Polish Addict Nail Color Summer Neon Collection Review

Press Sample
Happy Sunday! Can you believe it? 3 days. THREE!! OMG...I am excited, nervous, anxious, scared...basically all kinds of emotions all in one! Anyway, I am so ready for this to be over. Enough of that...let's take a look at the Polish Addict Summer Neon Collection.

Each of these had a good formula. Some were downright PERFECT. They all needed three coats, except where stated otherwise. These are all jellies with scattered holo pigment, so the formulas are sheer. Many still left some visible nail line (VNL), which will be mentioned accordingly. They all dry to a satin finish as well.

Chasing the Sun is described by the maker as "a neon yellow orange jelly with scattered holo." This one applied evenly in three coats, but still left some VNL, which isn't very apparent.

Patrick Starfish is a "neon rose red jelly with scattered holo." This is one that had an absolutely AMAZING formula. This is such a gorgeous reddish pink! I love it!

Lime Light is a "neon green with scattered holo." Another great formula here. These three coats went on effortlessly. Check out how bright it is!

Caution, according to the maker, is a "neon orange jelly with scattered holo." This one had more of a burnt orange neon look, making it different from Chasing the Sun above. Unfortunately, the differences are slightly more apparent in real life. Although the differences are slight, they are more distinguishable than what my photos reveal.

Neon Moon is a "neon blue jelly with scattered holo." This one is a very vivid cobalt color. Again, another PERFECT formula. This one is one of the more opaque colors in the collection. I used two easy coats for these photos. I am soooooo in LOVE with this polish! You will also be happy to know that there was no staining upon removal! #winning

Barbie Code is a "neon pink jelly with scattered holo." This one was extremely sheer. Three coats were used and there was still some VNL. Regardless, this hot pink is definitely an eye catching color!

Aqua Haze according to the maker, is a "neon sky blue jelly with scattered holo and navy holo microglitters." This one is not as bright as the others in the collection, but absolutely gorgeous nonetheless. It was very sheer, so four coats were used to for it to become opaque. This one dries to a semi-matte like finish, so topcoat was used. Again, even after four coats, there was s slightly noticeable VNL. I think this one is super cute!

Kiss A Mermaid is described by the maker as "a neon red jelly with scattered holo." Unfortunately, this one appears to be more of a deep red toned orange. I spoke with Laura about this one and she had already updated her shop information to reflect the changes she has noticed with this one. She recently switched to a 5-free base, which may have impacted the color after her original formulation and testing. Anyway, this one has a great formula and three coats were used for these photos.

Bikini Bottom is a "neon yellow jelly with scattered holo." This one was also really sheer and still had a significant amount of VNL after four coats. The formula was absolutely amazing though.

Sea Witch is a "neon purple jelly with scattered holo and matte purple microglitters." The formula on this one was AMAZINGLY, PERFECT, MAGNIFICENTLY WONDERFUL!! I love this! Seriously. Like Neon Moon, this one is more opaque than the others in the collection. I used two easy coats for these photos. Oh yeah...did I mention I love this one?!
