OPI Pirates of the Caribbean – SWATCHES!

Finally – they’ve arrived and they are oh-so-lovely!  Here are swatches of the new polishes, as well as pictures of each color in their bottles. We love them!

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Nail Lacquer Stranger Tides Nail Polish

In the image above, all the same polishes are coated with OPI Silver Shatter.  The top three hues on the right (Planks A Lot, Mermaid Tears and Stranger Tides) have the Silver Shatter applied in the normal direction, from top to bottom of the nail.  The next two shades (Skull & Glossbones, Stead As She Rose) have the Silver Shatter applied from side to side, for a different coating.  The last shade (Sparrow Me the Drama) has it applied in a wavy pattern.  We were excited to see the variation!

And, our absolute favorite thing we’ve seen from OPI this year: OPI BLACK SHATTER!!  Here’s Black Shatter applied to all of the Katy Perry colors.  Read tips below for making Black Shatter work for you!  You can order all of these colors here.

OPI Black Shatter with Katy Perry Collection In Stock Swatches

Note the difference an extra coat of OPI Black Shatter makes – cool huh!

Here are some tips for really making Black Shatter work for you:

1.  OPI Black Shatter is perfect for coating on any OPI color – not just Katy Perry.  The crazy bold brights have a powerful effect, and so do the really vampy violets and greens.  Experiment away.

2.  For OPI Black Shatter to work just right, your base coat nail polish color must be 100% dry.  In fact, we’re suggesting you paint your nails, go do something else, and come back sometime in the next hour to do your second coat, to make sure that the effect is perfect.

3.  Adding extra coats of OPI Black Shatter gives a totally different effect.  Check out the Black Shatter swatch all the way on the left (only one coat) compared to the swatch all the way on the right (two coats)- the cracks are much more prominent and separated.  The variety is awesome!

4. When you first apply the polish, it will look thin and uneven, but don’t worry – it’s supposed to! Shortly after it starts to dry, it will crack and separate for the effect above.

Enjoy!!

OPI Swiss Swatches & Pictures!

Ok, so I’m a little late for swatch week (my bad), but here are swatches of the OPI Swiss Collection.  These are absolutely gorgeous and incredibly unique.  Turquoise, teal, golds, blues, reds of every shade- it’s difficult not to find something for everyone in OPI’s newest Fall collection.

The best news?  YOU CAN ORDER THEM TODAY! We’re selling pre-orders here!

Without further ado:

OPI Swiss Collection Nail Lacquer

OPI Cuckoo For This Color– absolutely stellar.  A green shimmer that’s gorgeous in the light, with a blue base that makes it almost turquoise, but more cool green.

OPI Ski Till We Drop (whose beautiful luminosity is stolen by our rainy day photo) is a smoky warm blue cream.  Dark, with cool grey and an itty bit of green undertones.  A full blue that is so different from anything anyone’s done this season.

OPI The Color to Watch is actual an opal-y lavender color that is shimmery (not actually opalescent in finish) and very chic.

OPI Yodel Me On My Cell is a brighter blue than Ski Till We Drop.  I’d almost classify it as a “bright” color.  It’s shimmery, but a clearer blue, with less musky colors and a purer base.

All in all, we can’t even tell you how excited we are.  Contact us with any questions about expected delivery, but make sure and place an order today to reserve your polish!

Swatches, Part 3- More Zoya for Fall!

Day three of our Swatch week features Zoya’s Wonderful collection, their newest fall collection released alongside Wicked, and available at Beauty of a Site for purchase- even right now!

Both of the collections play with dark and light, offering one sparkly (Wicked) and one creme (Wonderful) collection for your enjoyment. Play with these bold shades!

Zoya Wonderful Collection Swatches Shawn is a bright myrtyle green, even brighter than our picture gives it credit. The color is even a little murky; more than just a simple green.
Cola is a very warm brown creme, more red than purple. It truly is the color of creamy Colas.  A beautiful color against any skin tone!
Kristi is a bright, classic, pure red, truly crimson.  Warm with orange undertones, this is the perfect pair-with-anything attention-getting red.
Burke, unfortunately, isn’t showing up in our picture as well as we’d hope.  It’s an almost red-berry shade, described by Zoya as a “sienna red” creme.
Stacy, (again, no justice given) is an almost purple / burgundy.  I sort of love the color.  Not bright enough to be berry, but definitely in the purple family, without being dark.  Pretty!
Kelly is so so so beautiful.  When applied, it’s almost a purple-y grey color.  With several coats, it’s steel blue nature shows through.  Absolutely beautiful.

I’ve included one of Zoya’s promotional pictures of the collection below to help offset some of our lighting issues, so that the true colors show through a little more. The collection is beautiful, and I highly suggest putting it on your have-to-have list. Better yet, order it today and get it even before your local beauty store. It’s gorgeous!
