I'm back after a long break with another collection from Night Owl Lacquer! The Light & Bright collection is the biggest release yet with six light neon cremes and four special effect toppers, so get ready for a pic heavy post my friends! These bright and happy colors are exactly what we're all ready to put on our nails, and the uplifting names are gonna get you feeling all sorts of sunshiney!
Imagine is a light neon yellow, that perfect highlightery goodness that always looks like it's glowing! I have worked with plenty of neons before and yellows can be streaky and goopy, but this had a beautiful formula that was perfectly opaque in two easy coats. Looove. Are you tired of hearing that yet? Alright, every single one of these cremes went on like a dream in only two coats, we've got that out of the way!
Wish is a light neon green creme that leans so much more minty than my swatches were able to show! It definitely freaked out my camera, haha. This perfect spring shade reminds me of pistachio or mint ice cream, and it's totally elicited a craving out of me!
Dream is a light neon blue creme that reminds me of the sky on a perfect day, or a beautiful robin's egg blue on neon! This is another shade I can't wait to wear more of!
Believe is a light neon purple creme and I absolutely adore bright, saturated lavender tones like this! Just wait until you see this beauty with one of the toppers. Just you wait!
Persist is a light neon pink creme that makes me think of us gals! Nevertheless we persisted! This eye-searing pink is absolutely epic and is not to be ignored!
Inspire is going to do just that when it comes to my outfits this summer. I am genuinely addicted to wearing bright corals in the summer and this neon is super sizzly. I hope I've managed to show a bit of that despite this shade completely confusing my camera, haha. Neons...That's the last of the creams, but I have layered the first topper over Inspire and I think it's absolutely perfect, so keep scrolling!
Sunshine is full of gold galaxy holo glitters, and I've shown it here with just one coat. I love a topper that can adequately cover in a single coat, that way I don't have to bulk up my mani! This one is just so warm and sparkly!
Moonlight is loaded with silver galaxy holo glitters, and once again covers like a dream in a single coat while still letting that base color shine through. It's perfect to add a little (or a lot) of magic to your neons, or anything else you have for that matter!
How weird and wonderful is this? Light Up The Shadows is a super unique mix of various sizes of matte black & white glitter and opalescent glitters. Again this is just one coat; I didn't have to fuss much with the glitter placement, but alas I am picky so I'm sure I did a little anyway, haha. Anyhow, this one reminds me of sparkly graffiti, while the name really warms my heart!
Last but possibly my favorite of the toppers is It's All Rainbows & Unicorns, a total stunner packed full of various sizes of crystal rainbow shifting flakies. This one is going to look dramatically different depending on the base and I'm so excited to play with it more!
What do you guys think? I am excited for my first complete set of neons, I almost want to try water marbling now! But really, who am I kidding? I'll stick to my stamping, haha! Since I am a day late getting this up, this collection is currently available on the Night Owl Lacquer site, and my promo code BHN10 is always there for you guys to use! The whole shebang will run you an incredibly reasonable $60, with the cream collection being offered separately for $36, and the toppers at $24. Math is hard but that's only $6 per polish you guys; and if you only want one or two shades, like that crazy gorgeous Believe/It's All Rainbows & Unicorns combo, everything is available individually as well.
It's been so much fun connecting with you guys again! Oh, and if you're wondering where my nail art is, don't fret, check back tomorrow! I thought it would be a great idea to make the blog a bit more user friendly with a filtering function that would allow you to see content that's more relevant to you. If you follow for the nail art, you'll be able to pull up just that; and if you are excited about an upcoming launch you'll be able to filter for swatches and PR. Hope that sounds good to you, I'll be back soon with more to share. Love you, dolls! I mean it!
