I know, I know, another coral nail polish! But really, who doesn’t love coral? It’s the perfect no brainer color for Spring and Summer and if you are even a casual reader of this blog you know I am obsessed.
Recently Pixi launched a polish line. Vivid Coral is the first of their polishes I have tried so I didn’t really know what to expect.
Vivid Coral is a bright neon pink with red undertones. I’m not sure I would call this coral, but it certainly is vivid! I was surprised that this was a neon and I wasn’t at the same time. It does look quite bright in the bottle but not so bright that it was obviously a neon.
For a neon the formula was quite good. This polish does have a jelly feel to it so 3 coats are definitely required to get an opaque color. There is still a slight visible nail line but it is not near as noticeable to the naked eye as it is in the swatch. And as with all neons, this dries to a semi matte finish, so a shiny top coat is definitely required!
The wear from neons is usually pretty bad. A day, or two, at the most is all you’ll get. But this polish actually wore quite well.
Overall, I do like this polish though it is not particularly unique or groundbreaking. Below the jump there is a comparison to some similar polishes in my collection, including Essie Camera and SinfulColors Pink, but I don’t have any dupes. Also in that comparison I did one nail of Vivid Coral over Ulta Snow White. Layering Vivid Coral over a white polish gives the polish an entirely different look.
One thing I do love is the bottle. They are just so cute and different! But they only contain .25 fl.oz of polish and are $8. That is on the expensive side. Until I try a normal (read non neon) polish from this line I can’t really say whether or not I think they are worth the somewhat steep price tag. Pixi is available at Target and on Pixi’s website.
