China Glaze I’m With the Lifeguard Nail Lacquer

One of twelve shades from China Glaze Summer Neons Collection, China Glaze I’m With the Lifeguard Nail Lacquer ($3.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “glimmering lime green.” I’d say that’s a rather apt description! It’s a vibrant, slightly cool-toned lime green with soft shimmer. Cult Nails Deal With It is warmer, darker, less neon. China Glaze Cha Cha Cha is also darker, moer golden, and not neon. China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada was the closest shade that I could think of, though it has a cream finish.
