China Glaze Neon & On & On Swatches & Review

China Glaze Neon & On & On Swatches & ReviewIf you’re ever feeling down in the dumps, one way to squeeze out a smile is to paint your nails with a bright neon nail polish. It never fails to work for me!

Recently, I bought 6 shades from the China Glaze Sunsational Collection – all the cremes. And I’ve been wearing a bunch lately.

The first manicure I wore was China Glaze Neon & On & On! It’s a very bright Barbie pink. Although I’m not crazy about pinks, when it comes to neon nail polish, it’s one of my favourite kinds to sport.

Key Notes

China Glaze Neon & On & On Review

Colour

Neon & On & On by China Glaze is definitely neon, and if you’re a fan of having flashy nails that you could almost flag down an airplane with, this is the shade for you.

I love wearing neons in the warmer months, but they’re just as fun to wear in the dead of winter as a shocking manicure that competes with the brightness of the snow for attention.

When you have this on your nails, strangers will be staring at your nails nearly as much as you’ll be looking at them yourself. ;) Definitely a fun shade to have in your collection.

Even though I have pink neons that are quite similar, I still had to pick this up.

Finish

Since Neon & On & On by China Glaze has neon properties, the finish is matte. In order for you to really get the neon-ness to pop, you must wear a shiny top coat. Otherwise, it will look very unsightly. More on that in the section below.

Application & Formula

Part of the reason why I was so excited to try this polish was because a lot of neons tend to be sheer, and you have to build them up to get better opacity. Since China Glaze advertised this as having a creme finish, I thought that maybe it would be more pigmented.

The first coat was extremely streaky, even though the formula was on the thicker side. With a second coat, I was able to cover the nail pretty well, but it still looked very uneven, so I went with a 3rd just to ensure I got complete opacity.

While painting my nails, I thought the formula was more difficult to work with than a usual neon polish. It’s not the most forgiving, and the finish almost had a clay-like look, which I wasn’t fond of.

If you wear this, you will absolutely need to wear a shiny top coat. Once you add it, your manicure will smooth out, the neon quality will burst through, and overall, your nails will look better. Without the top coat, your nails look uneven and very funky (but not in a good way).

Pros

  • Fun, bright neon pink
Cons

  • Looks uneven & matte without the help of a shiny top coat

Final Verdict: 8/10

I was tempted to give this polish a 7 because the formula made me want to knock off a lot of points from the Final Verdict. But, I really loved the colour with a top coat, and I wore it for several days before removing it, so that needs to count for something.

I do really like this polish because of the colour, but in terms of formula, you have to work a little harder to get the results you want. So, if you want a polish that’s fuss-free, I don’t recommend this. However, if you’re willing to put in a little more effort, this is a fun neon for the summer!

Have you tried any of the neons in the China Glaze Sunsational Collection? What colour is your favourite neon to wear? Do you wear neons all year long?

      Hey Icequeen81!

      Hahahaha, when you mention that, I can see it! Nicki does love her neon pinks, but especially when it comes to lipsticks. :) I’m a fan of bright lipsticks and nail polish.

    OMG Love it! Thanks so much for listing the creams and jellies. I think I’ll be adding all of those creams to my wishlist thank you. ;) Always a joy to find neons that don’t need white underwears.

      Hey Lizzy!

      No problem. I thought it would be very helpful to separate the finishes.

      The cremes definitely caught my eye more than the jellies, even though I usually have a soft spot for jellies.

      Haha, yeah, I also like neons that go commando. ;) Hahahaha!

      Hey Sarah!

      If you’re looking for awesome neon pink polishes, I highly recommend you try China Glaze Shocking Pink (true neon pink) and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy (neon coral pink). Those are my all-time favourite neon pinks. Can’t go wrong with them, as long as you wear a shiny top coat over them.

    It’s a fun color, but its pink nature made me skip it ;) I feel like I’m fine with the neon pinks I already have in my collection, and had heard some less than stellar reviews of the formula. I’m glad you warned us about it and that you enjoyed it when you wore it!

      Hey Another Cristina!

      Yeah, I wasn’t pleased with the formula, but the finished look with a top coat was really fun to wear. I just can’t get enough of neons!
