Today I have a review of the latest collection from O.P.I. Hot on the heels of the Hello Kitty collection comes a real mixture of bold shades.
As you can see from the above image this collection has something for everyone, wether you are a classic nude polish fan or love to make a statement, they have it covered. So let’s take a look at some swatches…
Show Us Your Tips – This is a pretty periwinkle with a subtle shimmer. At first glance the shimmer appears silver but after applying and seeing this dance in the light I noticed it sparkles pink and blue. To achieve full opacity I painted 3 thin coats. I could have gotten away with two but the smile line was still slightly showing.
Take a Right on Bourbon – Every polish collection needs a good silver! So if you are missing one, this could certainly fit the bill. It has a lovely metallic finish complete with brush strokes for added effect so paint carefully.
I’m Sooo Swamped! – In the bottle this looked like a kermit the frog kind of green, but out of the bottle it was a little darker and a dirtier green. I guess the name says it all really 😜 I am not so keen on this one but I am sure I will find a use for it in my nail art.
So overall I definitely recommend this collection. The cremes are fantastic quality going on perfectly in 2 coats and really good at self levelling. They dry with a good gloss finish too like most gel effect polishes. The shimmers are subtle but I am sure in the summer sun will come into their own. The variety of colours is really good as well covering a broad range of the spring/ summer palette.
Which colour is your favourite? Xoxo
