OPI Nordic Collection Fall/Winter 2014 ♥ Swatches & Review

t’s almost August… are you thinking about Fall yet?  If not, the OPI Nordic Fall/Winter 2014 Collection will get you there!  The OPI Nordic Collection is filled with warm browns and rich plums, exactly what I think of for Autumn.  There are some great transition shades too – a bright pink, a delicious orange, a fun purple and a jade green!  I love that 10 of the 12 shades are crème!
 
So that I don’t repeat myself, all swatches below are two coats of color plus top coat.
 
OPI My Dogsled is a HybridOPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid
 
My Dogsled is a Hybrid is a smooth, creamy green that is more jade than mint, which makes it stand out in my collection.  I could not find any dupes!  The formula was perfect too, which cannot be said for some of the mint greens in my collection.
 
OPI Can't Afjord Not ToOPI Can't Afjord Not To
 
Can’t Afjord Not To is a fun melon orange.  I love that I can wear this shade “now” without it feeling “too fall.”  The formula was thin but controllable (meaning it didn’t flood my cuticles).
 
OPI Going My Way or NorwayOPI Going My Way or Norway?
 
Going My Way or Norway? is a light warm-toned tan shade.  I really didn’t think I would like this one, but once I got it on it was more flattering than I thought it would be!  The first coat was thin but not at all patchy.  I was impressed that it only needed two coats.
 
OPI Ice-Bergers & FriesOPI Ice-bergers & Fries
 
Ice-bergers & Fries is a warm-toned medium brown.  Once again, I am not drawn to shades like this, but I liked it once it was on my tips!  Again, the formula was thin but only needed two coats.
 
OPI How Great is your DaneOPI How Great is your Dane?
 
How Great is your Dane? is an elegant cool-toned dark brown… much more my speed!
 
OPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holmOPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm?
 
Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm?  I don’t know if they have this color in Stockholm, but they should!  This purple is everything!!!
 
OPI Thank Glogg It's FridayOPI Thank Glogg It's Friday!
 
Thank Glogg It’s Friday! is the obligatory red shimmer.  I don’t think this collection needed it.
 
OPI Skating on Thin IcelandOPI Skating on Thin Iceland
 
Skating on Thin Iceland is a rich aubergine.  The first coat went on light, but the color deepened on the second coat.
 
OPI Viking in a Vinter VonderlandOPI Viking in a Vinter Vonderland
 
Viking in a Vinter Vonderland is a wonderful deep purple.  I would call it vampy, but it felt more elegant than that.  The formula was thin but easy to apply.
 
OPI My Voice is a Little Norse (over Skating on Thin Iceland)OPI My Voice is a Little Norse (over Skating on Thin Iceland)
 
My Voice is a Little Norse (over Skating on Thin Iceland) is a textured silver holographic glitter in a grey base. 
 
OPI My Voice is a Little Norse (over Viking in a Vinter Vonderland)OPI My Voice is a Little Norse (over Viking in a Vinter Vonderland)
 
My Voice is a Little Norse (over Viking in a Vinter Vonderland)
 
OPI What A Nice Finn-ishOPI Suzi Has A Sweet Tooth
 
What A Nice Finn-ish is a bronze-leaning gold frost.  Not my cup of tea, but I liked that it didn’t show brushstrokes.
 
Suzi Has A Sweet Tooth is a bright Barbie pink.  It felt slightly out of place to me with the rest of the collection.
 
 
 
When I first saw promo pictures of this collection, I admit I was underwhelmed.  When I think of Nordic, I think of mountains, ice, and downhill skiing, so I thought this collection would be cool blues, icy silvers and frosty whites.  Don’t get me wrong – it’s a fabulous fall collection… it’s just the name that doesn’t fit!
 
My favorites from this collection are My Dogsled is a Hybrid, Can’t Afjord Not To, Viking in a Vinter Vonderland and  Do You Have This Color in Stock-holm?

OPI Mustang Collection 2014: Swatches to Get Your Motor Running

You’ll never guess what I got! Okay, maybe you will. Maybe it’s those swatches of all six shades from the OPI Mustang 2104 Collection – you know, the ones you’ve been waiting for?

opi mustang 2014 = vroom vroom

We’re looking at the 2014 OPI Limited Edition Ford Mustang Collection. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this Ford/OPI collaboration but it’s the first time it’s been the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang. To celebrate, there’s a brand new bunch of shades to make your fingernails look really, really fast. Or not fast, just awesome.

OPI Angel with a Leadfoot Mustang 2014OPI Mustang 2014 OPI Angel with a Leadfoot: Wait, a white? Yes! A white! And it’s an extraordinary white! This is the white to end my love affair with all other whites. The formula on this is absolutely genius. That’s two incredibly easy coats. Did I mention it was fantastic? Did I mention it’s now my Best White Ever? It is. Best.

OPI Queen of the Road Mustang 2014 no top coatOPI Mustang 2014 OPI Queen of the Road: Oooh. Wait – is that a satiny finish on a deep green-tinged espresso black? I think it is! How lovely! How daring in an automobile colour, OPI!

OPI Queen of the Road Mustang 2014 w top coatOPI Mustang 2014 Queen of the Road with topcoat: Lookit how it shimmers if you add some top coat. Top coat is one of my very good friends.

