My Experience With Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Neon Nail Color Vibrant Violet:
Packaging and Applicator: The product comes in a rectangular thick-walled bottle with the applicator. The bottle has every information written on it and overall it is travel-friendly. The applicator is a flat brush. It has a curved shape at its tip and the flat profile which flattens out more when you apply more pressure. Therefore, you can get the color on the nails in a single stroke by varying the pressure needed depending on the nail size. I really like this kind of applicator.
Shade: The shade 'Vibrant Violet' is true to its name. It is a deep neon kind of violet that compliments my warm skin enormously. The color has a very rich and sophisticated feel to it and would look great on any skin tone. You can wear the color alone or apply a glitter or sequin top coat as well for events.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is as disappointing as the previous one. Well, the new technique is that I applied a nice coat of white nail color underneath. The white color underneath helped the violet color to pop up better and gave an opaque pigmentation. Nevertheless, the color takes 3-4 coats on top of white coat to go opaque and neat. I really wish Sally Hansen would make some better neon colored nail polish in the near future.
Texture and Finish: The texture of the nail polish is certainly very runny and that is why you need so many top coats. The color will sheer out in the first two coats and thus you have to wait for one layer to dry up and then go for another one. So I would say that the nail polish application is extremely time-consuming. Coming to the finish of the color, you very well see that the finish is somewhat between matte and glossy. Thus, you have to use either a gloss or matte top coat to make it work out on the nails. Overall, the nail polish takes forever to dry and consumes a lot of time.
Staying Power: The staying power is good. It lasts on my nails for around 5 days and then starts to chip from the corner as there are so many layers. If I apply a matte top coat or a glossy coat, then the nail polish lasts for about a week which is pretty good in my opinion. The removal is slightly tough as there are so many layers to swipe. Nevertheless, the color will not stain the nails when worn alone as well.

Diva Likes Rating:
This color is also a disappointment but at least you can make it work slightly under the white base. However, I wouldn't recommend it all. There are better neon colors in the market.
