So as usual, and for no good reason, I’m totally late on posting these swatches of the so-pretty OPI summer 2014 neons. As you can tell by my nail shape, I got these a little while ago and couldn’t wait to get them on my fingertips. Needless to say, I’m kind of love with (most) of this collection. Easy application + gorgeous colours make me happy. And BTW, all of these swatches were a lovely two coats over white. Enjoy!
Push and Pur-pull
Let’s get the worst out of the way right? This purple shade is definitely not neon to me… is it to you? It was the most ‘jelly’ like of all the neons and the finish wasn’t my favourite. It’s went on a little streaky and watery and just didn’t do it for me. I’d definitely skip this one.
You’re So Outta Lime
Getting much better, already! I loveeee this colour! So green and fun and pretty, though it’s still not a crazy neon. But it’s totally perfect for summer –neon or not.
Life Gave Me Lemons
This is a perfect, lemony colour that I immediately applied after swatching to wear for a while. I find it so unique! It kind of reminds me of a tennis ball, but not as annoyingly yellow, if you know what I mean. There’s a clear hint of green in there, too… It’s like a lemon-lime combo and it’s perfect.
Juice Bar Hopping
Talk about searingly neon! This one is just BRIGHT. But that’s what makes it so amazing. I 100% recommend this if you want something crazy vibrant with good application. Just look how squishy it looks! Yummmm.
Hotter Than You Pink
I thought I wasn’t going to be a huge fan of this colours, because sometimes frosty shimmer reminds me of total grandma polish, and I’m really not there yet. But I have to say, this one made my top two. The shimmer is so pretty and I love that it’s not so subtle that it’s hardly noticeable… you can definitely see it and it makes the polish all that much prettier. It’s the perfect pink, really, with just a touch of neon brightness.
Down to the Core-al
THIS COLOUR THO. Damn, I love this one. Down to the Core-al is a coral pink on steroids and I wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s so bright and neon and so amazingly gorgeous. Easily my favourite of all six shades. Can’t. Get. Enough.
So, do you have any OPI 2014 summer neons? If so, which? x
