China Glaze Pink Plumeria: Swatch and Review

Hello gentle readers.

Today I have for you the second polish from the Summer Neon Collection that I purchased. Pink Plumeria. I just love that name. It rolls off of my tongue, it swims through my mind. The name is smooth. The name tickles my fancy. Tickles. Pink.

My mind is a terrible place in which to waste time.

So let's not, shall we?

China Glaze Pink Plumeria is more neon than Ride the Waves. This polish has more neon type pigment and has that neon fluorescent effect. It is also pink. A warm, soft, almost leaning coral pink. With shimmer. Lots of beautiful, subtle shimmer. This is an unusual and very pretty pink neon polish. If you like pink, if you like shimmer and you are glomming on the whole neon thing, this Summer you might need to get this one.

Okay, 'nuff of this raggle baggle. I know what you really want.




 I used Autocorrect while cropping and sharpening these photographs in order to show some of that lovely glow-y neon effect.

This is yet some more China Glaze neon yummy stuff. The formula is downright decent and application didn't give me too much trouble. It was a teensy bit streaky on the first coat but otherwise... It was great. I needed three coats for full opacity and like most neons I have met, dries satin matte. Top coat brings out the shine and the shimmah and makes this beauty glow and live. So use top coat.

This is one of my rare right hand swatches. I am slowly working on my swatching on my dominant hand technique. I want to become a Two Handed Swatcher of Death, like my swatch idol, Scrangie. I am sure that you are all already following Scrangie but if not, you can find her blog and her fabulous swatches here. And if you click over, you see that Nars Storm Bird polish she has on feature, right now. I waaaaant that polish! If for no other reason, that fabulous name. Oh, yeah. Sometimes I buy a polish for it's name. Don't judge me and don't even try to tell me that you never have. I won't believe you.

Anywhoozle. China Glaze Pink Plumeria. Pretty. Neon. Shimmer. Yeah. This is out, now and should be available where you find China Glaze. I would suggest Amazon, I saw it there, recently. (No, I am not affiliated, I am not pimping for them, I just buy a lot of polish from there. ;))

Thank you so much for popping in and reading. I have something fun brewing in my head. Something that I think my readers are going to enjoy. I just need to flesh out how to make it work and pick up the prizes. And that is all I will say about that. For now.

Oh yeah, have a great day and may your polish never bubble.
