Hello Everyone! Today I have some swatches and a review of the OPI Neon Collection that was released for summer 2014. This collection is full of bright, and fun colours, which are always great for the summer! The above photos are three coats of each polish, without a white base underneath.
The above photos are two coats of white, as well as two coats of the polish. OPI recommends wearing a white base underneath these polishes to get the full effect, and brightness of the polish.
OPI Down To The Core-Al
First: Three Coats of Down To The Core-Al
Second: Two Coats of white, and two coats of Down To The Core-Al
This shade is a gorgeous bright coral shade, which is one of my favourites for the summer. It is very bright, regardless of whether you have a white base. I prefer this shade without the white base; I find it just looks cleaner, and still super bright.
OPI Hotter Than You Pink
First: Three Coats of Hotter Than You Pink
Second: Two Coats of White and Two Coats of Hotter Than You Pink
This polish is probably one of my favourite from the collection. It is a gorgeous bright, pink shade, with some shimmers as well. I found that both swatches looked fairly similar, if I had added one more coat of the non white base swatch it would have looked basically the same.
OPI Juice Bar Hopping
First: Three Coats of Juice Bar Hopping
Second: Two Coats of White and Two Coats of Juice Bar Hopping
This is a basic bright orange colour. I shade like this is released in almost every summer collection, especially from OPI and Essie. I didn’t find this one to be terribly unique, but it is a nice orange colour if you are on the market for one. The white base definitely made a difference for this polish, and it appears much brighter on the second photo.
OPI Life Gave Me Lemons
First: Three Coats of Life Gave Me Lemons
Second: Two Coats of White and Two Coats of Life Gave Me Lemons
This was one of the favourites of the collection. It is a gorgeous bright, yellow colour, but I definitely would not consider this shade neon. The swatch with the white base is definitely brighter, so you have to choose your preference.
OPI Push ‘N’ Pur-Pull
First: Three Coats of Push ‘N’ Pur-Pull
Second: Two Coats of White and Two Coats of Push ‘N’ Pur-Pull
This colour is gorgeous, and I definitely prefer it without the white base. I found it to be too patchy with the white base. It is much darker than expected, and will be a great polish for the fall. I found this one to be out of place in a neon collection.
OPI You’re So Outta Lime
First: Three Coats of You’re So Outta Lime
Second: Two Coats of White and Two Coats of You’re So Outta Lime
This is a bright green, and definitely my favourite from the collection. I found this polish looked much better in the photos, but it is still a gorgeous green. I preferred it with a white base, because it did turn out much brighter, and borderline neon.
Overall I loved the colours released in this collection, however, the formulas were patchy. Some were okay, and some were very hard to work with. My picks from this collection would be Life Gave Me Lemons, and You’re So Outta Lime. OPI retails for $9.95, and there is also a mini set available containing all of the colours.
