OPI Outrageous Neons Mini Set Swatches!

Hi guys! Today I have swatches of the OPI Outrageous Neons Mini Set to show you! The mini set comes with 4 mini sized polishes, a mini white base polish and a mini top coat. I'm usually not a fan of the OPI mini's, I find that they are very hard to use because the brush is so tiny...but I couldn't resist this set!



Click the read more button below to see swatches & reviews of each shade.

For all swatches below I used 2 coats of the white base (which is literally called, White Base), followed by 2 coats of the polish and a coat of top coat. It's what the box said to do so that's what I did :)


Formidably Orange is a very red toned orange. I don't think I would call it coral but I wouldn't call it a straight up orange either...it's a strange color. This one was a bit streaky on the 1st coat over white but it evened itself out nicely on the 2nd coat.



Shade


Ridiculously Yellow is a bright neon yellow. Of the whole collection this is the only one (in my opinion) that is bright enough to be a neon. It's not as eye searing as something like Orly Glowstick but it's a nice one nonetheless. The formula was nice, a little streaky on the first coat but nice on the 2nd!

This one is much brighter in person than in photos!




Shade


Riotously Pink is a bright hot pink. I do like this one but it reminds me up a less opaque version of Essie Lights. The formula was really nice, not streaky at all. This one is also brighter in real life but not so bright that you have to squint to look at your nails out in the sun haha.





Shade

Seriously Purple is seriously purple ha! I love the color of this one but there were serious formula issues, it was super streaky which you can see in the photos. Beautiful color but it's disappointing that the formula would require several coats to even out and all you have is the tiny mini bottle :(

  4. I love neons especially the pink one but I think I'm on neon overload. I have the china glaze and orly neons so I'm still not sure if I'm going to pick these up. I wish they were sold these separately. Great swatches as always.

  6. Not really excited about this, I think after China Glaze's amazing neon collection I'm all neoned out. I always like to get mini bottles when I can, but I agree that OPI mini bottles are super hard to work with, plus they seem to be extra mini compared to other mini's such as Orly.

  10. i love mini polishes..
    and applying a white coat before using neon colors seems a good Idea, will try tomorrow!!!


    these colors looks cool only under the light, in the shade looks like any other polish, you know, nothing special about it..

  17. Saw these in the OPI for Sephora Neon collection - Agree with AS - they really look the same. They were not at all worth the price for my taking. I have a whole bag full of neons now and am saturated.

  23. They are removed because people like to spam my comments with links to their blog even though I clearly ask them not to :/

  24. I am not a fan of the OPI mini bottles either, mainly because you don't really get any polish out of the bottles. These colors are really pretty though.
