China Glaze Poolside Collection 2010: Sun Worshiper Swatch & Review


Today’s post is about a simple dotticure I did with two neons from China Glaze: Japanese Koi and Sun Worshiper. I will be reviewing Sun Worshiper, a yummy mango yellow, since that is the base colour. I have to admit I have yet to find a neon polish that doesn’t need a million coats to get rid of the streakiness. Sun Worshiper, from the Poolside Collection of Summer 2010, was also streaky and needed 5 coats to become opaque! I would recommend using a white crème as a base and then using the neon to reduce the number of coats needed to make the colour opaque. Like all neons, Sun Worshiper dries matte. Without a clear top coat, this is a chalky, streaky mess. But add a top coat and the result is worth all the trouble! 

Polka dots are my absolute favourite form of nail art. I chose Japanese Koi as I wanted a neon from the same colour family to dot with. Here is the end result:
