This is another new Pixi polish for Summer 2013. I was really impressed with Summer Sunset (I have it on my toes right now!) so I was looking forward to Fluoro Flamingo. In the bottle I thought perhaps it was a neon which worried me a bit. When I was applying it I kept waiting for it to dry to that strange semi matte finish but I am happy to report that never happened!
Fluoro Flamingo is a very, VERY bright cool pink creme. I really was shocked this wasn’t a neon. It’s so bright it sort of freaked out my camera!
Application was fine. I used three coats in my swatches though if my nails were their normal length I probably would have gotten away with two. I haven’t had time recently to file my nails and they have gotten (too) long.
Regarding the name…I googled “fluoro” and it’s a prefix that is used to indicate something is fluorescent. Quite appropriate for this nail polish.
There are additional swatches below the jump. Also, if you have yet to try Pixi (or you just want to expand your collection…) it is a beauty event on Hautelook today. The polishes are $3 which is quite the deal considering they are $8 at Target or on the Pixi website. If you’re having a hard time deciding check out the other Pixi polishes we have reviewed here.
