Today I’m going to be reviewing one of my new favorite nail polishes for spring/summer: Essie’s Boom Boom Room from their Neon 2013 Collection.
Boom Boom Room is a bright bubblegum pink color that instantly reminds me of “Barbie.” I’m a sucker for pinks and after seeing various Youtubers and bloggers rave about this polish, I knew I had to get my hands on it. On my trip to Ulta in Florida, I resigned to only purchasing one nail polish (I have THAT much self control haha) and this was the winner.
I really like the formula and found it very easy to apply. I didn’t find it streaky at all, and it only took me two coats to be opaque. I know a lot of people like to first put on a white base coat underneath neon polishes to really make the color pop, but I thought it looked just fine on its own so save yourself the time. Instead, since it does dry matte, I highly recommend adding a top coat to really make the color stand out.
In conclusion, I think I’ve found my go-to pink polish for summer and know I’ll definitely be getting a lot of use out of it in the next couple months! Retails for $8, get it yourself at Target, Ulta, most drugstores, and Amazon (not an affiliate link).
On a side note, you can’t see it in the picture below, but I love how this polish makes my hands look tan for some reason – especially because I’m so pale!
