opi you're so outta lime (neon)

in 2014 opi launched a neon collection, and i purchased only you are so outta lime.

i wanted someting green and neon-y for a while, and you are so outta lime looked like exactly what i needed.

it is a medium green, somehow bright and muted at the same time. formula was a bit streaky to start with, but it evened out nicely. i decided to wear it without a white polish beneath, and i have no regrets.

a england whispering waves

gorgeous whispering waves is an addition to a england heavenly quotes collection.

whispering waves is the odd polish in a england family. it is a very vibrant color and it really stands out from adina's usual range.

i am completely in love with it though. and what's not to love! the shade is a bright turquoise, with a slight duochrome effect and a fine holo finish, one of those where it seems like the shimmer is floating on the surface.

while the formula is typically awesome, it is a stainer, so i recommend two layers of base coat.

dance legend steel panther (wow prism)

steel panther, from dance legend's wow prism collection (2014), is a polish that i keep forgetting that it annoys me.

wow prism is an awesome collection with polishes of the same theme: holographic glitter in a clear base. steel panther is a silver one in the collection. 

from the bottle, it looks like it will have a good coverage, even if you need three coats to achieve it, but it's not the case. it would be better if you wear it as a topper over a silver or grey base, but somehow i keep forgetting this and constantly attempt to wear it on its own. nevertheless, it is sparkly and fun.

zoya zuza (surf)

it's about time to show one of the zoyas so i'm presenting zuza from their surf collection for summer 2012.

well, guys at zoya are doing a great job about describing their polishes, so i'm just going to quote them. zuza is a "deep, saturated, oceanic turquoise with gold and silver metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish. a beachy, colorful, foil-like shade with the perfect balance between blue and green".

in my pictures, it is a tad more blue that in real life. it is like nothing i own, it is really interesting polish with a fantastic formula.
