Lou It Yourself The In Betweeons Swatches + Art

Press Sample 

It's the weekend! Today, I'm heading to the Renaissance Faire because why not? I don't go every year but it's fun to see the period wear and shop the vendors who get into character! Totally not Renaissance inspired is this awesome neon collection from Lou It Yourself. It's my first time trying the brand, and I wore my nail art for a few days, so let's get to it! These are still available so if you love them, go snatch them up!






**All swatches have one coat of top coat. Neon pigment can cause polishes to dry semi-matte, so you want top coat for that glossy look!

Neither Here Nor There: 2 coats. The perfect neon pink that remains pink on my nails and has a fabulous formula. I love how bright it is without a white base. Many neon pinks because coral on my skin, but this is a girly pink that is phenomenal.

Riding the Fence: 2 coats. This bright orange has the same great formula as Neither Here Nor There. It's bright, it's opaque, it's an overall awesome neon orange.

Not Quite There: 3 coats. This is between a yellow and an orange. Because it's lighter, it needed 3 coats, which was fully opaque. A lot of times, colors like this need 4 coats. This color reminds me of a mango, and mango oranges are really flattering on all skin tones.

A Rock and a Hard Place: 3 coats. THIS COLOR. It's a slightly greened neon yellow and I love it. It's so bright! It's the most neon color of the collection, and it helps bring my art together well. You could also do two coats over a white base, but it's so bright on its own.

Agree to Disagree: 2 coats, but I should have done 3 for photos. In person, I was happy at 2 but after, I can see some VNL in the photos. It's a squishy green crelly--it's not fully jelly but it's not a straight creme. It's definitely in between a neon and a grass green.

Undecided: 1 coat. 2 for photos. This blue is AMAZING. It's opaque in one coat. It's again, in between the neon and the bright creme. It's a gorgeous bright sky blue with an amazing formula. I bet this would watermarble well too...if I did that type of stuff. Maybe I need to try it with this collection?

A Little of This: 3 coats.This is similar to Agree to Disagree. It's sort of like a jelly, so it needs three coats. It's a bright blurple color. I think a lot will love this color, even for the fall.

Playing Both Sides: 2 coats.Another pink but this one is much deeper and has more red. I love both pinks and I bet they would make a great gradient. This darker pink completes the collection with the last few darker colors. Great formula at 2 coats.

Of course, rainbow collections means dots for me! This kind of reminds me of a clown's outfit--that wasn't intentional. And as always, neons matte are so cool. Which look do you prefer?

I love this collection, from the concept to the execution. The names are all on par with the "in between" theme. Some colors are super neon and others are bright but not quite neon. I think my favorites are Neither Here Nor There, Not Quite There, A Rock and a Hard Place, and Undecided. 

The In Betweeons retail for $8.00 each or you can purchase the entire set of 8 for $60!
