OPI Brazil Collection | Copacababies!

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…

  1. This is a gorgeous collection! I really love all the colors especially the iridescent nude!

    1. It is such a pretty collection, I think my favourite might be the green for now I'm loving all sorts of green tones for my nails :)

  2. I love this collection too... I was going to pick up only one nail polish from this collection but I ended up with a bit more than that ;)
    Thought about showing them on my blog but since you have already dedicated a post to this I do not want to do the same thing. Don´t want you to think that Im stealing ideas ;)
    I picked up; Toucan Do It If You Try, OPI Scores A Goal, Where Did Suzi´s Man-go? and I Just Can´t Cope-acabana :)

  3. Ooh nice collection. I think AmazON...AmazOFF (smart name) looks like a really gorgeous colour for Winter...but then again, I've always loved darker shades for the colder months anyway. ;)

  4. When I first saw the swatches for this range I saw four Taupe, grey, mauve shades and thought "gradient manicure!!" for one on each nail. It's still very tempting...
