I think this is the perfect yellow-green neon colour that's so trendy right now. Formula is excellent as well, not streaky, gives nice opaque coverage in 2-3 coats. Wears well with the Seche Vite top coat.
I was weary to purchase this shade but have been wanting a bright yellow-green for a while. I haven't purchased any until now because they all come across as super neon yellow. This polish is not neon yellow. It is lime-y and bright yellow at the same time. A great colour. I disagree with the reviewer who said that it doesn't flatter her pale skin tone. I have no tan yet this year and it looks great on. Am sure it will look completely different though with a tan. Probably much more flashy!!! The formula is wonderful and I used OPI natural nail base coat followed by two coats of colour and topped with Seche Vite. This polish lasted through my work this weekend and withstood hot water temps and constant hand-washing. Highly recommended.
I own quite a few nail polish bottles and I don't think I've seen a color like this one. It's so unique! Too bad I have fair skin, otherwise this color would look a lot better on my nails. But I highly recommend this polish for the unique color.
