Nicole by OPI: Scandalous! Neons: Swatches and Review

Yep, it's that time of year again, the time when NEONS are plentiful and abundant, LOL!

It's SUMMER!!!! Today is the official day of SUMMER, and to kick it off, I have some bright and fun mini-neon polishes from Nicole by OPI.

Nicole by OPI
"Blue Neon"
2 coats of white and 3 coats of "Blue Neon" with top coat

In the sunlight.

 In indirect light.

Gorgeous , gorgeous neon blue, but a bit high maintenance. It was streaky after 2 coats, so 3 is necessary to get a smooth flawless finish.  I also found this to be thinner than the others, so keeping this color from pooling was difficult. Never the less, a gorgeous bright blue!

"Purple Neon"
2 coats of white and 2 coats of "Purple Neon" with top coat.

In sunlight.

In indirect light.

This is a great neon purple creme, and reminds me a lot of Color Club "Puccilicious". This offered the best coverage at 2 coats, and application was easy.

Nicole by OPI
"Pink Neon"
2 coats of white and 2 coats of "Pink Neon" with top coat.

In sunlight.

In indirect light.

A nice bright pink neon creme. No issues with application, applied smoothly.  I do not own a black light to show you how they "glow", but I did take a picture of my nails with a flash super close, LOL...

Glow, baby glow! Hahahahaha....Keep It Sweet!

Beautiful swatches!! I am sorry I purchased the OPI Neon Revolution set. I should have waited and purchased these. They seem more neony (I don't think that's really a word :). Your swatches are always so shiny. Which topcoat do you use? Thank you for always providing such great swatches and helpful reviews!

@Teresa Itzen- For these swatches I used Color Club "Speedy Top Coat". Thanks for reading! :)
