It's the first weekend of summer! I decided to go BRIGHT to celebrate. I chose Sun-Kissed from the China Glaze Summer Neons Collection. If ever there were a color that screamed summer, this highlighter yellow would be it. It has some green undertones to it and a beautiful and subtle shimmer. The shimmer for me is what drew me to this color. The formula was super easy to work with and it dried quickly. I did 2 coats and topped with Seche Vite. I took all photos in direct summer sunlight ;-).


My only complaint about the color is that I think I might be a bit to fair-skinned to pull it off. It gave me lobster hand. It's certainly an appropriate shade for a summer neon though.

The name of this polish made me feel compelled to share this silly e-card I came across on Pintrest. Summer is the time for tanning, but beware of the fake'n'bake oompa loompa!

Thanks for popping in!


  1. These highlighter yellow colors are so fascinating to me, and I love looking at them. But I'm not sure I could pull it off at all. And yes, TOTALLY beware of the oompaloompa. I personally plan to remain lily white all summer. ;)

    1. I don't think I am pulling it off, but it really is fun to stare at something THAT bright on my nails. My husband suggest trying to black crackle over it so I just might do that.
