Swatch/Review: OPI ‘Washington D.C.’ Fall 2016 Collection – 4 colors

I know I haven’t posted in a hot second – with school in full swing, it’s going to get harder for me to post as regularly as I did when I started. But I’m going to try my best to get as many posts out there as I can.

As you’ll be able to see in my photos, I got a new daylight bulb! So that means I’m no longer having to rely on there being enough daylight in my room. This means I could take photos in the dead of night. UNSTOPPABLE. This also hopefully means my photos will be more consistent. I hope everyone can see the difference!

Alright, I picked up 4 colors from the new OPI fall collection. I would love to pick up more from this collection but you know – rent. If I pick up more, I’ll be sure to update this post.

Overall, I’m so in love with the 4 colors I picked up. Sure, I love a good bargain nail polish, but I will always come back to OPI and their beautiful formulas. All of these colors have great formulas and I can’t recommend them enough.

Let’s get into the swatches.

NOTD: OPI ‘Pale to the Chief’

Holy fall nail polish is upon us.

All of the fall nail collections have suddenly dropped into our lives and I am so dang excited. I love fall, SO BRING IT ON.

Today, I have only one shade from the new OPI ‘CIA = Color is Awesome’ Washington, DC. fall collection. As soon as I saw swatches of this, I knew I had to have it – even at full price.

This is ‘Pale to the Chief’. It’s a light, pale nude with a soft pearl finish to it. It’s the perfect “mannequin hands” shade for me – the shade that perfectly matches your skin tone, like a mannequin. But because of the pearl shimmer, it keeps me from having dead hands. It’s so pretty. I love it.

This did take 3 coats to get rid of any streaky. This is a thicker formula, and I found that if you work with it too much, or don’t have enough on your brush, it can be a little difficult to smooth out. So don’t wipe off your brush too much – but it’s still a great formula.

I hope to pick up more shades from this collection!
