**I have a drawer of untried, not swatched or posted colors. I see that its over-flowing again so I thought I would share with you a few this coming week. Starting with Lemon by Lilypad Lacquer out of Australia. It was a gift from the owner **
Yellow isn’t my color, never has been never will be.I am a natural blond and yellow isn’t my thing. It not meant to look good on me! Now with that said.. The biggest things this summer seems to be neon colors, themals and textured ones. I can’t get my self to like textured polishes. :(. I love the feel of smooth nails! I am a glitter junkie, why would I want textured?? Neon? Well that is another story.
I haven’t tried any other neons out there this summer. When I got a package with a order from Lilypad Lacquer she was kind enough to add a few samples she thought I might like..
Lemon from her Neon Lifesavers Collection was one of the samples. Now when you look at her swatch on her etsy site? I can’t help but wonder how many coats that is.. :/ reason I say that is.. Well Meet the Lemon..
Named after a fruit that many us like as lemonaid, pie, cookies or as fruity part of a drink..
It does seem to match up with the name! Only you got to think its neon and it doesn’t really match the outside of the lemon as much as it does the inside.
This one is taken in the shade. I was trying to show how pretty of a lemon yellow this really is.
Now you can see why I say it really matches the inside of the lemon?
For a super bright neon color? Oh yeah for a yellow it hits it right on. If you like yellow, and don’t care if it goes with your skin tone or not (most the time I don’t care, yellow well I do)
Now my swatch is three coats with one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Top Coat to add a bit of shine, and I thinking that if I built it up I might of gotten to to cover the white tips of my nails. If you look at her swatch on etsy? I think that has got to be at least 4 or more coats, or over another one. It seems to have a green tint to it that I didn’t see in my swatches.
Neon yellow.. is it for you? Would you wear it? You can pick yours up at Lilypad Licquer on etsy.. What neon color do you like the best this summer?
