New OPI goodness

I received a new 6-pack of goodness from 8ty8beauty this week.  Don't you love receiving packages?  I find it more exciting than walking into a store and coming out with a paper bag.

5 new colours and a base coat arrived.  Isn't it amazing that 6 colours, plus extremely expensive postage equals 2.5 polishes at David Jones?

From left to right:

  • OPI - Bullish on OPI - a red/very very dark pink/clay colour.  No shimmer.
  • OPI - OPI On Collins Ave - a really bright red/orangey colour. No shimmer.
  • OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark (matte version) - a very very deep purple.  An OPI classic.  This one is ultra matte.  Only one coat required.
  • Orly - OMG - the perfect bright pink. No shimmer.
  • OPI - A Oui Bit Of Red - bright red with a shimmer.
OPI does amazing reds.  The best, easiest to apply, true red, without shimmer is Big Apple Red.

    Oooh have you tried any out yet

  2. I am sooo with you on the subject of receiving packages! I guess that's one of the reasons I love hunting for treasures in mail order catalogues and on Ebay and other online shopping sites.

    And I did just the same as you, got a whole lot of OPI polishes online for far less than it would have cost me in the store:

    Haven't gotten around to try them all just yet though, as I've been obsessed with the Chanel 505 polish for spring. But I think you just inspired me to change my color right now. :)

  3. No I haven't tried them yet! I will post up photos as I wear them :)


  4. I am yet to discover OPI.
    All the cool bloggers are using it - maybe i should too.

  5. I've seen the Lincoln Park one in a couple of other places - might be time to try it, I think!
