OPI has a new summer collection out called Summer Flutter and I’ve got them for you today.
I was pretty pleased with these because they were a little different from what I would expect of OPI for summer. In other words, more interesting than normal!
Having said that though I was a little disappointed after I actually applied them. A few of the “more interesting” ones didn’t live up to my expectations from the bottles.
The formula was fine, if not a little thick. They were all two coaters except one.
Flower-To-Flower is a creamy pink with very subdued silvery shimmer. I am in love with this color! Seriously I know it’s like a Barbie pink, but it went on so smooth and nice, and I love the shimmer. I wore this one already and I really do love it. Perfect for summer! This was two coats.
Flit In A Bit is a bright orange creme. I was pleased enough with this one because it wasn’t all that warm on me and it worked with my skin tone. Having said that, I still don’t see this as being a huge break-through color or anything. This was two coats.
Wing It! is a pinkish/red jelly formula with duochrome glitter that turns violet, blue & gold. This is the one I was really disappointed in. First off you don’t get as much of the duochrome effect on the nail as in the actual bottle. Also it’s very sheer. I have three coats on here and you can definitely still see my nail line. I REALLY wish it was more opaque! Oh well, you can’t win ’em all.
Catch Me In Your Net is a medium blue packed with gold & green duochrome glitter. It looks very mermaid-esque, but I was a little disappointed here also. Again the duochrome effect was more apparent in the bottle than on the nail, and this just didn’t “wow” me. This was much more opaque than Wing It! though and I only used two coats.
Overall I think this is a good collection and definitely more interesting than say your standard pinks, reds and nudes. However I wish the glittery ones had grabbed me more.
These are available in stores now, I believe.
How do you feel about Summer Flutter?
