OPI: Don’t Speak – Gwen Stefani

Oh Em Gee! Another gold leaf top coat! Take a look at OPI‘s Don’t Speak from the Gwen Stefani Collection (Holiday 2014):
opi - don't speak1It’s an 18k gold leaf top coat that is different from The Man With the Golden Gun and Pure. This one has gold leaf flakes along with fine gold shimmer running throughout. This is my favorite from the 3 mentioned. It has more depth due to the fine shimmer and is denser. The formula is perfect. No need to fish in the bottle, dab or replace the gold particles. This is one easy coat over ANNY’s Bloody Return.

It comes in a gold bottle that is packaged in a collectors box:opi - don't speak bottle2Gotta love this fancy box, especially if you’re a hoarder like me 😀

OPI: Skating On Thin-Island + My Voice Is A Little Norse

Hi everyone!

You’ve probably already seen OPI‘s newest collection for Fall, the Nordic Collection.
And again I wasn’t over the moon excited about the colors. Out of the twelve polishes I picked the four that really caught my eye. Here are the first two:opi - skating on thin ice-land - my voice is a little norseThe base is two coats of Skating on Thin Ice-Land, which is a purple cream. Not very special but I just love purple so I needed to have this one. The formula is great. This is two easy coats. To make this mani more interesting I created a glitter gradient with My Voice Is A Little Norse. This is a holographic top coat. It’s quite dense so I think this can be worn on it’s own with three (?) coats. opi - skating on thin ice-land - my voice is a little norse1Did you picked up polishes from this collection? Which one(s)?

OPI: The Sky’s My Limit – Mustang Collection

A while back OPI released their Mustang Collection, a collaboration with Ford. I wasn’t all to excited about the six polishes. To me there isn’t really something that we haven’t seen before. I couldn’t resist picking up The Sky’s My Limit though. Why? Well, Catch Me In Your Net is on my wish list for a long time and this one seems similar 😀

OPI – Coca Cola Collection

Have you seen that OPI has teamed up with Coca Cola to create their newest collection? I got all excited seeing promo pics. I was especially curious to the green/brown duo chrome. I feel like 90% of this collection is right up my alley. Red, pink, purple and duo chrome. Therefore I couldn’t resist on buying the entire 9 piece collection. Like that’s an excuse to buy more polish *ahum*… Let’s take a look!opi coca cola1opi - coca cola2Look at these beauties:opi - coca cola bottlesSwatches and review below! 😉

Enjoy your Sunday beauties! Will be back tomorrow 🙂

OPI – Sheer Tints

Have you spotted OPI‘s Sheer Tints already? At first I thought that they’re jellies. In some way, they are. They’re extremely sheer. The formula is thick and kinda gooey. I think you can easily create a sugar spun mani with these. And I think they’d be great for a jelly sandwich too! They come in four shades, pink, purple, yellow and blue. I picked up the pink and purple ones and decided to create a saran wrap mani:
opi - sheer tintsThis is Be Magentale With Me and Don’t Violet Me Down over a white base (ANNY: What else) plus top coat:opi - sheer tints1I’m happy with these and don’t regret that I didn’t also bought the other two shades. opi - sheer tints bottlesWhat do you think of the Sheer Tints?

OPI: Ruble For Your Thoughts

Here’s an oldie, Ruble For Your Thoughts from OPI’s Russian Collection 2007:OPI - Ruble For Your Thoughts1From the looks of the bottle it appears to have a slight color shift but sadly that doesn’t transfer very well on the nails. It is still a gorgeous shade though! The formula is thin and on the runny side. I found that it’s best to apply thin coats so I used three thin coats plus top coat here.

That’s all for today!

Pshhhttt… watch this place tomorrow because there will be a fun contest! 😀
