The 12 Days of Kleancolor Day 4 - Neon Orange

Hi!

It's really dull and overcast here today, so I immediately knew which of the remaining Kleancolors I wanted to swatch today. Neon Orange does exactly what it says on the tin - it's bright, it's orange, and it's most definitely neon in colour. It doesn't really have that semi-matte/rubber finish that other neons have, but it did take a while to dry.



This is not usually a colour I'd go for, I'm all about the blues, purples & blacks, but I'm glad  I got this one (my 7-year old son picked it online, orange is his favourite colour) because it's cheery and really summery. It will also make a great base for some crackle/croc polish during the winter. Here it is with 3 coats:

Outside, no flash, overcast

I used Essence 'Gold Fever' (which looks exactly like a microglitter version of China Glaze 'Electrify' to me) on an accent nail, I think they work well together:

I'm glad that this one is a part of my stash, I can do a lot with it! Also - the smell wasn't as strong with this one.

Are you a fan of orange polish?

  1. It looks very similar to China Glaze Papaya Punch but I am guessing it's more neon? Gorgeous anyway! I may get this as I've been wanting to get a few neons :D x

    1. I haven't seen Papaya Punch in reality but from the swatches it is quite similar! This is SO bright though, it's almost luminous! x

  4. Very good for using under a crackle or nail art :) I dont have this one but have a similar orange and its not usually my sort of thing but certainly can pop!
