OPI Iceland Collection Classic Nail Lacquer Mini 4PC Swatches + Review

True story: I have found 99.5% of 2017's nail polish releases to be underwhelming, but the entirety of the OPI Iceland Collection captured my eye from press releases alone, and made me run, not walk to the store to grab the OPI Iceland Collection Classic Nail Lacquer Mini 4PC Set, and I was so not disappointed. Babes, this quartet is pure. brilliance. It leans more winter than fall for me; but the shades will easily make you feel ridiculously cozy and feel utterly essential for my favorite thing: sweater weather!

Reykjavik Has All the Hot Spots is a Bronze Rose Metallic Shimmer. Ermagersh I'm in love! Ladies, you know this isn't the type of shade I typically gravitate towards but this beauty has totes captured my heart! Reykjavik Has All the Hot Spots is one of those shades that is one of those shades that is feminine with a kickbutt edginess that feels utterly perfect for fall. While the formula was sliiiightly thin, it builds beautifully to create the gorgeousness you see here. Get it girls! This is 3 coats.

Suzi & the Arctic Fox is Dark Purple Creme. True story: the color description of this one right here is the most inaccurate thing ever! Dark purple? For me it reads more dusty charcoal gray - but that's just my opinion. While I love a dark and vampy hue for the cold weather months, Suzi & the Arctic Fox didn't do much for me. I found it to be fairly muddy and boring, and it was a bit too chippy for my taste - requiring multiple touch-ups during the five days that I wore it. Tossing it. Womp womp. This is 2 coats.

Aurora Berry-Alis is a Fuchsia Pink Creme. Hey baby, hey baby, hey...! Ooh ladies if you're looking for a fall hue with a flash of fun you truly cannot look further than Aurora Berry-Alis! This baby has an autumn-apropos dusty, muted undertone coupled with a flash of bright that feels ultra-perf for one of my personal favorite things: sweater weather! Formula here is perfection - great coverage, zero chips, and ab-so-lutely gawgeous! This is 2 coats.

Less Is Norse is a Deep Dusty Blue Creme. Helllllloooo lemming! Out of all of the nail colors I have in my collection, not one could be classified as a dupe of this bad boy - and that's saying something. Less Is Norse is a brilliant blue creme that reminds me ever so slightly of denim, and truly feels like the perfect deep and icy hue for chilly temps. Formula here is a breeze to work with - two simple coats and you are good. to. go. This is 2 coats.


PRICE: $14.50 for the 4PC Mini Set; $12.50 for each full-size bottle.





These colours are so pretty. Happy October.
