Swatches & review: OPI Nordic collection

Hi ladies.

This is super late, but it's better late than never, right? :) I have my picks of OPI's Nordic collection for you today. They're all crèmes and definitely right up my alley! To save from repeating myself, all the shades have a great formula and were opaque in two easy coats.


First up, I have the delightful My dogsled is hybrid. It's a beautiful shade and I can see myself grabbing for it often as Spring settles here in Australia.

Can't aFjord not to is a pretty orange. It's not too bright to be in your face, so for someone like me who usually hesitates with orange shades on my nails, I can see this being quite wearable.

Suzi has a Swede tooth is a surprise love for me. Not one to reach easily for pink on my nails, I found this one very wearable against my skin tone. Another one I'll be using often in the upcoming warmer months!

Do you have this color in Stockholm is pretty different to the last three shades. This one is wham-pow in your face in comparison! Not neon bright, but definitely very saturated and and amazingly rich in colour. Being a purple lover, this is of course another one which will be given a fair bit of attention amongst my stash.

I know it's been a while, but have you picked up any of the shades from this collection? What are you thoughts on these four nail polishes?

Thanks for reading.

Blue and gold skittle

Hello hello~ Another mani from awhile back, so I'll try my best to recall the nail polishes :P I believe the base is OPI Road house blues, the gold is Ulta3 Gold rush fever and the glitter OPI I reached my gold.

It was something I put together whilst lacking inspiration - plus, I haven't stamped in awhile :) Still waiting to get my mojo back!

Thanks for reading.

Rainbow watermarble

Hi ladies :) I felt like I hadn't watermarbled in the longest time (meaning over a year!) and after seeing a whole bunch of beautiful watermarbled nails on instagram, I was inspired to create my own. These were done way back in July so I don't really remember the polishes used, except for the one I'm holding on to...oops! The orange is definitely OPI Call me Gwen-ever. Oh, and the holographic sparkle is from Glitter Gal Galaxy Holo Top Coat.

The marbling does look a bit random, so I'm hoping that with some more practice, I can get some uniform designs coming up :)

Orly High on Hope

Hello hello :) I must have shown Orly High on hope several times on the blog by now, but I never tire of wearing this shade - it's that gorgeous ♥ The beautiful shimmer gives the deep blue such an interesting finish that I find myself constantly staring at my nails throughout the day.

Picture Polish Blog Fest 2014!

Hello everyone :) I have the distinct pleasure and honour to be a part of Australian company Picture Polish's annual Blog Fest - a day where nail bloggers post about the beautiful Picture Polish nail polishes. This year, the event has  expanded to the instagram platform as well, so you may be seeing a number of photos which are dedicated towards this today!


The blog fest post is split into two parts - Part 1 will feature a Picture Polish shade and Part 2 will reveal a nail art creation using two nail polishes and nail vinyls.

Part 1:

Picture Polish Scarlett is a gorgeous red holographic nail polish. It flowed easily onto my nails and was opaque in two coats. There's really nothing more to say about this besides to run and get yourself your own Scarlett! Such a beautiful red ♥

Part 2:

Vegas and Electric blue were the stars of this chevron nail art look.

On my ring and middle nails, I sponged on the two shades. Once the base was dry, I took some mini chevron nail vinyls and stuck them on top, before applying black and white onto each nail respectively and then peeling off the vinyls. For my pinky and index nails, I reversed the look, sponging on black and white as the base before applying Vegas and Electric blue onto each respective nail.

I actually love the way my ring finger turned out and will be making a full manicure with this in the future!

Picture Polish will be retailing a special exclusive 4 pack ‘Nail Vinyls’ containing ‘Chevrons, Mini Chevrons, Straight & Right Angles that will be used by all participants this year! Check out more information about the vinyls here:
