It isn't Summer until we have a China Glaze Summer collection rammed with neons and this year the collection is a total wow. Most of the neons have a subtle shimmer that make them really amazing, there are a couple of creams and a jelly in there as well and it's taken me ages to get this post done because I've kept most of the shades on for at least a day or two rather than doing one mega swatching session!
You're going to have to forgive the varying state of my nails and cuticles in these pictures, in some of them I have acrylics on, in others I don't, some of the acrylics are not good, some are overdue an infill and in nearly all of them my cuticles are terrible. As I've been wearing acrylics I can only use a non-acetone based polish remover and I have to say I find it far more damaging to my cuticles than pure acetone.... anyway, I'm heading off topic so lets just crack on with it. Also, please forgive me, I find neons very difficult to capture with my camera. Oh and PS - I have extremely bright white acrylic tips on in some of these photographs which are nigh on impossible to cover with polish... normal nails would almost certainly achieve full coverage.
Final note, a lot of these colours contain shimmer but because of the size of the images that I can fit on this page you can't see them too well, please feel free to click to enlarge the pictures.

And there we have it. I'm sorry my pictures just don't do the collection justice, my camera does NOT love neons! The only colours it captured well are all the less neon shades. For more accurate pictures, take a look at Vampy Varnish because hers are amazing.
