OPI San Francisco Collection
In addition to the three new Liquid Sand shades, OPI's fall/winter collection is full of warm, autumn-like colors offset by a handful of bold blues, a shiny foil, and even a little duochrome.
A-Piers to Be Tan
I shore do like this chocolaty tan.
(Reminds me of one of the most notorious OPI shades of all time: OPI And Apple Pie. More caramel than chocolate, really.)
Dining al Frisco
Just feast your eyes on this fresh-air blue!
Betcha can’t pass up this marvelous magenta.
(Has a small amount of pink/red/gold duochrome shift. Subtle.)
First Date at the Golden Gate
You and me and this shimmery ruby make three.
Haven’t the Foggiest
Can’t tell you why I love this misty gray...I just do!
(The most perfect pewter foil ever. Has a strong charcoal/deep grey tone, not pure bright silver.)
I Knead Sour-Dough
Are you bready to wear this toasty warm brown?
Incognito in Sausalito
You better keep this almost-black blue under wraps.
In the Cable Car-Pool Lane
Good golly, Miss Trolley, this rich burgundy takes me away!
Keeping Suzi at Bay
There’s no holding back this assertive navy blue.
Lost on Lombard
Oh garn-et! I’m all turned around!
Muir Muir on the Wall
This trailblazing plum is the fairest of all.
(Very good duochrome effect on this. Goes from plum to bronze to green. Reminds me of some of OPI's best discontinued colors, namely Black Tie Optional.)
Peace & Love & OPI
This holographic sage and eggplant is far out!
(Steel blue to purple to teal multichrome. It's not a dupe of Not Like The Movies, nor is it a dupe of Lippmann Wicked Game.)
The formula on these was mixed, but generally good. The creme shades were perfect. A dream to apply. The shimmers were more sheer and uneven than I was anticipating and took an extra coat for evenness and opacity. I did three coats of each, but only the shimmer shades needed the third coat. Dry time is fast.
A couple ho-hum colors, but also a couple of very cool ones. My picks are Muir Muir On The Wall, Peace & Love & OPI, Haven't The Foggiest, and Keeping Suzi At Bay. Two gorgeous duochrome shimmers, my new favorite silver foil and a vibrant but not neon blue creme.
Don't forget to check out the Liquid Sand polishes that are part of this collection!
