***Press Sample***Hello Lovely Readers!
Today I have this Neon Collection form OPI to share with you. This collection includes six color shades and a Natural Base Coat (white) called Put A Coat On!
OPI Adds Its First Full-Size Neon Shades to Permanent Collection
OPI announces the launch of six new neon nail lacquers, the brand’s first full-size neon shades, along with Put a Coat On! – a special white base coat that instantly boosts neon color. Neons by OPI arrives just in time for summer, with electric hues in shades of lemon-lime, tangerine, hot pink, coral, lime and purple.
“With hands and feet constantly on display during warmer months, wearing nail lacquer is a must,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “I am a big fan of bright colors for summer, and Neons by OPI delivers a bold look that pairs perfectly with sun-kissed skin. To really make the neon shades pop, I recommend using Put a Coat On!, a new white base coat developed to be worn with bright lacquer hues to further enhance color.
“These six shades are the first full-size neons OPI has ever released,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With large demand for new bright lacquers, this collection is a welcome addition to OPI’s permanent line.”
Life Gave Me Lemons is a bright yellow with a green undertone. I used three thin coats.
You are So Outta Lime! is a vibrant lime green. I applied three thin coats.
Hotter than You Pink is one of my favorites, a bright hot pink with blue shimmer in it. Three coats were needed to obatain full opacity.
Push & Pur-Pull is a deep bright purple. This was the only shade that gave me a little bit of trouble with the application. I did four coats and it would probably need one more, there's some visible bald spots in some areas of my nails.
Juice Bar Hopping is a bright orange shade. I used three coats for this swatch.
Down to the Core-al is another favorite, a vibrant pink/coral shade with a very subtle finish. This was opaque in three coats.
Overall, this is a pretty collection of bright shades, they don't look true neon to me but they are great colors to wear this summer ;)
All of these shades dried to a semi-matte finish but I applied top coat to make them shiny.
If you prefer to use a white color under I would suggest to use one that applies smoothly.
Thank you very much for reading!
