OPI Iceland Collection Fall/Winter 2017

I had not done an actual swatching session in a really long time–at least not an OPI swatch session which usually consists of 12+ bottles in one collection. To be honest, I was glad to see that the OPI Iceland Collection is “only” 12 bottles because my fingers and nails just aren’t up to the task of swatching a gazillion bottles in one sitting. In the past, I used to swatch up to 40 bottles in one sitting–how did I ever do that?? I know that there are plenty of in demand swatchers who regularly do this today so props to them because I can’t do this anymore. Anywho, today I’m going to show you my swatches of the OPI Iceland Collection which is OPI’s offering for Fall/Winter 2017. Let me show you my swatches before we get into the deets.

First of all, if you don’t like cremes, then you’re probably not going to like this collection. And if you don’t like cremes, I won’t trust your opinion anyway. Just kidding. Sort of. Look, I adore creme polishes so of course I was in heaven here when it comes to finishes. This collection consists of 9 cremes, 2 shimmers and 1 frost/shimmer. We all know that the star of this show is Turn On The Northern Lights! so I’m not even going to pretend that this isn’t my favorite polish of the whole collection. My light box lighting definitely does not show how amazing this polish can look so let me show you a picture that I took in direct/bright sunlight:

Beautiful, right?!?!?! The other shimmer in the collection is a light blue called Check Out The Old Geysirs. The shimmer was impossible to capture because it is extremely delicate, but when you catch it at the right angle, it’s sooooo pretty. There are some very typical creme colors in this collection and I probably could have done with less brown/taupe/mauve. My other favorite is Less Is Norse which is his like denim blue color that reminds me of the Chanel denim polishes we went nuts for a few years ago. I don’t have anything crazy to report when it comes to the formula and application: they were all pigmented and applied well. All were opaque at two coats and I applied one coat of Poshe for my swatches. Actually, I take that back: Turn On The Northern Lights! was the only sheer-sh polish in this collection and I did apply 3 coats to build up the color. This leads me to believe that it could be a great layering polish–experiments to follow.

So what do you think? Have you picked up any of these shades from the OPI Iceland Collection? Since this collection has been out a good solid moth, I’m sure you’ve already gotten a few and might end up getting more…amiright? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

    First of all- 40 polishes in ONE day?!?!? Those swatchers are super-human. They have to be, lol. My favorite here is This Isn’t Greenland. I love cremes, so I really like them all. Shimmers, too.

    How does Poshe work for you? I actually haven’t tried that one yet.

    Oh my word, this collection is gorgeous AND your swatches are delicious! I want the whole set something serious!

    I love cremes, but I do feel like OPI over does cremes. But This isn’t Greenland is totally my kind of shade, and of course Turn on the Northern Lights is fab!!

    I liked this collection better than I expected – I got the mini sets plus the shimmer polishes. And man, I could never do 40 polish swatching sessions. 9 is my all time max.
