I’m currently sitting on my couch with the heater blaring and Charlie by my side, watching the Croatia v Greece World Cup match on a cold Melbourne morning. I’m yet to see a full soccer match in the tournament and suffice to say I’m not a soccer fanatic, but the Brazil vibes that the contest is sending out is definitely enjoyable for me. My Facebook feed is currently full of holiday snaps of almost everyone I know, but for me the only holiday I have right now is on my fingernails. OPI Brazil collection, the Copacababies*!
Mini packs from OPI are always a great thing, and give a delicious taste of the stars of a polish collection which can often spur on a full size bottle purchase somewhere down the line. I popped all 4 of these Brazilian inspired shades on my digits to share with you.
Next Stop…The Bikini Zone
“This amethyst-toned pewter suits me just fine.”
This is probably the shade in this pack that I’m least likely to wear, but I can definitely see it looking amazing over a deeper purple base. It’s quite sheer and this coverage took 3 thin coats but it still wasn’t opaque when you looked at it on certain angles. I think any solid crème base under this would really bring out the gorgeous shimmery lilac tones, that is definitely how I’ll be wearing it next time.
Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?
“He went to fetch her this delicious mango smoothie.”
This is probably as pale as I can go with an orange nail polish, and this was another winner in Mister Bovary’s book too. I love wearing orange on my nails but have been in such a metallic state of mind lately that I’ve neglected my babies! This would also be a great colour for nail art!
Kiss Me I’m Brazilian
“Plant this warm luscious pink on me!”I actually don’t have too many Barbie pinks like this in my collection and I can see this sort of shade being a big drawcard for this mini-pack! It applied quite thickly but was easy enough to apply overall.
“I’m making the switch to this deep jungle green.”
Now this is what I’m talking about – beware of the deep green though, you are definitely going to need a base coat with this shade! This was Mister Bovary’s favourite on me, and I think that with a third coat this will be a ‘next-level’ sort of colour for me. (Did I forget the second coat on my pointer finger? It’s highly likely, haha)
I am really impressed that OPI went for bright and cheerful shades in this collection, and the inclusion of 3 crème shades is a welcome one in my opinion. Now all I need is a trip overseas to complete this tropical vibe…
