Good morning, friends! Today I have some new limited edition, mini neon sets from Nicole by OPI to show you!
Some info from Nicole by OPI's press release:
Nicole by OPI launches its first neon nail lacquer with two limited edition mini kits. Scandalous! Neons includes vivid shades of blue, purple and pink while the Notorious! Neons includes vibrant shades of green, fuchsia and orange.
Each Neons kit includes a special white base coat, to be applied before adding color, allowing true neon pigments to pop. “These kits offer the hottest hues in a mini size to complement summer styles,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Think of your nails as a blank canvas. With these color combinations, there are endless options for creating works of art.”
Here's some swatches from the first set, Notorious Neons! I did 2 layers of the white, and then topped that with each of the neon colors. I did need about 2-3 layers of each of the neons, as these are on the sheer side. The "Fuchsia Neon" (middle finger) was my favorite from this half:
And here's the colors from "Scandalous Neons" set. These colors were a bit less vibrant than the first half, but still pretty and definitely bright. Again, I did 2 layers of white and topped each with 2-3 layers of each neon. How pretty is this blue??!
I usually hate mini sized bottles, but these ones from Nicole by OPI have a nice long handle that made applying the polish with them easier. The white polish was surprisingly nice too, making it a perfect base color for these neons.
