NOTD: OPI Down the core-al from Neon collection

Hi sweeties! How are you?
Today I have one more Neon by OPI, called Down the core-al. Can you believe this colour?

 I have nothing remotely similar in my collection. It's a neon coral with a hint of (what shows to my eyes as) super secret kind-of-blue shimmer. Just check that out, amazing!

In the bottle it looks like regular neon creme, you'd never guess by looking at the bottle that there is shimmer in there. But when on the nail that subtle dude is visible and even more when the sun strikes the nails.

Formula is rather nice very similar to Life gave me lemons one. Drying time is rather short if you apply thin layers, and two coats will give an opaque and smooth result with a lovely semi-matte finish. My pictures are two coats over OPI put a coat on and without topcoat. you can always add a topcoat if you like it glossy or you want it to last longer.

 Down the core-al is one of my favourite of this collection together with Hotter than you pink. I slightly like the pink one better than the coral because of the matte texture, so pretty. But if you like neons OPI Down the core-al is definitely a must have, if you decide to pick it you won't be disappointed!

What do you think of this collection so far? Leave your comment, don't be shy!

  5. Bendiciones Amiga para ti y los tuyos.

  6. What a great color for summer! I haven't seen these neons in person yet around here but hoping they'll show up soon.

  7. Oh this is really really stunning!!! I love neon corals and that shimmer makes the Opi just that smidgen more unique! I am with you - the pink is that more special in a way - my solution would be: take both, haha but pink neons are not on my shopping list this season as I went a little bit crazy last year and bought a couple - ehem :-S! Have a lovely weekend my friend - bisous xxx
