OPI has a set of 6 new neon colours that I love, love, love! These new colours are super fun and make me feel like I’m wearing summer on my nails.
In this collection there are:
Life Gave Me Lemons – Yellow
You are so Outta Lime! – Green
Juice Bar Happing – Orange
Down to the Core-al – Coral
Hotter than you Pink – Pink
Push & Pur-Pull – Purple
Included with this set of neon colours is a white called Put a Coat On! and is used under the colours to make them stand out even more. We all know those neon colours you can get at the store that are too bright. So bright that they don’t look good. Well, OPI did a great job of getting these colours bright but not too bright. These colours pop, but not so much that people aren’t going to like them.
The design I did with these colours is super simple and you can do it with just a few of the polishes or all of them like I did. I started with applying two coats of Put a Coat On! and then two coats of the neon strips over that. You might be thinking “That’s a lot of coats on your nails!” but the polishes are thin and very light so I had no trouble with them drying because of the multiple coats. Then I added the black lines and dots to finish it off.
Something that surprised me is that these colours actually dry pretty matte, so if you want them glossy make sure to add your shiny top coat.
OPI’s neon collection for this summer is a huge win! Are your nails going to ‘pop’ this summer?
