OPI Fall 2016 Washington DC Collection Swatches Stay Off Lawn Suzi First Lady Nails CIA Color Awesome Liv Gray Top Secret
Left to right : Stay Off the Lawn!!, Suzi - The First Lady of Nails, CIA = Color is Awesome, ''Liv'' in the Gray and Shh...It's Top Secret!

Stay Off the Lawn!! is a deep green with a creme finish. Woooah this shade is very opaque and pigmented, it's almost a one coater!

Suzi - The First Lady of Nails is a dark olive green with a creme finish. Sheer and streaky coverage in 2 coats, but opaque in 3. Olive for Green (Infinite Shine Spring 2016 Collection) is lighter and brighter.

CIA = Color is Awesome is a teal blue with a creme finish. This color is very pigmented but the first and second coats are a bit streaky, so I prefer to apply 3 coats!

''Liv'' in the Gray* is a dark gray with a creme finish. Another crazy pigmented shade, almost fully opaque with only one coat!

Shh...It's Top Secret! is a blackened brown with a creme finish. This one is very opaque, I needed 2 coats for complete coverage.

OPI Fall 2016 Washington DC Collection Swatches Yank Doodle Pale Chief Freedom Peach Never Dulles Moment Inside Isabelletway
Left to right : Yank My Doodle, Pale to the Chief, Freedom of Peach, Never a Dulles Moment and Inside the Isabelletway

Yank My Doodle is a reddish brown with a creme finish. Yank My Doodle is surprisingly sheer for a brown shade, it's not quite fully opaque in 3 coats. It needed a fourth coat.

Pale to the Chief is a beige with a slightly pearly creme finish. This color is sheer and streaky with 2 coats, but 3 thin coats did the trick!

Freedom of Peach is a rusty orange with a creme finish. This orange is a bit sheer and streaky with 2 coats so it looks best with 3 thin coats.

Never a Dulles Moment is a curry yellow with a creme finish. I don't like this shade. The formula isn't easy to apply, it looks a bit patchy even after 3 coats. My Twin Mimmy (Hello Kitty Collection) is brighter.

Inside the Isabelletway* is a caramel brown with a creme finish. The coverage is sheer in one coat, but fully opaque in 2 coats and the finish is very smooth.

OPI Fall 2016 Washington DC Collection Swatches We Female Squeaker House Popular Vote Kerry Blossom Madam President
Left to right : We the Female, Squeaker of the House, OPI by Popular Vote, Kerry Blossom and Madam President

We the Female is a deep garnet red with a creme finish. It was a little bit patchy on the first coat but perfect with the second coat!

Squeaker of the House is a cool-toned brown with a creme finish. This one was more sheer than I was anticipating, it needed 3 thin coats. It's one of my favorite shades, though!

OPI by Popular Vote is a dark cool red with a creme finish. The color payoff is great, the first coat is a bit sheer but it's completely opaque with 2 coats.

Kerry Blossom* is a deep plum with a creme finish. This plum is nearly completely opaque in 2 coats, but it looks best with 3 thin coats. What's the Hatter with You? (Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection) is brighter and more purple.

Madam President is a pinky red with a creme finish. The formula is fantastic, Madam President is easy to apply and I got full coverage in two coats!
