More new polish!!
Today's post is all about the new OPI Full Size Neons! And I am crazy excited about these lacquers because I am all about the bright colors right now!
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.”
Neons by OPI includes:
Life Gave Me Lemons
This citrusy lemon-lime hits the spot every time!
You are So Outta Lime!
Here comes trouble and she’s wearing this outspoken lime green!
Juice Bar Hopping
This tangerine cream makes me jump for joy!
Hotter than You Pink
Just when you think pink can’t get any hotter, there’s this!
Push & Pur-Pull
This forceful purple has got me coming and going!
Down to the Core-al
The beauty of this brilliant coral goes beyond skin deep.
Put a Coat On!
Amp up any bright shade with this color-boosting base coat.
Here is two coats of Put a Coat On!. After playing with the lacquers you can get away with one coat with the majority of these neons.
You Are So Outta Lime! - I applied two coats over the white base. I absolutely love this subtle, neon green. It isn't as neon bright as the others in the collection but that is what makes it unique. One of my favorites from the collection!
Life Gave Me Lemons - I applied two coats over the white base. For me this is more bright, lime green instead of yellow, but still an amazing color.
Juice Bar Hopping - I applied two coats over the white base. This is the perfect summer, neon orange!
Down To The Core-Al - I applied two coats over the white base. This lacquer has a beautiful shimmer! And the color is amazing!
Hotter Than You Pink - I applied two coats over the white base. This polish has an amazing purple shimmer, however it is the thinnest of the bunch. I had lots of streaking with this one. Also the color is a tad washed out in the photo, much brighter in person.
Push and Pur-Pull - I applied two coats over the white base. My second favorite in the collection! I love this yummy, juicy purple. It is the perfect neon purple!
These neons are fantastic and the perfect accessory to your summer manicure. The only thing I am not sold on is the white base. Due to the streaky-ness of this base it can cause issues with the application. I would rather use a trusted white base (non-streaky). I see many future designs using this collection!
Neons by OPI will also be available in GelColor, marking the launch of OPI’s first neon gel shades. GelColor is a professional salon service that offers a high-shine, 100% gel finish that lasts for weeks with a 30 second LED cure.
“If you’re planning a summer vacation, try a GelColor manicure or pedicure,” said Weiss-Fischmann. “Not only will your neon nails look fabulous, they’ll remain chip-free and flawless while you’re having fun in the sun.”
Neons by OPI will be available in both nail lacquer and GelColor (for professionals only) formulas beginning May 2014. Nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application and will retail for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com. GelColor is an in-salon, professional service only. Prices depend on the salon and range from $28 - $38 for a manicure and $35 - $45 for a pedicure.
