My year is off to a busy start, but I managed to get in some swatching this weekend. I’m starting with two new OPIs from the Nicki Minaj Collection, Did It On ‘Em and Save Me. Did It On ‘Em is incredible, it totally beat out several Diors to be posted first!
Here’s another one of the OPI Muppet Glitters – Gone Gonzo is a clear base with tiny light blue glitter and silver hexagonal glitter. For a coordinating but darker base color, I tried Chanel’s Blue Rebel, one of the 2011 Fashion’s Night Out polishes.
I know it’s been a long time since I posted here – December has been busy for me! I started a new job and had to do some traveling, and I’ve been so sleepy in the evenings. I wanted to share wishes for a happy holiday season, and also pictures of another one of the OPI Muppet glitters.
Today I have swatches of the one glitter polish I’ve picked up from OPI’s Holiday 2011 Muppets Collection. Excuse Moi! is a rosy pink base full of lots of different colors and sizes of glitter.
Over this past weekend we had beautiful, sunny autumn weather. I had a chance to pull out the OPI Muppets Collection polishes and compare them against a few other polishes.
Today I have swatches of Pepe’s Purple Passion, another polish from OPI’s Holiday 2011 Muppets Collection. Despite the name I would call it a purplish red rather than an actual purple.
OPI’s Be A Dahlia Won’t You is my final polish review from the Nice Stems Collection from this summer. I have been saving these swatches for a Wednesday, since it’s a perfect pinky fuchsia!
OPI’s Animal-istic is a bright red with a hint of orange – it will be a great red for this holiday season. Swatches coming up!
OPI’s Holiday 2011 Muppets Collection is starting to turn up in stores, and today I have swatches of Warm & Fozzie.
Today I have swatches of one of the polishes from OPI’s Nice Stems Collection, which came out over the summer. Come to Poppy is a bright, shimmery pink-coral. Even though it’s been out for a while, it’s a perfect color for Pink Wednesday.
Just in case anyone is still looking for the Dior Electric Tropics Duos, they’re back up on the Dior website-they were Dior’s summer polishes, a bright orange and a neon pink jelly. These come in really nice packaging, and with their own full-size bottle of top coat, even though they cost just a bit more than a normal Dior polish. So it’s sort of like a good deal.
With all the interest in dark blue polishes lately, I pulled out an older OPI polish that has been mentioned as being very close to Dior’s new Tuxedo. OPI’s Yoga-ta Get This Blue is also a dark blue with lighter blue shimmer-keep reading for a Tuxedo vs. Yoga-ta Get This Blue comparison.
I think this is the ultimate pink combination–it’s the pinkest pink I think I’ve ever personally accomplished. It’s like a 12-year old girl birthday party overload of obnoxious pink, a from-the-invitations-to-the streamers type pink.
Today I have swatches of Road House Blues, from OPI’s Touring America Collection for fall. It fits right in with the dark blue polish moment that seems to be going on, and I was curious to see how it compared to a hard-to-find favorite, Sapphire in the Snow.
I’m still trying to fit in more summer polishes before switching over to all the darker fall colors, including this next one: Essie’s California Coral. It’s a slightly muted peachy pink take on coral that is still vibrant and pretty.
Today I have a couple of polishes from OPI’s flowery, pink-themed summer collection, Nice Stems. I had my eye on the sparkly topcoat I Lily Love You for a while, but it took a long time for this collection to pop up around here. I finally have swatches!
