Color Club Limelight and Amp'd Up

Friday, June 21, 2013

Good morning! I'm thinking of changing up my photos a bit. So, that means trying out new hand positions and changing around how each photos look. I want my photos to be longer in width and shorter in height. I'll probably try and take some new photos and edit them differently sometime next week. Anyways, let's see what I have to show today!


Color Club Limelight is a darker neon green. The formula on this was pretty watery so I needed quite a few coats to make it opague. Each coat dried pretty fast so building the color was easy. You can also layer this color over a white base to lessen the number of coats you have to apply too. This is four coats below.

Color Club Amp'd Up is a bright warm neon orange with a hint of red to it. Formula and application on this was great. Better than the other neon I own from Color Club. This color absolutely pops off the nails and its a great shade for summer. It was hard to photograph though since what your seeing below isn't exactly what the color looks like in real life. I applied three coats.

Both are nice neon colors but the green isn't my favorite. Even after all those coats, my nail line was still visible. Like most neon colors, both dried kind of matte so a top coat is definitely needed if you want a glossy finish on them.

What are some of your neon recommendations? Also, what do you think of these two colors? Let me know below if you guys like having more than one color swatched for a post too!

  2. Wow, four coats is a lot but if they dry quickly, I guess that it's not so bad. They're nice and bright!

    1. Thanks Jennie. Yep, the drying time being fast was good in my books in account of having to apply so many coats.

    1. Not really since they don't have that super shiny quality that jellies have.
