This was a very bizarre find for me:

I found this beauty sitting by itself in a nail polish display rack the last time I visited Walgreens. It looked like a neon in the store so I was drawn directly to it. I double checked the label to make sure that it was a color I didn't already, it read "Bright-On." But it wasn't until I got home until I realized that something was very peculiar about this polish. I took another look at the name on the bottle and to my surprise it said Brilliant Sun. I thought that was very strange indeed, so I inspected the bottle thoroughly. I looked on the top of the cap for the name of the polish, but the sticker was missing! During my inspection I realized that one side of the bottle says Bright-On while the other it says Brilliant Sun.

I also noticed that the cap is slightly different; it's a dark gray shimmer, and not the standard silver chrome we're used to seeing.

Intrigued by my discovery, I had to try it on.  When I did I really liked it. The color looks great even on my dark skin tone, and really pops; but is not neon to the point where it becomes an eyesore.  What's also cool about this color is that it just between a green and a yellow so sometimes when you stare at it will look cream yellow and other times it will look a soft lime.

B-right On, 3 coats. Ran  a bit thick from the start, so I added some lacquer thinner.

But I did have the feeling that I've seen it before. So I took a look at my shelves where I keep most of my polishes and that's when I saw it--smacking me in the face.  Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear brand has duped itself! Green With Envy could very well be the twin sister of B-right On.

In fact, Green With Envy is Just a shade darker than Bright On (Brillaint Sun)!

Odd Indeed!!!

All in all, I really like both, but if you already have Green With Envy you may decide to pass on Bright-On , since they're not too much different.

Hope you found this review helpful!
