Today I’ve got the new Sephora by OPI colors for summer 2010. Well I have 4 out of 6 of them at least.
I have reviewed a lot of colors in this line by now and overall I really think the polish is pretty nice. I do wish they were less expensive and I am not fond of the bottle shape, but I can’t control everything I suppose.
The formula on these was pretty decent. I did have some clumping at the tip with one of them, but I think that was more my fault for applying too thick and fast rather than the polishes fault.
Read My Palm is yep, you got it, a mint green creme. What can I say, it’s pretty, flattering and opaque in two coats. It has a slightly dusty effect compared to some other mint greens I have. I love it. I think I am going to have to add this and yet another mint green I got yesterday to another mint green post soon!
Caribbean Cocktail is a deep blue with gobs of silver micro-glitter. I dunno, I kinda liked it but also kinda felt it was blah and boring. I think I have too many similar that’s why. This was two coats.
Teal We Meet Again is a gorgeous jewel-toned sea-blue shimmery duochrome. It flashes green and purple. The duochrome isn’t super noticeable on the nail as much as in the bottle, which is disappointing. Either way I love the color. It’s like a mermaid! This was two coats. I think someone asked me when I posted Sally Hansen Project Runway if this was a dupe and no, it’s definitely not.
Rumba Romance is a bronze with gold micro-glitter and OH MY GOD it’s horrific on me. I thought it would be hit or miss when I saw the pic online, but then as soon as I saw it in person, I knew it was gonna be a bad scene. This just clashes so hard with my skin because it’s so warm and yellow. But I’m sure it would look good on someone, haha! This was three, gloopy, coats.
The other two new colors are Caliente Coral, which is a “spicy” orange and Havana Dreams, which is a pale sky blue.
These are now available on Sephora’s website and they retail for $9.00 each.
What do you guys think about these?
