OPI Holiday Collection: Reds
The Holiday power shade is upon us...
The Holidays are upon us! This is my absolute favorite time of year for so many reasons! Aside from the fact we will soon be buried in snow (ugh, you feel me Canada?) it's a time for peace, family, love and GLITTER! It's also a brilliant time for lacquer! Today we start the Holiday collection swatch series, this is part 1: The Reds! OPI partnered with Gwen Stefani (Adore her!) for their 2014 Holiday collection and it does NOT disappoint! Two coats + top coat always!
Here are The Reds for you ladybugs!
First up is 'Fashion a Bow'! This formula hits right in the middle of jelly and cream = CRELLY! It would take three coats to be fully opaque but applies effortlessly and finishes beautiful.
Next we have 'First Class Desires', okay ladies, ladies. Settle DOWN. This shade is beyond gorgeous and just screams classy! The formula is beautiful and the gold dust catches the light in the most beautiful way!
'What's your Pointsettia?' is my personal fave in this collection, a deep red that screams classic Stefani fashion! I love this one to bits!
Our 4th in the Red series is 'Cinnamon Sweet', and it is just as the bottle states - SWEET! Gorgeous shade, 2 easy coats to full opacity!
Next is 'Red Fingers and Mistletoes' a gorgeous red/pink with a slight irredescent shine to it! Two easy coats to beautiful coverage... I'm a total sucker for glitter so this one is in my collection faves!
Last we have 'Sleigh Parking Only', can we just talk about the name for a second?! How cute! Two easy coats for this deep red/mauvy vamp shade!
Hope you enjoyed the reds! Stay tuned in the next few days for The Classics and The Effects!
