China Glaze Limonyte - Last Hurrah of Summer Week

Hi everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend =) If you were wondering, OUR WIENER DOGS BOTH WON FIRST PLACE IN THEIR HEATS AT THE RACES!! We have been doing this for 5 years now and neither of them has ever won so it was super exciting! They were both eliminated in the final rounds, but we took home two shiny blue ribbons this year. Yay for UZI and Arrow!! So proud of my little weens =)

Anyways, back to blogging business! Fall is upon us but I still find myself reaching for brights and neons all the time. I figured this would be the time to get the rest of the summer out of my system and do lots of fun, bright and summery colors for this week! Hence, the Last Hurrah of Summer Week is born!

First up is one of my all-time favorite polishes, China Glaze Limonyte. Limonyte is from the 2005 Nervy Neons collection and is long discontinued and extremely difficult to find. It is one of the most sought after polishes in the nail community and was one of my very first lemmings! I finally found it on eBay awhile ago for a STEAL and scooped it right up. Limonyte is lusted after by many, and for good reason - it is PHENOMENAL!! It is a neon green packed with yellow-gold shimmer. There are many similar polishes out there but none of them GLOW quite like Limonyte does =)

It is quite sheer, so it took 4 coats to reach opacity. Another caveat of this polish is the drying time. It takes foreverrrrrrrrr to dry. I honestly did not even leave it on for long enough to see how long it would take to dry completely. This might be one of those polishes that I would do a few hours before bedtime and give it all night to dry. You know me, 4 coats and super long drying time does not stop me from loving such an amazing polish!

Here's 4 coats of China Glaze Limonyte. Don't forget to click these babies to enlarge, you won't regret it! Enjoy =)







Thanks for stopping by today!! See you all tomorrow for another Last Hurrah of Summer polish!

    1. Yup, it's definitely fallen victim to the scalpers on eBay but if you keep your eyes peeled, hopefully you can find it for a decent price!

  19. I LOVE my bottle of Limonyte! It's so blinding! Also, congrats to the dogs! I have a weiner dog too, but he would never be able to compete in a race...too distracted! They're so cute though!

    1. Thanks! LOL Our dogs are easily distracted as well, last year they both came in last place in their heats, and this year they both came in first. It's a crapshoot!

    1. I don't have I'm With the Lifeguard! I really should get it so I can do a comparison. There is also a Spoiled polish that is similar too that I've been wanting to compare!

  21. Wow, you've found it! This one is so pretty!

  22. This green is a serious rare and amazing gem! GAH I love it so much! It took forever for dry on me too though!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I seriously love this polish, and wish I had been into nail polish and stayed in back then! I didn't know about China Glaze back then, to think of the rarities I could have had... :)

    There is a new polish by Wet N Wild in their Fergie line called Glowstick; I plan to get it to see if it's close at all to Limonyte. I don't own the latter, alas, and won't anytime soon unless I win the lottery, LOL, but I'll compare it to photos and make do that way. Great shots!!
