Kleancolor - TLC

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: In most photos, yes
SOURCE: Beauty supply in downtown Los Angeles
COMMENTS: Is there such a thing as a neon pastel? I felt like this color fit that description (and quite a few people commented on it), but I like it.  I got the new Bundlemonster plates and decided to be brave and try some stamping. Alas, my stamped pattern in white was too subtle, so I tried outlining it with a white polish. Nice up close, but the stamped pattern still wasn't visible from afar. Ah well...

  1. That definitely is a pastel neon! It's a shame that the stamp was too subtle. The design is really pretty!

  2. Oooh I love this color--very unique; it looks so pretty on you! I have to get my butt down to LA. I think I like it better without the stamping.

  7. Really awesome shade! I will have to look for this one. I actually like the stamp, but I can see it would be subtle from far away. It's so pretty!

  17. I've been away for a few days and look what you go and do? This is beautiful! I love the color choices and I LOVE how your "lace" is inside the bold lines.

  18. Soooooo pretty! I don't think the stamping is too subtle with the white outline - I guess from far away I can see what you're saying, but hey, nails are little from far away anyway, right? :) It's GORGEOUS and you are super, super creative! <3

  19. the stamp pattern in white on your nails with the green makes it look rather lace-like in appearance!

  20. Awesome color and I love the design!

  21. I agree with everyone about how awesome this color is, but it has the worst formula I've ever tried. Ever. And I have used hundreds polishes in my time. Save yourselves the heartache and go with China Glaze Highlight of My Summer instead, it's very close in color but has a decent formula, according to reviews I've read.

    1. I actually didn't have any problems with this one, and in fact used it as part of a franken later. We may have versions formulated at different times. Thanks for mentioning the alternative dupe for those who might have struggled with this though!
