I have a few OPI collections to show you in the coming week! Some have already released and some will be releasing within the coming months. Tonight I will be showing you the OPI Brights Collection.
The OPI Brights Collection will be releasing this May and consists of 6 new OPI colors, plus 3 core essentials which were in the OPI Neons collection from last Summer (Life Gave Me Lemons, Hotter Than You Pink and Down To The Core-al)
Let’s take a look at the 6 vivid shades!
Can’t Hear Myself Pink
Can’t Hear Myself Pink is a shimmering metallic pink. This is a fairly sheer polish but did build up nicely in 3 coats. Minor brush strokes are visible in application.
I Sea You Wear OPI
I Sea You Wear OPI is a shimmery, iridescent blue metallic. In the bottle you can see a slight blue to pink shift in the shimmer, but unfortunately it didn’t translate to the nail for me at all.
I Sea You Wear OPI is a fairly sheer shade as well but builds up easily . I used 3 coats for these photos.
The Berry Thought Of You
The Berry Thought Of You is my favorite of the collection. This is a bright, vivid medium berry creme. I used 2 coats for these photos.
I STOP For Red
I STOP For Red is the brightest creme in the collection. This is an orange toned bright red creme. Application was good, but I could still see VNL in 2 coats, so I used 3 coats for these photos.
My Car Has Navy-gation
My Car Has Navy-gation is a dark, vibrant navy blue creme. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Overall this is a very nice color and application was pretty good but.. as some of you know certain blue pigments can smell different and this one polish had a slight skunky smell to me. I’m not too sensitive to scents or polish smells, but when I started applying it I thought a skunk sprayed nearby and it was just starting to drift in through the open window. I soon realized it was the polish. So – slight warning there.
On Pinks & Needles
On Pinks & Needles is a glitter top coat with various sizes of hot pink matte hex glitters. I used 1 coat over My Car Has Navy-gation.
I wasn’t sure about this color combo at first, but once it was on I really liked it!
And then I decided to add a matte top coat…
Overall this is a nice, vibrant collection. The colors aren’t overly unique and I’m sure I have dupes of almost all of them in my collection. Application wise, 3 of the 6 were on the sheerer side – but it is recommended to layer these shades over a white base to make the colors pop (I didn’t do a white base to show the colors on their own)
The Berry Thought Of You is definitely my favorite of the bunch.
