Alright y’all, we had the full collection swatch and review, so of course now we have the comparison post. I said in my last comparison post that I wanted to keep doing this for the collections I reviewed, both for reference for myself, and for others! I know it’s helpful for everyone to see, and always helps me when deciding whether to purchase. This blog was made with the intention of being a resource, so of course I want to provide that for you!
We’re talking about the comparisons for the OPI Neons 2019 collection today! I found some similar shades for 4 out of the 6 colors.
I picked up these shades from Polishpick.com. And as you can see, I’m now labeling it “purchased with discount”. I always want to be upfront and honest with all products I’m getting, so I’m posting that up there now. After purchasing from PolishPick multiple times on my own and talking about them with no incentive, the owner was kind enough to give me a blogging discount – I’m still purchasing the shades myself, but at an even cheaper price, which allows me to keep picking up the shades and showing them to you!
Even without the discount, PolishPick is still the place I’ve found with the cheapest prices for OPI – she also gets in the new collections right when they launch, and I’ve never had a problem with shipping or receiving products. Even without a discount, I would still be shopping there for each collection! That’s my spiel for the post.
Gosh DANG, it’s gotten HOT here in Chicago (finally). Something snapped and it’s been 80s here all week (that’s hot for a Midwest state that has been lazing around in the 60s and 70s all summer), and today it’s apparently 94. My new exercise routine is just sweating constantly because I’m currently too cheap to turn on my AC. I keep telling myself to appreciate it after Polar Vortex 2k19 but I’m weak and not used to this. What’s the summer like where you’re at? Are you calling me weak right now? Pls let me know.
But you know what, hot temperatures require neon nails. Smooth transition, right?
That’s right! We’re talking about the new neon collection from OPI. This is a 6 piece collection for Summer 2019 and features 6 bright neon shades. They’re bright, I was excited to test em out. Let’s just get right into it.
It’s the first spring collection post! I think this is the earliest I’ve gotten a spring review up. 2019 is really my year, huh. 3rd year of blogging is really when I get it together, guys.
I’m also in the process of moving, and finding a new apartment, so sometimes browsing availabilities and showings can get in my way. But I’m going to make sure that I won’t get too far behind! I want to keep up this timeliness! I’m putting this down in writing to keep myself accountable! Exclamation points! All exciting things happening over here. No really, I’m actually really excited to move. I’m ready to have a place with more natural light (ergo more places for plants), and to decorate another little space.
But let’s talk about spring polish, shall we? It’s still full on winter here, with ice storms and freezing temps, but you know, I have some bright wonderful spring colors for you.
The first collection to talk about is from OPI! It’s the Spring 2019 collection, and it’s a 12 piece collection based on Tokyo. As always, the names are hilarious and so fitting for their inspiration. It’s full of bright pinks and other bright pops of colors that I’ve really been craving from OPI so I’m so excited to dive in. It’s made up of 9 creams and 3 shimmery shades.
Just like the other collections, I picked these up from polishpick.com. It’s still the best price for OPI I’ve found, and they always ship so fast! Check em out, will ya.
Y’all, it’s a huge collection, so I promise I won’t talk too much. But be ready for lots of posts coming up soon. I’m going to be at my parents house for a week for the holidays, so when I’m not annoying them and eating their food, I’m going to be working on writing up as many posts as I can and getting them ready to post. So be ready. (Sorry in advance, Mom and Dad).
Alright that’s enough rambling because we have a big-ass collection to get into today. This is the OPI Holiday 2018 collection which is inspired by the newest Nutcracker movie that came out. This is their traditional 12 shades, but 3 glitter toppers for a whopping 15 bottle group. I know right. BUT WE’LL GET THROUGH IT TOGETHER. There’s a ton of polishes and photos to get into, so let’s just do this.
It’s another fall collection! After having friends down this entire week and weekend, the swatches got a little behind. But on my quiet Sunday, I marathon-swatched all 12 shades. It was just me and the polish, and lord, I’m not ashamed of how much I enjoyed it. This also means the rest of the fall collections will be on the blog this week, and then we’ll be able to get right into holiday collections! It’s still fall until December, that’s what I’m saying.
So let’s get into it. It’s OPI so we got a 12 piece collection to get on through. As always, I pick up my polishes at polishpick.com – I’ve bought from them several times, and they’re always affordable (OPI’s are only $5.75!) and so quick on shipping! Highly recommend, and really the only reason I can afford to swatch all these collections!
This collection is for fall 2018 and is based on Peru. It’s full of 12 cream shades. It’s a long post, so I’ll stop rambling already and get on into it.
We’re continuing on with all the reviews – lord, they’re already announcing fall and Halloween collections. AH. But for me it’s still summer, and we’re working our way through summer collections. So of course, it’s time for the OPI Summer collection.
GREASE IS THE WORD, IS THE WORD. Okay I’m done. But come on, it’s a collection based on Grease! An icon! A classic! So of course, with its 40th anniversary this year, OPI based their whole summer collection on it. With Grease themed names, and some fun textures as well, we got a lot of fun to talk about.
So of course, as always OPI does a whole 12 piece collection. And then they added 3 more ‘Leather Like’ finish polishes. So that was 15 shades to swatch and talk about. Lord, OPI you kill me. But I love you too much.
Let’s get into this shall we since there’s gosh dang 15 polishes to talk about here. Yeesh, I tell ya, I’ll try to be short, but you know how I am. I can’t be blamed for having to talk about 15 polishes in one post.
Look at this! It’s a spring post! That’s right, I’m finally getting spring posts up. (Even though it’s holding out at a solid 40 degrees here but you know). I had a lovely weekend home for Easter, and rode back on the train today. Am the only one just grossly fascinated with trains? I ride them every day and they still fill me full of wonder.
Enough trains. This is a beauty blog (but there’s beauty in trains, right?) and we have a collection to talk about! Today I have the OPI ‘Lisbon’ collection, based off the lovely town in Portugal. I haven’t been there yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
This is mainly full of bright and rich creams and some shimmer. I have the 12 core shades, as well as the 3 Sally Beauty Exclusive shades at the end. There’s a lot of bottles and a lot of nails to get through, so let’s get right into it!
