With all the summer nail polish we’ve swatched this year, there really haven’t been enough true neon shades. But when we received the Quo By Orly Summer 2015 Neon collection I knew I found the shades I’ve been waiting for. I’ve used quite a few Quo By Orly polishes in the past with the uneven brushes and consequent application issues. This neon collection does have the same brush issues but the formulas are fantastic and I didn’t have any problems with application at all. Unlike most neons, these dry shiny and have some serious wear time. I went almost a week with Hype with minimal tip wear. I used Seche Vite with all of these.
Adrenaline is a neon lime green with a lot of yellow in it. And while it’s not a shade I would normally go for, for a neon it’s spectacular. Two coats and a top coat and it was perfect.
I found Jawbreaker to be more neon coral than neon orange and it’s really much brighter than the photo shows. This is going to be my next pedi shade.
It’s so hard to get a true neon purple but Rush comes pretty close. It’s not quite as in your face as the others but it’s so pretty in person.
I must be on a hot pink kick lately because Hype was by far my favourite. And I got full coverage and a week with minimal tip wear from one coat. Hype is going to be on my nails a lot this summer.
You can only get Quo By Orly polishes at Shoppers Drug Mart and the neons are limited edition, so if you love them like I do, run and grab them.
