Essie – Sunday Funday

This is the only one I got from the new collection. I was bummed at how it turned out to be too orangey of a coral pink. It dries darker than it looks in the bottle, and the glitter doesn’t show through very well.

Here’s the most accurate representation I got of it!

When I swatched it up close, it does show the glitter a little better though. Forgive the cuticle oil, sorry! 🙂

For a color like this, I think I’ll stick to China Glaze – Surreal Appeal!

China Glaze – Surreal Appeal Comparison

I had to get Surreal Appeal from the Cirque collection. It turned out to be the perfect pinkish coral creme that is bright but not a neon.

I grabbed 3 other China Glaze pinks and compared them all. The pinky nail is actually Flip Flop Fantasy but I hate that the camera can NOT capture that color no matter what I try. I went to Google Images to search for an accurate Flip Flop Fantasy swatch and there aren’t any! They all look like their cameras freaked out as well, so all I can say is…. go get it, its one of my most favorite polishes ever and you just don’t know what its like until you put it on your own nails. 🙂

Anyway, the others came out really accurately though! The bottle is Surreal Appeal, so you can see it ends up darker on the nail.

Here is a shadier swatch, followed by one with a little more light. Its Wicked Style, Sugar High, Surreal Appeal. Let’s just ignore the pinky. 🙂

After comparing these, I found I don’t even like Sugar High as much anymore, its a little too blue-ish for my skin tone.

Color Club – Bubble Pop

I tried to swatch this with China Glaze – Flirty Tankini because it is really hard to tell them apart, but I have to swatch in our new place at a certain time of day to get the right indirect sun!

I chose to wear Bubble Pop instead of Flirty Tankini because it was just a tiny bit brighter! Flirty Tankini had more of a vintage coral look and Bubble Pop was more neon and summery. But again, they are really hard to tell apart still, if that makes sense. 🙂

Here is Color Club – Bubble Pop!

It was hard to really depict how neon it is though, so I tried to get a more shady picture so you can see the Pop more. It is REALLY hard to photograph these summer neon polishes!

I am so excited that OPI – German-icure and Every Month Is Oktoberfest are on the way to my house!

OPI – DS Reflection

This is the ONLY color I own that I can describe as a *perfect* red pink!

All of my other red pinks or pink reds I had like China Glaze Sneakerhead were just too bright, too red, too magenta, too sheer, too something. But not this one!

Its also a DS, so its gorgeous and glitzy. Its a reddish base with pink and coral particles. Kind of ruby red grapefruity! Its a holographic too.

This doesn’t always show up, but there is a slight buttery summery yellow flash that you get with this one at times. I could capture it more easily in the bottle.

Not a new color, but if you haven’t tried it, you should… its awesome. 🙂

China Glaze – Pink Plumeria

I’m trying to get settled into my new home here, which includes trying to find a new spot for swatching! As you’ll see, I haven’t found the right spot yet. But I didn’t want it to keep me from swatching my favorite new China Glaze neon!

China Glaze - Pink Plumeria

This one really surprised me! I didn’t expect it to be so shimmery! The pop kind of comes from a milky shimmer underneath, and then if you look closely, you can see this really warm hidden shimmer that comes out at certain angles.

I got the Pixi Glow polish too, and it looks similar in the bottle, I’ll have to do a comparison!

Belated Giveaway Winners next! So sorry for the worst delay ever, but hopefully a wedding, honeymoon and moving in with the new hubby is a good enough excuse that I’ll only use once!? 😀

Nox Twilight – Citrus

This one was pretty appropriately named since it really reminds me of pink grapefruit! The shimmer is really warm and contrasts well with the base coral color.

I’m in crazy wedding-planning mode now! I finally have a real wedding date, now that I’ve coordinated with the church, the reception place, my photographer, DJ… and all of the rest! Its May 26th!

OPI – I Eat Mainely Lobster

When I saw this one in the new collection, I had to get it because its such a pretty bright pink coral color with a matching shimmer.

I feel like it might have been bright enough to throw the picture off a little, so it is a bit brighter than this…

After I had it on, I was like ugh, this does NOT look good on me! Its a shame, I’ll probably swap it away, but it is really pretty in the bottle!
