I’m a bit late to the neon fan club/party. I’ve never really been a fan of bright colors until very recently – like within the past month. Just to show you how late I am to this, this color is from Color Club’s 2009 summer collection called Electro Candy.
I didn’t know what to expect from this collection. I knew two things: this color is bright and it’s Color Club.
Color Club Electro Candy has a slight shimmer that runs through this, keeping this from being a full creme. Was I disappointed? Not at all. I liked the shimmer because it gave the color some life. I think if it had been a plain neon, I’d have found it a bit dull and boring…utterly predictable. In trying to keep it in the neon family yet still make it that bit different, the shimmer was added. I’ve been told it’s a turquoise shimmer, but I don’t see that. It’s almost a faint blue to me.
Formula for this was wonderful and a total surprise. Most neons or brights that I’ve tried tend to be a bit gloopy and underperform when it comes to application. Not this one! It actually went on nice and smooth on the first application. It was a bit bright, but the second layer really made my eyes feel like they were burning – I can’t wait to try the other colors I have from this collection. This formula was also quick drying as well. Some neon formulas have been hit or miss with short or extremely long dry times.
As always, please right click on the image and choose Open In New Tab. When in the new tab, click on the image (it will triple in size!) to view the photo in its original size.
See that piece of dust that’s looming over my middle finger? It looks like a blur and I have an arrow pointing to it. Somehow I managed to get a piece of dust trapped inside the lens. The only way I can remove that is by taking my camera apart…or purchasing a new one. I’m not averse to purchasing a new camera. I just don’t want to take away from my nail polish funds. This piece of dust only shows up during shade shots, anyway. I think I can deal with it. I hope you can, too!
Thank you for making it this far. If you liked what you read, please share this – sharing is caring!
