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! πŸ˜‰

OPI: Diva of Geneva

Today I have an oldie to show you. Diva of Geneva belongs to the Fall 2010 Collection by OPI, which sadly is discontinued.Β opi - diva of genevaWhat an amazing color ha! I used two coats plus top coat. This has a perfect formula.opi - diva of geneva1Just a quick post today because the weather is lovely here and I want to take advantage of it πŸ™‚

Enjoy your Sunday beauties! Will be back tomorrow πŸ™‚

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: 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! πŸ˜€

OPI: 4 In The Morning – Gwen Stefani Collection

So it looks like it’s Gwen Stefani week over here πŸ˜€ Along with Over & Over A-Gwen and Hey Baby I also picked up 4 In The Morning:opi - 4 in the morningAmazeballs, 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!

OPI: Hey Baby – Gwen Stefani Collection

Hi everyone!

Here’s another shade of OPI’s Gwen Stafani Collection! This is Hey Baby, a gorgeous barbie pink cream polish:opi - hey babyPersonally 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 πŸ™‚ 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?

OPI: Over & Over A-Gwen – Gwen Stefani Collection

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 πŸ˜€ That one just needed to be mine.Β opi - over over a-gwen bottleAs with The Man With The Golden Gun and Pure this comes in a box, along with studs and glue.opi - over over a-gwen bottle1opi - over over a-gwen bottle2The 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.Β opi - over over a-gwenEvery 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?

OPI: La Boheme – Holiday on Broadway 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!opi-la-boheme-bottleLa 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:opi-la-boheme-swatch1 Continue reading

OPI: Muir Muir on the Wall – San Francisco Collection 2013

Hi lovelies!

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:OPI - Muir Muir on the WallThis 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 πŸ™‚ 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?!
