Happy Hump Day! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday, time flies. Before you know it, I’ll be 87 years old
Sephora has released some new Sephora by OPI colors which I think are pretty damn spectacular, if I do say so myself (which I just did). I didn’t get them all, but I do have six of ’em. I am missing Under My Trench Coat (and now wish I had ordered it) and of course the limited edition #212 wasn’t available when I ordered these but now is, poop! Now I’m just wondering when those pesky matte’s are going to be available!
As with most of the Sephora by OPI polishes I have reviewed in the past, the formula on these was really great. Totally creamy, opaque and almost all were two coaters. I love the brushes on these, they aren’t too wide or thin and the polish just flows perfectly off the tip. Peep them out!
Ocean Love Potion
Ocean Love Potion is a beautiful teal that leans towards the green side of teal. It’s creamy and totally fabulous. With so many teals out there I can see how some of you might not want yet another one, however this is different. Here are my comparisons: darker than Essie Greenport and less blue, lighter than Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money and not as dusty, darker than Dazzle Dry Casablanca and less blue and much lighter and less blue than Diamond Cosmetics Don’t Teal My Heart Away. Teal is one of my fav colors so I was totally happy with this one. This was two coats.
Set the Mood
Set the Mood is kind of hard to describe. Sephora’s website calls it a ‘metallic dark pink’, but I beg to differ. This doesn’t seem dark pink to me, more of a medium peachy pink. And the finish wasn’t metallic, more shimmery with flashes of gold. I like it whatever you might describe it as and it was two coats.
What a Broad
What a Broad is a super pretty royal purple creme. Yes we have seen a lot of purple cremes lately also, but I still like it. This was two coats.
Screen Test is a seriously pretty hot fuchsia shimmer that flashes purple. I totally love this even though it’s not my “norm” and I don’t have anything like it. This was two coats.
Dark Room is a Sephora Beauty Insider Exclusive, meaning you have to be a member of their Beauty Insider program to buy it. They describe Dark Room as a ‘smokey deep evergreen’ and that’s about right. It’s not forest green for sure. It has a lot of blue and grey to it with a very subtle shimmer. I totally LOVE this color but know some of you won’t because it doesn’t “look” green per se. It’s not a dupe to any of the other dark greens you have seen on my site either, which is fab. This was a little more sheer so I used three coats.
In the Shadows
In the Shadows, much to my surprise, might be my fav of all these! I expected a dark vampy chocolate brown but in fact this is much more. It’s darker than I thought and has that same very subtle shimmer that Dark Room has, which you don’t often find in a chocolate brown. Word of warning when applying this: let each coat dry thoroughly before adding another coat otherwise you will wind up with “bald spots” where the polish wipes off if its not dry. You can kind of see that on my ring finger towards the cuticle, it looks lighter there than the rest of the nail. This was three coats.
Which ones of these might you try out? If you want to check them out online, you can find them here or in Sephora stores. They retail for $9.00 each.
