in time for summer, OPI announces the launch of six new neon nail
lacquers, the brand’s first full-size neon shades. Along with the full
size neon shades OPI also just launched “Put a Coat On” which is a
special white base coat that instantly boosts the neon color so it’s
even brighter on your nails! Recently I had the chance to test drive the
new colors, and here’s a glimpse at what’s coming for summer from OPI.
electric hues in shades of lemon-lime, tangerine, hot pink, coral, lime
and purple, this line is perfect for the warmer months when hands and
feet are constantly on display. Curious about the white base I had to
try that first.
The bright hues. There is something about summer that brings out the color enthusiast in all of us. It’s always disappointing when your nail color look much brighter in the bottle than on your finger nails. Lately I’ve been obsessed with corals, and oranges, and these two colors have been on and off my nails for the past couple weeks. I’ve been alternating various accent nails, but I keep coming back to the same two shades: “Down to the Core-al” and “Juice Bar Hoping”. I’ve used the orange “Juice Bar Hoping” on it’s own without the white base coat, and alone it’s also a great shade of orange.
The finish – Some of these colors have an almost irredesecnt hue to them. Down to the Core-al is such a pretty color, and has a really nice shine finish (I almost liken it to the inside of sea shell).
The option to make the colors brighter (or not). I think the white base coat is brilliant. How have we not thought of this sooner? I love how bright it makes the colors when applied underneath these shades.
and I also love the option to make them even brighter. Just make sure
to set aside a little extra time to effectively cover up the white, and
also let all the coats dry effectively. The finished product is worth the wait especially if you love a SUPER bright hue! Next up I think will be that great lime green shade!
