Today I’d like to introduce you to new nail polish collection, the Maybelline New York Color Show Bleached Neon Nail Collection*; 
What They Say:
The chip free formula with high-tech polymers helps enhance wear and usage. The easy to use brush makes application a breeze and leaves your nails in tip top shape! Formaldehyde, DBP and Toluene free.
RRP: $5.95 (7ml) – Available from Priceline, supermarkets, variety stores and select supermarkets from October to December 2014 only
What I Say:
This new Bleached Neon Nail Collection combines neon pigments in an opaque formula that dilutes the colour to gorgeous pastel shades. And timing couldn’t be any better. With the spring sun already kissing our cheeks, and shops promoting lighter clothes in spring colours, these polishes fit the season perfectly.
I remember when neons were last a hit – sometime in the 80s, and at the stage I wore it. A lot. Everything from tops, pants, to lipsticks. You name it, I wore. These days I am a little more conservative, so I am pleased that these nail polishes offer more subtle neons. They are bright, yet pastel at the same time, if that makes sense. So much more wearable than bright neons. And such a refreshing change from the usual standard pastel shades. 
I know that in Europe a larger range of colours were launched, but unfortunately here in Australia, we were limited to four shades;
  • Sun Flare – a Pastel Peachy-Orange
  • Coral Heat – a Pastel Coral Pink
  • Tropink – Pastel Pink
  • Chic Chartreuse – A Pastel Lime
L-R: Sunflare, Coral Heat, Tropink and Chic Chartreuse
I love all the colours, but have to say that the Coral Heat and Chic Chartreuse would be my two favourites.
The polishes have a creamy finish with a nice glossiness without any sparkle or shimmer which I really like. The first coat is quite sheer, and you think you’ll have to apply countless coats for a solid finish, but already after the second coat you have a nice colour.
L-R: Sunflare, Coral Heat, Tropink and Chic Chartreuse
The polish is easy to apply evenly and streak free, and it dries quickly. With a topcoat I manage to get about 3+ wear from the polish, which personally I think is OK – also because I wash my hands a lot, with two large dogs living inside, and countless nappy changes on my little boy during the day, plus not forgetting his bath every night! But I think you can easily extend the wear by using a base coat first, and by re-applying a top coat on day two!
I also think that the wear is reasonable considering the polishes are so affordable. If you are keen on getting your hands on some of these Bleached Neon Shades, you better hurry up as the colours are limited edition.
