OPI Swiss Collection Swatches and Review

Posted in Blue, Green, OPI, Purple, Red with tags , , , , , , , on September 7, 2010 by ainamakeup

Hi Everyone!  I know I’ve been a little MIA, but I’m back and have a lot to catch up on!  Today, I bring you the OPI Collection  for Fall 2010.  I love how every major OPI collection focuses on an exciting locale.  This time the collection is Swiss-themed and while I had a hard time restraining myself, I think the shades I chose to take home are awesome!

OPI "William Tell Me About OPI"

OK, so this vampy dark purple with a touch of brown may not be the most unusual of creme shades, but I can’t resist a dark polish.  I like that while it’s very dark you can still tell that it’s dark and not black.

OPI "Yodel me on My Cell"

Yodel me on my Cell is so pretty!  I love this shade of blue shimmer.  I could definitely see me wearing this at the ski lodge…well, if I ever skied.

OPI Color So hot it Berns

I LOVE this red.  I was surprised at how much I like it.  I discovered this while getting a polish change at a nail salon near my job.  I usually do my nails and toes at home, but I hadn’t had time and I was going out that night so I opted for a polish change.  It’s cheaper than a pedicure and it’s a good way of trying different colors without committing to buying them or sitting through a full pedi when you don’t have the time.  Anyway, I chose this really bright red that reminds me of the reds women wore in the 40’s.  I thought it look fantastic on my toes – so much so that I decided to buy it.

OPI "Cuckoo for this color"

Cuckoo for this color is aptly named because I definitely am.  This is a beautiful green-blue shimmer.  I think it’s a great color for fall, and one I will be wearing quite often.

OPI "Ski Teal We Drop"

So Far, Ski Teal We Drop has been the color I’ve reached for the most since buying these polishes.  I just love the shade.  I can’t get enough.  It’s dark but not too dark. Moody without being off-putting, and it’s a straight up creme, which keeps the shade simple and sophisticated.  Definitely my favorite of the collection.

All of these are available at a myriad of places that sell nail polish near you.  Enjoy, everyone!
