Hi everyone! I have a couple of color themed SPAM posts left, but then I should be through most of my swatch pics! And I told you earlier, I am working on How I wore it posts, and there is a whole bunch of them following soon.
Nicole by OPI Iceberg Lotus. It is gorgeous. It’s turquoise, it’s sparkly, shiny, even though it isn’t really duo chrome as one would expect from the look of the bottle. I am happy to have this in my collection! 2 coats.
Sephora by OPI Carribean Cocktail is a medium blue metallic polish, interspersed with golden foil particles. It looks much better in the bottle than on me, but I enjoyed wearing it nevertheless. 2 coats (and it didn’t work very well for stamping, I must add).
OPI See ya later Sailor was also on my wish list for a longer time, but when I got it I was surprised by how sheer and not duo chrome it is. I layered it over Catrice New York, which you can see on its own here. 1 coat of See ya later sailor over New York.
Quite the opposite happened to me when I got my hands on OPI Sonic Bloom. I love it. I’m wearing it over Catrice New York as well, and look how pretty it is! I love it! Deeply!
OPI Ski teal we drop is a dark teal creme. It was amongst my first OPIs, and it is gorgeous for layering too. There’s really nothing I could complain about with this polish – I think everyone needs something like it in their stash! 2 coats.
OPI Teal the Cows come home was a polish I bought in my blue phase. I expected much more from it than just being an aqua colored, slightly streaky polish. Not my cup of tea, unfortunately. Also, it took four thin coats to be opaque!
OPI Yodel me on my cell is another polish from the Swiss Collection, and it’s a lighter, shimmery version of Ski Teal we drop. I like it, but not outstandingly much. 2 coats.
OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise is a polish I received as a gift from my friend E. I love unexpected polish gifts! It looks like the child of NOPI Iceberg Lotus (above) and OPI Teal the cows come home (also above). I very much wanted to like it, as it was a gift, but it’s not my color. Nevertheless, very sparkly, ver shiny and no visible brush strokes! 2 coats.
OPI Breathe life (again over Catrice New York) is a super sheer light blue shimmer polish. It looks very nice over greys and blues, and it obviously works over black too. It’s more opaque than the CND topcoats, and if you have the patience of applying multiple coats, you can wear it on its own. I like it better than See ya later, sailor (above) but not as much as Sonic Bloom (also above). 1 coat.
Go on Green, also from OPI, is another sheer polish, but unlike Breathe Life it leans more towards turquoise. The brush strokes show up a bit more too, but it has this amazing glow about it which I really adore. 1 coat over Catrice New York.
So that was a huge blue and turquoise spam post! Do you have favorites out of the ones I showed you?
