essie single-handedly pioneered the neon purple nail trend.
last summer they released bermuda shorts - a "high-voltage violet", and the unique color was met with a surprising cult following. perhaps in response to the market's demand for a purple neon, this summer's neon collection from essie included an updated version, perky purple - an "electric boogie violet".
but how different are the two shades? well, on my top nail i'm wearing perky purple and my bottom i'm sporting bermuda shorts.
both have a matte finish without top coat (which is how they are featured here), but perky is definitely more purple, whereas bermuda has a lighter, more magenta hue.
