Color Club Wham! Pow!

I am loving pretty pale spring colors, but let's not forget the brights and neons!! Perfect for summer, intense brights and retina-scorching neons in all sorts of amazing colors, please!! Color Club's POPtastic, one of three collections they released for spring 2010, delivers these bright flourescent colors and then some.

I LOVE this collection! The colors literally POP right off your fingernails....but unfortunately, they tend to pop off my camera lens, which cannot accurate capture the intensity and color of neons.

I'll start with the accurately named "Wham! Pow!" because this highlighter orange does show up fairly accurately in my pictures. tt's basically an intense, super-bright bold orange neon. SUCH FUN!

In the sunlight:

You know it's neon when it glows this bright in the dark for a picture!! This is outdoors but in the shade.

Like many neons, this polish is rather sheer and shows visible nail line after 2 or 3 coats. I decided to experiment with a fairly opaque white polish on my index finger to compare. I was very pleased with the nail line! But looking at my pictures, I realize that the color is altered to a lighter color. Phooey! I don't mind the different color, but capturing the true color but using an undercoat to cover the nail line would be the ideal. Suggestions and tips welcome, please!

Index finger with the white and ring finger with just Wham! Pow! (I tried black on the middle finger, and that did NOT work at ALL! So I am refraining from showing it).

I had some spillage of the white polish into the side of my nail, there, so it looks a bit messy, begging everyone's pardon!

The first pic of the white undercoated index finger is in shade, and the second one is in the sun. You can definitely see the difference. If you want a perfect WHAM! POW! neon orange, however, Wham! Pow! from Color Club certainly fills the bill.
