I love nail polish, always have done. Even as a child I'd colour my nails with felt tips as I wasn't allowed polish. I've just never been wildly experimental with it!
So for this year's summer hols, I wanted something a bit different and was slightly giddy to discover Orly's neon pink 'Oh Cabana Boy'. I've never had a neon anything in my life, but I'm in love and just can't stop staring at my nails!
Application - This is the first time I've tried an Orly polish and it won't be the last... the silky smooth, richly pigmented formula gave full coverage in two coats. You could probably get away with one - and I always quite like the subtlety of a single coat - but two looks more finished and gives a more in-your-face fluro effect! The rubberised handle helps control the application too.

Colour - I found it difficult to capture the full fluro effect in these images. The neon pink has a very subtle electric purpley blue shimmery undertone in certain lights, which I just love. It's a bit 80s Spandex meets Barbie and while I wouldn't wear it on my hands everyday, I reckon it's perfect for holidays and will look great with a tan!
