OPI - Neons 2014, Swatches and Review

***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.”


Put A Coat On! is a white base. When I started swatching my polishes, I added this white base and it went streaky, after the second coat it wasn't looking completely smooth to me and I refused to add another layer of white because I still had some color to add plus a top coat. I swatched them without the white under and they still look fantastic.

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!
