Why are kids so exhausting? My brother brought over the brats after work yesterday and they wore me out. We took them to the park so they could go nuts for a while before we went back to my place for dinner. I wish I could have their energy because they just ran around like lunatics and never seemed to get tired. It was really nice spending the evening with them so I’m glad they came over. Well, for today’s post I have a few polishes from the OPI Tokyo Collection that I picked up this weekend. I was tempted to get all 12, but I decided to get the 6 that called to me at first glance. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
OPI Rice Rice Baby
OPI Arigato From Tokyo
OPI Hurry-juku Get This Color!
OPI Samurai Breaks A Nail
OPI Kanpai OPI!
OPI Chopstix And Stones
First let me say that while I like puns, OPI has to do better when it comes to being culturally sensitive. Rice Rice Baby? Really? Don’t come at me with the whole “You’re too PC” or “You get offended by everything!” If OPI came out with a brown polish from the Mexico Collection called Beans Beans Baby, you better believe I’d be annoyed. I don’t know how you feel about it, but I find it kinda blah. I haven’t looked into the names of the other polishes that I didn’t get so I hope that there aren’t any others that will raise any eyebrows. Putting the puns aside, the cremes that I purchased are absolutely delicious. I’ve said it a million times and I will repeat it again: OPI sure knows how to do cremes right! All of the cream shades that I purchased applied like a dream: smooth, creamy and opaque after two coats. Samurai Breaks A Nail and Chopstix And Stones are heavy shimmers. While I was able to get away with 2 coats of Chopstix And Stones, I needed 3 coats of Samurai Breaks A Nail. Samurai Breaks A Nail is also my absolute favorite from the 6 shades that I picked up because you can wear it alone or use it as a topper. It has such a beautiful glow and shimmer! Rice Rice Baby is a close second because it’s such a pretty and dusty pink that will look good on everybody.
In case you’re interested, head on over to my blog sale where I’ve put these polishes up for a deep discount. I want to keep them but they aren’t blowing me away since I may have close enough dupes from OPI/other brands so to the blog sale they go. What do you think about this collection? I think I may go back and check out the other shades that I initially passed on. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
