Maniology School's Out Neon Stamping Polish Swatches

Affiliate Code 

Hey there!  Looks like I'm back on the blog today.  I wanted to share this set of Maniology neon stamping polishes, the School's Out collection.  I, personally, think a blog is a good place to post them because it's easier for people to find swatches at a later date so I'll likely be back in the near future to post other stamping polish swatches.  So I guess my blog isn't completely defunct.  It's nearly summer so it's time to bust out the neon polishes!  Neons are notoriously difficult to photograph but I did my best to get them color accurate.  However, these are mostly brighter than they appear.  I'm also including a fun gradient that I did with them just last week since I do love a rainbow mani!

Past Polish Pickup Hit The Bottle Swatches

Nothing to Disclose
Press  Sample

Hey there!  Welcome to my first blog post in well over a year!  I thought I'd pop on here to create a bit of a reference for (almost) all of the Hit The Bottle shades that have been available through Polish Pickup.  I love Hit The Bottle and have been lucky enough to get a lot of her non-PPU polishes as press samples but I like to support the brand so I have purchased every stamping polish that she's put out through Polish Pickup since I first discovered that PPU was a thing (except that two I did receive as samples which I will mark with an *).  Since it's almost time for PPU Rewind this year, I thought this would be a good time to post the swatches I've done of them over my blogging break.  I believe Michelle may post a poll for people decide on which shades they want brought back in her Facebook fan group but don't quote me on that.  I know that not all of the ingredients are available anymore so they won't all be a possibility but fingers crossed that your favourite is!  Also, some of these are still available for purchase from Hit The Bottle, Beautometry and Lantern & Wren (off the top of my head) so you might not even need to wait for Rewind month!   Also, if you're a fan, you may want to check out my 2018 blog post where I swatched all the non-PPU polishes to date.  I do have more swatches to add to that so I should update it soon. 
Note: there's some funny stuff going on with the formatting of the text in this post, with regards to spacing and font.  I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to fix it right now.  Hopefully it's not too off-putting or confusing!
