HOT Nail Colors for the Summer! (Forever 21 Love & Beauty Hot Pink & Orange)

Forever 21 Love & Beauty Nail Polish in the shades Hot Pink and Orange
Left: Hot Pink, Right: Orange.
I picked up these polishes the other day at Forever 21, thinking they would be perfect for the summer. I didn't realize they were both neon until I got home and swatched them, but I'm not at all disappointed with either one. I think everyone needs a couple of neon shades in their nail polish collection, and I was due for a new bottle of hot pink. I really love Orange, and I think it's a really awesome coral/orange shade that is perfect for the current "orange" nail and lips trend.

As for the formula of these, they are pretty much like any other neon polish. The consistency isn't too thick or thin and it's easy to work with. Application wasn't streaky what-so-ever, and the result is very smooth nails. On my hand swatches, I used two coats and the color was completely opaque. The finish is slightly matte, like most neon polishes, so a top coat is recommended!

I gave myself a pedicure last night and used Orange, and I'm loving it! For some reason, I can't get my nail polish to last long on my toes. Especially my big toes. I think its because I have long toes and my big toe gets crushed in my shoes, damaging my nail. So I tried to make it "fool proof" and applied two coats of Seche Base Coat, 1 coat of Orange polish, 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat, 1 coat of Orange polish & 1 more coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat. Hopefully the long process with pay off!

Love & Beauty Nail Polishes can be found at Forever 21 for $2.80 a bottle. (click here to view all shades)
