sj + opi neon

recently i got my hands on stephanie johnson's jumbo zip cosmetic in miami yellow + OPI's new (first ever!) neon collection and i just can't get over how perfectly they pair together. 

OPI's collection includes this bright, white base coat which i used for all the following swatches. it truly makes the shades pop (and would look equally lovely on it's own).

easily my favorite- life gave me lemons reminds me of penn tennis balls with the subtlest green undertone. 

you are so outta lime! is a perfectly bright green that applies like a dream.

hotter than you pink is an ultra fluorescent with a hint of purple shimmer. i'd prefer it without the sparkle but nevertheless this is a gorgeous, fun summer shade.

down to the core-al is a neon coral with shimmer so subtle it's only visible in the brightest of lights. i love it! second favorite of the collection.

juice bar hopping is probably the truest neon of the bunch. bold, vivid and so fun.

push & pur-pull while beautiful, is a bit finicky in terms of formula, i believe because of it's thickness.

be still my neon-loving heart!

overall, i'm pleased as punch with this collection. i hope OPI will put out more neons, i can't get enough!

  1. I want a seriously NEON purple, and I was thinking about trying this out out. It seems no one can get a truly bright purple right this year.
