Smitten Polish Summer 2015 Neon Flakes Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

I have some more neons to show you today and I’m sure you will love them! Smitten Polish is releasing a set of neon flakes for Summer 2015! I decided to show all 4 neon flakes both with a glossy top coat and a matte top coat. While I love my glossy polishes, for some reason I absolutely love flake polishes when they have a matte top coat.

These will be open for preorder for 24 hours on July 1st, so be ready!

I’m going to kick this post off with my favorite of the bunch! Ice Pop Paradise is a blurple base with iridescent blue green flakes mixed in.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Finally we have Lazy River! Lazy River is a green leaning teal jelly base packed with iridescent flakes that appear green to golden.  I had a heck of a time capturing this shade and it’s actually a touch darker in person. I used 3 thin coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

I did not experience any staining with this shade (teals usually do me in!)

All 4 of these were well done.  They all have a good amount of flakes that are well distributed throughout the polish and didn’t clump up with applying.  The base was the perfect consistency and application was easy and flawless.

Price: $11.50 Each (During Pre-Order they will be $11.00 and you can pick up the set of 4 for $42.00)

Where To Buy: Smitten Polish Shop

Pre-order Release Date: July 1st, 2015 at 2pm CST (Pre-Order only open 24 hours)

What a fabulous summer collection! They are so bright but in a good way. I don’t usually like bright orange, but I’m in love with Jar of Sunshine

I’m so glad you showed these with both the matte and regular top coat. The matte brought out the depth of the flakes. I’d never have thought of that.

Beautiful colors and 8 love a good flakie, but that price is crazy expensive. Am I the only one who won’t pay above $6 a bottle?
