I picked up two polishes by the Spoiled brand which is made by Wet N' Wild and $1.99. I was looking for a good neon pink and it didn't matter to me the brand. I was drawn to "Plastic Flamingo" which is a gorgeous creamy hot pink that is not so neon that you're scared but just neon enough to make an impact. As if neon pink wasn't enough to do that, I wanted to put a glitter polish over it so I grabbed the "I Gotta Confection to Make" (how did OPI not come up with that shade name? Clever!) which is a bright pink glittery polish containing lots of iridescent glitter. I have to say that after doing a manicure with both of these together, I am impressed. And not just "pretty good for $1.99" impressed, I think it is honestly some good quality polish.
"Plastic Flamingo" goes on so nicely. The brush is similar to Sally Hansen Complete Manicure brush which is fairly wide. I have small nail beds so one streak down the middle pretty much covers my whole nail! And it goes opaque in two coats. And it isn't even streaky after only one coat. I used two coats of that and two coats of "I Gotta Confection" which was a very nice glitter. I prefer the look of it over another polish because it doesn't pack enough of a punch on its own. Not that it doesn't have enough glitter because it does but its mostly a clear polish with glitter rather than a colored polish with glitter.
These pictures don't do this pink sparkly fun times manicure justice. On the nails, the pink looks more of a hot watermelon and it would be divine on the toes!
