OPI Pop Culture Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! Today I have the new/upcoming 6 piece Pop Culture Collection from OPI. You all are going to think I’ve lost my mind when you see the photos below, but I am not hating this collection! Keep in mind you are seeing up close and expanded photos and they don’t look all that appealing, but in real life, at arm’s length, these do not look that bad. I actually really love a couple of them and at least one of them I would not wear again.

Now, I am a big fan of textured polishes. I have all the Zoya PixieDusts, OPI Liquid Sands, and a few from L’oreal among others. You do have to be a fan of gritty texture or just turn away now, these are not for you! In my opinion, these do not look good with topcoat and even worse with matte topcoat. They actually are not as bumpy and obnoxious if you layer one coat over a similar base color either. I will show you all of that below.

I bought these from PolishPick.com. You can find them HERE. I am not really affiliated, I do buy the polish from them but I am a choice in their drop down menu of where you heard about the company. I don’t get any perks if you do or don’t pick me, but please choose my name if you do make a purchase! I am not affiliated with OPI.

I do have a lot of photos today!

OPI Grease Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 2


Hi everyone! Today I have the next 6 polishes from the upcoming OPI summer collection! This collection corresponds with the 40th anniversary of Grease the movie! As I said in Part 1, I may or may not be old enough to have seen this when it originally came out in theaters (I’ll never tell!) but I do still own the vinyl record!

Be warned that if you’re familiar with the songs from Grease, some of these names will cause you to be humming the songs all day!

I bought this collection from PolishPick.com.  They have all the recent OPI collections (plus many other brands too!) for great prices and reasonable (and quick) shipping!

You can check out the mini collection of Leather Like Effect polishes HERE.

As usual, there are a lot of photos today!!

OPI Grease Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 1


Hi everyone! Today I have the first 6 polishes from the new/upcoming OPI Grease Collection to share with you! This is the 40th Anniversary of Grease the movie! I may or may not be old enough to have seen this in a theater when it first came out (I’ll never tell!) but I do still have the original vinyl album!

Grease is one of a handful of movies I would watch over and over. It’s been a long time now since I’ve seen it. I was really looking forward to this collection when I heard it was coming!

As I was painting my nails with some of these I got an ear worm of the song the polish related to, so that was a fun remembrance!

I bought this collection from Polishpick.com.  They have good prices and reasonable (and quick!) shipping! Check them out HERE.

Check out the other 6 polishes in the Grease Collection Part 2 HERE!

As always, I have a lot of photos today!!

OPI Lisbon Collection – Spring 2018 // Sally Beauty and Ulta Store Exclusive Colors


Hi everyone! I became aware that the OPI Lisbon Collection had store exclusives and ordered them online right away. Both Sally Beauty and Ulta have 3 exclusive colors each. I ordered mine online so I am not sure if they are in stores or not, but I just checked both online stores and they all seem to be available still (as of my writing this post).  There are also some comparisons at the bottom of the post with other Lisbon Collection colors. I am not affiliated with OPI, Sally Beauty or Ulta.
