OPI Love OPI, XOXO Holiday 2017 Collection

Press Sample Happy Monday! We’re kicking this week off with the OPI Love OPI, XOXO Holiday 2017 Collection! I’ve been meaning to get this post typed up for over a week, but we had a cold bug sweep through the house right after Thanksgiving. As soon as we started feeling better, Nick and I got hit HARD with a cold and flu bug that knocked us on our butts. It was bad. Somehow Jacob didn’t get hit (thank goodness) but I’m finally feeling human again, I just can’t really smell anything yet. I have the Love OPI, XOXO Collection to share with you and it has a range of shades from light and airy to deep and vampy. I definitely had a few loves within the set. Let’s jump right in! OPI Snow Glad I Met You OPI Snow Glad I Met You initially didn’t wow me, but when I put…

OPI Fall 2017 Iceland Collection Giveaway

It’s like a little giveaway month here! Tonight I have the OPI Fall 2017 Iceland Collection Giveaway to share! 3 weeks ago I posted my OPI Fall 2017 Iceland Collection review, which I received from Octoly . Then a couple days ago a press sample package came in from OPI with the collection. Usually we get a form to fill out saying whether we are interested in it or not, and I was going to decline it since I already had it. This time there was no form so *poof* it showed up (not that I’m complaining, it was a cute package!) So I emailed my OPI rep and said “Hey! I got this already, would it be okay for me to do a giveaway with the new set?” I got a response shortly after saying “SURE!” So thank you OPI! When I do giveaways, I usually leave the items at…

OPI Iceland Fall 2017 Collection

Press Sample Ok everyone, I’m really excited about tonight’s post. This is the first time in a long time that I was absolutely in LOVE with an entire OPI collection, application and all! Which collection? Well the OPI Iceland Fall 2017 Collection of course! First off, a few months ago I joined a new network that is specifically geared toward Instagram and Youtube more than the physical blog.  While I love my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when work is busier and my son’s schedule is all over the place. The network is Octoly (for those curious) and it allows me to try out new brands and do mini reviews or features on my Instagram account. When I saw  Octoly had the OPI Iceland Collection up for grabs, I applied right away and here it is! Yeah I know I swatch for OPI usually, but I haven’t gotten the press release for this…

OPI Summer 2017 California Dreaming Collection

Press Sample Tonight I have the OPI Summer 2017 California Dreaming Collection to share with you! I was excited when I saw the inspiration behind this collection since California is my home state. I’ve actually been to most of the places behind these polishes as well. Much like the Spring 2017 Collection, I was sent the collection in the Infinite Shine formula rather than the normal formula. Personally I prefer the Infinite Shine formula, but I do have to say a few of the shades in this Summer 2017 collection didn’t seem like the typical smooth Infinite Shine formula I’m use to.  However, I do find the application between the OPI Infinite Shine formula and the normal nail lacquer formula to be a bit different, so please keep that in mind if you choose to purchase these in the normal lacquer formula. My thoughts and experiences on these shades might differ from…

OPI Spring 2017 Fiji Collection

Press Sample Tonight I have the OPI Spring 2017 Fiji Collection to share with you! OPI sent out the Infinite Shine versions of the Fiji collection, but from what I can tell they are the same as the normal lacquers for this collection. However, I do find the application can be different and I prefer the application of the Infinite Shines to the normal ones. The brushes are wider and overall I have less issues. The lovely Karen over at ManiGeeks has the lacquer version of the OPI Fiji Collection, so pop on over there and check them out for that formulation. I do find her and I to generally be in agreement on application. She will also have a comparison post up tomorrow Karen’s comparison post is up too, so check it out HERE. So if you want to see how these stack up to previous shades, make sure you take…
