China Glaze Poolside Collection Sneak Peek

China Glaze Poolside Collection Sneak Peek

Review coming soon (probably tomorrow, but in case the sky falls, no promises!)… but boy, capturing the brightness and color of neons on camera is a pain in the behind.  Like I cannot even express to you how many shots it took just to get a few decent ones worth posting.

So, I thought, “You know what might be really cool?  If Temptalia readers shared their advice and expertise on how to best apply neon nail polish.”

Share your tips & tricks to get the best out of your neon lacquers!

I always thought the thinner the coats of nail polish the better, and I’d paint a ton of thin coats on. Now I just do 2-3 coats that are not so thick they’re gloppy, but more thick than thin and it does wonders! You just have to be patient for it to dry. 🙂

I agree with this. China Glaze makes fab neon polishes that don’t need a white base, just 2-3 thin coats. The great thing is that they dry super fast, but usually matte so you’ll need a top coat to make it glossy.

There is the trick of applying the white polish base which was already mentioned, but I usually like to use a shear pearly color on top of them. I have a nice neon pink/orange polish that I like to use a sheer coral pearl polish over.

I went on a China Glaze kick last summer but was thoroughly disappointed in the quality. I thought the colors were gorgeous. However, the coats were so thin. I tried putting on a couple of coats but it just didn’t work for me. This was the case not only for the bright colors but the dark ones as well.
