***Press Sample***Hello Lovely People,
Today I have for you the swatches for the new OPI collection for Spring/Summer 2014. The Brazil collection has beautiful and vibrant creme shades. To complete the collection, OPI added four Beach Sandies (Liquid Sand) shades.
Brazil by OPI brings the colors of tropical rainforests and warm sandy beaches to nails and toes forSpring/Summer 2014. This new collection features a palette ranging from bright hues of red, pink, coral, orange and yellow to earthy tones of taupe, sienna, mocha and jungle green. In addition to 12 nail lacquers, theBrazil launch includes a set of four limited edition Beach Sandies Liquid Sand™ mini neon nail lacquers in bold purple, pink, turquoise and yellow shades with a textured, matte finish.“With sun-soaked shores, tropical fruits, and lush flora/fauna, Brazil is such an inspiring locale,” exclaims Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “I wanted women around the world to embrace the energy and playfulness for which Brazilian women are known. Through the Brazil collection, with shades drenched in color and charged with shine, women can express themselves, showing off their sexy, mysterious, fun and exciting natures. “On spring runways, models were seen wearing lots of black and white, with bold accents of orange and yellow and muted elements of taupe and clay,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Brazil by OPI provides vivid hues to add a pop of color to a neutral-toned wardrobe, as well as earthy tones that easily transition from day to night.”
Where Did Suzi Man-Go? This is a light mango orange creme. The formula was very good and was opaque in two coats.
Kiss Me I'm Brazilian This is a medium bright pink creme. Excellent formula, opaque in two easy coats.
Toucan Do It If You Try An orange/coral shade. Great formula. It needed two coats to be opaque.
Red Hot Rio is a bright crelly red. Awesome formula, I applied three coats.
OPI Scores A Goal! is a dark reddish purple, another good formula and opaque in two coats.
Taupe-Less Beach is a greyish taupe creme. I used two coats.
AmazOn...AmazOff this is a teal shade with a subtle hidden shimmer to it. One of my favorites in this collection. Amazing formula and was opaque in two easy coats.
Next Stop...The Bikini Zone it's a very subtle duo-chrome sheer shade, this shifted from purple to grey depending on the light. I applied three coats.
I Just Can't Cope-Acabana a stunning yellow creme with an awesome formula. It was opaque in two easy coats.
Live.Love.Carnaval is a bright coral creme. I needed two coats to obtain full opacity.
I Sáo Paulo Over There is a dark brown-ish taupe creme. Very good formula, opaque in two coats.
Don't Bossa Nova Me Around my absolutely favorite from this collection, this is the kind of nude that goes well against my skin tone. It's a light pink tone nude. Excellent formula and it was opaque in two coats.
The Beach Sandies these come in a mini bottle, that make me so sad because they are amazing, bright and shimmery, perfect for summer.
I didn't apply base or top coat for the Liquid Sand shades.
Samba-dy Loves Purple its a violet shade.
I'm Brazil Nuts Over You a bright coral-y pink.
What's A Little Rain Forest? this is an amazing icy blue shade.
You're So Flippy Floppy a bright sunny yellow.
Overall, I love this collection, all of the colors are amazing, the formula was great. This is a win for OPI, the liquid sand shades are stunning, I just wish they came in a full size bottle.
My favorites are Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, AmazOn...AmazOff, Where Did Suzi Man-Go? and I Just Can't Cope-Acabana. What's A Little Rain Forest? is my favorite from the Beach Sandies.