OPI Girls Love Ponies Mustang 2014OPI Mustang 2014 OPI Girls Love Ponies: My press release says “this grown-up hot pink has horsepower to spare”. I admit to knowing nothing about horsepower except that if horsepower was coloured pink, it should be this exact pink. Gimmie That.

OPI Race Red Mustang 2014OPI Mustang 2014 OPI Race Red: I’m putting it on and I’m thinking to myself “holy crap this colour is awesome”. I mean, look at it! It’s orange but it’s red. It’s like a poppy orange. Except it’s red. No, orange. And it looks really fast! Like a Mustang! Gah! Gorgeousness! Oh, also, it’s a OCW!!! Yep, one generous coat and you’re done.

OPI 50 Years of Style Mustang 2014OPI Mustang 2014 OPI 50 Years of Style: It’s streaky. I don’t like streaks. But it’s party-time gold too. And shiny. And also not for me. But hey! There’s also this…

OPI The Sky's My Limit Mustang 2014OPI Mustang 2014 OPI The Sky’s My Limit: What can I really say about this beautiful sparkly blue concoction that my 1000 words of photo doesn’t? Only that it takes two easy coats to get exactly what you see there. Stunning, huh? OPI makes some really great stuff. Consistently.

Your skin will soak up all the refreshingly smooth goodness of the OPI Skin Quencher, leaving you with renewed, softer and more silky skin. The moisturiser has a luxurious, tropical blend of softening coconut, hydrating melon extracts, enriching vitamin C, nourishing avocado and healing aloe vera. The OPI Avojuice Coconut Melon Juicie Skin Quencher is absorbed quickly, leaving your skin with a fragrant, smooth and non greasy feel.

OPI New Collection » Spotlight On Glitter

OPI New Collection » Spotlight On Glitter

Image

Glitter takes center stage with the launch of Spotlight on Glitter, a new collection of OPI’s best and brightest sparkling lacquers. The line showcases OPI’s most popular metallic and holographic lacquers in rainbow, gold, silver and pink iridescent confetti; these glitters may be worn alone or layered over any nail color for a dazzling effect. “Glitter isn’t just for wearing on New Year’s Eve! Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean you can’t still wear sparkle,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “Try creating an ombré effect or accent nails by adding a layer of sparkle for a fun night on the town.”

Blush Hour

 

Coverage: Another densely packed glitter, worn here over OPI: WANT TO BITE MY NECK?

Glitter Composition: This glitter is packed with fushia, purple, pink and silver medium size hexes, and small squares and hexes. There are also micro dark purple glitter suspended throughout the jelly base that would be really visible on a lighter base coat. I kind of ‘cheated’ on this swatch. I applied my usual 1-2 coats of glitter for the swatch but I couldn’t help but imagine how stunning this glitter would look layered on, so that’s what I did. This is about 4 coats of the glitter. I took so many pictures of this polish that I’ll probably end up doing a dedicated feature down the line of BLUSH HOUR. I guess I’ve already given away my favorite!.

Blush Hour
Sorry, gotta blush… this super dense fuchsia glitter is way too charming.

OPI - Blush Hour

Chasing Rainbows

Coverage: I can’t stop staring at this bottle of glitter that could be pared with absolutely ANY color. I chose to wear it on top of OPI: HAVEN’T THE FOGGIEST to really bring out the metallic feel of this glitter. Another densely packed polish.

Glitter Composition: Take your pick – rainbow (orange, yellow, silver, green, fushia, light blue) square and hex glitter in various sizes. A true bombshell of a polish!

Chasing Rainbows
Your pursuit of gorgeous has won you this rainbow with pot-of-gold highlights.

OPI - Chasing Rainbows

Desperately Seeking Sequins

Coverage: Applied in two thin layers, worn here over OPI MOD ABOUT YOU. Had to mix the bottle around to get the heavier hex glitter.

Glitter Composition: Silver hexes, micro glitter and thin bar glitter (the bar glitter is similar to Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat).

Desperately Seeking Sequins
This prismatic glitter on a backdrop of shimmer is just what you’re looking for.

OPI - Desperately Seeking Sequins

I Reached My Gold!

Coverage: Worn here over OPI: MY VAMPIRE IS BUFF. I love gold and off-white together.

Glitter Composition: 3 sizes of gold hex glitter. Had to fish a little for the larger pieces, but OPI didn’t skimp and there are plenty to be caught!

I Reached My Gold!
The cache of gold confetti in this clear rainbow glitter is all yours!

OPI - I Reached My Gold

 

Rose of Light

Coverage: Densely packed rose gold glitter worn here over OPI DON’T PRETZEL MY BUTTONS.

Glitter Composition: Rose gold hexes, micro glitter and smaller glitter squares. Perfect glitter to base ratio for an intense look. The pictures don’t do this glitter justice as the color is truly rose gold.

Rose of Light
A million points of light radiate from this rosy gold and rainbow sparkle.

OPI - Rose Of Light

You Pink Too Much

Coverage: Perfect glitter to base ratio Worn here over OPI: FRENCH QUARTERS FOR YOUR THOUGHTS.

Glitter Composition: Pink hexes and micro pink glitter.

You Pink Too Much
I’m obsessed with this rosy glitter set in a shimmery base.
