Koala Bear-Y is a delicious berry creme.

Koala Bear-Y is such a bold berry, great formula, very pigmented. 1-2 coats.

Hot & Spicy is just that! Hot and spicy.

Hot & Spicy is the same great formula as the Koala Bear-Y. I couldn't ask for better and both are very glossy.

And Teal The Cows Come Home is one of those essential blues, shimmery and never out of season.

Teal the Cows Come Home is a frosty medium turquoise shimmer, here I used 2 coats. Great formula, smooth and not too thin.

OPI FUN trio from the Color Is The Universal Language collection

As a huge OPI fan, I have had the good fortune of testing a lot of their polishes. A couple that I will be featuring here today I’ve already tried, but in the super mini bottles. So it was a pleasure to get the chance to try them on using the regular size bottles and brushes. I’m just not a fan of those microscopic bottles. I received two kits/boxes (each containing 3 polishes) from Loxa Beauty. The one I’m showing you today is titled “Fun“. They are currently on sale through Loxa for $21.50! Fun contains You Don’t Know Jacques, Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm? and My Dogsled is a Hybrid. Here we go!

This is the "Fun" trio, Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm?, My Dogsled is a Hybrid and You Don't Know Jacques.

This is the “Fun” trio, Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm?, My Dogsled is a Hybrid and You Don’t Know Jacques.

Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm? 3 coats from the OPI Fall 2014 Nordic Collection. A deep purple cream loaded with gloss.

Aloha! Hangin’ loose \mn/ with the OPI Hawaii Collection

Aloha all you wahines! Howzit? I have to admit, I am in love with 99 percent of this collection sent to me for review from Loxa Beauty! So much that I was a bit concerned about how these sun-drenched shades would look on my winter pale skin, that I actually applied bronzer on my fingers for the photos. How’s that for dedication?! No worries “brah”, it’s all da kine good when you’re on the island. And I REALLY want to get back to Maui. We were there for nine wonderful days in ’02 and all 500+ photos I took…all gone! Sadly, my laptop totally died a painful death upon reentry to the mainland and I didn’t back up my pics. Yeah, dat was lolo (stupid), I know. So I HAVE to go back right?!

Okay, I won’t torture you any further with my feeble attempt at the “pidgeon” slang. My kids would say, “lame Mom, lame.” LOL the collection consists of 12 island inspired shades. Cremes, shimmers and a lonely little metallic yellow glitter mix. Let’s take a look!

The OPI Hawaii collection for Spring 2015. Top down, left of center of starfish: top red is Go With The Lava Flow; to the right the green is My Gecko Does Tricks; the blue is The Color's Making Waves; under the blue is Hello, Hawaii Ya?; the peachy apricot creme is Is Mai Tai Crooked?; and the pink is Suzi Shops & Island Hops. To the right center of the starfish is: the mauve on top is Just Lanai-ing Around; the purple is Lost My Bikini in Molokini; the minty green is That's Hul-Arious!; the sandy nude is Do You Take Lei Away?; bottom yellow is Pineapples Have Peelings Too; and the bright coral/red is Aloha From OPI.

Get yourself a Mai Tai and pull up a beach towel. There are a lot of photos here! First up is Do You Take Lei Away?

Do You Take Lei Away is a lovely nude creme that only needed two coats. It's a bit on the beige spectrum but not too much pink. It's more like sand. Buttery formula.

Here we have Is Mai Tai Crooked?

Is Mai Tai Crooked? is a peachy salmon creme. A bit streaky on the 1st coat, starts correcting on the 2nd coat and perfect on #3! 2-3 coats depending on your technique but the color is worth it!

One of my faves, gorgeous Aloha From OPI.

Aloha From OPI is one of my faves in the lot. It's a brilliant "almost coral" but the color reminds me more of a red island flower, maybe I've seen this on a hibiscus? Gorgeous with a tan. I used 2 coats and it's pretty amazing.

In the same color family is Go With The Lava Flow.

Go With The Lava Flow is another coral but this is a shimmer. Just a slight shimmer but really glows in the sun. I can't wait to see this on my tanned toes! Super easy to apply, 2 coats.

And mauve shimmer in Just Lanai-ing Around.

Just Lanai-ing Around is a mauvey pink, but not your granny's mauve! It's just downright juicy. There is a very slight silver shimmer up close. This is 1 coat! But you might do 1-2. Great formula!

Blushing beauty is Suzi Shops & Island Hops.

Suzi Shops & Island Hops is a bubblegum pink creme. Nothing new here. It wants to be ornery and streaky on first two coats but it dries fast as do the others. So it's all good. This took 3 coats. Another nice one for summer toes.

Here is a simple mani using some of the above shades.

So, I wanted to create a simple mani using some of the color families in the collection. A simple dotticure with a gradient accent nail. On my pinky is Do You Take Lei Away? with dots of Aloha From OPI. The gradient is both of those shades plus Go With The Lava Flow. Go With The Lava Flow on my middle digit with Do You Take Lei Away?. On my pointer finger is Is Mai Tai Crooked dotted with Go With The Lava Flow.

