My first 7 coater! Neon skittles Hidden Treasurized....

Dear Lacqueristas,

I just received my China Glaze Poolside collection. I ordered all but one because I just knew Sun Worshipper would look horrible one me.
Have a look at my skittles and guess wich one is the 7 coater????? The other nails are 4 coats each. In my opinion 7 coats is rediculous. I know that a lot of Lacqueristas prefer to use a opaque white as a base for neons but I didn't want to do that for swatching.


The answer is Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. Come on, 7 coats? I didn't even count the base coat, just the color. For these swatch I didn't use a topcoat to show you the matte finish of neons.

The formula's on these where so so, because they were so sheer. My favorite formula was Pool Party and my least favorite Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. That was one streaky mess.

Then I just HAD to swatch my newly obtained Hidden Treasure over my neon skittles:
I had to censor the smudge on my pinky

It's so difficult to capture the beauty of a flaky but my favorite was over Towel Boy Toy and Pool Party.

Why is it that yellows always seem to have awfull formulas?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

I wish a chemist would tell us why the problems with yellow because it is universal.
Is it true with car paint? Emulsion paint? Every paint?

I just did a mani with Orly "Lemonade" and it is a three coat polish which is certainly better then seven. LOL.
I'm loving all of them. :)

I like these colours!! Going straight onto my wishlist for sure.

You can tell that the yellow took 7 coats, sadly. (or at least, I could, probably by its gloopiness that is suggestive of only heaps of coats) They look even better with HT over them.

Haha I knew it would be the yellow ;D yellows always have awful formulas but I can't seem to stop buying them :|

I guessed yellow myself. It *looks* like it. I'm really liking the blue on your thumb tho.

7 coats?! I am sooo not surprised. I didn't get the yellow or the green, I knew they would require too much effort. Nice HT skittles!

I was originally planning to get the whole collection but your experience with Yellow Polka Dot Bikini has me thinking twice.
