daily nails - American Apparel Neon Orange

daily nails - American Apparel Neon Orange

Since the launch of their initial line of polishes, I've been a HUGE fan of American Apparel polishes, listing many of them amongst my absolute favorite polishes. Naturally, when I got the information that they were releasing a NEON collection, I was super stoked! OK, on to the swatches! In the collection, there are 6 colors, Neon Orange, Neon Yellow, Neon Green, Neon Coral, Neon Purple, and Neon Red, and today, I have 3 of those to show you!

Bear in mind that neons photograph horribly, and photos never do them justice. These are truly retina searing (especially the Neon Yellow!!)
Neon tangerine orange

This is full on neon Kraft Macaroni & Cheese orange. Formula was a tad on the thick side, but still workable. I found that this was shinier than most neons I've tried, but not glossy by any stretch. I enjoy this color, it's super fun! :-P The second picture, though blurry, is closer to the actual brightness of the color. In my head I'm thinking this is very similar to China Glaze Sun Worshipper, I'll have to do a comparison later.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: Stamps ok on lighter colors, but not darker colors.

Finish: Neon, 2-3 coats to be opaque.
