I have a very full post for you today 😀
I have another batch of Polishes I got for Xmas… Well 6 of them are presents and the other 2 were prizes from OPI South Africa. Only got them in Feb though, I couldnt wait until my long nails grew back so I swatched them on my medium length nails.
Out of all 8 polishes, Steady As She Rose is my favorite! Its from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection (2011). Its a soft Lavender with a nude twist. VERY appealing and I got so many compliments on the colour as well. I did 2 coats no Top Coat.
My mom bought me a Sparrow Midi Ring so I thought I might start adding it to my swatches… If I remember each time lol.
I Vant To Be A-Lone Star is from the Texas Collection (2011) and is stunningly soft blue with a beautiful shimmer.
It’s Totally Fort Worth It is also from the Texas Collection (2011) and is a silver shimmer polish with pink glitter. I am not sure if I am totally a fan of this one yet.
Lucky Lucky Lavender was one of the Nail Polishes I won as a prize from OPI a year ago… I swatched it back then but figured since I have improved and actually never wrote about it that I would just throw it in with this lot. Its from the Hong Kong Collection (2010). I personally find this polish to be pink rather than Lavender.
Planks A Lot is also from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection (2011). While googling this collection I noted that the entire collection, besides the silver crakle polish, is stunning! This polish is a darker than Steady as She Rose but a true Lavender comparison! Plus I am a purple girl all the way!
Kreme De La Kremlin is from the Russian Collection (2007) and is a dusty rose, I plan on doing a Comparison Post as it is very Similar to Revlon’s Colorstay 310 Vintage Rose & Essence 111 English Rose.
Is one of the rare Red Polishes I actually love! I always lean more to a Wine Red rather than a bright Red when Red Polish is concerned! Chick Flick Cherry is part of the OPI Classics Collection, I searched high and low to see other bloggers feelings on this polish and weirdly I couldn’t find a single post on it.
This is the other polish I won from OPI.
Excuse Moi! is from the Muppet’s Holiday Collection (2011) and for some reason people rave about it… Me personally, I don’t see what the big fuss is all about. Its pretty I will give you that but in my books its a pretty average glitter polish. Maybe if I top coated it I would feel differently. It has a multitude of various glitter but predominantly consists of of Silver and Pink glitters with smaller glitters in silver, gold, red, orange, green, pink and blue.
That’s almost all my Xmas prezzie polishes done. I have 6 more polishes coming in the following weeks.
All the Best
