Sephora by OPI Nail Colour Fall 2010 Swatches & Review

Happy Saturday folks!

As you may have heard Sephora by OPI has their new fall collection out on their website already. It looks like they have about nine new colors and I bought four of the ones that looked the most interesting to me.

I wound up being pretty pleased with three of the four. I was a little worried because some of them were described as “sheer” but they really are only sheer if you use one coat.

The formula was pretty decent. The metallic ones were a wee bit streaky but not too bad. They all were only two coats with one exception.

Go My Own Way

Go My Own Way is a kind of dusty blue metallic teal with light blue shimmer. This reminds me of the ocean. It’s an unusual blue, which makes it fairly unique for me. I liked it even though it was a little streaky. This was two coats.

Studs & Stilettos

Studs & Stilettos is described as a “metallic mahogany” and it’s also got a silver ribbon of shimmer running through it. I am very partial to medium & dark browns for some reason, and I really like this one a lot. This was two coats.

Just a Little Dangerous

Just A Little Dangerous is an amethyst purple with pink shimmer. GORGEOUS. If you only get one, this is the one to get; it’s stunning. This was two coats.

Already Famous

Already Famous is a taupe/gold with silver, gold and other colored micro-glitter. I wasn’t thrilled with this one to be honest. The color is ok, but a little thin on the color impact and opacity for me. This was one of the ones described as “sheer” so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised! This was three coats.

Here are all the new colors out now:

You can find these on Sephora’s website now and they are $9.00 each.

Which ones are calling your name?

    I really like the brown one, I love brown polishes so I’ll probably pick that one up. I really like that blob of Dating The Drummer too, look like it might be an interesting color.

    I own Dating the Drummer, Studs & Stilettos and Club Scene Queen. I haven’t tried the last two, but I was a little disappointed in Dating the Drummer. The shimmer only showed up in the brightest sunlight. Otherwise, it probably looks a lot like Studs & Stilettos. I was hoping Already Famous would be more grey/silver so I’m glad that I didn’t get that one!

    Not really impressed with this collection. I don’t have any OPI or Sephora for OPI and wanted to try it though. I might get Do I Know You but it reminds me of Eyeko’s Tea Rose nail polish which I was sent to try out.

    I like Go My Own Way and Just a Little Dangerous! Dating the Drummer looks like it might be pretty also. Already Famous doesn’t really look like a pewter to me.

    I like Just A Little Dangerous, but the color looks awfully familiar (which is why I like it, of course!). I think I’m going to wait for comparison swatches to see if it’s different enough that I have to have it!

  • July 24, 2010

    I feel like I’ve seen versions of Go My Own Way in all of OPI’s various brands in the recent collections…Sephora, Nicole, & regular…enough already with the teal shimmer!! Just kidding, I like the color. The purple is striking…and the mahogany, too. We’ll see…Beautiful swatches, as always!

  • July 24, 2010

    I like Go My Own Way and Just A Little Dangerous. I’m not into browns on me and Already Famous looks pretty typical. They look cute, but not must-have cute for someone like me on nail polish rations haha

    Just a little dangerous looks like Color Club – Electronica, no?

    • July 24, 2010

      Hi Kensey,

      A little bit, but I think Electronica is more of a blurple base, rather than purple.

    when do u do a swatch do u use a topcoat?
    your nails are sooo pretty

    • July 24, 2010

      Hi Allison,

      Nope, I never use a top coat in my swatches unless I am showing a matte color with and without one, and I always say if I do.

  • July 24, 2010

    Great colors! I really like Studs & Stilettos, Dating the Drummer, Rock His World, and Just A Little Dangerous. I like Sephora by OPI far more than the regular OPI!

    i like the glitter one, the others i think i’ll pass on. the brown is nice, despite reminding me of poop at first 😉

  • July 25, 2010

    Not keen. Studs and Go Own Way look marginally streaky/brushstrokey which I know must be the fault of the polishes because Kelly does beautiful nails and Famous looks like it has tip wear which it can’t have as it’s just a swatch.

    So that tells me the formula isn’t great. Avoid.

    Club Scene Queen is a dupe for Zoya Kotori. Cool color but I could have done with just one of them:)

  • July 26, 2010

    Dating the Drummer looks fun….

  • July 27, 2010

    Just A Little Dangerous is screaming “buy me”. I haven’t been on the website for awhile. Looks like I may be visiting.

  • July 28, 2010

    I went to Sephora to try on Just A Little Dangerous and Already Famous. they didn’t have them out on display yet b/c they didn’t get all the colors in yet, but they let me try them out anyway :-). I just bought already is kinda meh..
