Hello Sweeties! Today I have the fantastically bright Boardwalk Collection which consist of 9 neon creams, as well as the polish Worth the Wait from Virago Varnish. All of their nail lacquers are 5-Free which means they do not contain: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. Founded in 2014 by Adrienne Wonzo, Virago Varnish is quickly making their mark in the Indie Nail Polish industry.

Virago Varnish-Bikini Boardwalk
Virago Varnish-Bikini Boardwalk
 Bikini Boardwalk is a soft yet bright neon crème. I used three thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. This was probably the thinnest of all the polishes but still leveled out perfectly by the third coat.

Virago Varnish-Booze Cruise
 Booze Cruise is a bright purple neon crème. I used two thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. I could have gotten away with one coat but I did two for good measure. Very opaque formula and applied easily. Dries to matte so it needs a glossy top coat for a glossy finish,

I Can't Kelp Myself is a bright green neon crème. I used two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula is a bit on the thicker side but still very easy to work with. It dries a waxy matte so you will need a glossy top coat for a glossy finish.

Lifeguard Lagoon is a dark but bright blue neon crème. I used two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Pretty opaque formula and applied well. Dries to a waxy matte finish so will need a glossy top coat for added shine.

Paradise Pool is a soft but bright sky blue neon crème. I used two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. The first coat was streaky but leveled out nicely by the second coat. It dries matte so you will need a glossy top coat for a glossy finish.

Summer Highlighter of my Life is a very bright yellow green neon crème. I used two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. The first coat was patchy but leveled out perfectly by the second coat. This is by far the best highlighter yellow polish I have ever used! I still cant believe how opaque it was without a white undie. It dries matte so you will need a glossy top coat for a glossy finish.

Tsunami Mommy is a bright pink neon crème. I used two thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Definitely could have gotten away with one coat but I always do two for good measure. A very opaque formula and easy application. Dries to a waxy matte finish so it will need a top coat for a glossy finish.

Wait Unteal the Sun Sets is a deep but bright teal crème. I used two thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Again, only needed one coat but I always do two. Very opaque formula and applied easily. This is my favorite of the collection! It dries to a waxy matte so it will need a top coat for a glossy finish.

Overall, I loved every single one of these polishes. I think this is the first set of neon creams I have ever swatched that even by the first coats I knew they weren't going to need white undies which is a huge plus in my book! Most had a somewhat thick formula but that is to be expected with any neons that only need a couple coats for full opacity. Defeniently not thick enough that they are unmanagable! Still applied very easily and smoothly. Plus I actually did some stamping with them as well! My next thing to try is to see if they watermarble! So stay tuned!

The Boardwalk collection is sold in whole for $85.00. Each polish shown above is sold for $9.85. I did read that some of the Boardwalk polishes are in their final restocks so I would head on over there to grab yours while they are still available!!
