OPI Brights Collection 2015

So what did you think of the Oscars…or are you one of those people who refuses to watch? I like the pretty dresses and like it when the host kills it (good and bad) so I usually tune in. This year, I feel like I wasn’t super invested in the actual awards because I did not watch a single movie from the Best Picture pool. I did recently watch Ida which won Best Foreign Film and it was pretty fucking amazing and devastating so make sure that you watch it. I am a huge movie buff so I’m way behind on watching movies lately yet I managed to watch 50 Shades of Grey–oh the shame! The most moving part of the whole show was Graham Moore’s speech after winning for Best Adapted Screenplay–watch it if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Besides the awards show, I did manage to get some swatching time in so I have 5 posts lined up already. I didn’t get a chance to swatch the OPI Hawaii collection yet (sorry to those who have asked!!!), but I did get some awesome stuff done. Today I have the OPI Brights Collection for 2015 to share with you! The Winter/Spring colors are gone, yo! Let me show you these pretties.

When I saw this polish in the bottle, I wanted it on my nails STAT. Look how saturated the color is!!! Unfortunately, I found the formula not very pleasant to work with. It seemed water and thin and the formula resembled that of a neon where it dries quickly and kind of to a satin finish. Oh, and it also stinks like some blue polishes tend to so be prepared. I applied 3 coats for my swatches and then topcoated it for a shiny finish. Despite the sorta crappy formula, I still love it.

As soon as I saw this pink glitter, I knew it was meant to go over My Car Has Navy-gation. This is a very traditional glitter topper so there is not much to say about it. Application is very easy and there is no need to fish for glitter. Now I want to wear it over black!

Oh man…this is gorgeous. This delicious berry creme is what my polish dreams are made of. I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough creamy pink polishes in any hue. The formula on this is perfect so you’ll love it–trust me.

Oh look, a red from OPI because we all don’t have enough of those. This red is an orange leaning jelly that is opaque at two coats. It’s not exciting to me so that’s all I have to say about it.

OPI I Can't Hear Myself Pink! 1OPI I Can't Hear Myself Pink! 2OPI I Can’t Hear Myself Pink!

To be honest, I am not a huge fan of this shimmery/metallic finish, but the color is nice…you know how much I love pink polish. The formula was super easy to work with and was opaque at 2 coats.

 One thing that you can’t really see in my picture is that the polish has a slight pink sheen in the bottle that almost but disappears on the nail. Sadness. However, the vibrant blue polish is pretty awesome even if I’m not a huge fan of the finish.

So what do you think of this collection? Are these Brights bright enough for you? Is it too early for this considering it’s still bitterly cold in some areas? This collection will not be out until May so you’ll have plenty of time to think if you want any of these. Well, I hope you had a nice weekend and that your Monday isn’t too horrible. I look forward to hearing what you think of this collection, so let me know in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

    I don’t know why but that “granny colour” of I can’t Hear Myself Pink just rocks! I also like my car has Navi-gator on you and Pinks and Needles 😀

    My top picks are: The Berry Thought of You and Pinks & Needles. Your swatches are amazeballs, but that comes as no surprise.

    I think I’m going to need on pinks and needles. I actually don’t think I have anything like it. Shocking I know.

    As you well know, I went to an Oscars party for the first time ever, haha. It was only about the fashion (I was kind of surprised we didn’t watch the actual Oscars), but I hadn’t seen any of the movies and usually don’t watch it, so I guess it doesn’t matter. The fashion was a let-down (I feel like they never interviewed actual stars and a lot of the women had way too casual hair and/or make-up) and I hated everything the female hosts were wearing (Kelly Osbourne, Khloe Kardashian (why? – because E!, that’s why), Guiliana Rancic (her dress looked like a long version of an ice skating costume and her contour color was unfortunate), and that Zanna chick from Marie Clare/Project Runway (she was wearing a pink princess gown and her hair was all straggly in her face). ANYWAY.
    It’s a shame about that blue because it’s purty. I think the pink glitter is my favorite. The berry is perfection on you and the shimmers…eeehhh.
