Good morning and happy Saturday! This morning we’re going to be looking at the OPI Peru Collection | Fall 2018!

This is a full creme collection. No glitters, no frills – just cremes.

12 of these shades are the normal OPI Peru Collection and 3 are Ulta Exclusives that I picked up when I saw them on the Ulta website. We’ll look at the initial 12 shades first, and at the end we’ll look at the Ulta Exclusives.

Let’s jump in and take a look!

OPI | Alpaca My Bags

OPI Alpaca My Bags is a dusty, slightly green tinged blue creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Como Se Llama

OPI Como Se Llama is a red burgundy creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Don’t Toot My Flute

OPI Don’t Toot My Flute is a lilac creme. First coat made it seem like it was going to be patchy, but it surprisingly evened out on second coat. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Grandma Kissed A Gaucho

OPI Grandma Kissed A Gaucho is one of my favorites from this collection. This is a slightly pink tinged, medium purplish orchid creme that is borderline crelly. It has a squishy look to it and applied beautifully in 2 coats.

OPI | I Love You Just Be-Cusco

OPI I Love You Just Be=Cusco is a cool toned red creme that almost borders on a brick red, but not quite. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

It’s a touch deeper in person than my photos show.

OPI | Lima Tell You About This Color!

OPI Lima Tell You About This Color is a slightly dusty cotton candy pink creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Machu Peach-U

OPI Machu Peach-u is a peach tinged light beige creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | My Solar Clock Is Ticking

OPI My Solar Clock Is Ticking is a dusty reddish coral creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Seven Wonders of OPI

OPI Seven Wonders of OPI is a dusty, pink tinged lavender. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Somewhere Over The Rainbow Mountains

OPI Somewhere Over The Rainbow Mountains is a rosy pink tinged beige creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This shade didn’t go well with my skin tone and I got “lobster hands” from it. Pretty color, just not for me.

OPI | Suzi Will Quechua Later

OPI Suzi Will Quechua Later is a rose tinted pinky mauve creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Yes My Condor Can-Do!

OPI Yes My Condor Can-Do! is a deep, vampy maroon creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | I Archaeologically Dig You (Ulta Exclusive)

Here is the first of 3 Ulta Exclusives (I bought these ones) 

OPI I Archaeologically Dig You is a medium dusty peach creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Andean Culture Club (Ulta Exclusive)

OPI Andean Culture Club is an interesting grey creme. It has some beige tones and a little hint of army green. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI | Ayahuasca Made Me Do It (Ulta Exclusive)

OPI Ayahyasca Made Me Do It is a dusty emerald green creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI Peru Collection | Fall 2018

There are 3 more exclusive shades that I’ve seen online, but I am not sure where they are from or I would have purchased them as well. I picked up the 3 Ulta exclusives to have all the Peru shades, then found out there were 3 more (Spice of Peruvian Life, You Crossed The Nazea Line! and Take A Hike On The Inca Trail). When I quickly googled those, they were all for shops in Europe. Not sure if I was too tired to be Googling, but I didn’t see a US shop with them.

As far as the collection goes – I like it. I usually need 3 thin coats for cremes (and most polishes because I apply so thin) but I did 2 thin coats for all of these shades and they were fully opaque at that point. So huge points for great application on all 15 shades.

The 3 Ulta exclusives are among my top picks, but also Alpaca My Bags and Grandma Kissed A Gaucho

  1. It looks like those colors you had trouble with were at Sally Beauty Supply.
