Nicole by OPI Neon Sets - Swatches and Review

Hi ho hi ho!
Today I have for you the newest neon collection via Nicole by OPI.
Nicole by OPI has released this month 2 sets of mini polishes in bright neon summer shades!
Each set comes with a white polish as well to make the neons pop even brighter!

Also - I re-did my blog design, so if you were wondering where you were, well, you're here, silly!

Nicole by OPI - Scandalous Neons Kit
Nicole by OPI - Notorious Neons Kit

how cute are these boxes the kits are in? I love the neon sign design of them! The Scandalous Set includes Blue, Purple and Pink Neons.

The Notorious Neons Set includes Green, Fuchsia and Orange Neons.

Overall I really enjoyed these kits. I don't generally use too many neons, and when I do I don't use them all together like these, so it was fun to play with some crazy brights!

Application on the white polish in these sets was 2-3 coats.
Most of the neons coated nicely in 2 coats with the exception of Blue and Fuchsia which needed 3 coats each. But that was a nice surprise because most neons can be a nightmare to apply.
Also - as with all neons, these dry to a matte-ish finish, so you will need top coat to get this kind of shine.

Here is a bonus watercolor mani I did using all 6 neons!

Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality.   Scandalous! Neons and Notorious!
