OPI New Orleans Collection

So how about them Oscars, eh? There were parts that felt super awkward but overall I enjoyed the show. I have always enjoyed watching them so I always look forward to the glitz and glamour. This weekend seemed to just fly by, and I had about a million things to get done: guess how many of those chores I actually got done. Regardless, I at least got some swatching done and have plenty of content for the coming week. Today I have my swatches of the OPI New Orleans Collection to share with you. I know a lot of people have complained that this color palette is not representative of such a vibrant and rich city. Let me show you my swatches and then I will let you know what I think of the collection.

Let me just get one thing out of the way: WHY? WHY??? Why do we continue to get shades like Take A Right On Bourbon in every single collection? I can’t stand shimmery silver metallics and there seems to be at least one of them in every single OPI collection for the last…5 million years. Yes, I feel strongly about this. Anyway, moving on… I have to say that I love, love, love the shades in this collection. While they may not be faithfully representative of such a rich city, they are gorgeous colors on their own. The formula on all of these was rather spot on, and I can’t think of any shades that I found particularly hard to work with. Overall, this is a beautiful collection that any creme lover will approve of. There are some stand-outs like Show Us Your Tips!, but they are all great. Now I want to hear what you think! Have you picked up any of these shades? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

    There are a few shades I like, but overall I’m meh on this collection. I feel like the ones I do like are really close to colors from previous collections. I want some new exciting colors!

      Party pooper! 😛 I know what you mean, though. I just can’t turn away from cremes. I want them all. I love them all.

    Ugh, that frostiness on the top. #no
    I like the green one, but it won’t look good on me, sooooo…meh? I guess at least my wallet will thank me, haha.

      Boo. I love the majority of these but you know how I feel about cremes.

    Ooh, I have 6 of those currently on my wish list. Rich Girls and Po Boys and I Manicure For Beads are my top two picks. I’m Soo Swamped is also a fav. I love greens. As always, your swatches make them all look beautiful.

      Thank you, Cindi! You picked some really great ones from this collection. I am also very partial to greens lately.

    I just got Show Me Your Tips. How many coats did yours take? I just put on one coat last night about an hour before bed so it wouldn’t smudge and it was almost transparent. So this is gonna be a 4 coater? I am a purple girl and I love this in the bottle.

      It is pretty sheer. I applied 3 coats which I’m ok with because it’s a nice polish. If it was a 3 coat creme, I might not be as forgiving.
