors from this collection (Starry Temptress Summer 2011) that I can’t wait to try out!

Until next time!
