Alphabet Challenge: U is for Under the Boardwalk by China Glaze - Swatches and Review

I only had a few polish choices for the letter U in the Alphabet Challenge and you all know how much I love the China Glaze Summer Neon Collection so I decided to use Under the Boardwalk today :)  There are just 2 jellies in this collection and I just showed you the other one, Ride the Waves, for the letter R.
 Sorry I guess I was a little messy! Let's just ignore that :)
This is 3 coats of Under the Boardwalk with 1 coat of Out the Door top coat.
 Fuchsia is always the hardest color for me to photograph because is looks so different in different lighting. Remember the Jelly Sandwich I made using Julep Lily ? I think Under the Boardwalk is very similar. Might be a dupe.  I will have to do a comparison.
 In the shade it looks very raspberry.
And now in the sun, it wants to be bright pink!

Still, not a neon, though.  I think the jellies were the odd men out in this "neon" collection.  Not that I'm complaining! I love me some jellies :)

I wanted to make another jelly sandwich, but ran short on time!  Maybe later!

    1. I heard there were 2 versions of this polish out there, but I only have seen this one in person. I can't wait to see your post! I really tried to find the purple version with no luck. Do you know which one China Glaze intended and which is the whoopsie?
