It might just be October but many brands are already releasing their Christmas products, so I’ll have a few to share on the blog, starting off with the Gwen Stefani Holiday for OPI Collection. It consists of a massive 18 shades, but I have 3 to share with you, OPI Christmas Gone Plaid*, I Carol About You*, and I’ll Tinsel You In*.
I love my dark greens, especially for fall and winter, so one of the first shades from the Gwen Stefani Holiday for OPI Collection that caught my attention was OPI Christmas Gone Plaid–or as my bottle said “Gone Paid”. This is a very dark emerald shade, that is still obviously green. The formula is a bit thin but incredibly pigmented and I am wearing only one coat in the photos. I would still go with two to even out the finish, but I really just wanted to share how good it looks with one! OPI Christmas Gone Plaid has a very glossy finish and is the perfect Christmas green.
It’s not an OPI Collection if I don’t pick up a purple, and the one I have from the Gwen Stefani Holiday for OPI Collection is OPI I Carol About You, a pigmented royal purple that’s a bit glowy without having that blue shift so many of them do. I also went with only one coat for this shade, because I was so impressed by how it looked that way, but next time I wear it I will definitely be adding a second. I wasn’t too worried this time because I was about to add GLITTER on top!
I topped off OPI I Carol About You from the Gwen Stefani Holiday for OPI Collection with one of the glitter shades, a black and white called OPI I’ll Tinsel You In. How cute is that name? It is filled with black and white bars, black dots and white squares. It is jam-packed with glitter and that is only one coat I’m wearing! I’m not usually a big fan of bar glitter, but there’s something graphic and cool about this shade. It doesn’t exactly scream Christmas when applied on top of purple, but I do like the end result for fall.
These are just three of the shades in the Gwen Stefani Holiday for OPI Collection, there are 15 more and they all look gorgeous. There’s also an amazing limited edition Don’t Speak Pure 18k Top Coat filled with gold leaf that I am desperately lusting over–how pretty does that sound, especially applied on top of Christmas Gone Plaid?
