OPI Neon Revolution Mini Set Swatches & Review

Hi guys, happy Friday! Anyone have big plans this weekend? I'm thinking about going and getting my hair chopped off, I'm really lazy about my hair so I tend to get it cut short then just let it grow long and get it cut again when I can't stand dealing with it anymore...I'm about at that point. I think I might go a bit short so it forces me to actually do my hair in the morning before work instead of just putting it all up in a mess bun.

Today I have swatches of the new OPI Neon Revolution Mini Set to share with you guys. This mini set comes with a white base polish, 4 neons, and a top coat...all mini sized! Check out the swatches & reviews after the jump!

The mini set comes with a white creme, named White Base, it is meant to go under each of the neons to help with the opacity and the vibrancy of the color. Unfortunately I really hated the formula of the white base...I'm sure it was just because of the brush in the mini bottle, but it was a pain and I gave up on it after trying to do 1 nail lol! For all the swatches in this post I used the neons over a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (which is the bottle I am holding in the photos), all photos are also with CND Air Dry as my top coat all all photos are in natural sunlight.

Blue It Out Of Proportion is a bright cobal blue. This is my favorite color wise in the mini set, I really don't think I will ever tire of blue like this (I'm even wearing a blue like it as I type this lol). The formula though was the trickiest of the mini set though, it was on the patchy and streaky side on the first and second coat...I used 3 coats to completely even it out.

Don't Say It- Yellow It! is a neon yellow. This was so much brighter on the nail than I thought it was going to be looking at the bottle, that was a nice surprise. The formula was surprisingly good, it wasn't streaky and the opacity was good over white. On its own you'd need a ton of layers to get it to this kind of color so I probably wouldn't bother trying. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Pink Outside The Box is a neon pink. This is a bit brighter in person, also brighter on the nail than it looked in the bottle like the previous polish. The formula was good, it was a little streaky on the first coat but 2 coats evened it out.

The Time Is Pow is a bright neon orange. This was a little bit more of a red toned orange than it looked in the bottle. The formula was good, no streaky or patchy issues. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

The OPI Neon Revolution Mini Set will be available in July for $19.95 ($24.95 CAN), you will be able to find it at authorized OPI retailers like Ulta, Beauty Brands, Chatters, Beauty First, JCPenny Salons, Dillards etc...


  1. Have you seen the sephora opi neon revolution? I think the only difference is the purple and blue.

  2. Well......I have to completely agree with you about the white "base", but I wasn't smart enuff to use a different white & I HATE my mani. I'll be lucky if I don't remove it after one day :O(

  3. I live in Philly. And I'm wondering where I can get a opi nail polish in a cheaper store! Do anyone who live in Philly know where the opi at ??????
