American Apparel ~ Neon Violet

American Apparel ~ Neon Violet
Neon purple crème

It’s sunshine here and it calls for bright colours. I looked into a drawer of the Helmer and saw this gem of a neon purple polish: “Neon Violet”. A quick search on the blog reveals that I’ve only worn it once before, and that was in November 2012. It’s time for the polish to shine again for two reasons:

Most importantly because it’s a beautiful colour but also because I’m much better at taking pictures of it now than I was almost 6 years ago!

The formula is good and fast drying. That means you have to work relatively fast to get a pretty result. I used two fast coats for my manicure :D

The stamp is from one of my favourite stamping plates: “BP-L003”. I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish “Blue Neon”.

I topped it with a layer of “Northern Lights” holo glitter topcoat from Out the Door.

This is what it all ended up looking like. The photo is taken in the sun.

Here’s a photo taken in the lightbox.

And this is “Neon Violet” alone. Two coats and no topcoat. The polish dries up to a semi matte finish.
