During the past couple of days here, there has been a cold-weather warning in effect, but at least my nails got an early taste of spring and summer with the OPI New Orleans Collection! (To see the OPI New Orleans Collection press release that I posted earlier, which contains the official colour story, click on the above link.)
Feast your eyes on a rainbow buffet composed of hues in a wide range from a posh periwinkle and vibrant violet to a captivating coral and beautiful blue.
My initial impression is that, for the most part, the formula on these is good and needed 2-3 coats to achieve full opacity.
In this post, you can see bottle shots, which are really fun to look at. I love seeing them side-by-side, and I hope you do, too!
Also included are larger images of each swatch for a quick overview of the collection. However, to get an in-depth look at them, stay tuned for my detailed one-colour-per-post reviews that showcase several swatch photos in different lighting conditions and my thoughts on the formula. (I won’t be reviewing all of the colours in-depth, but I’ll do a few for the ones I wear as full manicures.)
There are 12 shades in the OPI New Orleans Collection:
- Let Me Bayou a Drink
