OPI released a new line of core colours for 2014. It is a set of 15 stunning lacquers that are a great addition to their existing shades. Along with these new colours are a quick dry top coat, a matte coat, a 3 in 1 base, top and strengthener coat and a cuticle oil that came out for 2014 as well.
The polishes in this set are:
Be Awesome –> A rainbow of light that takes your breath away.
Sweet Surrender –> Defeat looks sweet when wearing this pink blush.
Fabulous is My Middle Name –> Pink and silver super-shimmer is my game.
Always a Flirt! –> This luminous fuchsia is more than just a wink of pink.
Something About Spring –> When I saw this hot pink, it bloom my mind!
At Least I Pink So –> I’ve got this pretty bubblegum pink on my mind.
I’ll Have the Salmon –> I’m hooked on this peachy-pink!
Yoga-then-Yogurt –> Oh my! This creamy white is quite yummy!
That’s Putting it Mild –> This luscious, creamy nude makes a big fashion statement.
Taupe of My Class –> This earthy taupe is a real overachiever.
I Shop Mintage –> A timeless minty green with real retro appeal.
Teal Me Something New –> This of-the-moment teal has headline-making style.
Oh That’s Just Grape! –> How am I supposed to resist this cool and juicy violet?
The Blue is So You! –> This dramatically dark blue was created with you in mind.
Emerald Empowered –> When I wear this gemstone green, I feel like I can conquer the world!
For this design I used Oh That’s Just Grape!, Taupe of my Class, and This Blue is so You. I also used the 3 in 1 top/base coat and finished it off with the matte top coat.
I loved working with these colours on my nails and enjoyed how they worked together even though they are all very different hues. The matte coat added a different spin to the design and I really liked how it turned out.
What I thought was really awesome was the cuticle oil. I have used different cuticle oils over the years but this one is my new favorite. It has a small brush at the end to apply the oil and has yummy smell to it too! It’s a nice size to store at home or carry with you in your purse to keep your nails looking healthy 24/7.
This collection has a huge range of colours from dark blues to light tans that are perfect for any and every occasion!
