OPI Soft Shades Collection 2015




I love obnoxious colors. Sometimes I think that the louder and more obnoxious my nails are, the better I feel. Is that weird? Whenever I do my nails, even if it is a simple manicure, people always seem to think it’s ok to grab my hands and inspect my nails. What if I am gross and don’t wash my hands after going to the restroom? I DO wash my hands every time, I was just using that as an example–I swear! I just think it’s kind of random that people do that (I even had a guy do that once), but I think I’ve gotten used to it over the years.So when soft and delicate colors come around, you would think that I I’d run the opposite direction, right? WRONG! I love soft colors as well because someone you want classy nails and don’t want some craziness on your fingertips. OPI puts out some of the best delicate colors, in my opinion, so I was definitely looking forward to this year’s OPI Soft Shades Collection. Let me show you what I’m talking about.

OPI Put It In Neutral 1OPI Put It In Neutral 2OPI Put It In Neutral

Doesn’t this kind of remind you of a lighter OPI Dulce de Leche? I seriously love this polish, but it is super sheer. I have to admit that I am not a sheer fan, so I applied 4 coats to get this opaque look. It’s one of those polishes that is supposed to be a wash of color on your nails but I couldn’t resist layering it up. I really love how it looks on my skintone

This one may not seem like much in the bottle, but hot diggity it’s beautiful. I adore how it looks over Put It In Neutral and I bet it will look awesome over a lot of different colors. Doesn’t this look like Spring in a bottle? The only thing is that fishing for the big flowers is kind of a pain but worth it at the end of the day. Soooo purty!

OPI Act Your Beige! 1OPI Act Your Beige! 2OPI Act Your Beige!

This is pretty much Put It In Neutral in a beige color. This also required 4 coats to be opaque but it’s not really meant to be opaque…but you know me and my OCD about sheer polishes. Still, it’s a beautiful and creamy polish.

This is like snow in a bottle. Do you even understand how much my pictures don’t capture the beauty of this polish? It sparkles so much in the light that it’s mesmerizing. I layered this over Act Your Beige!, but I bet it will look like hot lava over a dark color. Make note, Cynthia…don’t forget to try that soon.

And then we have this amazing white. It’s so icy yet so delicate! It has this amazing shimmer that isn’t captured very well in my pictures, but it is there and boy does it make this polish come alive. I applied 3 coats for my swatches above.

Dear OPI, can we please stop with the silver chromes? I hate them. No mas, por favor. That is all I have to say about this.

Overall, this collection is a winner in my book. The lone bad apple here is This Silver’s Mine, but I can put it aside and focus on how pretty the other ones are. Some of you may not like the sheer shades and I get it because I want opaque polishes too, but you cannot deny that the glitters are soooo pretty. This collections isn’t due to be out until May so don’t forget about them! I can already see myself using a few of these soon in some Stamping Saturdays looks. Which one is your favorite? I seriously can’t choose but if I had to, I’d probably go with Put It In Neutral and Petal Soft…it’s a tie, I tell ya. Or Chiffon My Mind…or Make Light Of The Situation. See? I told you I can’t pick–it’s an evil process anyway. Let me know what you think of this collection overall. Are you sick of silvers like I am? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. Oh no, they won’t be out until May!? I thought I had read March somewhere, and I was so excited for Petal Soft…*sobs*

  2. I love all of them but the silver. It looks really brushstokey and besides that who needs another silver? I have those from the holidays still. Silver DOES NOT say spring to me, nor does any other metallic. I love that floral glitter and must have that one first.

  3. I’m all for bold, in your face colors, but every so often you need a palette cleanser.
    These look perfect for that!

    I’m loving the glitter, but I’m with you on the silver!
    Why OPI keeps putting out brushstrokey silvers that are pretty much all the same, just with a different name is beyond me…

  4. Great swatches as always! I would love to see Make Light of the Situation over a darker shade whenever you get a chance, pretty please ? !

  5. I’m with ya. I usually like my nails bright or dark, but every so often (only every so often, lol), I can appreciate a nice, clean neutral. Then I get bored after two days and need to paint them blue or something, lol.
    These are nice, but I don’t know about the sheer…I’d have to make them opaque, like you did. That snowy one is pretty, though. And the silver…you are banished from this collection, silver.

  6. I’ve just bought Petal Soft, I’m completely, totally, madly in love!
    I’m hoping to buy some others soon, except This Silver’s Mine – what the heck is this doing in this collection, making even numbers? It simply does not go…!