In case you have seen That’s Hul-Arious! in the bottle and wondered, I did a comparison for you against Gargantuan Green Grape (not a part of this collection, but I already had it and just knew I had to throw this one at ya!)

Okay, when I opened the package containing these 12 summery bottles, I had a deja vu moment with That's Hul-Arious! Where have I seen this before? Ahh, I have a water, yucky bottle of a gorgeous color that aggravates me to no end, Gargantuan Green Grape! Well, no they aren't dupes but you can barely see that in the bottles side by side. I've labeled them so you can see. "GGG" is a cooler shade of mint, watery and takes 4 coats to opacity and then you may still see nail bed.  Whereas "TH" from the Hawaii collection is mintier, much more opaque and not nearly as watery. It took 2 coats for me, and recommended 2-3 coats. Very glossy too! If you get That's Hul-Arious! and are tempted at any time to get Gargantuan GG, don't bother. All you need is the Aloha spirit of TH!

I wanted you to see the difference between GGG and TH. It took 4 coats of Gargantuan and still see nail bed. That's Hul-Arious only took 2 coats.

Another pretty green in the collection, My Gecko Does Tricks.

My Gecko Does Tricks is a shimmery, sort of duochrome like finish, very shiny and although it goes on sort of thin, it only took me 2 coats. You can get full opacity in 2-3 coats.

A beautiful Pacific blue shimmer in This Color’s Making Waves.

This Color's Making Waves is a pretty metallic with silver shimmer and silver glass flecks. This is 2 coats. It definitely reminds me of the water at the black sand beach on Maui!

Almost there! I know, longer than a 14-hour flight to the island chain. Here is Hello, Hawaii Ya?

Hello, Hawaii Ya? I'm not totally sure why this smoky purple landed in the collection. Maybe it represents Pele's personality. Maybe there is an island flower this color? It's pretty, and I like this cremey formula. I just don't think it needed to be in this collection with the other gorgeous grapey purple. You know what? Actually, now that I think of it, poi, that starchy purple mashed root that is so prominent in a myriad of the Island's food could be the inspiration here. At a luau we attended in Maui, besides poi we had taro root rolls nearly this color! They were goooood! So, I take it back. This color belongs. ;-)

A gorgeous, absolutely stunning purple creme, Lost My Bikini in Molokini.

Lost My Bikini in Molokini. Molokini, that crescent islet off the coat of Molokai is a great place to dive. And you do NOT want to lose your bikini there. When we snorkeled there we saw lots of honu (sea turtles) and reef sharks! This gorgeous grapey purple creme is another of my faves in this collection. 1 COAT! LOVE IT!

And last, my least favorite, but nice attempt, Pineapples Have Peelings Too.

Pineapples Have Peelings Too. I hoped to give you good news about this one. But I can't lie. This is two coats but I had to fish for every glitter (other than the colored micro glitters) on each finger. I applied the first coat easily enough and I like the shimmery yellow all by itself. But that infernal glitter does not belong in this metallic yellow polish. This is two coats. between coats I had to dob polish onto a piece of foil then pick the larger glitters up with an orangewood stick, apply, then applied the second coat. Sorry but a indie glitter it's not! I do like the yellow though!

That’s all 12! Have you already picked up any of these, or the whole collection? You can order them all at *** Loxa Beauty today!

Believe me, I wanted so badly to have a little tan before swatching these, so I had to fake it with bronzer. Oh well, the life of a beauty blogger! 😉

50 Shades of Grey LE Collection by OPI

I received all six shades of the 50 Shades of Grey LE Collection by OPI, from Loxa Beauty this week. From vampy cool toned red to the smoldering deep toned grey (w/just a hint of blue-tone), this ensemble will surely inspire you to paint your nails and go to town! I have to say, the some of the formulas were on the thin side of application, but each only needed two coats to opacity. I had a bit of trouble with pooling on the red, Romantically Involved, but it only happened on one nail. The fluidity of the formula took me by surprise. Each creme dried quickly, applied smooth and dried glossy. Here are a couple shot of the bottles.

From left: My Silk Tie, Romantically Involved and Cement the Deal.

I like how the grey shades were sort of stepped, and I plan on trying a gradient when I get the chance. Then the other three took on a different personality from snappy silver, sparkly silver with blue glitters and sexy red.

You can now get all six shades from the LE Collection of 50 Shades of Grey by OPI now from Loxa Beauty! The film adaptation of the 2011 romance novel by British author E.L. James is due to be released in theaters on February 13, 2015.

“Surrender to the passion. Surrender to the color.” Pick up your OPI 50 Shades of Grey polishes today at Loxa Beauty!

• Click – My Silk Tie

My Silk Tie is a pearlescent silver but also on the shimmery side. I used two coats, but depending on your style of application you might want three if you have trouble with brush strokes. I used Dark Side of the Mood on the accent.

