Monday Blues: China Glaze Splish Splash

Hello my beautiful readers! It's time for another Monday blue! I'm having new windows installed today so my house is a mess. I hope I can get this post up in time. Forgive me if I'm not that talkative today, but I have a lot of pictures to speak instead of me. 

This is China Glaze Splish Splash from this year's Summer Neons collection. I don't really know how a blue neon should look like but I can tell you that this is bright! It's sort of a water color so the name is very appropriate. Some of the other names in this collection are a little weird, but they definitely nailed this one. It has tons of gorgeous shimmer and it's just such a yummy color. 

My pictures are all in artificial light because in the sun photos it looked much lighter than in reality. Like most neons it dries to a matte finish that absolutely needs a shiny top coat. It was the first time I used Seche Vite and I didn't wrap my tips properly, so please excuse the shrinkage (it looks like tip wear but it really is not). 

The formula is pretty thick but still manageable. I did two coats and there was a decent amount of opacity. The problem however is the drying time. This dries very slow, so prepare to use your best fast drying top coat over it! 

I think this is my favorite summer polish so far! I still have to try Orly Skinny Dip though, so we'll see. Don't forget to check out the other Monday Blues posts, by these lovely ladies:
