China Glaze Electric Pineapple

Here's something to confuse me.  Electric Pineapple from the China Glaze 2011 Summer Collection Island Escape is listed as a "high intensity creme based lime green."  This is definitely not lime green or maybe I just have weird limes?  If anything, I'd call this like ... dirty yellow?  I don't know what this is, but it's not neon and it's not green.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 3 coats of Electric Pineapple and a top of Seche Vite.  While I actually did love the color, the formula was a bit thin and I could see some bald spots on my nails.

Here in the sun you can see it's not exactly neon yellow but it is very highligher yellow (is there a difference?). The balding isn't as apparent here.

In the shade you can see a tiny bit of my nail (or maybe that's just me) on my middle and ring fingers.  Also you can see how this isn't a neon by any means.

Finally here indoors with the flash you can see the green tones (FINALLY) from this color.  I think a water marble of this and Papaya Punch would be a nice summer manicure (maybe?) and it's definitely a good creme to stamp/Konad over.

China Glaze can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe BeautySally's Beauty Supply, and TransDesign.
