Good morning friends! It's Friday, do your happy dance! Hopefully you have weekend plans to get out there and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. I will definitely enjoy soaking up some rays out on the soccer fields as I am in a tournament. Saturday will be an especially long day as I have 3 games, then 2 more on Sunday. So wish me luck! As for today, I have a fabulous new collection to share with you. MORE neon flakies from Smitten Polish. The last set (which you can see HERE) was so amazing I may have let out an audible squee when I saw the new additions! These are freaking fantastic! Alright, the details you want to know. The Summer 2015 neon flakies will be available for pre-order (24 hour period) on 7/1 at 2pm CST. Alright, are you ready to see swatches? I am definitely ready to share them so let's go! While you peruse pictures I am going to sneak off and start hydrating and carbo-loading for the long weekend of soccer games.

Here's a quick skittle mani to show you the 4 new colors! They are so bright and vibrant, absolutely perfect for the summer! The flakies give all 4 polishes that amazing glow that just reels me in and renders me useless. All the pictures in this post are in direct sunlight.
This is Pool Noodle, a neon pink full of flakies that take on a golden iridescent look in the base. I love it. It's the perfect shade of pink and brightness. Plus the flakies add so much depth to the polish. The formula was really fabulous, creamy and opaque. I used 2 coats of Pool Noodle and 1 layer of topcoat.
As much as I loved Pool Noodle, you know my heart belongs to orange. Jar Of Sunshine is a juicy neon orange full of iridescent flakies that take on a golden/green shifting color in the base. This reminds me of a freshly squeezed glass of orange (or tangerine) juice. Jar Of Sunshine is bright and beautiful! The formula was great, creamy and opaque. Application was a dream. Great coverage with 2 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.
Out of the 4 in this collection, Ice Pop Paradise really stood out to me as the most unique. It's a perfect shade of purple (leaning blurple) with iridescent flakies that appear blue-green against the base color. The contrast of colors are totally swoon worthy. Ice Pop Paradise leans a bit more to the jelly consistency of the last neon flakies but that makes it all the more great with it's fabulous squishiness. Application was a piece of cake. I used 3 coats and 1 layer of topcoat.
And lastly we have Lazy River. This is an amazing teal leaning green full of iridescent flakies that appear to shift between gold and green in the base. Looking at this color makes me want to jump into a inner tube and float on down a lazy river, preferably with a nice cold adult beverage in one hand and a water gun in the other. Lazy River also had jelly-like formula but covered amazingly well in 2 coats. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat. Please take note that Lazy River is ever more green and vibrant than I was able to capture in my photos so the bottle you purchase/wear will look slightly different than this (dang teal is just one of those colors that isn't easy to capture in pictures).
