OPI swatch spam!

Good afternoon! I'm still totally screwed up from vacation - I keep sleeping past noon! It's really unlike me.
So even though I said "good afternoon" it feels like "good morning" for me... Haha!

During my last swatch-a-thon, I swatched almost all of the remainder of my OPI polishes, and I'm going to show you all but 4 of them today.

Let's start with my favorite OPI creme.


OPI - Dim Sum Plum. This is from the Hong Kong collection. 2 coats of awesome pink! It's unlike any other pink in my collection, it is deeper and richer, but still bright and fun!


OPI - Jade Is The New Black. Also from the Hong Kong collection, also a favorite of mine, also 2 coats, also a unique color in my collection. Love it!


OPI - Sti Teal We Drop. From the Swiss collection. 2 coats. Not very teal as the name suggests - more of a navy. Very pretty color! For some reason this is one of my go-to colors when I have short nails. I think it looks awesome on shorties!


OPI - You Don't Know Jacques! One of the best OPI names I think! Also one of their most popular colors. This is one of those things I bought because I felt my collection needed a shade like this. Since buying this I ended up with a bunch of similar ones and I really don't need them all, because this is not something I would wear often. (Actually, I don't think I've worn it yet.)
It is quite flattering and very work/interview appropriate, but right now I don't need that sort of color! I believe this is 3 coats.
Thankfully, I did get this on sale! I got this, and the next polish I'll show you, with a cosmetic bag, for $15! Good deal.


OPI - OPI Ink. Most people don't realize that this is actually called "OPI Ink." and not just Ink! I'm pretty sure it's a play on "inc" which is short for incorporated. OPI Inc. OPI Ink. Get it?
OPI classifies it as blue but I think it is more of a purple, however my first photo does not show that.
Very deep very shimmery purple/blue.
I wanted this color because I had heard it was a dupe for OPI - Nevermore - I received a mini bottle of Nevermore for Christmas and hated that I only had 3.5mL of it!


See? Dupes! Nevermore came out for Halloween last year. Three coats of each:


This shows the purple better. Can you see a difference? I honestly can't remember which is which.


That photo shows the sort of duo-chrome effect they have going on.
Gorgeous color but I don't really wear such dark colors anymore!


OPI - Conquistadorable Color. This is one of those I-bought-this-color-just-for-the-name polishes. The name is just too cute. I have a thing for Spanish even though I can't speak more than a few choice sentences. (And I can count to 100!)
I don't like red but I think this is a pretty flattering shade of red. A bit more orange-toned than others I have but still red. One coat!

There you have it! Almost all of my OPI's!

So look out for my remaining OPI's soon!

  1. Great post :) I really wanted last year's Halloween set until I heard it was all dupes. I hate when companies do that. Grr.

  3. Love the look of Jade is the new black.
    I have had OPI Ink in my stash for a while now and have never paid it much attention for some reason. I think I know what my next mani is going to be. :)

  4. Omg I just made a HUGE order on beautyjoint, including the entire Milani 3D set + Gems, Gold and Silver, all because of YOUR swatches! Hahah. Poor wallet... And to answer your question: I haven't tried Kiss Goodbye and Midnight Seduction yet, but they look pretty dense when I look at the amount of polish on the brush. However the formula looks extremely thick! Yikes. Whoa, I just road a bookchapter haha
