Woohoo Friday! Maybe some of you will partake if some lime flavored refreshment this weekend to help you let loose?? I know when I was thinking of the name of this polish I though about comedian Mitch Hedberg. Now if you haven’t heard of Mitch Hedberg, he is hilarious but unfortunately passed away a few years ago. But still, I was totally reminded of this joke

Anyway, today’s polish is relatively simple! I started with about half a bottle of TKB Luster Base. I then added about ¼ of a bottle’s worth of What a Shock! a neon green from the 2009 Color Club Electro Candy Summer Collection. I then followed it up by adding one medium sized scoop of Wonder Beauty Product’s Prismatic Platinum Illusion Powder (which if you remember form previous posts, is a dupe for Spectraflair). What was created was an awesome neon green holo that was nearly impossible to photograph!
I’m starting to think that my light box may not play nice with holos (which is why all photos for this post were taken in full sunlight), does anybody else have that problem? Anyway, swatches show two coats and given the neon of the base and the tendency for neon’s to dry matte, I did add one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry on top. I think this polish is great to welcome the warmer weather! I had no difficulty controlling the formula and application was smooth!
I hope you enjoyed lime sorbet (or I hope that you will enjoy your future lime refreshment!). I will see you back next week for more nail polish creations! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
