Pink Wednesday: China Glaze Sugar High & CND Violet Shimmer Effect

Happy Wednesday everyone. For today's mani I have a swatch of China Glaze's Sugar High I got in one of my hauls sometime ago but hadn't yet had the chance to try it.

Sugar High is a medium creme pink from the Up & Away Collection. The name suits the polish really well because it does make me think of candy every time I look at it.
I had seen this polish on other people's nails and read a few reviews before buying it, and it looked much more of a bright hot pink than it does on my nails! When I first opened the bottle I could almost see the hint of neon everybody talks about but on my nails I could detect a hint of coral instead.
This polish is loaded with pigmentation and was fully opaque in 2 coats, no problems with streaks either.

I had a bottle of CND Effects Violet Shimmer on my shelf that I've never used and just wanted to experiment a little so I layered it over Sugar High. I think it would be much more evident and looks better over dark colours where the shimmer really has a chance to pop, however I also think it looks good over Sugar High. It turned it into a very shiny neon and although I had trouble getting this on picture, it was very evident outdoors in direct sunlight.
