Summer's Coming Early

*Some of the products in this post were received as a gift. As always all opinions are my own. For more info you can view my disclosure policy here.*

Is anyone else over winter yet? That's assuming you are in an area where you actually get winter-type weather (looking at you Cali) lol. I've said a million times before but it bears repeating: I hate cold weather, I turn into a big, whiny baby. I needed something to perk me up and neon was the best thing, well next to a tropical vacation that is. hehe

 I also decided that I needed to use my old buddy striping tape to go along with my neons. I swear I have about 30 rolls and it took me forever to just found one. I knew I should have put them on the tape dispenser a few months ago when I was going to.

I used a brand called Simply Sweet that my wife got me sometime last year for this look. I've never seen this brand before and there's no other info on the box or bottles :( Of course they don't have names either. BOO

The formula on them were pretty good except for the green. It's sorta a thick jelly which makes it a little tough to work with. I had to use two coats for that nail and it still looked kinda funky irl. I would have thought the yellow would be the sheerest but I only needed one coat for it.

I took this photo using the daylight setting on my camera as it gets closer to the actual color of the green but it makes my skin look angry. And yes the orange really is that bright lol
I really enjoyed this, so much so that I wore it about four days. It sorta reminded me of the striped bubble gum with the zebra on it. Boy was that stuff good, I just wish the flavor had lasted a little longer lol.

What do you ladies think? Anyone else tired of all this cold weather? Or are you suffering through the heat and wishing for some cooler temps? Let me know. As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)

    Love this! I hate the cold weather so much too. It's freezing here over night but still reasonably mild during the day. It will only get folder in the next 4 weeks tho :(. Wearing neon in winter is a fab idea. Totally shouldn't save them as summer only polishes. Love the daylight setting on your camera too xx

  4. These colors are freaking awesome! We have been suffering through nasty summer heat lately, but I still want these colors. So bright and juicy.

  5. I enjoyed them too. Maybe we can split all that heat so it's comfortable for us both? lol :)
