I'm such a (OPI) Swiss Miss

I was buying some gorge OPI colours for my very good friend Amy's birthday and I caught sight of these beauties.  The OPI Swiss Collection has some of the most lovely, wearable shades for Autumn/Winter and they just fell into my basket....honestly guv!

I picked out the Irre-Swiss-Ables mini collection that includes mini's of Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous (pewter), Yodel Me on My Cell (metallic tealy blue/green), Color So Hot It Berns (classic red) and a mini RapiDry topcoat. I just love these colours for winter time. And whilst I was the most excited for Yodel me on my Cell, I've fallen in love with Lucerne-tainly look marvelous as it looks so amazing in the flesh.. After watching the OPI show on QVC the other day, they said that you get 15 full manicures (x2 coats) from each mini bottle. That's a lot of lacquer for your lolly! 

William Tell Me about OPI is one of those fab, classy colours that you can wear with any outfit.  Kind of reminds me of Nails Inc Victoria or OPI Give Me Moor. Its a very deep plummy brown and in some lights it looks really dark. Such an elegant shade.  I used the flash so you can get a better idea of the colour. Can't wait to wear this one.

Cuckoo For this Colour is another belter. In some lights its teal and in others it has more of a emerald cast. Whatever colour it is, it's gorgeous.  I wear a lot of black, so this will work out just fine for me, although I can appreciate that it wouldn't be to everyone's taste.

Ok, so this is THE ONE that I have been lusting after since Hannah (aka Snowdrop85) added it to her collection. It's called Ski Teal We Drop and I just think this colour is divine.  Its such an usual shade of teal, which is bang on trend and I don't own a colour like it.  Its a cream finish and I simply cannot wait to get this on my nails. Its taking all my resolve not to take off Leighton Denny Viva La Diva (bright red) to take this for a spin.  I guess I'll wait until the weekend.

So what do you think of the OPI Swiss collection? Is there anything that has caught your eye, or anything from another brand that you want to recommend to me? 


  1. Ohh nice.. I just ordered *William Tell me about OPI* from a very reasonable ebay seller.
    I can't wait for it to arrive, as I need some autum colours :)

  2. That's where I got mine! Its lovely. Nicer than the swatches I saw online. Glad I gave it a chance. I think its probably going to end up as a favourite!

  3. I love OPI, my first foray into decent nail polish (or lacquers!) and never my last. These look great. Thanks for the post and pics. Jan

  4. I have Cuckoo for my Colour which I love! Holding off buying anymore as I am too excited for the Burlesque holiday collection!
    P.S. - I did it, I've ordered some Essie! I went for Sew Psyched and Chinchilly :)

  5. @ Jan: thinking of purchasing from this collection?? I love OPI ;oD

    @ Chicky Spouts: I know, sounds divine! So glad you have taken the plunge with Essie. Sew Psyched looks gorge. I have Chinchilly and I love it. Think you'd like Mink Muffs too. Let me know how you get on.
