|Left: Highlight of My Summer

After spending a month in the cold winter weather back in China, the first thing I wanted to do when I was back in Melbourne was to paint my nails a nice and bright colour for summer. Sometimes it’s just too hard to pick out a single colour, so yeh, two colours it is 😀
Highlight of My Summer and Son of a Peach are both from the 2013 Summer collection from China Glaze from my memory, and I may or may not have bought both of these just for the name LOL. Neons are known for its horrendous formula, and these two were no exception.

Highlight of My Summer isn’t exactly a neon, it’s just a really bright mint green. I love the colour, and it’s especially great in the warmer weather, because it makes your hand look tanner. But the formula, oh dear Lord, the formula is so bad. I used 4 coats, along with my regular topcoat, to get a reasonably even coverage. Layering it over white may have helped, but I never do that for any neons.

Son of a Peach’s formula was slightly better, I used 3 coats I think. As we all know, neons are extremely hard to photograph, you’ll just have to take my word for this, it is definitely a neon peach! This is quite similar to Flip Flop Fantasy by China Glaze, but slightly more peachy than orange – yes that’s different enough for me to own them both. Again, great colour for Summer, but horrible formula 😦
