L'Oreal Neon Pop! Color Riche Nail Varnish* - £4.99 Boots
I missed a parcel on Saturday morning and with no idea what it was begrudgingly left the house early on a Monday morning to see what it was. Happily the gorgeous bubblegum balloon filled with neon confetti popped out. Underneath was the newest edition to L'Oreal's nail varnish collection 4 neon pop shades. Overall there are 8 shades in the collection and I was sent Banana Pop - a bright yellow, wasabi hint - a pastel green with punch of bright, acid watermelon - a soft neon pink and finally flashing lilac which is gorgeous bright purple shade. L'Oreal advises using a white shade as a base coat to make them pop even more - in all my pictures I haven't used anything except the polish and they are already pretty bright but I can't wait to try this out and see how bright you can really take them.
These are really different to shades I currently own despite my love for neon and pastel shades as they are a cross between the two summer trends. They're not in your face like standard neon varnishes such as the Models Own Neon Ice range but then again they're not soft and pure pastel either. They glide on well and I especially like the thin bottles which will make storing them so much easier. It's also cool that the bottles are so sleek and different to any other brand (take note MUA) which means hunting out your favourites will be so much easier. I'm often torn between pastel and neon shades so this range is perfect for me it's a perfect in between colour selection. I'm pretty sure as this ranges launches during the month I'll be picking up Dating Coral and Lush Tangerine - because of course I don't have enough coral and orange shades. I'm also keen to see what the coverage of Snow in Megeve is like.
