China Glaze Shell-O


More China Glaze neons coming your way.

Today, I have Shell-O, a jelly from the Sunsational Neons collection.  The formula was fantastic, a pure jelly at its finest.  Viscous but not overly thick, Shell-O applied easily without any cuticle dragging.  However, being a jelly, and a neon one at that, this required 4 coats for the opacity you see below.  But since the formula was so pleasant to work with, it wasn't as annoying as you might think. 

The color was also pretty great.  A coral neon jelly, Shell-O photographed somewhat more orange than it was.  Another diva neon from this collection...I'd say I'm getting frustrated, but I really do love this collection, so it's hard to stay mad at some the most summer perfect shades I own.



If nothing else, Shell-O made me look like I had way more of a tan that I actually do.  Pretty cool effect, if you ask me.

  5. I bet Shell-o would be fantastic for a shelly sandwich. (lame attempt at a joke)
