OPI Big Zodiac Energy Fall '23 Nail Lacquer 4-Piece Swatches + Review

NGL, this OPI set was from Fall 2023, but I saw it at Ulta last month, so I grabbed it because the shades looked pretty, and I kinda loved the name Big Zodiac Energy. Yes, I'm a sucker for a good gimmick. Aaaaanyway...I liked this quartet. A couple of the colors weren't really my thing; but I feel like they captured the essence of the Zodiac - and honestly, that was the point of the collection. I'll let you make up your own mind regarding shades. Swatch time!

Scorpio Seduction is a Cobalt Blue Pearl. It's giving Frozen ice queen vibes. Scorpio Seduction is a stunning cobalt blue pearl that reads blurple in certain lighting, and is just decadent to look at. This one definitely gives off a winter, New Year's feel; but, if you dig darks, you'll probably love this year-round. Formula is slightly thin; however, it builds to opacity quickly, and dries in a flash. This is 2 coats.

Virgoals is a Bronze Pearl. I'm not sure what I was expecting from this shade; but ngl I'm kinda digging the whole bronzey, peachy, gold hybrid glow. Virgoals is a brilliant bronze pearl that is one of those year round wear shades that looks equally as gorgeous in the winter as it does in the spring. For me, I especially love it for autumn and summer because those rich bronze tones give me that glowing goddess meets fall foliage vibe. Yes, this did take 4 coats for opacity; but, in its defense, this mani stayed intact for an entire week, and was rapid dry. Literal love at first sight shade right here. This is 4 coats.

Feelin' Libra-ted is a Violet Pearl Shimmer. So...I legit thought that this was a deep plum from looking at the bottle, but look how wrong I was. Feelin' Libra-ted is a beautiful violet pearl shimmer that is one of those purples that will work year-round {as opposed to being a fall or spring-specific purple}. This shade was super sheer - we're talking completely translucent until coat 3, which I was 100% not expecting. That said, it is a pretty little color that has a certain charm to it that is v appealing. Not sure if I'll repeat-wear, but it definitely makes the cutie mark. This is 3 coats.

Big Sagittarius Energy is a Burgundy Pearl. Y'all, this is a top tier color for fall; but yeah, I'm trying it for the first time at the start of spring. Go figure. Big Sagittarius Energy is a gorgeous burgundy pearl that is a quintessential bridge between maroon and plum. This shade is simply decadent, and would look so beautiful coupled with cognacs and slouchy knits in the throes of autumn; but for now it's just divine for adding a kiss of vamp to your florals and pastels. Formula was fantastic here! Yes, you can get full opacity in just one coat; but I opted for two to really get that richness. I absolutely adore this one! This is 2 coats.


PRICE: $19.95 for the 4PC Mini Set; $8.80 for each full-size bottle
