Summer Gradient with Maybelline Color Show Bleached Neons Nail Polish: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
For Summer 2014, Maybelline released a limited edition collection of the Color Show Nail Polishes. Featuring seven shades of "neon pastel" colors, the collection is called the Bleached Neons ($4.49). Today I want to share with you a fun orange and purple gradient manicure I did with two colors from the collection. To see some more picture and read my reviews of the polishes, click.......

Coral Heat: A soft neon coral, this color had a fairly pigmented formulation. With a skillful application you can probably achieve opacity in two coats but I had to use three on some fingers.
Ultra Violet: This one is a very pretty and delicate lavender. The formulation of this is quite similar to Coral Heat; it is rich but does streak so you might need to go in with a third coat.

For my summer gradient manicure, I used Coral Heat as a base and sponged on some Ultra Violet using a makeup wedge. The result is super fun and I love how the two colors blend together so nicely!
