Hello my lovelies! Hope your week is going great! It suddenly got a lot colder here and I'm freezing. It's really weird that it's the middle of August and I'm wearing a fleece jacket as I type this. I'm leaving for vacation in two days and I'm going to London! So I'm pretty stressed out about packing and organizing everything. But don't worry, I've scheduled a few posts for when I'm away so you can check back every few days to see new stuff on the blog! Today's post is the last of the China Glaze Summer Neons I got. I'm not a fan of pink but everyone needs a neon pink in their collection so here's mine.

Hang-Ten Toes is a hot pink neon with a purple-ish shimmer. I was kinda puzzled by this name and I kept looking at the bottle to see if I got it right. But then I remembered that the China Glaze names are mostly puns so I googled it to see if it made any sense. Turns out Hang Ten or Hanging Ten is actually a surfing maneuver. Am I the only one who didn't know what it meant?

I'm not sure this polish is a proper neon, but it's very very bright. Compared to my Essie Tour De Finance, this is a lot brighter and it actually makes the Essie look muted. What can I say? I don't have a lot of bright pinks and fuchsias so these are the only comparisons I can do. The formula on this one is kind of on the thick side. It's pigmented but still pretty sheer so you will need 3 coats to make it fully opaque. It doesn't dry completely matte but still to a rubbery finish, so top coat is needed to make it shiny.

This color needed something really fun and girly on top so I picked my favorite stamp from the Fab Ur Nails FUN 2 plate. Seriously, I don't even like Hello Kitty but I somehow can't get enough of this image. I stamped with China Glaze Liquid Leather and here's the result.
What do you think? I'm not a very girly girl myself but sometimes I like something cute on my nails for a change. I'm really glad I have this polish in my collection because it's perfect for summer! I just realized that today is Wednesday so I guess this counts for Pink Wednesday as well!
