Essie Haute as Hello and Just Shine Super Sparkle Purple - Last Hurrah of Summer Week

Happy weekend to you all! I have a super quick post for you all today, as I'm on my way out the door for class. This is the last day of my Last Hurrah of Summer Week, I hope you've all enjoyed it!

~~~~

First up is Just Shine Super Sparkle Purple. This is the first polish my husband ever picked out for me all by himself so it is very special for me! He picked it up last weekend when he was at Justice (a tween clothing store) picking up a gift for our niece.

This polish is amazeballs!!! I have been wearing it for the past 4 days and I don't think I've ever gotten more compliments on a polish in my life. It is a bright neon purple with tons of iridescent glitter scattered throughout. I mean, let's be real, what is better than neon AND glitter?! Since it is a neon, I layered it over a coat of white. It has worn pretty well for a neon, no major chips and only some minor tipwear. Color me impressed!

Sadly, I could not capture the awesome of this polish in photos. I tried about 20 different lighting situations and camera settings and I even tried to color correct in Photoshop. Nothing worked. So you will have to trust me on this one. It is not nearly as pink or as light as the pictures show. It is a deep, vibrant neon purple, very similar to Color Club Mrs. Robinson but with GLITTA!!! Why must neons be so difficult to photograph?! Anyways, major thanks to the hubby for picking this out for me!! <3 <3

Here's 2 coats of Just Shine Super Sparkle Purple over white. Enjoy! (And imagine this much more vibrant and purple in real life!)

And finally we have Essie Haute as Hello. Haute as Hello is a neon pastel peach creme. I chose to do this one for the Last Hurrah of Summer week because it reminded me a lot of those neon pastel Lime Crime polishes that came out this summer! There is something so cool about a polish that can be pastel yet neon at the same time. LOVE THIS! I didn't have any problems with the formula, and pictured is a smooth 3 coats. I bet it would look amazing on tanned skin!

Here's 3 coats of Essie Haute as Hello.

What do you guys think of these polishes? What are your go-to summer colors?

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've all enjoyed these bright and summery polishes! See you all tomorrow =)

    1. Hmmm I'm not sure I did anything special, just applied as I normally do. I usually use pretty thin coats, maybe you're using too thick of a coat in your application?
