Continuing on with my reveal of the summer brights in OPI’s Neon Revolution, today I bring you the other three polishes in this adorable mini pack! (See the pink one here!)

The Time is Pow! is a bright orange neon jelly, and is probably the brightest-looking out of the four in the bottle. I love a beautiful orange in the summer and this is no exception! The consistency was similar to Pink Outside the Box: jelly, smooth application. I applied two coats over white, but this time I left my index finger with just clear base – no white – to give you an idea of what it’s like alone.

Two coats over white, except index finger which is 2 coats over base coat, pre-top-coat:

The orange was such a challenge for me to photograph… it kept photographing really pale in the sun, especially when I applied top coat. Here it is with top coat, super-shiny:

The next lacquer was challenging to apply, especially because I rushed the white base also, leaving streaks on the white canvas. Don’t Say It – Yellow It! is a beautiful neon yellow, but due to its light colour, the jelly looks really sheer. Yellow is really difficult to apply when cream, so I found the jelly consistency to make it even more difficult. Here are 2 coats over white base, with top coat:

OPI_Neon_DontSayItEven with the slight streaking you see, I think I will give Yellow It another try. The shine and that colour are just too gorgeous!

Last but not least, Blue it Out of Proportion, a pretty and innocent-looking blue (in the bottle)! Blue is one of my favourite colours, and this blue jelly was dreamy! It really comes alive when applied over the white base, as you can see in the photo. I applied two coats Blue it Out of Proportion over white base:

Overall, I absolutely loved this mini set. A perfect collection, released at the perfect time. I felt the summer heat just applying these beauties! The consistency overall was great, and loving jellies as much as I do, I would love to wear these differently. The only negative? I wish they were full-size bottles!

So which of the Neon Revolution minis is your favourite?

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!

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:

  1. One coat of colour-intensifying white base
  2. Two coats of Neon lacquer
  3. 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!!!

OPI_Neon_PinkOutsidetheBoxIs that not a perfect neon shade?

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:
