Today I’ve got the second half of the OPI Swiss collection for fall 2010. This is made up of 6 creme colors, 4 of which are reds…Having said that I must confess: red looks good on me! As much as I am disinterested in most reds when I first see them, it almost always happens that they wind up complimenting my skin tone. Go figure.
I must say that the first half was much more interesting to me both because the colors were more my type and I favor shimmers. But there were a couple in here I really like also.
The formula on these was great, not a single issue whatsoever. They totally flowed smoothly, nicely, and all were just two coats.
Color So Hot It Berns
Color So Hot It Berns is a bright, cool, poppy red. These kinds of reds always amaze me when I put them on because they look…so…darn…good! But I DO have a bunch like this so it’s nothing I haven’t seen before.
From A to Z-urich
From A to Z-urich is a bright, berry red. Again this looks great on me, but not all that unique.
Just A Little Rosti At This
Just A Little Rosti At This is a deep red with a little brown in it. It’s nice, but… need I say it again?
I’m Suzi & I’m A Chocoholic
I’m Suzi & I’m A Chocoholic is a brick red with lots of brown. It’s ok, but probably my least favorite of the whole twelve-piece collection.
Ski Teal We Drop
Ski Teal We Drop is a medium blue teal. This is one of the ones that I really like. It’s kind of got a ‘smoked out’ thing going on, but very slightly. Very nice.
William Tell Me About OPI
William Tell Me About OPI is a very dark, vampy purple. This wound up being my favorite, surprisingly. It’s just SO dark and shiny and it’s very chic looking. I do have a few like this, but another won’t kill me. Besides, most of the ones I have that are similar are three-coaters and this was just two. 🙂
Overall even though I like the shimmery half much better there are a few in here I think are pretty nice. If you like red polish, then this might be the collection for you!
I believe the entire OPI Swiss collection will be available for sale in the beginning of August.
Do you prefer the shimmers or cremes or a combo of both?