• Click – Shine for Me

Shine for Me is a stunning shimmering teal and blue-sparked silver mettalic microglitter. Great for an accent nail with other shades from this LE collection. I found it dried slightly textured but added a coat of Gelous on top, smooth as a baby's hiney. I applied one thin coat over My Silk Tie as a topper, a great combo (and one thin coat over Dark Side of the Mood so you could see it layered) but you could definitely get away with it being opaque on it's own in 2-3 coats.

Conclusion: I liked this collection and felt like they all were very complimentary with each other. I loved layering the Shine on Me over My Silk Tie…total win there. I love reds and one would think with all the reds I own, I’d have a dupe. But nope! I looked and this is unlike my other reds. The thin formula is workable and makes this one worth it. I’m not a huge fan of grey/gray 😉 but they do gradient nicely together. My fave grey in this collection is the Dark Side of the Mood. What do you think? Got it, want it, on the fence?

I can’t personally expound much on the “Grey” trilogy, other than the 2nd installment of the books is named Fifty Shades Darker and the 3rd is Fifty Shades Freed. Both were published in 2012. But from what I’ve read from reviews of the trilogy, the story line is steamier than a July picnic in Louisiana! I may not be able to handle that, but I had no trouble with these fab polishes.

New OPI Infinite Shine, pt. 3

These six OPI Infinite Shine polishes with their Primer and Gloss topcoat have truly been a joy to test. The Gel Effects Lacquer System may not be the only kid on the block with this “no-curing” method, but they certainly do give hard core gel systems a run for their money. I might add, none of the darker shades stained my nail beds. Just thought I’d throw that in for free! 😉 And since I’ve already laid the groundwork with the two previous posts, I’ll proceed right on to the last two shades in this series of swatches… Pretty Pink Perseveres and She Went On and On and On!

Don't you love a great baby pink? Pretty Pink Perseveres is a delicate pale pink creme. She Went On and On and On actually teams up pretty nicely.

Don’t you love a great baby pink? Pretty Pink Perseveres is a delicate pale pink creme. She Went On and On and On actually teams up pretty nicely.

First, check out Pretty Pink Perseveres! This pretty pink creme was thick and highly pigmented like the pale blue in the previous post, but no worries. A light and patient hand will get the job done.

Pretty Pink Perseveres is the same formula as To Infinity & Blue-yond but this one took three coats. I think it's because my nails are stained from so much swatching lately. Someone with unstained nails could probably get away with two coats.

And last but NOT least, one of my favorites in the bunch, She Went On and On and On. LOVE coral reds, and to me it just screamed for some gold accents!

She Went On and On and On is one of the most perfect coral red cremes I've ever tried. Accented here with 18k gold...this will be one of my first summer manis in 2015!

OPI Infinite Shine polishes, pt. 2

This is the second set in this 3-part series on OPI’s new Gel Effects Lacquer System, Infinite Shine which includes the Primer and the Gloss topcoat. I’m thrilled with how pigmented these polishes are. Today I’ll be sharing two more from the six on my shelf! To Infinity & Blue-yond and Indignantly Indigo.

This pastel blue, To Infinity & Blue-yond will look great this summer when my tan returns! And then there's this wintery indigo perfect for this winter season, Indignantly Indigo.

New OPI swatch series! Infinite Shine system, pt. 1

First let me tell you I will be presenting six polishes in sets of two (my goal is each post a few days apart). Along with this six out of 30 stunning shades, the Gel Effects Lacquer System includes the Primer and the Gloss topcoat. For 10-day wear and flawless shine, this is a superior system. By the end of this series, I will share with you my wear findings, but for now, I’ll be describing color, shine, application and formula. So lets get started! First to get the wear and shine guaranteed by OPI for this system, you really, really do want to include the Primer and Gloss.

Inifinite Shine Primer and Gloss topcoat are what sets this system apart.

I experimented, just for grins, one of the shades without the Primer and found application a bit streaky and on the thin side. I thought, hmmm, not too sure about this. Then I applied the fast drying Primer which dries to a satin/slightly shiny finish. It dries quickly so by the time you get to your fifth finger, you’re ready to apply your color. This is the part that astounded me. Application of the color was totaly different, and I might say, a dream. It went on smooth and less streaky, still required two coats (my experiment was with Can’t Be Beet). Dried medium time and I waited about 5 minutes before topping it off with the medium dry time Gloss topcoat. Superior shine and color. Brushes are typical of all OPI brushes. No issues whatsoever. Now let’s see the first two shades for the series.

Infinite Shine "Can't Be Beet" is so aptly named. Two beautiful coats of beet red shine.

I love beets with butter! And Can’t Be Beet is a dead ringer for beets! And it goes on like butter with the Primer underneath.

Here is the second for the series this week, Maintaining My Sand-ity.

Infinite Shine by OPI's "Maintaining My Sand-ity" is a nicely pigmented perfect sand creme. Of course, where there's sand, a kitty is sure to be nearby! ;-)

Same story. Maintaining My Sand-ity is a great formula. Oh, the name just made me want to have a bit of fun. For some reason I just pictured a kitty sitting on a pile of sand (no, it’s not cat litter!).

Maintaining My Sand-ity is perfect in two coats, as is this glorious beet red in Can't Be Beet.
