Hi there! Here I am with a new limited edition collection by OPI, namely Neo Pearl!
As its name indicates, this new collection is inspired by pearls and offers 12 new shades with pearlescent finish.
This is quite unusual for OPI, but in this collection the 12 shades are split into 6 shades available only in Infinite Shine formula and 6 other shades available exclussively in the classical OPI formula as well as in GelColor.
I got the 6 Infinite Shine colors and have swatches of them for you.
In terms of formula all the 6 polishes were similar. They are sheer. You can either rock a wash of color with only one coat or add 2 additional layers to get an opaque look. Swatches below are with 3 coats. You could also start with a white polish and then add a think layer of the Neo Pearl color.
Importantly, they are not streaky and you don’t see brush strokes.
Olive for Pearls! – a gunmetal green pearl with a brown/orange/pink shimmer. This one is really original and a statement color! It looks very metallic, more than what you see in pictures.
Two Baroque Pearls – an icy blue pearl with a blue shimer. This is a interesting version of a soft baby blue.
Love or Lust-er? – a purple pearl with pink shimmmer. This is the one with the strongest shimmer with Olive For Pearls. I really like it.
Glisten Carefully! – a lilac pearl with a pink shimmer. A very delicate and beautiful lilac. This is a great way to use a nude or neutral color but with a twist!
I’m a Natural – a peachy nude pearl with a purple shimmer. This one is probably my favorite. It’s such a beautiful and elegant color. I’ve already worn it a couple of times and can’t get enough it it!
You’re Full of Abalone – an ivory pearl with a blue and purple shimmer. I love white polishes but pure solid white can look a bit harsh. The shimmer and pearl finish in it makes it softer. I also really like it. Bonus, it’s not streaky at all!
OPI polishes can be purchased in professional nail salons, certains pharmacies, and beauty supplies.
