OPI Life gave me lemons

When OPI announced they were releasing a Summer collection consisting entirely out of neon polishes, I was over the moon! I love a good neon and during the Summer months I wear them a lot. The first pictures looked really good and so did the first swatches, so I ordered a couple to start with.

OPI Life gave me lemons is a bright very green tinted yellow. The green is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail, but next to a true yellow, it's still looking very greenish.


The formula was ok, it's a little on the thin side and a bit streaky, but flowed on the nail really easily somehow. I needed 3 thin coats to get it fully opaque on all nails, but it dried so fast, 3 coats was a breeze. The finish is semi matte, so I'd recommend a good top coat for a nice shine.


I love this color so much, it's bright and vibrant and unlike any other yellow I own, but neon it's not! I've tried this with a white base and without and to be honest, I didn't see any difference. These pictures are without the white base and as you can see, the color still pops. Adding the white base also didn't help with the streakiness, so I's day you're better off skipping it.


I can't wait to try the other polishes I got from this collection, they look so good in the bottle and if this one says anything about the rest, I'm going to love every single one of them!

What's your favorite OPI Neon?
