Glisten & Glow Summer Livin' Swatches

Press Sample

Summer is upon us - especially here in Las Vegas, where temperatures are blazing well past 100° - in fact, they're set to reach 113° tomorrow! What goes perfectly with summer? NEONS! They're the perfect summer polish - they even manage to make ghostly pale girls like me look much tanner than we actually are! For this year's summer collection, Jill came up with some killer neons- they're fairly opaque, are hella bright even without a white base, and even stamp! Read on to see swatches of this new collection from Glisten & Glow!

Watermelon & Waterslides

Bright neon pink

What's more refreshing than cold watermelon on a hot summer day? This bright pink screams summer!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque

Slushies & Suntans

Bright neon orange

Orange you glad I didn't say banana? Wait, what? Who knows, I'm just too distracted by this eye-searing orange neon creme to think straight!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque

Flip Flops & Fireworks

Bright neon yellow

Yellows are always a struggle, and while this one is good, it's still the toughest of the bunch, and requires 3 coats to help disguise a visible nail line. It's pretty damn bright though, so totally worth it. If you don't want to do three coats, you can always put a coat of Wedding Gown White underneath it to take care of that pesky VNL and really make that yellow pop!

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Finish: Creme, 3 coats to be opaque

BBQs & Board Games

Bright neon green

Like liquid lime popsicles melting over your nails, this bright neon green is summer minus the popsicle sticks.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque

Roadtrips & Rollercoasters

Bright neon purple

This one is a little hard to describe, but it is by far the most opaque of the bunch! It's not quite purple, and not fully a pink either, so it lies somewhere in limbo between them in all its neon glory. I'm surprised to admit it, but I think it's my favorite of the bunch, and perfect for nail art!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque
