Nina Ultra Pro Punki Purple

Nina Ultra Pro Punki Purple

Confession: I am TERRIFIED of neons. I am pale. I cannot get a tan (fake or otherwise). So the idea of using a neon seemed rather ridiculous to me. Even last summer when Essie came out with their neon collection I didn’t crack. But then when I was at Sally Beauty Supply the other day I spotted this polish. It’s a purple neon, so it’s quite muted compared to the yellow, orange and pink neons of the world. And it was only $3.29, so I figured why not give it a try.

This is a neon, so the formula was rather thin and it dried to a somewhat matte finish. A top coat is definitely required! Even though it is a thin formula, I only needed 2 coats. The first coat was extremely streaky, but the second coat evened out quite well.

I actually really like this color. It’s a purple I didn’t have in my collection, and I’m glad I finally tried a neon polish. The only problem I have with this polish is the wear. Even with a base coat and my Essie Good to Go top coat, this chipped within a day. Even so, this will be a great polish for a night out during the Summer months.
