NOTD: OPI Tokyo Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer Collection in Samurai Breaks A Nail

Three coats of OPI Tokyo Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer Collection in Samurai Breaks A Nail. Bright Purple with Blue and Red Microshimmer.

Talk about a gorgeous color!

Samurai Breaks A Nail is one of the v few purple hues that has ever caught my eye; but that blue and red microshimmer throughout is on another level. Not gonna lie here, the formula is quite thin, so you def need a triple layer to keep it from looking patchy; but that little bit of extra effort is 100% worth it. Must have!

NOTD: OPI Tokyo Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer Collection in Another Ramen-tic Evening

Two coats of OPI Tokyo Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer Collection in Another Ramen-tic Evening. Pink Lilac Creme.

Can we just take note of the fact that OPI went hard with the names of these polishes when they created this collection? Like wowza I dig it!

Another Ramen-tic Evening is billed as a dusty rose creme; but it def reads more pinky lilac on the nail - which I absolutely l-o-v-e for spring! The formula here is a liiittle runny, but still incredibly easy to work with, and v easy to build. If you were a fan of OPI's Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon you'll love this one!

Two coats of OPI Tokyo Nail Lacquer Collection in All Your Dreams in Vending Machines. Metallic Electric Pink.

Ooh babes this color is fire!

Sooo...from the bottle I thought All Your Dreams in Vending Machines was going to be more purple than pink; but on the nail this beauty is a mind-blowing metallic electric pink with a cool blue shift that is unbelievable! Formula is flawless - it applies like a dream {no pooling in the cuticles], and dries lightning fast so you can be on. your. way in a flash. This is one shade you can't skip!

NOTD: Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color in Buttered Popcorn

Three coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color in Buttered Popcorn. Milky Yellow Crelly w/ Gold Glitter.

OMG babes this shade is TDF!

Buttered Popcorn is such a fun neutral shade w flare that feels so fresh for spring! At one coat you can use it as a confetti-like topper over another base shade; but at three coats you get this glam opacity! The formula here is good - drying fast between layers so application doesn't feel gloppy; while the combo of pale yellow + glittering gold perfectly captures the look of yummy, scrummy, buttery popcorn!

NOTD: OPI Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer in Princesses Rule!

Three coats of OPI's Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer in Princesses Rule! Sheer Baby Pink with Glass Flecks.

Are you swooning as much as I am right now? Like OMG

Princesses Rule! is the type of girly hue that will make you instantly feel like a Disney Princess. The shade is just so effervescent and bubbly that you can't help but to feel like a royal! This one is incredibly sheer at coat one; however, it builds beautifully to the opaque pretty you see here. Be mindful of dry time - since you're applying three coats, you do have to allow a longer amount of time for drying...but it's worth it!

NOTD: Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color in Coconut

Two coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color in Coconut. White Creme.

Y'all know how much I love white creme polishes, so obvs Coconut was the first shade from this collection on my radar; but omg babes what. a. letdown.

Here's the sitch, Coconut is a runner, and wanted nothing more than to flood my cuticles; but what was worse than the formula itself was the brush. Tbh it drips an obscene amount of excess polish onto the nail, and creates a huge, gloppy mess. My advice: wipe the brush {from the stem/handle, all the way down to the brush head} as much as possible before applying, otherwise application is a nightmare.

Color-wise though...I l-o-v-e. Opacity is reached in two coats, and the color is bright and long-lasting {no chips in 6 days!}. Nevertheless, I'd say this one is a pass due to the application issues. Womp womp.

Two coats of OPI's Classic Nail Lacquer Collection in Berlin There Done That. Taupe Greige Creme.

Okay, not my typical nail go-to; but this one caught my eye and I had to give it a shot!

Berlin There Done That is one of those ultra-chic nail colors that works as a neutral, but feels just the tiniest bit more edgy. The formula her was perfect - being the ideal density and consistency for two easy swipes and a top coat that lasted well over a week. Highly recommend this one for sweater weather and beyond!

OPI Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection Mini Infinite Shine 5 Piece Set Swatches + Review

I'm obsessed with all of the Tokyo things, so finding out that OPI was feeling Tokyo for Spring 2019? Obvi one of the most exciting things eva! I immediately grabbed the Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection Mini Infinite Shine 5 Piece Set, which includes the 3 colors you see above in addition to OPI's Infinite Shine ProStay Primer {base coat} and Infinite Shine ProStay Gloss {top coat}; which, if you haven't tried them, are the best base and top coat on the market {they've been my go-tos for years!}. Check out my thoughts on this fab five below!

Samurai Breaks A Nail is a Bright Purple with Blue and Red Microshimmer. Talk about a gorgeous color! Samurai Breaks A Nail is one of the v few purple hues that has ever caught my eye; but that blue and red microshimmer throughout is on another level. Not gonna lie here, the formula is quite thin, so you def need a triple layer to keep it from looking patchy; but that little bit of extra effort is 100% worth it. Must have! This is 3 coats.


I'm On a Sushi Roll is a Teal Creme. I've been on a pink-to-dark-berry binge lately, so I was super excited to try this bright beauty on for size - and not just because the name is tdf! I'm On a Sushi Roll is a must. have. for the warmer months! The bright tone is eye-catching + playful; while the formula is the absolute bomb to work with! Not gonna lie, it's thinner than I expected so you def need at least two coats; but the pigmentation and staying power make it so worth it! This is 2 coats.


