Today I will be showing you the first half of my swatches of OPI’s new winter 2009 collection called Holiday Wishes.
Holiday Wishes is comprised of a lot of reds, and then quite a few interesting colors that I wouldn’t normally think OPI would do. The finishes are super cool and different on a lot of them.
As far as formula, these are all on the thicker side, but also nice and opaque in just two coats for most. Let’s take a peek!
Ginger Bells! is a, um, ginger colored creme? Don’t know how else to describe it! Kind of gingerbread cookie-esque. I actually really didn’t like it until the third coat, and I still kind of think it’s just meh. Maybe it just doesn’t look good on me. As I said, this was three coats.
Comet Loves Cupid is a pinkish/red creme. This is pretty, very flattering on my pale skin, but it doesn’t say “holiday” to me it says “spring” somehow. This was two coats.
Crimson Carol is a medium red jelly with red glitter. This most certainly looks like the holidays to me and I like it. This was two coats.
Dear Santa is Crimson Carol’s older, darker sister. She is more of a raspberry red jelly with glitter. This was two coats.
Meet & Jingle is a medium red shimmer. This one didn’t send shivers down my spine for originality, but it is still a pretty color. This was two coats.
Glove You So Much! is a deep burgundy/red shimmer, and it’s my favorite of all these here. This is vampy, shimmery, and it glows! This was two coats.
I will reserve judgement about this collection until I have swatched the other six colors. I wish I already had them for you tomorrow, but alas, the weather here has finally turned grey and dark, so I am having a hard time getting accurate swatches. I must do something about my indoor lighting situation ASAP!
What do you guys think about these so far, any takers?
These are available in stores and online now!
