Ella + Mila Limeade with Neon Flowers- Press sample

Hey guys! I don't normally do Saturday posts, but I've decided to join up with this month's #clairestelle8feb challenge. Today's prompt is pastels, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a swatch of Ella + Mila Limeade from the Samba collection.

If you've been an Ella + Mila fan for a while you might have noticed that their bottles have changed. Last summer at Cosmoprof North America 2016 they announced that all of the bottles would display the collection name below the logo. I love the idea because now you don't have to dig around for collection info at all.

Formula: The formula was a bit off. I had issues with self leveling and brush strokes. They are most apparent before I add nail art and a second layer of top coat. I know this can be an issue with some pastels, but I haven't run into this issue in a while.
Finish: Pastel lime green.
Coverage: 2 coats
Notes: I love the shade, but the formula and I didn't get along.

I wanted to pick something that would contrast with Ella + Mila Limeade in a fun, bright way. I think this neon pink does a great job.

I have a new toy thanks to a dear friend, so I had to see if this would work with a blacklight. To my delight it glowed!

I'm a huge fan of these blacklight photos, so I think you will be seeing a lot more of them when applicable.
