Essie Neons 2013: Bouncer, It's Me!

Another spring, another Essie Neon collection. Up first: Bouncer, It's Me!

I wish I could say I was impressed with something about this polish, but there really isn't anything jumping out at me about it. Is it a very nice blue? Yes, in a Fourth of July sort of way. But it does seem quite costume-y, and application was a seriously struggle. In the pictures, I'm wearing two coats of Blanc, which is its own struggle to apply, and two coats of the neon shade. In spite of that, I still couldn't get it to come out quite even, and it took forever to dry. As in, woke up with half the polish having slid off my thumb forever to dry.

I'll have to give it another try without the white basecoat to see how it looks, but I definitely see this being more of a novelty color in my collection rather than a fun summer treat.
