A few days ago, I showed you Deborah Lippmann's boxed neon set, Run the World (Girls), and today, I have for you the other mini neon set out on the market, OPI's Outrageous Neons...
Set in the box. From left to right, contains a white base, yellow, orange, pink, and purple neons, and a topcoat.
Ridiculously Yellow - neon, daffodil yellow. This is the only one of the 4 that I showed over the white base (like with the Lippmann, I had streaking with the darker colors over white). It's a little brighter than it's Lippmann counterpart, being a daffodil yellow, rather than an egg yolk yellow. Picture shown is 2 coats over 2 coats of the White Base.
Formidably Orange - bright, red-orange neon. This one reminded me of a neon version of OPI A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find (much like the Lippmann). 3 coats.
Riotously Pink - bright pink neon. This pink is very bright, but it's not retina-searing like Orly Beach Cruiser. I think this one would look amazing with a black stamped design. 3 coats.
Seriously Purple - magenta purple neon. This one had a lot of red in the base, and reminded me of Zoya Charisma. 3 coats.
The formula on all of these was very similar. It took 3 coats to reach opacity. You will also want to wait a few minutes between coats as they are prone to drag.
My biggest issue with these is the size of the bottle. I never use up a bottle of polish, so the amount of polish you get (a eighth of an ounce) isn't my problem. It's just that the brush is so itty-bitty. :P I also found myself wishing for a different color, such as a blue or a green or a bright (non red) purple.
This OPI boxed set retails for $19.99, and can be purchased a supply stores, salons, and online.
