This polish came out a little later than the others in the collection. I had the rest already purchased and when I saw this in the display, of course it found its way into my collection. 🙂 American Apparel Neon Blue (Neon, Summer 2011) is a bold, bright blue creme:
Picture taken in sunlight. Thankfully, this was another one that applied very well; I needed just two easy coats for full coverage. It isn’t really a true glowy neon, but it is quite bright. Since it’s well-pigmented, it has a strong presence on the nails. It may be pigmented, but the finish doesn’t exactly look solid. Its opacity has a somewhat translucent feel. I know that’s contradictory, but that’s the only way I can explain it. It’s a quality that makes it look more neon than a regular bright blue creme. I’m trying to pinpoint exactly what shade of blue this is. It’s a little turquoisey, but not enough to approach bright sky blue territory, and it’s not quite a true royal blue either. Neon blues aren’t so common, so I love seeing more (even if the color doesn’t really lend itself to being glowy.) I paired this with Essie Flirty Fuchsia on my toes.
