Shines park Polish 80s Neon Collection Swatch and Review

No comments

Hi all! Fair warning before I get started, this post will be very picture heavy! Today I will be reviewing and swatching the new, re-formulated 80s Neons collection from Shinespark Polish that are available for purchase here. I was completely blown away by all 8 of the polishes and I can’t wait to share them with you! I did purchase these with my own money however Molly from Shinespark did upgrade my order from minis to full sized polishes. I will be swatching these without a white basecoat, they do dry down to a shimmer matte finish so I also topped either all with KB Shimmer’s “clearly On Top.” Let’s get started.

Let’s begin with the yellow, it is named “Yuppie Yellow.” It has a great, smooth, creamy formula and was opaque in 3 coats on my natural nail. It is a classic and bright primary yellow. It does have a slight tint of shimmer and will dry down to a semi matte finish. In these photographs it is topped with one coat of KB Shimmer’s “Clearly On Top.”

Next up is the orange of the collection, “Outrageous Orange.” It’s a beautifully, light orange that leans a bit to the “creamsicle” side. This polish starts off a little bit sheer but builds up nicely. I also noticed a little bit of pigment that hadn’t gotten completely mixed in but it didn’t affect the finish, easy of application, or final result. This is 3 coats on my natural nail.

Next up in the 80s Neon collection is the green named “Glam Green.” It shows up a little more honeydew on camera than it is in person, it is a true lime green. This is also one of those polishes that will give you an instant tan and glows in the sunset. I had a problem getting this color accurate and for my camera to want to flash. “Turn down for what?” My camera, apparently, for these neons! I believe this polish is one of my favorites from Shinespark Polish! Application was very easy, I am showing it here in 3 coats on my natural nail.

Next up is the neon red of the collection, “Radical Red.” I found it to be a peachy toned red that leans a bit into orange territory. A very unique and bright polish with another super easy formula. This one only took 2 coats to be opaque.

The next polish is the pink of the collection, this is “Pumped Pink.” This is another of my favorites because it’s such a bright, bubblegum, barbie pink! This one does a great job of showcasing the shimmer that is in each of the polishes of the 80s Neon collection. It only took 2 coats for Pumped Pink to be opaque.

Next I have the purple of the collection, this is called “Psych’d Purple.” It is a fun, bright, orchid purple that leans into being pinky toned. This one only took 2 coats to be opaque as well, just a great creamy formula!

The teal in the collection is a brand new color made for the re-release, it is named “Totally Teal.” I feel like this polish may be a little more on the sheer side however it was completely opaque in 3 coats and it also shows off the shimmer beautifully!

Lastly we have the blue of the collection, this is “Bouncin’ Blue.” This is a gorgeous light sky blue that just barely hints at some periwinkle in it! I found this to be by far the greatest in terms of formula, it was almost completely opaque for me in 1 coat. I did still have a hint of a nail line so I rounded it out with 2.

So all in all I think this is an amazing neon collection, I found them to be true neons that didn’t need the help of a white basecoat. If you would like to see the live swatches of all of these polishes you can head over to my youtube channel at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xaspQlEXk8E. These polishes are available on http://www.shinesparkpolish.com in both mini (5 mL) or full size (15 mL) and are available individually. I will be testing out how well these watermarble so stay tuned for that review coming up soon! Thanks so much guys, see you next time!
