The Nail Junkie Neon Shimmer Jelly Collection

Last year, Aleta, creator of The Nail Junkie polishes, released a few of her shimmer jellies. One of which made my Best of 2012 list - Grape. You can see my post on that the others by clicking on individual pic in the photo below.

And now...Banana!

Banana is "a jelly polish in the brightest neon yellow. It's loaded with holographic shimmer and can be worn as a build-able squishy jelly or you can layer it over glitters for a colorful "jelly sandwich". This shade is from last year's collection. No changes were made."

I used 3 light coats of this one alone and am showing you how it looks with and without top coat. No issues to report at all. The formula and application were perfect. I had a difficult time capturing the true color because it's really bright! The natural lighting photos are the most color accurate.

First, with no top coat...
