Yes this post is very late for me, but I am pretty sure you will like it. 🙂
I just received the much anticipated OPI Shrek Forever After collection today, and I had to show you!
For once I also included some comparison swatches. This won’t be a regular thing for me because A. I don’t have time and B. I don’t sort my polishes by color so it’s really hard to go through them all and find possible dupes. But I thought you might like to see them for this collex since many of you are eager to see these!
The formula on these was really pretty nice. They were a little streaky when applying but after a few seconds they evened out and leveled out nicely. I used three coats on all of these except one, which is noted below.
Peep out Shrek below!
What’s With The Cattitude? is a pale sky blue creme. It’s extremely flattering for my skin tone and I really liked it. Surprisingly I didn’t have very many blues to compare it to!
They look pretty similar in the bottle.
As you can see What’s With The Cattitude?, is slightly more pale blue than Bahamian Escape. I don’t have any dupes, yay!
Who The Shrek Are You? is a bright yellow/green creme. I know a lot of people might think this looks like baby barf but I LOVE this color, and it happens to work with my skin tone. I think it’s fabulous but not quite totally unique…
Yup, these are most definitely dupes. To my eye there really was no difference between them as far as color. Even the application of these was similar, I used three coats for both. So I say if you already own Misa’s Green With Envy, you can skip out on this one.
Ogre-The-Top Blue is a bright medium blue creme. This was super pigmented and I only needed two coats. I thought I was going to have 4 or 5 like this but I had a hard time finding anything to compare it to. But I did find something!
CND’s Anchor Blue was the only thing I had that even came close, and you can see it’s a darker shade of blue. No dupes for me here!
Rumple’s Wiggin’ is a very pale lavender creme. I love everything lavender because it always works with my skin and it’s such a pretty color. Again though I was worried I already owned this, so I searched through my collection and good news!
These two are the closest ones to Rumpl’s Wiggin’ I had in my collection, and neither are dupes. Nubar’s Lavender is a darker lavender and China Glaze’s Agent Lavender has more white in it and is paler.
Funkey Dunkey is a fabulous bright grape purple creme. I love this color but felt it was familiar. Turns out this was the one I had the most colors like in my collection. A couple of them were basically dupes for all intents and purposes.
As you can see these are all extremely similar to each other. It might be hard to tell but RBL Mismas was the only one that looked very different. It’s a smidge darker and has more royal purple in it. But Funkey Dunkey is super close to China Glaze’s Grape Pop and Orly Charged Up. The great thing about Grape Pop is it’s incredibly opaque in just one coat. On the other hand, Charged Up goes on really sheer and kind of watery so you need three. There are tiny differences between all of these but for most people I think it’s going to be so close, they won’t want yet another grape purple creme.
Fiercely Fiona is a soft pale yellow with a little green. I loved this color so much. It’s the most unique of the collection, I think, and flattering. For a yellow I didn’t have as many issues applying it as most others. It was streaky but turned out fine after three coats.
I have no comparisons for this! I literally couldn’t find a single color that even remotely looked like this.
Overall I am extremely happy with this collection even though a few do have dupes. I think it’s a fun and cheery collection and perfect for summer.
These should be available in May!
Ok I wanna know what you guys think about these, let’s hear it!
