China Glaze Pink Plumeria Summer 2012 Neon

This is my new favorite! Ohhhh it's so pretty. The whole China Glaze summer 2012 neon collection is gorgeous, but I made sure I limited myself to two. Must control the exponential growth of my stash!

I have found my perfect neon polish, finally. The other ones that I've tried have had super sucky formulas, and just not worked with my skintone. However, Pink Plumeria is just a slice of summery heaven. The formula on this one is a bit thick and gummy, but I made it behave with a little bit of thinner. This color is definitely a new take on a neon, it's a pastel leaning neon! In the bottle it looks like a corally pink with light golden shimmer, and on the nail it just glows!

Swatches I've seen online tend to make this color look really light, but at least on my skintone it had a lot more pow to it. I messed with the color settings to get these to look more true to life. Shown here I've done three coats and  like most neons, it dries matte, so a coat of of Posh shined it right up. One thing to note, this took foreeeever to dry and was super denty for hours.

And here I did a Konad on top with China Glaze Electric Beat.


  1. Noooo! Why is is some of CG's super awesome colors take forever to dry?! Maybe it's all of them and I just dont have enough CG in my stash?

  2. This is really cute! Nice stamping!
