L'Oreal Color Riche Neon Pop Nail Polishes

With neons being so in for accessories, clothes and shoes these days, L'Oreal have joined the neon brigade by introducing a selection of 5 Color Riche Neon Pop Nail Polishes. They are 5ml mini bottles and retail for £4.99 each. I love the sleek packaging and the dinky size means they are perfect to take away on a holiday. The colour selection is varied as well so there's something for everyone. 

I like how they apply so opaque and don't really need another quote unless you're striving for perfection here. Besides the pink one, all of them are equally well pigmented. The pink one's not bad it just needs two quotes to look opaque. I like how they dry quickly and do not need a top coat to last long. They also have a lovely glossy finish to them albeit not overtly glossy. I think a demi matte finish works well for neons. The gloss like finish in fact would just take away attention from the pop of colour. 

Coming to my favourite one from them all, Wasabi Hint. What a name and what a colour. It's the most stunning green I've seen in years. It's almost like a pistachio shade minus any milkiness that would usually accompany it. It's one of the shades you'd see in Dulux paints and wish a brand created a nail varnish out of it. Well, here we have it! 
The pink one here is called Acid Watermelon. Again a stunning name. Not so stunning colour as it's been done before and neither is the pigmentation to die for. None the less, quite a refreshing pink if you want something bright yet not intimidating. It's got a nice neutral undertone to it hence would flatter a lot of skintones in my opinion. Try out the testers in store!
Banana Pop is one of my favourite shades too. I just wish it was more neon as it's actually quite a literal primary yellow colour. Having said that, it's neutralness makes it easier to wear. It is a bright yellow so if you're looking for something eye catching and bold, this would be it. One of the most opaque shades from the range, it would look great for a festival or at the beach.
Snow in Megeve is hands down the best white nail paint from my collection. It's quite a true, paper white. No hint of yellow or beige in it at all. Quite a cool toned, blue white hence is easier to sport. I have been loving clean white nails this Summer and they are a huge trend too so if you're looking to replicate the chic yet subtle trend, this is what you need in your life. It's super opaque which is usually rare with whites and works well with French manicures too.
Get them now!

I'm interested to see how long it'll last without chips. I've noticed all my Essie and China Glaze neons chip within a day or two whereas my normal colors last me a week without chips!
