You know you’re in the midst of summer when you’re craving neon nails! I’m a little neon obsessed so the idea of a hot neon manicure is right up my alley.

Have you worked with neon nail polishes before? If yes, you’ll know that they can be a challenge as they can be: streaky, patchy, watery, too thin etc. In the world of neon polishes, there are only a few that work amazingly well (formula and vibrancy). I posted my favourite neon polish a couple of years ago and nothing has really come close since. OPI tru neon, OPI neons, neon nail polish

OPI Tru Neons

Neons are making a fashion comeback, and OPI recently released the OPI Tru Neons, a collection of six vibrant nail lacquer shades. As with most neon polishes, they are brighter and better when paired with a white base coat. OPI Tru Neons comes with its own white base coat “Put a Coat On”, but if you have a white nail polish, it works just as well.OPI tru neon, OPI neons, neon nail polishNeon nail polishes are notoriously difficult to photograph (they are never as neon in photos as they are in real life) but above I’m showing you the difference between the OPI Tru Neons with and without white undies. Take my word for it, that they’re brighter WITH, aside from the green (Green Come True) and blue (Correctamundo), where I didn’t see a huge difference.OPI tru neon, OPI neons, neon nail polish, yellow neon nails, yellow nails, No Faux YellowOPI tru neon, OPI neons, neon nail polish, yellow neon nails, yellow nails, No Faux Yellow

It’s bright, but neon? Not really. You do have to be careful with application as well, because the formula can be a little streaky if you applied evenly.

    Thank you so much for reviewing these! I have been on a hunt for yellow nail polish summer! I bought OPI I Just Can’t Copa-cabana and My Twin Mimmy, and both were too gold for my taste. I bought LA Colors Gel Shine in Hooray; and although it is the exact color I want, the formula is so streaky and awful. I was hoping OPI would come out with a brighter, more neon lemon yellow. Thanks to your review, I will be running to my local Sally’s to buy this and to take advantage of their Buy One, Get One Free sale on nail polishes. Now I just gotta choose my second color!
