OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 Collection

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 Collection Swatches

I really loved the bright cheerful cremes of the OPI Hello Kitty Collection so I was excited to find even more in the new OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 Collection*. If you are looking to perk up your nails you’ll definitely want to check out these 12 new shades!

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Crawfishin For a Compliment Swatch

OPI Crawfishin For a Compliment: This light, creamy orange is perfect on me, isn’t it?

This peachy orange is perfect for spring and summer, and although it is a bit uneven using a larger “drop” of polish helps solve that. It took 2 coats for an opaque finish.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Got Myself into a Jam-balaya Swatches

OPI Got Myself into a Jam-balaya: A yummy mélange of spice and creamy peach.

This peachy pink creme polish took 2 coats for an opaque finish but I did find it a little uneven. However, also very spring and a lovely colour.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Humidi-Tea Swatches

OPI Humidi-Tea: Beat the heat in this nude shimmer.

This is a pretty, rosy peachy nude shimmer with a slightly thin but decent formula. I used two coats.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI I Manicure for Beads Swatches

OPI I Manicure for Beads: Throw me nothing but this luscious purple crème!

I LOVE this shade! From first seeing it in the bottle, to applying it on the nail, it was perfection. This purple grape creme is nearly opaque in 1 coat and gorgeous with 2.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI I'm Sooo Swamped Swatches

OPI I’m Sooo Swamped: This verdant, creamy green is drenched in style.

Another favourite of mine, this grassy green creme still seems a bit unique in my collection, or at least among polishes I’ve reviewed in the last year. It’s got a great formula with 2 coats and it was definitely on my nails for St. Patrick’s Day.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Let Me Bayou a Drink SwatchesOPI Let Me Bayou a Drink: This refreshing blush pink is my treat.

This pale pink has a hint of iridescence to it but the formula was sheer and uneven so it took me three coats.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Rich Girls & Po Boys Swatches

OPI Rich Girls & Po Boys: Make a date with this china blue crème.

I just love blue polish and this was definitely another favourite of mine.  This gorgeous cornflower blue creme could possibly get away with one thick coat, although I went with two.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI She's a Bad Muffuletta! SwatchesOPI She’s a Bad Muffuletta!: Don’t mess with this hot red crème!

This gorgeous red coral creme is pretty much opaque with 1 coat, although I used 2. It has a flawless formula and is a perfect shade for spring and summer.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Show Us Your Tips Swatches

OPI Show Us Your Tips: Let’s see how this periwinkle shimmer looks on you.

This sheer perwinkle has a scattered glassy shimmer to it that’s really pretty but unfortunately quite sheer. I went with 3 coats but you can still see some visible nail line, so it might be best applied over another polish.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Spare Me a French Quarter SwatchesOPI Spare Me a French Quarter?: Say oui-oui to this mellowed raspberry crème.

Yet another perfect creme, this shade is a gorgeous plummy pink dark raspberry. It’s almost opaque with one coat, and again, I used two.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI Suzi Nails New Orleans SwatchesOPI Suzi Nails New Orleans: This light, bright pink hits the spot for chic.

This bubblegum white-based pink creme is a bit uneven at first although that is mostly fixed with 2 coats.

OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 OPI take a Right on Bourbon Swatches

OPI Take a Right on Bourbon: An intoxicatingly warm, metallic pewter.

This is a sheer, frosty silvery champagne with an unfortunately streaky finish even after 2 coats. These are definitely not my favourite kind of shades but it does add variety to the collection.

I can’t rave enough about the OPI New Orleans Spring 2016 Collection. There is a gorgeous colourful mix of shades and so many of OPI’s perfect creme polishes. I have so many favourites including OPI I Manicure for Beads, I’m Sooo Swamped, Rich Girls & Po Boys, She’s a Bad Muffuletta! and Spare me a French Quarter… so basically half the collection. Can you blame me? What’s your favourite shade?
