Essie "Chills & Thrills" Nail Lacquer

Hi everyone!

With all these summer collections coming out I'm gonna be broke soon! ;-)

Essie launched their Summer Neons Collection Too Taboo and every year when they come out with their fun flashy colors I'm always in for the ride. And so this year also, I got all six shades!!! Help!!!

The first color I decided to wear is Chills & Thrills. Now this isn't really a neon, it's a nice and bright color - pretty - but not neon. That being said, the consistency is not what you might expect from a neon; they are usually thin, runny, streaky and sheer. Not Chills & Thrills though! The consisency was rather thick (and not just thick for a neon, thick for a nail polish in general)! I had to work quickly in order not to goop up the color, it still turned out a bit lumpy, unfortunately.

To make it more neon and to make it pop more you could of course apply the color over a coat of white polish, but I can never be bothered!

 Chills & Thrills was opaque in one coat, I used two, to even out blotchiness and to correct the shape. When it dries, it becomes slightly matte, I noticed because applying the top coat made a real difference in shininess! Oh, and I waited a little longer before applying my top coat, so that I wouldn't move around the color, since it applied so thickly.

Please note: Chills & Thrills is less of a royal blue (as it might appear in the picture) and more of a violet blue, the picture is not exactly true to color, the shade is a little more subdued and muted and not quite as cool toned!

*edit: after wearing it for a couple of days: it chipped really fast!

Now I'm really curious about the other colors and can't wait to try them!
