Essie 2013 Neon Collection DJ Play That Song Swatch/Review

I'm Back!!!  I'm so excited - I missed blogging so much.  A big THANK YOU goes to everyone who sent me guest posts. They were beautiful and I sincerely appreciate it.

This is Essie "DJ Play That Song" from their 2013 Neon Collection.  I have been loving neon polish lately and when I saw this plum purple, I knew it had to be mine.

This is pretty unique to my collection.  I do have Sinful Colors "Dream On", but I think that has a bit more pink in it.  This is a straight up plum purple and I LOVE it.

I layered 2 coats of DJ Play That Song over Julep Kate (white).  I have heard that neon polish works best over a white base and I would have to agree.  The photo below was taken before I added a top coat.  It has more of a matte/satin finish and I am really liking that look.

I have been waiting for the perfect nail polish to go with this Jamberry Shield accent.  As you can see, the shield is pulling away a little bit at the ends.  Apparently, Jamberry has changed their material from the material used on this shield.  It sounds like they are thinner now, so I am excited to see the difference.  I will keep you updated.

I hope you like my comeback post:)  I'm excited to get back into the swing of things and start trying some new polish! 

Have a nice Thursday.

  14. You have such cute manicures but please get a professional manicure and take care of the cuticles and then you will be able to paint closer to the cuticle...You need to have them pushed back and trimmed!!
