So when Red Carpet Manicure Announced their Escape To Paradise collection for summer 2016, and I saw six brand new neon shades I was absolutely beyond eager to try them all out.
First up from the Collection is Until The Sun Sets a stunning coral neon gel polish.
|5 days of wear and still as vibrant as day 1|
Neon Polish is extremely hard to photograph, and from all these photos I think the first one above is the most colour accurate shot I could get.
Until The Sun Sets is a bright but very wearable neon coral shade, with a creme finish, that maintains its vibrant shade and insane level of shine for the duration of the manicure. (mine lasted 14 days, with no chips I only had to remove the polish because of insane regrowth at the cuticle).
Up until now my go to neon coral shade has been China Glaze Flip Flop fantasy (see below)
Flip Flop Fantasy is probably a tiny bit more vibrant than Until the Sun Sets, but it has very little staying power even when compared to regular polish. I'd usually go maybe two days without some chips, and the colour was very sheer so took many coats or a layer of white polish underneath to reach full opacity.
Back to Until The Sun Sets. I did Have to apply three coats to reach full opacity with this shade, but considering the finish and duration of wear offered by gel polish this is no problem at all!
As with all gel shades its very important to keep coats very thin and resist the temptation to apply thicker coats as they simply won't cure as well.
Here's a few more photos of this awesome polish:
I absolutely love Until The Sun Sets. It's an absolute must have for a summer holiday manicure. I'm seriously looking forward to trying out other shades from this collection. Stay posted for more.
