Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! I know it’s been quiet this week on the blog — I’ve been feeling the lingering effects of the cold I had a few weeks back, so my energy has been pretty low. I spent my 2 days off basically sleeping, so my nails have taken a bit of a back seat.
But, I recently stopped into my local Marshall’s & they were better stocked with fun colours, so naturally I needed to buy myself a new one! & of course — we had to go with neon! This is ORLY Put the Top Down, originally released as part of the Summer 2016 Pacific Coast Highway collection.
2 coats + Seche Vite Top Coat
I’m not going to lie — this shade is not the easiest polish to photograph thanks to its neon shade. I feel like it’s looking a bit more pink on my laptop screen than it did when I took pictures on my phone, & definitely more pink than on my nails — but that’s neon nail polish for you! I will say though, the formula is pretty awesome for a neon, if only a bit thick. It doesn’t dry matte, though, which is kind of awesome, but I did find a needed a bit of top coat to smooth my second coat down.
Doesn’t this shade just scream Summer? It’s so bright & vibrant, you need to wear sunglasses when you wear it.
I’m actually really happy I found this shade at Marshall’s. It’s been a while since I have found any good shades, sadly. I also have another shade in my stash from this collection (ORLY Scenic Route) which is one of my favs, so I’m glad to have added another. I might have to check out a few more Marshall’s to see if they’ve gotten any more shades from the collection that I can add to my stash. I love Winners/Marshall’s finds like this!
What do you think of ORLY Put the Top Down? Do you remember this shade from Summer 2016? Are you a fan of a good neon for Summer — or a March day when it’s below freezing, & they’re calling for 10cm of snow?

Oh for gorgeous! I am loving brighter colors now, too (wearing Mint Candy Apple at the moment… pastel-y but still bright), and this pink looks AMAZING on you! (and kinda makes me want to redo my own mani with a hot pink tonight!) Have a blessed day!
Thank you!! I think I’m becoming a hot pink girl!
Also absolutely love Mint Candy Apple — & I don’t think I’ve ever swatched it for the blog so I definitely have to change that! Enjoy your day beautiful! 💗
Hot pink is always a winner!Yes!!! Please do! (I topped mine with a black and white fleck topper I have midday after being inspired by your speckled skittles the other day). Thank you for your posts!
Happy to inspire!
