Maybelline Bleached Neons - Sun Flare and Coral Heat

The sun is out, Spring is here and Summer is well on its way. I'm so excited for Summer this year, and in my case when the suns out, out come the neon nails! Neon goes great with a tan so with a little more skin on show it's only right to brighten up those nails too.


Whilst having a little wander around town at the weekend I saw a very little display in Superdrug with Maybelline's new Bleached Neons nail polish range. After a bit of research these were no where else to be seen, no reviews, not in any other stores, not even on Maybelline's website. Maybe Superdug decided to sneak them out early... With them seeming like a bit of an exclusive and there being a 'buy one get one 1/2 price' offer I just had to snap up a couple.

Sun Flare 

Coral Heat

There are 4 colours in the range, a bright pink, coral, orange and green. It actually took all my strength and will power to not try them all but I opted for the 2 colours I know I would get a lot of use out of. The 2 colours I chose were Coral Heat -an amazing bright coral and Sun Flare -an orange-y peach with is so different from anything I've seen before.

Even with my stupidly large Nail polish collection (I have a problem!) there was no danger of me having a colour like either of these already. I've been searching for a bright neon coral for ages but I've never found one bright enough. It was so hard to photograph. It is brighter than it looks on here, trust me!


Maybelline really doesn't disappoint! Not only are they extremely bright, so much so that I don't think my pictures even do them justice, they are really long lasting too. I have been wearing Sun Flare for 3 days now and there is no sign of chipping. The formula is great, these only needed 2 coats and aren't wishy washy at all.


These were a complete bargain at £3.99 each (though one was half price so even better!)
I'll definitely be picking up the other 2 colours at some point.
