I'm Swatchin' You - Orly Glowstick

Yowza!  Watch your eyes...crazy yellow ahead!  This is Orly's Glowstick, a neon yellow.  It is quite literally highlighter yellow.  Now, I love me some Orly, but I was pretty disappointed with the formula on this one.  Details to follow.  First, the specs.

Due to this being a neon, it dries lightning fast.  Therefore, I experienced a lot of balding.  I typically try to keep my swatches to two coats, unless it really looks horrible and I have to do more to get a decent swatch for you.  You are looking at FOUR coats, people persons, and it still doesn't look as good as I would like.  I highly recommend using this neon over white.  Some neons you can get away with wearing them au naturale, but Glowstick is not one of them.  And as you can see, I dinged my ring finger.  Poo.  So, while I love the color, the formula is a pain to work with.  Sorry, Orly.

SH Double Duty and Insta-Dri for base and top.
