China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada

After a few really nice days, the weather decided to spice it up this weekend and give us pouring rain, thunderstorms and freezing cold. Jeeh mother nature...
So I wanted something to cheer me up on my nails and this polish is bright enough to do just that!

China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada is a neon green polish. This was part of the 2010 Pool Side collection, so it's an older polish, but it's still widely available. This polish is so bright, I absolutely love it and I just can't feel bummed out about the rain with this on my nails.

The formula... well.. it sucks, big time! It's streaky and patchy and just a pain to deal with, but if you do as few strokes as possible and don't go over the same spot twice, it's manageable. This dries extremely fast and normally that is a good thing, but with these neons, it's a little annoying as that is what's giving me problems. This was opaque in 2 coats, but I needed the third to even it out. As most neons tend to do, this does dry a little matte, so a shiny top coat is a must, although I do like the matte finish too.

But you know what? I complete forget about the doggy formula once this is on my nails. I'm just in love with this color! It's not for the faint at heart, but if you like your nails to make a statement, this is definitely a polish I'd suggest you pick up!

Every time I look at me nails, I keep singing "If you like Kiwi Cool-ada's, getting caught in the rain"  I just can't help myself. I can't imagine anybody not knowing the Pina Colada song, but if you don't, you can listen to it here.

What's your favorite neon?



  1. What a great green on you! It must be in the core line I actually picked this up at Sally's the last time I was in, but put it back down. Think I am going to pick it up when I go back ;)
