As much as I love bright colors, I have to admit that when fall rolls around those deep, vampy shades pull at my heart strings. I just love a dark nail -it’s totally chic and badass. So when I was recently (and so generously -thank you OPI, you da best♡) sent all 15 shades of OPI’s newly released San Francisco collection, I died a little. They’re (mostly) dark, fall-y, and pretty damn beautiful -so I knew I couldn’t overwhelm you will all 15 shades at once. This week will be full on OPI, and I’ll be posting the rest of the to-die-for collection on Wednesday and Friday. But today’s, it’s all about the blues. All photos are two coats + topcoat, except the liquid sand shades.
Dining Al Frisco is a pretty, cool blue that’s slightly metallic and has silver shimmer running throughout. It’s not my favourite of the collection, but it’s nice on and looked a lot better on the nail than in the bottle. It was easy to apply, but you have to watch out for brush strokes, which is pretty much the case with all polishes like this. I definitely like this one.
Keeping Suzi at Bay is a true navy blue. It’s not too dark, not too light -basically just right (yay for rhyming). It’s really opaque and went on super smoothly. I think it’s gorgeous, and I’m really into blue polish, so this one is a winner in my books.
I feel like Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! is basically Keeping Suzi at Bay but in Liquid Sand form. I’m personally not huge on textured polish that’s flat (i.e where the glitter at?) but it’s nice nonetheless. I just find this shade super similar to KSaB -which means pick one or the other, but not both unless you absolutely, really need to (either way I’ll totally support you -I mean, they’re completely different. Purchasing both is so justifiable).
I am IN LOVE with Incognito in Sausalito. Like, obsessed. It can never leave my side. It’s a deep, inky blue that completely epitomizes those vampy colors I have a thing for. I’ll wear this for the entire fall season… and then winter and summer and spring, too. Just obsessed.
Okay so when I saw Alcatraz… Rocks in the bottle, I thought, meh. But I swear OPI is sneaky with their polish. Am I the only one that finds a lot of their shades are completely mediocre on the shelf, but when you put them on they magically transform into heavenly goodness? Well, that’s what happened with this little secret gem. It is literally like staring into a starry night’s sky -one that’s overflowing with prettiness, all right there on your nail. It’s gorgeous, and that’s all you need to know.
So tell me, ladies, do you like these blues? Do you have any colors from this collection? And just how excited are you for Wednesday and Friday’s posts (I know I am)? Tell me! ♡
