~♥~ Billie "Pink Pansy" ~♥~

Wow, brightness. That's all I can say about this one. This neon matte took 3 coats to get to opaque, this dries sooo fast, too fast. I think that is the only drawback for this polish. After doing dishes, tidying up, washing my hands a million times etc, only 1 tiny little chip on my index.
As for color, this is not the pretty, neon pink that other polish Co's have for their spring/ summer line up, this is the 1960's - 1970's psychedelic polyester shirt neon pink. Or, glow in the dark pink. This looks very much like that spray paint that construction companies mark the ground with before they start digging. Ironically this is called "Pink Pansy"....... there is nothing "pansy-ish" about this retina burning color. I have not seen any polish swatched , or even anything on Google images that is this bright. I'm not bragging= I would never ever wear this in public, hopefully I can tone it down to a more earthly Day-Glo pink, instead of this.

I love the "images" of what this color reminds you of. The dancer's shoe just made me laugh so hard. I could see this color glow in the "outside,shade" pics!! That's super bright!!

Oh! I had no idea that these tend to dry matte! I'm going to have to look into more of these colours :)
(bought platinum, but only swatched it in a rush...)
thanks for sharing :)

This pink seems like a really "glow in the dark" color and one of those "happy" colors that make me like you.....don't know if I had the guts to wear it purple one seems more "toned down", isn't it ?

~♥~ Thank you for your comments ~♥~

~ Velvet - Ha ha; that shoe made me laugh too, that's gonna be my new FB pic. I barely found any glow-in-the-dark pink photos on google, these were the best i rounded up:)

~ Rasilla - you actually found this brand somewhere ? neat. I have searched high and low and sent a letter their the HQ to find out more about them.

~ tuli- I could only wear this for 3 hours! Yes the purple one is toned down.

I am glad that it is easy to see the 'glow-in-the-dark' like-ness of this. I thought that maybe a better description should be day-glo?

This will be one of those 'toe-nails' only polishes.
