Happy Labor Day! I hope you guys are having a good weekend. This is the first Labor Day I’ve had off in years, so I’ve definitely been enjoying the day. I’ve decided to try something new — I want to use the same brand for each of my manicures. I’ve seen a couple other blogs do that and I like the effect. So, here’s my first try.
The colors are all from OPI’s Neon Revolution that came out this past summer. If you haven’t seen it, it was a box of six minis — four neon colors, a white base coat, and a top coat. For this manicure, I did not use the white base coat that came with it; instead I used a cream polish. The white base coat was just too streaky for me to work with and I don’t mind the extra coats of polish of my nails.
The colors are called Blue It Out Of Proportion, Don’t Say It – Yellow It!, Pink Outside The Box, and The Time Is Pow! These neon colors are not available outside of the Neon Revolution box. The black I used is Razzle Dazzler from Nicole by OPI. I wasn’t anticipating liking the black dots when I started (I was mainly trying to cover up the cream color underneath), but that actually turned out to be my favorite part. While these are definitely not tribal nails, I think the black gives it that kind of feel.
The neons weren’t as bright as I was anticipating. I mean, don’t get me wrong, they are bright, but the yellow and pink aren’t true neon. More just thicker, opaque bright colors. I liked using the colors together, but I think my favorite is The Time is Pow!. It gave off a subtle coral hint while still remaining an orange. It’s a little hard to describe, but I liked the pop of that color.
