OPI Italian Love Affair-
This polish is a recent TJMaxx find at one up in Chicago. This polish originally comes from the Spring 2001 Italian Collection and I would consider it a cotton candy pink with a pearly quality to it. I don't see this pearly quality very often but I liked it with the pink because it was fun and girly.
The formula was surprisingly opaque and not at all sheer like I thought it was going to be. Even though it was opaque, it was a little but streaky but if you're careful, you can get away with two coats. Below is two coats with topcoat.
OPI Meet Me on the Star Ferry-
Another recent polish buy, I ordered this one from Ulta because the OPIs were buy two get one free (right now until the 25th). I ended up picking up six polishes for myself and I was really happy with this one. This polish comes from the Spring 2010 Hong Kong Collection which I am slowly trying to acquire because I have personally lived in Hong Kong!
This polish is very unique and very beautiful. It's a shimmery warm mauvy purple that's also very metallic. I didn't have any formula issues, it applied smooth and buttery. Two coats with topcoat below.
OPI Berlin There Done That-
This one was also with that recent Ulta purchase during the OPI sale. This polish comes from the Fall 2012 Germany Collection and it's a medium taupe cream. The formula on this one was great and I had no issues at all. I used two coats with topcoat below.
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark-
You guessed it, another Ulta polish. I actually went this long without having this polish in my collection. I actually think I have this as a mini, an unlabeled mini, that I've had for many years but I just couldn't be sure the color.
Lincoln Park After Dark is originally from the Fall/Winter 2005 Chicago Collection but it is now part of the core collection. It's a deep dark purple and it pretty much looks black in all lights. It's deep and vampy and I'm in love with it. It's got a great formula and it's perfect in two coats. Two coats with topcoat below.
OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous-
Last but not least is a monthly swap polish that I had yet to use. This polish comes from the Fall 2010 Swiss Collection and is a dark smoky silver metallic foil. This one does start out a little bit sheer so it does need three coats to be opaque. I used three coats with topcoat below.
Do you have any of these shades in your collection? What do you think of them?
