The Orly Nail Lacquer in Key Lime Twist is a light neon yellow green. Key Lime Twist is a part of the Sugar High collection. Many neon polishes tend to be on the streaky side, but this one actually has a really nice formula! It is actually quite similar in color to Glowstick (also by Orly) but it's formula is so much better and the color is a bit more pastel. On my nails is two coats of Key Lime Twist.

The Orly Nail Lacquer in Passion Fruit is a bright warm medium pink with no shimmer or glitter. I wouldn't necessarily call it a neon color, but it does look quite bright in the pictures. Passion Fruit's formula is quite thin, but it still applies pretty opaque. I used two coats of Passion Fruit on my nails in the photos.

The China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Shore Enuff is a bright medium-light green with a cream finish. It's not quite a neon, but it has the semi-matte finish of one. The polish also had a very quick dry time, similar to many neon colors. It was a bit sheer, but it applied evenly to the nails. In my opinion, this color looks much prettier in the bottle and even in the swatch pictures than it does in real life. On my nails, Shore Enuff looks like a true grass green and it's just not very flattering. I applied three coats of Shore Enuff to all the nails and applied a shiny top coat over the ring finger.

The Orly Nail Lacquer in Glowstick is a neon safety yellow color with a semi matte finish. This color is intensely bright and I am in love with it! Glowstick has a nice formula that is easy to apply, but, it's not very opaque and took four coats over bare nails and three coats over a white base (which I did on my middle fingernail). I don't mind having to use four coats because the polish dries quite quickly and isn't thick on the nails.

The Julie G Nail Color in 9 to 5 is a neon peach with a matte finish. The matte finish allows the polish to dry quickly, which is always a plus. Other than drying fast, there wasn't anything good about the formula. I used four coats of 9 to 5 in the swatches, and I still don't think it looks all that great. I also found that the color really highlighted all the issues with my nails, especially on my index and middle fingernail. I left 9 to 5 with its matte finish on my middle and pinky nail, and applied a top coat on the index and ring finger.
