Models Own Luis Lemon and Bikini
When comparing the two bottles of polish, it's clear that the two shades of neon yellow are quite different but when painted on the nail, the difference becomes apparent.
The Luis Lemon swatch is two coats of the neon shades over a white base, using four coats of polish in total. The Bikini swatch is three to four coats of the polish by itself.
I thought because I was using a white base for Luis Lemon that the colours would be more matched as Bikini is neon yellow pigment mixed with white but there is still a stark difference between the two. As Models Own describe Bikini, it is a pastel yellow and when compared to a purely neon shade like Luis Lemon, you can see there is a definite difference between the Ice Neon polishes and the Polish for Tans.
Bikini is a neon yellow creme which does need a few coats to build colour, but this is normal for lighter, pastel shades. Luis Lemon is quite sheer and jelly like, it can be used by itself or with a white base, whichever you prefer but I would recommend using a white base.
The two polishes have very different qualities and functions I think. Luis Lemon is an acid yellow which is so in your face it's at home at a rave whereas Bikini is Luis Lemon's more wearable sister, something you could take from the beach to the clubs, if you're daring enough that is.
So there you are! Bikini and Luis Lemon are both £5 each and can be found on Models Own's website (the whole Polish for Tans range is released today, 9/4/14!) and Bikini, and the rest of the Polish for Tans range, will be released in Superdrug today (9/4/14) and in Boots 16/4/14.
Remember, Models Own currently have their 6 for £20 offer on the go so take advantage ;-P
