Rue 21 Nail Deco

*Purchased with my own money.

There comes a point during the winter when I get tired of dark colors and wearing a coat.  Usually this happens in March, but this year it struck early. Like the last week of January early.  I don't know what caused it, but I need a trial separation from winter. Winter I love you, but I think we need to see other seasons. Cue the bright nail polish colors.

I've had this color for a while, but never really knew what to do with it.  I'm not really an orange person.  On night I NEEDED something bright and after a mega fail with Orly's Glowstick I wanted something that was opaque in fewer that five coats.  That brought me to this beauty, a neon orange with tiny holographic glitter, and pink shimmer.  I think, YES!

I haven't been into a Rue 21 for a while but the last time I was there neon polishes were everywhere.  This color was taunting me on every flat surface, there was no way I was leaving the store without it. So after months of sitting in my collection collecting dust I gave it a shot.  And I love it.  I loved it so much a photo of it made it's way onto my instagram.  My user name is @lynbdesigns if you're wondering.

On a slightly different note, I've found m watermark again.  It had gotten lost in the chaos that was my photo folder. Now that it's back, I feel more like a blogger.  I know, it's weird.

Back to the polish, I used just two coats of this to get full coverage.  That's a rarity for me.  I then wore it for three days, and was nervous to take it off.  I thought for sure there would be staining. Happily, there wasn't staining. Just nice normal colored nails. Yay!

Overall, this color might convert me to an orange lover.  I love the colon in general, but it's tricky for me to pull off on my nails.  I've been told by several people that I look good wearing darker orange colors of clothing, but I on't really see it. One thing I know for sure is that neons will be bug for me this spring, even if the rest of the world has moved on.

What's your opinion of neon polishes this year?
