China Glaze - Limonyte

Hello there friends! Happy Friday :) I have another polish from my dear friend Ange to show you today. This one is a color I've been lusting over for simply ages. China Glaze Limonyte is a fierce glowy neon green, shimmery and beyond sexy. The formula is a tad sheer but applies nicely, this is four coats.

I imagine you could find this on ebay if you were so inclined. I've seen it once or twice, always for ridiculous amounts of money. I believe this polish came out in 2005, in a collection called Nervy Neons (according to the China Glaze Wiki). Oh lordy if ONLY I had been more into polish back then, I could've had so many awesome colors! Shoulda, coulda, woulda :)

  3. I'm dying for this polish! Do you do comparisons by any chance? I was wondering how this compares to I'm So Jaded by Spoiled by Wet 'n' Wild. I bought it a couple weeks ago and they could be possible dupes.

    1. That would be fun Kellie to see this in a comparison to Cha Cha Cha. Off the top of my head Kassie, I would say CCC has less neon look, more yellow to it also, and over all lighter (not as deep in the green hue) in comparison to Lyomite. Closest I have seen to Lyomite (and granted I don't get around to look much due to where I live), are a couple shades that have come along from Sinful. However while I have seen the color of Lyomite - I have not seen it in glass fleck/shimmery as Lyomite has.

    2. from my memory of cha cha cha i think they aren't dupes but could be similar. i'll file that on my "to compare" list :)

  10. Ugh... I want this one so bad but there is no way I'm paying $60 for one bottle of polish! O___o

    I just need a time machine so I can go back to 2005 to purchase this one. :p

    1. I need to go look again at the bottle shots of the CG summer 2012 neon collection that is due to release soon - I think I heard mid May - or maybe it was end of May - but there is a whole new CG neon collection coming out - just maybe there is a green neon in it - thinking there was one. However, not sure if it will be close to this one.

    1. Oh, I love the old formulas before all the companies had to change to (at least) 3 free. I covet a bunch of my old bottles. The first years companies had to do the 3 free, it was so iffy as to how they would or would not apply, hold up, dry, etc.

  17. Do you think this could have a dupe in Finger Paints's Guggen I'm Lime? I picked it up the other day...it looks quite similar in the bottle!

  19. The closest dupe I seen is Misa lets go green. I bought that one a few months back when I was trying to track this color down. I wish I could get my hands on Limonyte,but I don't want to pay 55 bucks.
