China Glaze - (Failed) Pool Party

Huh I didn't even want to post these swatches but I think I'll never be able to take color accurate picture of this radioactive nail polish. :D That's why I'm talking about failed Pool Party by China Glaze from Poolside 2010 Summer collection. I wanted it sooooo badly, because it looks sooo awesome and when I got it, I's in love. Until I put it on my nails... xo
It's still pretty, don't get me wrong but I expected a real neon pink color but this beauty looks so orange on me. :D And it's even moreee orange on pictures as in RL. I gave up from trying to catch its real color so here are some failed and totally not color accurate pictures. :D 
I added 3 coats, dries super fast and matte so you have to add a layer of TC to get that shiny finish. Are you ready? :D
Sun
Shade
This one was taken with my laptop camera.
It's orange on me but still not so much as these pictures. xo I checked lots of swatches to show you how does it look like for real on me and I think Elaine from Lacquer Laine really catch its color. I really expected a neon pink so I's a little dissapointed but I still need to layer it over white to see if I'll like it more. :D

My nails are naked for two days now and I still don't have any inspiration. I hope I'll work something out till tommorow. 

Do you have any from Poolside collection? Do you wear such bright colors? I must admit I didn't like them before but now.... I want every single neon pink polish on this world. :$

Have a nice and looong weekend,
Ivana :k

  7. I recommend applying a white polish as a base before you put a neon over it. I do that with all my neons and I find for me it makes the colour way more vibrant. Hope this helps x
