Love in Neon

I admit that I don't do true neon's very often, they usually look pretty harsh on me rather than flattering.  Not so with Orange Knockout by China Glaze.   Which is doubly amazing because orange is usually not a great color on me either.  I am totally ok with this one working for me though because I am in love love with this super bright polish.  It's just so happy and it screams summer to me.
This is three coats and while the photos make it look like there is a VNL, it was not apparent in real life.  What's with that??  Anyway.  On my accent nail I used an additional coat of CG Sun Worshiper as well as two coats of Color Club Turn the Other Chic.
I love the soft, satiny finish of this polish, I think it may be part of why this polish looks so good on me, it's keeping it somewhat softer than a high gloss.
This is a total win for a summer color and currently in my top five list.  If you've had trouble wearing neon's in the past, give this one a try.  It's well worth it.


  1. Hot hot oranges! I like that satin finish too! <3 China Glaze Sun Worshiper :D :D :D

  2. Wow, that's a summer-y colour! Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it a bit matte? Anyway, a really nice colour. Love the accent nail too!


  3. Hi KimsKieNails,
    I would reply to you personally but you're set to no reply, hopefully you check back.
    I wouldn't call it a matte finish because it's not completely dull, in my opinion it's more of a satin since it's between the gloss of most polishes and an outright matte. I really like it though, it's nice and soft.

  4. I am not a fan of neon colours but it's alright to wear once in a while.


I really do appreciate your comments and I try to respond to all of them either directly via email or here in the comments section if you're set to "no reply".
