The spring weather seems to be slowly but surely creeping up on us, and I’m all for it! (Warm weather, I welcome you with a cup of iced tea!)
So maybe a little colour therapy will let the remnants of Old Man Winter’s chilly weather leave in peace.
The Neons by OPI Collection contains 6 vivid shades that’ll be available in full-size bottles and in a cute mini set starting this May!
Additionally, they’ll be releasing the OPI Put a Coat On!, which is a white base coat designed to up the Wow Factor of a neon nail polish.
I whipped together a photo showing all the new shades so you can better determine which ones will be ‘jumping into your shopping cart’. 😉
I could never get tired of neons, so I’m very much looking forward to trying the shades and the OPI Put a Coat On! base coat. And, as usual, I’ll share my in-depth review and swatches of the ones I wear as full manicures!
P.S. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that the reason why I missed writing and scheduling a blog post for Tuesday was because I got all worked up watching the exciting head-to-head NCAA National Championship game on Monday night. I was so tired afterwards, I literally went to bed to “take a short nap”, but I ended up falling asleep and waking up with barely enough time to get ready for work! (Did any of you watch the game?)

OPI Releases Six New Neon Nail Lacquers with
Accompanying White Base Coat to Boost Bright Color
OPI Adds Its First Full-Size Neon Shades to Permanent Collection
OPI announces the launch of six new neon nail lacquers, the brand’s first full-size neon shades, along with Put a Coat On! – a special white base coat that instantly boosts neon color. Neons by OPI arrives just in time for summer, with electric hues in shades of lemon-lime, tangerine, hot pink, coral, lime and purple.
“With hands and feet constantly on display during warmer months, wearing nail lacquer is a
must,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “I am a big fan of bright colors for summer, and Neons by OPI delivers a bold look that pairs perfectly with sun-kissed skin. To really make the neon shades pop, I recommend using Put a Coat On!, a new white base coat developed to be worn with bright lacquer hues to further enhance color.”
“These six shades are the first full-size neons OPI has ever released,” adds Weiss-
Fischmann. “With large demand for new bright lacquers, this collection is a welcome addition to OPI’s permanent line.”

shades. GelColor is a professional salon service that offers a high-shine, 100% gel finish that lasts for weeks with a 30 second LED cure.
“If you’re planning a summer vacation, try a GelColor manicure or pedicure,” said Weiss-
Fischmann. “Not only will your neon nails look fabulous, they’ll remain chip-free and flawless while you’re having fun in the sun.”
Neons by OPI will be available in both nail lacquer and GelColor (for professionals only)
formulas beginning May 2014. Nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application and will retail for $10.95 at professional salons and spas across Canada. GelColor is an in-salon, professional service only. Prices depend on the salon and range from $28 – $38 for a manicure and $35 – $45 for a pedicure.
There will also be a cute mini set available!
