Kleancolor "neons"

Neon Purple

(2 coats)

I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a shimmer in it. This definitely needed 3 coats.

Neon Sapphire

(2 coats)

I bought this for the giveaway, but I loved it so much I had to buy myself a bottle as well. It really reminds me of RBL's Dead Calm. The photo is a little dim so the color is a bit lighter.

Neither of these are particularly neon but the blue is just absurd.

Those are nice colors, but I don't consider them neon either lol!

what base + top coat did you use with kleancolor? i have 4 of their polishes and i find that they take FOREVER to dry. and not in a normal dry on top, wet underneath way either. it's more like, all through it's kind of "soft" and pliable (they got sheet imprints HOURS after I painted them). did you notice this? what are your recommendations?

Gilded - It's so silly.

Grace - My standard basecoat is Lippmann hydrating + Orly bonder, I don't actually have a standard topcoat - i'm still trying to figure out which one I like best. I used Poshe w/ the Neon Sapphire however. Every kleancolor I have tried has absolutely terrible drying time. I actually have the neon sapphire on right now and I can still dent it after 8 hours (I have to press w/ my nail hard but still!). Sadly no recommendations to combat that. You get what you pay for w/ Kleancolors!

Tuli & thriszha - They have such pretty colors! I'm really impressed w/ the new collection of colors considering the price (1$-1.50$ each).

Love those shades on you. Glad to know about this brand.

I have a bottle of that Kleancolor Neon Sapphire & its absolutely gorgeous on, though its not what I'd really call a neon. I had the same drying problems - I found SH Insta-Dri TC works really well to get these to dry quickly. It does look like it makes the polish bubble, but wait a few hours & they disappear (I do my mani at night & there's no bubbling showing in the am), plus thinning the formula a bit helps too, so its two thin coats to opacity, rather than two overly thick ones. Hope that helps!
