I have been so desperate for this collection since I saw the promo stuff. The whole collection just screams summertime and we here in the UK are just desperate for that now.
I was being properly cheeky when I bought these polishes. I was checking my local Boots’ Models Own stand to see if the Ice Neon collection had arrived yet and noticed that there was a shop assistant rifling through the drawer beneath the stand so I thought I’d be nosy and look over her shoulder, and low and behold they were in the drawer! I asked if they were being put out and she said that they weren’t being displayed until next week and I was gutted! I thought I would be cheeky though and ask if I would be able to buy them early and she said I could if they ran through the till ok. I got her to check and they did! So as they were on 3 for 2, I bought all five and another polish (soon to be reviewed) for £20! Bargain.
Anyway, onto the polishes.
Toxic Apple is the most amazing bright green. I mean seriously. It is like highlighter green. I couldn’t think of anything in my wardrobe that it would go with, but I don’t care. It’s awesome. I might say though – these polishes are a bit thin, so I started each of these manicures with a base of Barry M Matt White.
Luis Lemon, like Toxic Apple, has a highlighter quality. It is an amazing colour and would great for a raving night out. This is definitely the brightest of all the polishes in this collection.
Pink Punch is more of a coral than a pink which I really like. I can totally see myself wearing this colour on my honeymoon while lying by a pool in the sun. I actually think I might have a bikini that will match!
Bubblegum is the real pink of this collection. It is full on neon pink. This is the kind of colour I imagine 8 year old girls to love, and it really makes you spend far too much time staring at your nails reminiscing youth. I’ve never been much of a pink lover, but this is quite funky.
I’m not sure I would call Pukka Purple a neon, but it is a bright purple. This is probably my favourite out of this collection as it is the one I am most likely to wear. Also, I have dark purples and lilacs, but no purples this colour. Woop!
