OPI Washington D.C. 4PC Mini Set Swatches + Review

Last week I promised you that I would soon be reviewing OPI's Washington D.C. 4PC Mini Set, and today...I deliver! This quartet was a surprise to me, as the colors in the bottles looked semi-unappealing; but on the nail? Let's just say it was a whole different story. See what I mean below!

We the Female is a Brick Creme. When I think of an autumn red, this is exactly the shade I have in mind: rich and vampy. What really makes We the Female an original is the rust, brown, brick undertones that give it a true autumn feel that is v different from your run of the mill red. Formula here is flawless - it reaches opacity in a flash and has a dense texture that never tries to flood the cuticles. Digging it! This is 2 coats.


Pale to the Chief is a Nearly Nude Creme. Le sigh. I have so many mixed emotions about this color, I can't even. When I first applied it I was like, no way, so not a fan. Then, after a few hours, it started to grow on me. After a couple of days though I was over it - I wanted some color. Long story short, if you love a nude nail, or a cafe au lait shade, then you'll dig Pale to the Chief; if you prefer more color, you're going to view it as blase and boring. Formula was great. Though sheer, it builds to a beautiful opacity in a few coats and leaves you with perfect mannequin hands. This is 3 coats.


CIA = Color is Awesome is a Deep Teal Creme. Teals don't pop up everyday in nail polish collections, so when they do...let's just say it's something to get v excited about. Though described as a dusty blue, CIA = Color is Awesome reads deep teal on the nail, and that color is awesome {see what I did there?}, and will appeal greatly to those who dig a vampy nail that isn't the typical plum or black cherry hue. Formula here is fab - highly pigmented, fantastically fluid, and an absolute breeze to work with! This is 2 coats.


Never a Dulles Moment is a Curry Yellow Creme. Here's a shocking revelation, if you will: Never a Dulles Moment is the best kept secret of the entire Washington D.C. collection. While yellow rarely tops polish favorites lists {especially mine}, Never a Dulles Moment is different. It has a depth and opulence that I have never before seen in a yellow hue. I'm dying to whip it out all autumn long! That said, I'm not crazy about how it looks on my skintone; so I probably won't. Womp womp. The formula here was a little less spectacular than the rest of the shades in this quartet. It was thinner, so it had a tendency to gravitate towards the cuticles, and appeared slightly patchy without multiple coats. This is 3 coats.


AVAILABILITY: ULTA.

PRICE: $14.50 for the 4PC Mini Set; or $10.00 per each full-size bottle.

I know, I know...it's still too warm to get too excited about fall, but it doesn't mean that I can't admire the fashions! As you know, I've been crushing on booties like whoa; but I've also developed quite the affinity for button down shirts, which couple so chic-ly with a structured ankle boot {and feel v model off duty}. Thoughts?
