Orly Glowstick - Last Hurrah of Summer Week

Happy Friday everyone!! For me, Friday means an evening class and then early to bed for my Saturday morning class. Yuck!! But anyways, I figured that my Last Hurrah of Summer Week wouldn't be complete without an eye-searing neon so I chose the brightest one of them all - Orly Glowstick!!

Orly Glowstick is a SUPER BRIGHT neon yellow. It's a bit green-leaning, and is pretty much the color of a yellow highlighter. I layered 2 coats of Glowstick over a white creme, because layering neons over white helps them pop more. Also, without the white, Glowstick was a bit sheer and I probably would have had visible nail lines with it. The formula on this was surprisingly good, no complaints here! Glowstick is the perfect summer color, it looks great on tanned skin (which I do not have, lol) and reminds me of the glowsticks that we always bring on camping trips!

Without further ado, here is 2 coats of Orly Glowstick over one coat of white. It's hard to capture the brightness of neons in photos, but I've done my best. Just imagine what you see here, but 10 times brighter!




Thanks for stopping by!! See you all tomorrow for the conclusion of Last Hurrah of Summer Week!
