I don’t have any super lemmings any more (that I can think of) but I do have a few OPIs on a wishlist that I hope to pick up at some point or think would be nice to have in my collection. Due to a rather expensive holiday that I have yet to pay for I am kind of on a no buy (not counting the two glitters I bought the other day) so this is a fun way to day-dream and also have a note for when I CAN shop for polishes again.
While I am thinking about OPI essentials I should probably have also put OPI Natural Nails Basecoat on this list – it is my favourite basecoat of all time and I have been out of it for far too long.
Technically this would be a repurchase and one of my first OPI repurchases. This is my favourite white – the prowide brush and a formula that gets better over time make this a must have for me. I use it whenever I need a white base for nail art and it never lets the team down. I have never actually worn a pure white manicure but if I did I think this would be the white for me – it is clean and forgiving. I wouldn’t mind trying Angel With a Lead Foot or My Boyfriend Scales Walls for an off white option some time though.
Pirouette My Whistle from the New York Ballet Collection is one of the few cult classic OPI glitters. So dainty and delicate I have never seen a bad combination with this polish. I have seen Pirouette… going on the discount sites a few times but never gotten around to picking it up. I think this would be gorgeous for winter time manicures to create the look of falling snow or just for adding a little je ne sais quoi to any beautiful OPI creme polish.
To Beagle or Not To Be from last years halloween collection this glitter is just all kinds of fun – I was lucky to get the set of minis for my birthday last year and have been hoarding them ever since. When I horde polish I do wear it but only very occasionally, especially the tiny OPI minis. I should have bought a full size of this last year and feeling kind of sad now that it’s unlikely I will ever have a full size 0f this matte glitter combo.
That’s Hula-rious such a delicate mint green, this comes from the 2015 spring collection inspired by Hawaii. This collection is one of those that some days as I scroll through the swatches I want almost all of them and other days I just think “meh”. I do think this polish would live quite happily along side two of my favourite green polishes of all time Mermaid’s Tears and Stranger Tides (both from the 2011 Stranger Tides collection). I don’t think I have a true green tone mint in my stash all of them lean much more blue. I have seen swatches of this mattified and they totally have me drooling.
Also, have you seen the Fall Venice collection due out at the end of August? I am loving all of the neutral shades – I agree this doesn’t feel like an Autumn/Winter collection HOWEVER it is important to note that 12 of these shades are going straight into the permanent collection and they fill in a lot of gaps. You can see swatches and a live swatch vlog here, along with more details on these new shades. I actually don’t like any of the limited edition colours (from the previews I have seen) which is good because I hate scrambling to get hold of colours – especially since everyone has discovered the websites I use! ANYWAY, what is on your wishlist (OPI or otherwise)? Have a great weekend!
