Sephora by OPI Swatches

Good afternoon! Today I am bringing you some fabulous Sephora by OPI polishes I recently picked up. In case you don’t know, they have recently re-stocked all their polishes at Sephora, so what was once sold out, should now be available! Have AT IT! The formulas on these were all fantastic. No bubbles, no streakiness just smooth like glass. All pics taken in sun with no top coat.


Opening Night
Isn’t she lovely? First off let me say I LOVE this color on me, but hmmm have I seen it before somewhere? Why yes! In fact it’s a dupe for OPI’s Yoga-Ta Get This Blue! which you can see my swatches of here (scroll down to the bottom). So I would say don’t buy both if you have neither, but definitely get one if you have none! Oh and this was only two coats because it was super pigmented, fabulous no?

Meet For Drinks

Cranberry deliciousness! Meet For Drinks is just lovely. It’s a jewel toned deep red/pink with massive shimma. One thing to note, my pictures didn’t want to show the true color of this puppy for some reason. This pic shows it as pinker and slightly lighter than it really is. It’s definitely more reddish and deeper than this. This is two coats here.


I’m With Brad
Mmmmmm I’m With Brad. First off I would rather it be named I’m with David (as in Beckham) because Brad and Angelina Jo-Lip (as I like to call her) do nothing for me. But it IS named I’m With Brad so let’s just move past that, shall we? This color is freakin AWESOME! It’s a blackened deep red that is simply divine and looks like it’s *lit from within*. This one does go on a tad sheer at first so I needed three coats. Do you love?

If you have not already emailed me about winning a bottle of Chanel Haute Chocolat for Christmas, please do so by Monday December 15th at 10:00 am, Pacific! One lucky random winner will be announced that afternoon, good luck!

Vamp it up Peeps!

    I adore “I’m With Brad.” In a bitter twist of fate, I have a horrible ex named Brad. I don’t know if I could go around with his “name” on my nails.

    I’m With Brad is gorgeous. Can you think of any dupes of it? Or even anything remotely similar – doesn’t have to be an exact match.

    Hi Melanie – Hmm maybe pretend it’s “I’m with Brian” instead?

    Hi Atomica – Yes actually there are two that are similar, one which I
    haven’t swatched yet and one I did. Jessica’s Notorious hasn’t been
    swatched yet but it’s a very blackened deep ruby red. It’s darker than
    I’m With Brad. The other is Orly’s Take Him To The Cleaners which you
    can see here:

    Neither are exact dupes, both darker, but close!

    Thanks! Those dupes were a big help. As usual, lovely swatches! :)

    Woot! Grats girl, you deserve it :)

    Oops, the previous comment was meant for the post below lol. Anyway, thank you for the swatches. Meet For Drinks looks gorgeous.

    I love your swatches and the $ OPI colors are just lovely! I completely fell for Meet for Drinks and I was wondering if there are any dupes out there – perhaps Zoya Rihana, ChG Vertical rush, OPI I’ve red the script… Any thoughts?

    Hi Mimi,

    Thanks! I don’t have Vertical Rush or I’ve Red the Script so I can’t say about those, but it’s definitely not a dupe for Rihanna. Rihanna is much more pink rather than red.

    Thank you so much for such a prompt reply – I just had to ask about Rihana, because I saw a swatch (comparing Rihana and Meet for Drinks) on nailgal & they, to my surprise, looked identical. Looks, unfortunately, can be deceiving :) and it seems I’m back on the hunt for OPI’s dupe – there is just no way of buying it in Europe or on ebay, so if you (or any of the other ladies) ever come across/think of a polish that closely resembles it, I’d be most grateful.

    Hi Mimi,

    I will definitely keep you posted about Rihanna!

    How would you compare Meet For Drinks to Carolyn New York’s Mugged on The 6 Train? I just ordered the Carolyn one and I tried on the Sephora one in the store?

    Never mind..I just checked. Mugged On The 6 Train is darker.:-)
