OPI Ford Mustang Collection Swatches and Review

OPI Ford Mustang Collection

The OPI Ford Mustang Collection celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang and introduces us to six new shades.

The collection is limited edition and available this month. Of course all the nail shades were inspired by the iconic Mustang and here are the official descriptions:

  • Race Red: The hero color of the collection, Race Red pays tribute to one of Mustang’s signature colors and brings to life the passion and excitement of the iconic car.
  • 50 Years of Style: Just like Mustang, celebrate all your milestones with this made-to-party golden pearl.
  • Queen of the Road: Inspired by Mustang’s dramatic and perfectly appointed cabin, a black interior evokes sophistication and will always be a classic – just like the little black dress.
  • Girls Love Ponies: A woman is multifaceted; this grown-up pink acts as a reminder of her femininity, even as she takes to the wheel of the powerful pony.
  • Angel with a Leadfoot: Drive up and say “halo” to this celestial white. Whether worn alone or as an accent, white is essential to a woman’s wardrobe and to making a statement.
  • The Sky’s My Limit: There is nothing like the freedom of the open road and shimmering, endless blue sky. This aqua hue awakens a woman’s sense of adventure and is a trend shade for summer going into the fall.

Nordic Collection by OPI Swatches & Review

Nordic Collection by OPI

The Nordic Collection by OPI for fall 2014 has arrived!

This new twelve-piece fall trends collection features shades inspired by the northern lights of Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway and colorful houses in Copenhagen. Since I have been on a hardcore Nordic obsession this past year, I am super excited about these shades.

Here is what Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the Co-Founder and Executive VP of OPI says about the collection ” While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region. ”

Man I wish I could have been there with her!

Coca-Cola by OPI Swatches & Review

Coca-Cola by OPI

Releasing next month is the Coca-Cola by OPI collection. This limited edition collection is the first time the two companies have joined up. They created nine shades, which are all influenced by different soda flavors in the Coca-Cola family.

I was super excited about this collection because I am and always have been a HUGE Coke fan. I’ve been drinking Diet Coke, Coke, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite and Fanta Orange as long as I have been alive and they have been out. I must confess, I am not a huge Fanta Grape fan, or any grape soda for that matter -it’s a little too cough-drop-y for me. But I have fond memories of my lunch in high school which often only included an ice cold Cherry Coke and a Milky Way (healthy, I know).

My house is divided though. Mr. VV insists Pepsi (blech) is better. NO WAY. Give me a Cherry or Vanilla Coke any day of the week. :)

Neons by OPI for Summer 2014

Neons by OPI

Neons by OPI is a new collection for summer 2014.

This is the first time they have added full-sized neon shades to their permanent collection, woo hoo! You can also get their Natural Nail Base Coat in Put a Coat On!, which is a white base coat that helps boost up the brightness of these neon colors.

I swatched all of these using the base coat and most of them were just two coats for great coverage. Some of them felt a little thick and I did have some minor issues with a few, which I’ll discuss below. They all dry with a matte finish, as neons do, so use a top coat to shine ‘em up.
