Have you heard of Lime Crime? You may know them from their bright and beautiful ads featuring women with neon lips, hair, eye shadow, and nails. Just Google "Lime Crime" and you'll see what I mean. I love their whole look - from their ads, to their packaging, to their website - it just draws me in. Of course, I had to try their nail polish. The polishes I wanted were out-of-stock for quite a while, but you better believe I was stalking their site in order to catch the re-stock. Once they re-stocked, I limited myself to two (so hard). Of course, I had to get the green one (Pastelchio) and I decided on this creamy neon peachy orange - Peaches <3 Cream.
I couldn't believe how hard this polish was to photograph. It is described on the Lime Crime site as a neon peach, so that would explain why. Neons are my worst enemy when it comes to getting a true-to-color picture. Just look at these pics...none of them are the same - they look like three different nail polishes:(
Even though neon polishes are my enemy for blogging, they are my best friend on the nails.
Formula wise, Peaches <3 Cream was pretty thick and a little tricky to work with. The thickness makes this polish completely opaque in two coats, which is good. Unlike most neon polishes, the formula of Peaches <3 Cream is creamy. You don't have to use a white base, and it doesn't end up matte. These pictures don't do this polish justice. I checked for other swatches online and it looks like lots of people have issues with capturing the neon-ness. It's soooo bright, bold, and beautiful! An added bonus, it makes me look tan.
Lime Crime polishes are very affordable at $5.99/bottle. I love all of the colors and hope to collect them all at some point. I think Lavendairy will be my next purchase.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I plan to plant some flowers now that it's warm and sunny.
