You’re seeing way more pink nail polish on Swatch And Learn than ever before – it’s a record!
Although my true love is purple and my true lust is green, neon pink nail polish is what makes me weak in the knees like SWV. And as we’re approaching the summer, I crave neons like a juicy, grilled steak.
China Glaze Shocking Pink is a polish I recently purchased, but it’s an old colour. If you don’t already have a neon-pink polish, I highly recommend this one.
When I wore this manicure last week, a bunch of people at work were asking me about the colour. 🙂 This is certainly a shade that attracts a lot of attention.

China Glaze Shocking Pink Review
Shocking Pink by China Glaze is a neon bubblegum pink that I feel would look good on a lot of different skin tones. Although I often have trouble pulling off pinks, I felt like this one was flattering.
It’s bright, girly, and happy! 🙂
Shocking Pink is more of a light pink than the reddish-pink Pool Party. And Shocking Pink is a pure pink, unlike the coral-pink Flip Flop Fantasy.
This is a neon creme polish, so the finish is slightly matte. I strongly urge you to use a glossy top coat to bring out the true beauty of this polish.
The interesting thing about shocking pink is that while it doesn’t dry to a glossy finish, it isn’t as matte as most other neon polishes I’ve tried.
Application & Formula
The formula of Shocking Pink by China Glaze was wonderful! Normally you have to build up neons, but this one had a very opaque formula. With just 2 coats, I had full opacity. And the formula wasn’t thin. It was very easy to control, too.
Final Verdict: 10/10
Other than a streaky, sheer yellow one I tried, all the neon nail polishes I’ve worn have always been huge hits with me. There’s just something so fun about wearing a lacquer that’s so punchy.
What is the flashiest nail polish you own? Have you come across any non-streaky neon-yellow polishes? How’s your Monday going?
