For those of you who would prefer to see 'hand swatches', Beauty Junkies Unite has beautiful swatches! There's no need to see all the shades on my nails since she already did such a good job, and to be honest my nails are so ugly right now you really don't need to see them. hahah
My favorites? Super Cute in Pink, Spoken from the Heart, Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel and Look at My bow!
Left to right : Small + Cute = Heart, Spoken from the Heart, Kitty White, Let's Be Friends!, Charmmy & Sugar, Look at My bow!
Small + Cute = Heart is a light peachy pink with a cream finish. I wish this one was more opaque because I love this shade, but it's still a bit streaky with 3 coats.
Spoken from the Heart is a medium pinky coral with a jelly-cream finish. I usually stay away from jelly nail polishes because most of them are sheer and require many coats, but this one is more opaque than your typical jelly finish. I need 3 coats, but it's not streaky and the color is gorgeous!
Kitty White is a silver white with a shimmery finish. This one is quite sheer, you will need to apply at least 4 coats if you don't want any visible nail line. Not my favorite!
Let's Be Friends! is a pinky white with a cream finish. I don't know if it's just me, but colors like this one always look messy on me. I like the color but I need to apply 3 coats.
Charmmy & Sugar is a sheer shimmery silver-pink base with a glittery finish. It can be used as a topper over another colour (try black or pink) or on its own but you will need many coats if you want full opacity.
Look at My bow! is a light pink with a cream finish. I love this color, such a pretty pink with a hint of lilac undertones! It's almost completely opaque with 2 coats, but I like to apply a third coat to get the most color impact.
Left to right : My Pal Joey, 5 Apples Tall, Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel, My Twin Mimmy, Super Cute in Pink, Never Have Too Mani Friends!
My Pal Joey is a bright medium blue with a cream finish. Perfect formula, My Pal Joey is completely opaque with 2 coats!
5 Apples Tall is a bright poppy red with a cream finish. Woah this red is so pigmented!! It's almost fully opaque with one thin coat and isn't streaky at all. (I did apply 2 coats for these swatches though)
Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel is a shimmery fuchsia pink with a glittery finish. I need 3 coats because it's a bit sheer, but it's a beautiful shade! It's a bit gritty though so I prefer to add a top coat.
My Twin Mimmy is a bright yellow with a cream finish. This one is quite streaky, but 3 thin coats will do the trick. Let it dry a few minutes between each coat though because it can get goopy!
Super Cute in Pink is a purple pink with a jelly-cream finish. I looove that jelly-cream finish, I think this is what nail bloggers calls a 'crelly' nail polish? It's not streaky or patchy, but still a bit sheer with 2 coats so I prefer to apply 3 coats.
Never Have Too Mani Friends! is a black with a cream finish. This is another highly pigmented shade, it was fully opaque with 2 thin coats.
The OPI Nail Lacquers retail for $12.50 CAD for 15ml.
