Hi everyone! I am very excited about today's post! This is my official swatch and review for the OPI Nordic Collection for Fall/Winter 2014! I love OPI, and this collection is no exception...everything is high quality and easy to work with! This collection is essentially golden browns, purples and a few unexpected brights. Seriously, it puts me in the mood for new boots, football and hot chocolate. :) Let's take a look...
All swatches were done with CND Stickey base coat, two coats of polish and OPI Top Coat unless otherwise noted.
First up is OPI Can't Afjörd Not To, a bright orange creme. How awesome is it that there are brights in this Fall/Winter collection?! The bright shades just have the perfect amount of dustiness so that they make sense for the season. This is two easy coats!
Another bright shade, OPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm? is a bright purple. I really love this! Two creamy coats.
OPI Going My Way Or Norway? is a golden deep tan creme. I'm not sure it plays nice with my skin tone, but it is a lovely color for Fall...I'd like to play with it as the base for some nail art! This is two easy coats.
OPI How Great Is Your Dane? is a cool taupe-y brown. This shade is so nice...I loved brown polishes last winter but never had one that was so cool-toned. Love it! Two flawlessly smooth coats.
OPI Ice-Bergers & Fries is a warm caramel creme. So gorgeous for Fall and Winter! Again, this is two easy coats. All of these cremes have a classic OPI formula.
OPI My Dogsled Is A Hybrid is a dusty teal, perhaps unexpected in a mainstream Fall/Winter release! Personally, I love this pop of color and can't wait to wear this shade as a full manicure. This is two easy coats.
OPI My Voice Is A Little Norse is a silver and holographic microglitter in a milky gray base. So pretty...perfect New Year's Eve shade (too early?!). This is three coats on its own, but you could also layer it over another shade. For such a dense glitter, it was easy to work with.
OPI OPI With A Nice Finn-ish is a metallic gold polish. While this one isn't my favorite, it is pretty and may be nice paired with some of the cremes in this collection for nail art. While the brush strokes aren't super obvious, you should still be cautious with application. This is two coats.
OPI Skating On Thin Ice-Land is a dark red-toned plum. This is super pretty! Two easy coats.
OPI Suzi Has A Swede Tooth is a rosy pink creme...not something you'd expect to see in a Fall/Winter release, but I love it. I feel like this shade of pink is bold, yet soft at the same time. This is two easy coats.
OPI Thank Glogg It's Friday! is a burgundy with pink shimmer throughout. This is more what I'd expect to see in a cold-weather collection. It almost has a holiday feel to it. This was two easy coats.
OPI Viking In A Vinter Vonderland is a classic vampy dark purple polish. It wouldn't be Fall without this shade. This is two coats.
Overall, I am loving the Nordic Collection! While it still feels a bit early to be playing with darker Fall shades and some of them aren't super unique, I love the bolder colors and the formula is spot-on for all of them! You can't beat an OPI creme! This collection will be available in OPI lacquer and OPI GelColor in August 2014! Which shades are your favorites?!
