Yesterday I promised you swatches of the beautiful, Limited Edition OPI Neon Revolution mini set, and today I have your first look… at hot, HOT pink, “Pink Outside the Box!!”
As announced, the Neon Revolution mini pack features four limited edition neon nail lacquers, along with a neon white base coat and OPI Top Coat. They are adorably cute!
OPI advises applying these lacquers in 3 simple steps:
- One coat of colour-intensifying white base
- Two coats of Neon lacquer
- One coat of OPI Top Coat
The white base, like almost all whites, tends to be a bit streaky if not applied carefully. This was not a big deal under Pink Outside the Box but can be under lighter colours. Here is one coat:
The next step is applying the Neon shade. All the lacquers in this set are a jelly formula – lending themselves towards a sheerer application – which makes them perfect over a white, intensifying base. At first glance, in the bottle, POTB looks like a bright pink. But apply two coats of POTB over the white base… and it is absolutely and blindingly HOT PINK!!!
The polish dries to a slight satin finish as neons often do (you can see it in the picture above). Apply one coat of top coat, and it obtains a mirror-like shine:
What do you think of Pink Outside the Box and the Neon Revolution mini pack? Were you as excited as me to get your hands on this?
Next time, I’ll bring you the rest of the OPI Neons, and you can pick your favourites.
This limited-edition collection will be available in July wherever OPI is sold, including Nail Polish Canada, though I have heard that this set has already been spotted in stores!
