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!Look at these beauties:Swatches and review below! 😉
Today I have an oldie to show you. Diva of Geneva belongs to the Fall 2010 Collection by OPI, which sadly is discontinued. What an amazing color ha! I used two coats plus top coat. This has a perfect formula.Just a quick post today because the weather is lovely here and I want to take advantage of it 🙂
Enjoy your Sunday beauties! Will be back tomorrow 🙂
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:
This is Be Magentale With Me and Don’t Violet Me Down over a white base (ANNY: What else) plus top coat:I’m happy with these and don’t regret that I didn’t also bought the other two shades. What do you think of the Sheer Tints?
Here’s an oldie, Ruble For Your Thoughts from OPI’s Russian Collection 2007:From 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! 😀
So it looks like it’s Gwen Stefani week over here 😀 Along with Over & Over A-Gwen and Hey Baby I also picked up 4 In The Morning:Amazeballs, it’s a gunmetal grey hue with a semi-matte satin finish. Yay! At first, I thought this polish would made all the imperfections of my nails very noticeable, but it doesn’t. Thumbs and toes up for that! I used two thin coats with no top coat (doh!) here. I think I could have got away with one more generous coat though. I added some studs on my accent nail and think this looks kinda cool, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
Here’s another shade of OPI’s Gwen Stafani Collection! This is Hey Baby, a gorgeous barbie pink cream polish:Personally I could never have enough reds, purples and pinks. So yes, I love this! The formula is, as with most OPI’s that I’ve tried, great. No streaky-ness 🙂 I used two coats plus top coat here.
As mentioned in yesterday’s post I picked up three polishes from this collection. Can you guess which other shade I couldn’t resist of buying?
Happy lazy Sunday lovelies!
I’m so excited about the new Gwen Stefani Collection by OPI! Although I absolutely adore all the polishes of this collection I picked up three *patting myself on the shoulder*. The one I’m most excited about is the signature shade, Over & Over A-Gwen. Why? It’s a bright red cream 😀 That one just needed to be mine. As with The Man With The Golden Gun and Pure this comes in a box, along with studs and glue.The formula of this polish is great. I used two easy coats plus top coat here. It really doesn’t need top coat though. It has an amazing shine all by itself. For the studs I didn’t used the glue that came with this polish. Simply because I don’t like to have glue on my nails. So I just placed them on my nail when the top coat was still wet. Every nail polish enthusiast needs a good red cream in their stash, don’t you think?! This could easily be one of my favorites! Love love love!
Did you pick up any polishes from this collection?
Do you also have lemmings you’re pretty sure of that they’ll never be killed? I have… lots actually. La Boheme by OPI is one of them. Finally I managed to get my hands on it. Woot woot!La Boheme is part of the Holiday on Broadway Collection (2003). It has the ‘old’ style long thin brush. Formula is on the thin side and therefore slightly runny, but with a little more precise attention while applying that didn’t gave me any problems. I am absolutely loving this polish. LOVE I tell ya!
This is two coats plus top coat: Continue reading
OPI has added two gorgeous polishes to their Designer Series Collection: Raw Granite. These both have a satin-isch textured finish and have a great formula. Their not as gritty as the Liquid Sand polishes. Let’s take a closer look to these pretties!
First of all… I didn’t picked up the entire San Francisco Collection that OPI has recently released. I’ve only picked the ones that really caught my eye *patting myself on the shoulder*. So besides Alcatraz…Rocks and Peace & Love & OPI this one, Muir Muir on the Wall caught my attention:This is a blackened purple hue with lots and lots of gorgeous shimmer. At different angles I can even spot a slight brown/gold duo chrome in it 🙂 The formula is lovely. The first coat is sheer but a second coat makes it completely opaque. This is two coats, no top coat!
Isn’t it gorgeous?!