Another Ramen-tic Evening. Pink Lilac Creme. Can we just take note of the fact that OPI went hard with the names of these polishes when they created this collection? Like wowza I dig it! Another Ramen-tic Evening is billed as a dusty rose creme; but it def reads more pinky lilac on the nail - which I absolutely l-o-v-e for spring!

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Lavendare To Find Courage

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Lavendare to Find Courage. Light Pink Lavender Creme.

I've been craving pastel polishes lately, and this pretty instantly caught my eye!

Lavendare to Find Courage is a oh-so-necessary-for-spring shade that is identical to the color seen in the bottle. IMO it leans more pink than lavender; but either way it's a stunning shade that you don't want to miss. Formula is fab! This bad boy has the potential to be a OCW if you use a heavy hand - I went lighter in my application, so used two. If you dig ultra-feminine shades this one is calling your name!

NOTD: Ciaté London Mini Nail Polish in Kaleidoscope

One coat of Ciaté London's Mini Nail Polish in Kaleidoscope. Silver Hexagonal Glitter in a Sheer Iridescent Blue Base.

Soooo...when my OPI Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow started to chip, I decided to top it with glitter instead of changing the color because I was having a lazy moment. Don't judge.

Kaleidoscope is a mix of large and small bits of silver hexagonal glitter. The thing that sets this one apart though is the fact that the glitter is in a sheer iridescent blue base that looks gorgey over white polish; and creates a multi-color effect when you move your hands. Application is easy here; but you do need to play with the glitter pieces a bit to get them the way you want. No big overall; but something to keep in mind.

NOTD: OPI Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow

Two coats of OPI's Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow. Stark White Creme.

White is the best nail color of all. time. You can't tell me different.

Alpine Snow is the shade to turn to when you want something chic yet striking and playful all at the very same time. It's a shade that's clean and pure while being head-turning, and it will forever be my favorite! The formula here is good - it reaches opacity quickly, but dries to a chalky finish, so you definitely need to swipe on the top coat. It's perfect; you need it. Period.

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Envy the Adventure. Green Creme.

Babes, green cremes don't typically do it for me, but OMG this bad boy right here is a game. changer.

Envy the Adventure is a gorgeous to the tenth power green creme that is a 100% lemming in the nail polish world. In other words...get. it. now. The formula here is pure brilliance. It looks thin during application; but builds to a rich opacity in just two coats, and it just a total stunner. Definitely one of my new faves!

Three coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Berry Fairy Fun. Purple with Scattered Pink and Purple Shimmer.

Le sigh...purples rarely do it for me; but I truly cannot get enough of this pretty!

Berry Fairy Fun is a seriously magical color that will appeal to you pink, purple, and even red fans! The base purple shade has red undertones which give it that berry cast; while the scattered shimmer creates a multidimensional feel that is simply irresistible. This one is v thin, so you do need a few coats to bring it to full opacity; but the streak-free, ultra-shiny finish make it a must!

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Black to Reality. Blackened Cherry Red Shimmer.

Ladies if a lemming is what you've been looking for this one will not disappoint.

Black to Reality is a gorgeous shade that is super multi-faceted - looking vampy in the shade, then exploding with stunning shimmer in sunlight. The formula here is good. It's a little too thin to be a OCW; but it builds quickly in just two swipes and looks perfect. Definitely one of my new faves!

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in March In Uniform. Navy Creme.

Tbh, I'm kiiiiind of navy-ed out after all of the navy hues that popped up in the fall and winter collections this past year; but I'm still loving this shade because it's the tiniest bit different from the rest of the blues out there.

March In Uniform is a rich shade that is perfect for the chillier months; but what makes it special? It actually leans blurple, so it has a multifaceted feel. Though definitely dark; I found that it applied slightly thin, making two coats a necessity. Definitely a must if you're looking for a shade that's not your basic navy.

Three coats of OPI Pop Culture Nail Lacquer in Pop Star. Poppin' Purple Texture.

Purple, purple, purple! I do love a good purple when the temps start to drop; and this bad boy is a double beauty whammy due to the color + that playful pop texture!

Pop Star is a great transitional shade - being light enough for those last days of summer, yet dark enough for those first days of autumn. On the nail there's a subtle blue holographic shift; however, it's not visible in photos {womp womp}; nevertheless, the red undertones make it complementary for everyone! This one applies v sheer; but builds beautifully, and has insane staying power. Dig it!

Gotta love a deep, dark hue for winter, amiright?!

You Don't Know Jacket is one of those looks-black-but-isn't navy blues. It's deep and dark and utterly delicious, with a formula that is f-l-a-w-l-e-s-s. A lot of polish clings to the brush, so make sure to wipe it well on the lip of the bottle before applying directly to your nail. This shade gave full coverage in one coat; but I opted for two to make it ultra-vampy!

Three coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Tinker, Thinker, Winker?. Sparkling Silver.

Winter is the one time of year I go wild for silver shades; so you know I simply couldn't resist this shimmering stunner!

Tinker, Thinker, Winker? feels like a winter wonderland on your fingers! It gives off a frosty and enchanting vibe whenever it catches the light, and pairs perfectly with pastels and sequins. The formula is thin {one coat would serve as a nice, sparkly topper to other colors}; but builds to opacity fairly quickly. If you're looking for a way to extend the holidays for a few more weeks, this bad boy is the key!
