NOTD: Getting into Summer Mood with Bleached Neons

Friday, June 06, 2014

Hello ladies, 
today I'm back with another NOTD after a really long time. 
I was quite busy these past days and didn't really have the time to write a longer post, and since I haven't show you any nail polished for awhile, I thought that I'll kill two birds with one stone.



















I don't know why (probably due to the weird weather we had recently), but this year I still haven't flipped that switch in my brain that tells me that I need to start wearing brighter shades. I've been reaching for nude and darker nail polishes ever since Spring started because I just wasn't feeling the brighter ones.
Today, I decided to change this as the weather was phenomenal and it's supposed to stay this way for at least this next week. I'm definitely keeping my finger crossed that it's here to stay. 
To get myself into summery mood, I decided to bring out the Maybelline Colorama Bleached Neons that I bough awhile back. 
I couldn't really decide which shade to try first, so I decided to do an accent nail and just use both.

















I got the shades 241 and 242. 
241 is a a light apricot/peachy shade that doesn't really has a lot of that neon effect. It's quite muted down.
242 has more of that neon side to it, and in the bottle it looks more pinky-coral than on my nails. Mateja already mentioned awhile back how this shade looks more orange on her, and it's the same with me, although it doesn't look at orange as it does on the photos below. I'm actually not that bothered with that since I still really like how the colour looks anyway.
Other than that, the application itself is quite tricky and it can get very streaky if you're not careful. I applied 2 coats as the first one was way too streaky. 
The brush is flat & thin, and I definitely wish it would be wider, but it's not hard to work with. I was surprised at how quickly they dried, and they dry to a semi-matte finish. I didn't apply any top coat because I want to see how long they'll last.



























These shades are very difficult to photograph and the actual colour still differs from the photos above, but you get the point. I took pictures in different setups, so that you'll hopefully be able to see the difference.
The left photo is taken indoors, the top right one outside on direct sunlight and the bottom one outside in the shade. 

This NOTD definitely flipped the switch and the brighter shades in my nail polish drawer are already screaming my name. I also cannot wait to wear these two with a tan, they'll probably look even prettier. 

Do you own any Maybelline Bleached Neons? What do you think about them?

  6. Aha, 242 izgleda bolj oranžno kot koralno na meni in sem ga zato nosila do zdaj enkrat. Saj je kljut, ampak bom vedno raje izbrala Cute as a Button, čeprav je drugačen odtenek :)
