Those of you who read my Blog regularly might remember my post on The Nail Junkie Fish and the photo of my entire haul from Aleta's Etsy Shop. I of course also had to order a polish from the Neon Shimmer Jelly Line. Out of all of the polishes available there, Watermelon screamed "buy me" the loudest. I bet, when you look at the pictures you can just imagine the overwhelming squeal ;-)
The first pictures shows Watermelon indoors in daylight without Top Coat
The next two pictures are taken indoors in daylight with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer
The last two photos are taken outdoors, the first in the sun, the second in the shade
I applied two coats of The Nail Junkie Watermelon over Zoya Anchor Base Coat and used Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer to add a dose of high shine. The formula is immaculate, and I have no further comments on it except FLAWLESS. Whenever I read the line "nearly opaque in one coat" I always wonder how it actually looks. To save you from this thought below a picture of one coat of Watermelon on my nails:
See? OPAQUE!!!! Still, the intensity is a bit less and depending on how I moved and twisted my hands, I could detect some thinner covered spots.
Final thoughts: I love that happy, bright orange. It has enough red in it that I can get away with it (normally my skin does not like oranges). Sadly, I could not capture the delicate shimmer in it but it is there and it is visible, not strongly so but enough to complement the brightness of the neon color.
I ordered The Nail Junkie Watermelon with Aleta's Etsy Shop here.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
