Hello readers,
Today I have one more polish from Emerald & Ash's Life in Color Collection - You Sun Of A Beach.  If you missed Part I of my review you can find it here.

"An eye-searing bright neon leaning coral crelly that hits you with a dose of scattered holo, just in case you already haven’t been blinded. Due to the nature of neon pigments this will dry to a semi-matte look. Leave it as is or gloss it up with a top coat, your choice! You can always layer it over a base coat of white polish to make the color pop even more! Without a base color you can get full coverage in 2-3 coats."

The formula on this polish was great.  I required three thin coats to reach opacity.  I didn't have any issues with streaking or bald spots which can be problematic for neons.  The subtle holo sparkle is very pretty too.  Fun fact: This polish also reacts very strongly to UV lighting and glows like crazy.  Photos show three coats of You Sun Of A Beach with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural lighting, except for the last picture which was taken in UV lighting.  I should also note that this polish is even brighter in person.  My camera was overwhelmed by the neon.

If you like this polish don't forget to enter my giveaway for two $20 Emerald & Ash gift certificates which is still going on for three more days.  You can find the entry form in my post reviewing their awesome cuticle oils.  If you can't wait to see if you've won you can find Emerald & Ash at:
