I know what you’re thinking. Neon in October Alli? Really? I know! It seems a bit ridiculous but I can’t seem to shake my animal print + neon obsession. It’s bad. So of course when I was rocking a leopard print dress the other day I convinced myself that one last neon manicure was completely acceptable for the year. I figured if Carly Rae Jepson can pull of a neon green manicure with a sequined dress I can certainly pull one off in October!
Anyway. Wicked! is a super bright yellow based green neon. I mean…REALLY bright! It’s basically Wet n Wild Nerd Alert: Screech without the shimmer.
On its own the formula doesn’t really work. It has a bit of a jelly feel to it and after applying three coats I quickly decided over white was the way to go. I applied 2 coats of Ulta Snow White and topped that with 2 coats of Wicked! and I had myself a neon green manicure.
I really loved this manicure. Granted it’s completely inappropriate for the season but it was such a nice change from all the dark colors I’ve been wearing lately.
This is only the second polish from the petites line that I’ve tried and I must say I’m a fan. The other polish I have is You Go Girl! which is also a neon so hopefully soon I’ll try a non neon petites polish!
Petites polishes are sold at Rite Aid as well as on the CQ cosmetics website and retail for $3. Definitely a great cheap thrill!
Make sure to check below the jump for swatches of Wicked over white. It’s like an entirely different polish!
