At first glance this isn’t the most exciting of collections but to me it’s very autumnal and worth a close look. As a collection it’s not exciting to look at but in this day and age where nail polish seems to be all about effects and duochromes it’s good to remind ourselves that creme colours can rock!

This is a twelve colour collection of which I have five to share with you.

Starting with French Quarter For Your Thoughts.

OPI French QUarter for your thoughts

A pale to mid grey creme. I like this colour, I have a problem with grey polish, many don’t flatter my hands at all and make my fingers look extremely red, but this doesn’t. It’s lovely and I think I might do this one with a Cloud Konad stamp.

I Brake For Manicures

A dark and dirty purple. I love it. I’ve not seen anything like it to be honest, but I’m not that well versed on all the polishes in the world. I just like this. It’s purple, but not as we know it.

At first glance, similar to the above shade and I suppose it is in tone. Except this isn’t purple it’s brown. Dirty Brown, a bit murky, rather than chocolatey. It’s nice but it doesn’t thrill me especially, browns rarely do, but if I was to wear browns, this would be more my cup of tea than a chocolatey shade. Does any of that make sense? It’s late a night. Bear with me…

I Eat Mainely Lobster

OPI I Eat Mainely Lobster

I should think this will be the most popular colour from the whole collection. It’s a bright coral with a very subtle shimmer. I don’t think it’s very Autumnal but I don’t have a problem with colours being seasonal really. I’m happy to wear black in the Summer and Lilac in winter. it’s a pretty colour.

My Address is Hollywood

OPI My Address is hollywood

This a nice colour. A very subtle shimmer again and another coral, but softer and pink-er. Interestingly, in real life this and I eat Mainely Lobster bottles look very similar, but actually they’re not. It’s not the most exciting colour I know, but it is “nice” and a really nice colour for day to day wear I think.

So that’s all the shades I have. All pictures above are two coats, no top coat and I found the application a breeze with all. Also, they dried very quickly.

Any take your fancy?

    Really like the first two, the grey would be my top pic if it didnt make my fingers look like boiled beef, but the other 3 are a bit uninspiring I think! Your nails are looking fab btw, hope the new job is going well too!

    These all look great with your skintone 🙂 I got ‘I Eat Mainely Lobster’ and ‘A Color to Diner For’ — which at first looks like a boring red/wine, but it has this very pretty shimmer to it! xx
