If you’re a fan of classic films from the 60s, romantic comedies, and iconic stars like Audrey Hepburn like I am, you’ll be squealing for nail joy because the OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection is the latest must-anticipated holiday launch!
With the gift-giving season around the corner, I’ve swatched 12 shades from the collection to help you decide which might make good stocking stuffers for the special nail junkies on your list.
(There are also six Infinite Shine nail polishes in this collection, and I may swatch those at a later date. Let me know if you’d be interested in seeing those.)
I’ve also included the official press release, in case you want to read the colour story behind the polishes.
OPI Suzi – The First Lady of Nails from the Washington DC Collection is a polarizing geese-poop green. You’ll either love it (like I do), or you’ll think that it’s one of those fugly shades.
Earthy greens like OPI Suzi – The First Lady of Nails is a comfort colour in my manicure repertoire. This is totally a “me” hue, and I’m never at a loss when it comes to pairing it with anything in my wardrobe.
With understated elegance, this olive green commands attention without being flashy, and that’s why I’m drawn to it. It expresses mature sentiment while still offering a youthful twist. This dichotomy intrigues me in nail polish and in general.
P.S. Loyal readers will note my little hiatus. A while back, I broke one of my nails very badly in an unfortunate accident. It was the first time that I had ever done that! My nail tore very deep, halfway down the nail bed horizontally, and it was very painful! It has now grown out past the nail line, so I feel comfortable going forward with swatches. (The swatches of OPI Suzi – The First Lady of Nails in this post were taken before my nail broke. Stay tuned because in the near future, I will have new Zoya and OPI holiday nail swatches!)
OPI Never a Dulles Moment from the Washington DC Collection is the kind of yellow that would make a canary shake its tail feathers while cocking its head to one side to look thoughtful!
Many people shy away from wearing yellow on their nails for fear of looking like they’ve been struck with a severe case of jaundice, but I urge everyone to try it a few times. Once you find the one with the right undertone, it’ll add that boost of ‘cheer’ that turns your half-empty glass into one that’s half-full.
Like pumpkin pies and spiced lattes, OPI Yank My Doodle from the Washington DC Collection is sending strong fall vibes!
Advertised as a tawny copper, this creme nail polish features a name that will make the 12-year-old in you giggle.
However, there’s nothing funny about the colour. It’s sophisticated and a departure from many of the hues that I’ve highlighted on the blog before, which is why I’m especially excited to do this review!
This colour is probably one that falls into the ‘granny chic’ category. What can I say? Grannies have good taste!
OPI Stay Off the Lawn!!, which is from the Washington DC Collection, is nothing to shake a stick at and be crabby about. 😉
The creme nail polish made this nail junkie’s heart beat faster. (Of course, this should come as no surprise, considering my love history with greens.)
Check out the rest of this post for a closer look and to see why it gets two green thumbs up from me!
Give your nails the cosmopolitan treatment with the OPI Washington DC Collection for Fall/Winter 2016!
It officially launches in September, but many people have been able to get their hands on the colours earlier, so keep your eyes peeled like a banana for it.
In this post, I’ll show you the 12 shades, which will be permanent and one of the three limited-edition shades. All are great autumnal shades that make me excited about my favourite season!
I’ve also included the press release, so you can learn more about the inspiration behind this collection.
All of the colours in the OPI Washington DC Collection have good formulas and need 2-3 coats to achieve full opacity.
Hope that you’re all having a great weekend! 🙂 Either today or tomorrow, I’ll be announcing the three lucky winners to my 6-year blogiversary giveaway, so stay tuned!
Starting September 1st, 30 of OPI’s beloved colours will be released in the OPI Infinite Shine Iconic Collection!
With a super smooth formula and high shine (as the name would suggest), the OPI Infinite Shine formula makes the manicure process easy-peasy.
Among some of the classic shades include Bubble Bath, Cajun Shrimp, and Lincoln Park After Dark.
See the rest of this post to see if your favourite shade made the cut. (Even if it didn’t, don’t lose hope because OPI has plans to release even more colours in the Infinite Shine formula in December 2016.)
