Welcome back to my review and swatches of China Glaze’s amazing neon polishes from the Poolside Collection.
China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada
This polish was instant love for me. I adore green nail polish in general, but (and I know I say this a lot) this blew my mind.
Kiwi Cool-Ada is an intense neon green with a jelly-ish creme finish. It’s not terribly opaque, but as I mentioned yesterday, neons look best over a white base, anyway. I found this to be less streaky than Sun Worshiper or Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, two medium thick coats are quite even, three are deliciously perfect. Other than the streakiness I am pleased with the application of both polishes I’m showing you today. If you read my blog regularly you already know that I prefer flat brushes, but China Glaze’s round ones are fine (still, even essence has flat brushes in their colour&go polishes).

China Glaze Sun Worshiper
Basically, Sun Worshiper applies like Kiwi Cool-Ada, except for a bit more streakiness. It’s a neon orange that kind of reminds me of radioactive yolks. I loved wearing this even though I generally feel that orange doesn’t suit me. I guess that’s because the awesome!neon aspect overrides the question whether or not a colour flatters.

I hope you love these colours as much as I do and please come back tomorrow to see the last two polishes from the Poolside Collection.
