My first OPIs

I posted a few days ago about the floodgates being opened on lots of new brands for me. Since OPI was one of them I thought it would be fun to post the ones I picked out from the hundreds available to add to my stash as my "first OPIs".

After sifting through thousands of swatches these are the ones I got in my first official OPI order. I probably should have divided this into a few posts but what the hell! Let the shiny new OPI spamage begin!


















After swatching all these I can say 2 things without a doubt. One is that I am an official OPI convert, and second, OPI is the most all over the place, hit or miss formula out of any other polish brand I have tried. Some are 4 coats some are 2, some streak some are smooth. It's like playing the lottery. Overall I am really happy with the polishes I chose to break myself in to the brand.

What do you all think of the first OPIs I picked?

Love, MM

  1. GREAT colors!! I want to pick a favorite, but I just...can't. I have only a few OPIs and I love them, and agree with your "all over the place" formula comment.

  2. I have Absolutely Alice and love it- until I have to take it off, lol. I think I need Opi Ink, Black Cherry Chutney (normally I don't like dark colors like that, but it looks so pretty!) Definitely need Merry Midnight! A grape fit looks like a fun spring/summer color and I never considered a color like this before, but I really like You don't know Jacques! Most of the OPIs I have are the DS shades and they were all consistent, I'll have to try 'regular' colors and see!

  6. Just a question: Does Merry Midnight contain flakies?? Or are those flecks just chunks of glitter?

  11. What do you think of your OPI experience? Worth the money? One of my most favourite polishes are "Tickle my France-y" and "Dulce de Leche"!! You have some lovely colours there, great start to your OPI collection!
