I JUST received the OPI Brazil Collection and I couldn’t wait to get started on it! I saw teaser photos posted around the internet for a couple months now and was dying to get the polishes!
What I really love about this collection is the variety of shades within it. OPI covered brights, neutrals, classics and Liquid Sands! This is a fairly pic heavy post so I’m going to jump right into it! Each polish shown has top coat over it, except the Liquid Sands.
Take a look!
Samba-dy Loves Purple
I’m kicking this off with the 4 Liquid Sands in the collection! Up first is Samba-dy Loves Purple! This is a beautiful violet texture. I used 2 coats for this photo.
I’m Brazil Nuts Over You
I’m Brazil Nuts Over You is a vibrant matte bright pink. In LOVE with this one! I used 2 coats for this photo.
What’s a Little Rain Forest?
Another standout from the Liquid Sands! What’s a Little Rain Forest? is a gorgeous matte bright blue! I used 2 coats for this photo. I didn’t experience any staining with this blue either.
You’re So Flippy Floppy
A. Yellow. I. Can. Wear. This is a rare occurrence! You’re So Flippy Floppy is a vibrant yellow matte texture. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Gorgeous right? Ready for the cremes? Let’s do this.
Next Stop…The Bikini Zone
Next Stop…The Bikini Zone surprised me. I was expecting a meh shimmer. It’s a shimmery violet to pewter duochrome. I love it! I have a couple extra photos of this one to show the shift in it. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around
Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around is a light creamy beige. I used 3 thin coats for this photo. Ignore the dent in the pinkie. That’s purely user error (and a curious kitty scaring me).
Taupe-less Beach is a medium taupe creme. A great palette cleanser. I used 2 coats for this photo.
I São Paulo Over There
I São Paulo Over There is a dark taupe/mocha shade. I used 2 coats for this photo.
OPI Scores a Goal!
OPI Scores a Goal! is a dusty burgundy creme. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
AmazON…AmazOFF is a deep jungle green that actually has a subtle shimmer within it! I did experience a little bit of staining with AmazON…AmazOFF so be careful. I used 2 coats for this photo.
I Just Can’t Cope-acabana
I Just Can’t Cope-acabana is a super bright yellow creme! Very fun and sunny shade. I used 3 thin coats for this photo. I did experience patchiness with the first 2 coats on most of the bright shades.
Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?
Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? is a light mango creme. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Toucan Do It If You Try
Toucan Do It If You Try is a gorgeous coral creme that leans orange. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Kiss Me I’m Brazilian
Kiss Me I’m Brazilian is a vivid cotton candy pink. I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Live.Love.Carnaval is a medium hot coral shade. This is the creme I was dying for in the collection, and it delivered! I used 3 thin coats for this photo.
Red Hot Rio
What’s an OPI Collection without a classic red? Red Hot Rio is a thin red creme. I used 2 thin coats and this is almost jelly like in look.
I am in love with this collection. The mix of shades perfectly balances it all out. If you aren’t a fan of brights (or aren’t ready for Spring shades yet!) then you have neutrals to fall back on. The Liquid Sands are outstanding! All 4 are vibrant and eyecatching. I did need to use 3 coats for several of the creme shades in this collection, but because the end result was great, I didn’t mind so much. If I have to work at 3 coats then it better be amazing! I have to say though, I am still pouting that these Liquid Sands may not be available in full size! I need them in larger bottles.
