Ever After Polish Spring Back to the Future Collection, part 1

Today I have the neons from the Ever After Polish Spring Back to the Future Collection. Ah yes, as a child of the '80s both these movies and fluorescent colors were a major part of my life! This collection is releasing on Friday - check them out after the break!

Ah look, it's finally 2015! All those magical things we though we would have by now. Well, at least we have neons, still. This highlighter yellow neon is called 10/21/2015 and is a jelly finish that I wore in four coats on its own. You definitely need them unless you are layering it over white, so I recommend that option. This one was a bit difficult - it was pretty thick and did not self level, so layering is your best option unless you like the jelly quality. (Edit: Rachel let me know that this will be shipped a bit thinner so this will resolve some of the leveling and formula issues. Not all bloggers experienced the thick formula. ) It dries to a satin finish but I am wearing it here with top coat. It is a bit more greenish in real life than it is appearing on my monitor.

Great Scott is a neon blue, also a jelly that I wore in four coats. The formula was not as difficult on this one but it still dries satin and does not completely self level. Edit: This will be shipped with a slightly thinner formula. This one didn't want to fake my camera out, thank goodness! It is a really lovely color.

Hoverboard  is a pink neon similar in formula to Great Scott and it wanted to go nuclear in these pics! I would say the last one in the series, with my nails facing up, is the closest to the color in real life. It was just impossible to catch the mega-pinkness of this one.

McFly is the only holo of the bunch and is a bit more opaque and less challenging than the others. This is a red-coral neon that is probably closest to the first pic in this series.

I'll be back soon with the non-neon shades from the collection, which didn't put me and my camera in such knots! Of this batch, I would say my favorites were Great Scott and McFly. I decided to try these out on some nail art which I will have for you later in the week.  How do you like neons? Are you going to pick any up this season? Edit: These will be shipped with a slightly thinner formula to resolve leveling issues. Not all bloggers experienced the thicker formula.
