OPI Holiday 2018 collection - Nutcracker and the Four Realms

8:54 PM

Hi everyone,
This year OPI has teams up with the Nutcracker and the Four Realms movie to create a beautiful, festive and gorgeous holiday collection!
I've already worn as full manicures quite a lot of shades here and I must admit that I've fallen in love again with metallic polishes! I just love Berry Very Fun (purple) and Dazzling Dew Drop (gold) so much!! :D In this collection I also particularly love Dreams Need Clara-fication (baby blue with a hint of lavender) and Envy the Adventure (forest green)!

All the colors are available in classic Nail Lacquer, Infinite Shine, and GelColor formulas.

Berry Fairy Fun - Pause, take a deep breath and smell the flowers that inspired this purple long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats, not brush stroke prone, just perfect! I am so very impressed by this color and it looks 100x better in real life because it plays beautifully with the light!

Black to Reality - Beware! Like the forest, this deep red long-lasting nail polish is dark, thick, foreboding – and absolutely exhilarating.
Used 2 coats. This is such a deep and vampy shade as I love them!

Candied Kingdom - Some candy, you’ll find, can be rather hot and spicy- like this red long-lasting nail polish!
Used 2 coats. It's a jelly-cream hybrid. The jelly part makes it really looks like a candy! I first thought this was just another red but I ended up loving it so much (because of that cute candy finish) that I've already worn it twice!!

Dancing Keeps Me on My Toes - Waltz among magical snowflakes on your way to the ballet wearing this metallic long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. This is another very well executed metallic polish. It's not brush stroke prone and looks just super gorgeous. Normally I don't like metallic white but this one totally surprised me, probably because of the very nice formula (no brush stroke). It also has some tiny gold glitters that plays nicely with the light!

Dazzling Dew Drop - You’ll get a glint in your eye when you see the delicious digs of this metallic long-lasting nail polish
Used 2 coats. This one is also a gorgeous meallic. The color is beautiful and elegant and the metallic finish beautiful! A favorite of mine :D

Dreams Need Clara-fication - This blue long-lasting nail polish will have you wanting to get cozy in a charming village perched on the edge of a glacier.
Used 2 coats. Another one that surprised me and that I absolutely love. The color is quite unique! I really like it!

Envy the Adventure - A land of blooms must be grounded in green like this long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. You know I love my greens and this one is no exception. This is the perfect holiday green. I got many compliments on it when I wore this one!

Ginger’s Revenge - The tyrant of the Fourth Realm will have you seeing red in long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. This is a deep red with a hint of brown in it.

Lavendare to Find Courage - Open your heart – like a blooming flower – to the many hues abound, especially this purple long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. Another one I really like because I've been loving pastel colors more and more recently.

March in Uniform - When surrounded by menacing mice, follow the young man in uniform matching this blue long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. This is a super deep navy blue.

Toying with Trouble - The delicacies decorating the sweet surroundings will make you blush even brighter than this pink long-lasting nail polish.
Used 2 coats. This is a super bright fuchsia!

Tinker, Thinker, Winker? - In this land of ice and snow, the light twinkles and glows (just like this metallic long-lasting nail polish!)
Used 3 coats for full coverage. It can be used as a topper if you use a thin coat.

Overall I'm super happy with this new OPI collection. I'm actually quite impressed that after so many years I can still be surprised and fall in love with new polishes! Good job, OPI!!

  1. Hey, Karine! I just felt in love with Candied Kingdom - I prefer juicy colours, perfect and cold. What about this lacquers life-cycle? I mean how long did you wear chip-free? Being honest, I rely on OPI brand as ordering my gel colors only by their production like couple of years for sure ( usually making my orders for OPI from here ) So I know about their gel quality, although I'm absolutely not aware about nail polishes quality. Were you satisfied after all? As for my pedicure I'd like to try polish instead of gel, as heard that it could be less harmful for my nails.
