New summer neons from Essie!

If you need something bright and sunny to wake you up this morning, feast your eyes on this:

Need another look?

It’s the “Poppy Razzi” collection from Essie.  Read that as “paparazzi.”

The colors are:

  • Lights — fuchsia
  • Camera — coral red
  • Action — tangerine
  • Bazooka — orange

I feel like singing the Sesame Street song about “which of these things doesn’t belong” when it comes to the name “Bazooka.”  What on earth does that have to do with Lights, Camera, Action? Or paparazzi??

At any rate, these are beautiful bright neons.  Essie recommends putting the neon color over an opaque white and finishing off with a clear top coat for maximum brightness and shine, and the display shows those as well.

I’ve only tried one neon polish in the past, a red, and I didn’t like it because it was so sheer and it had a rubbery-looking finish.  Maybe I was doing it wrong — who knew?  I’ll try it again over an opaque white base coat and with a shiny top coat and see if it looks better.

These look like fun colors for summer, for either fingers or toes.  Or both.  My only beef is that several of the colors look very similar to some others that Essie released earlier this spring in the “Navigate Her” collection.

See what I mean?
