My obsession with chartreuse began last summer. It started with a dress (you can see the fabric here). Then it extended to shoes (that you can see here). When I saw the promo images for the 2014 OPI Neon collection Life Gave Me Lemons immediately caught my eye. Could it be the perfect chartreuse, neon? I think so!
Life Gave Me Lemons is a vibrant, chartreuse creme. It’s bright but it’s not too in your face. I love the color in a pretty – ugly kind of way.
That being said, I was out with the boy and of course I had to tell him how much I liked the nail polish I was wearing. He asked what it was called so I told him Life Gave Me Lemons. His reply? “I would have called in neon green.” Men. I swear.
The formula is actually good. I did not use this polish over a white base and found that 3, thin coats gave me an opaque, even color.
As always, there are swatches under the jump!
