Essie always does really pretty neons and this year's neon collection is no exception. It's a little different this time around- they're jelly neons, not opaque cremes and they're not quite as fluorescent-bright as usual, but that's not a bad thing. They look like candy!
The formula on these was lovely. On the thicker side, but not gooey-thick. Just smooth, slower-flowing thick. Since these are jelly-finish polishes, they're sheer and need three coats for evenness and opacity. I still have some visible nail line at three coats. Four coats made these nearly entirely opaque, but I preferred the more translucent look of three coats.
If you prefer a more opaque look, Essie recommends layering these neons over white. Layering over white can also brighten the color, but I'm just not a fan of this technique.
