OPI New Orleans Collection Swatches

*Press Sample.

Hi there everyone! Today I have the OPI New Orleans Collection to share with you.

This is a collection of 12 polishes which is currently available worldwide. 
Here is a list of the 12 colours.

Lets check them out shall we???

Let me Bayou a Drink- Is a very pale pink, almost white polish with a shimmer. I needed 3 thin coats for opacity, I did try 2 but I found this polish a little streaky.

Humidi-Tea-  Is a neutral coloured polish that is slightly pink and has a shimmer to it. This was my least favourite polish of the collection. It went on a little streaky but I only needed 2 coats.

Suzi Nails New Orleans-  Is your typical pink creme. This went on a dream in 2 coats but to be fair it did remind me of OPI Pink Friday a little.

I Manicure for Beads- Is a bright purple with a almost neon look to it. Perfect formula and just 2 coats for opacity. This collection really does have some lovely cremes!

Spare me a French Quarter?- This is a pretty pink creme, the depth is great and I love that's it was almost opaque in one coat. An added bonus I don't have a OPI quite the same colour as this so a great addition to my collection.

She's a Bad Muffuletta!- Is a bright coral/red creme. This reminded me of a few other reds in my collection so I will have to do some comparisons.

Got Myself into Jam-balaya- Is a peachy pink creme. Again a great creme in just 2 coats.

Crawfishin' for a Compliment- Is a orange pastel colour, it is like a diluted orange. I like this colour a lot I have an Orly that is similar to this so i'm happy to have a back up that is close.

Take a Right on Bourbon- Is a champagne coloured metallic polish. I found it went on quite streaky and even dried with brush marks. I only needed 2 coats for opacity.

I'm Soooo Swamped!- OMG! GREEN!! I love me a green polish and this did not disappoint! I only needed 2 thin coats. I love when OPI does green and blue colours because OPI dont do these colours often but when they do I love every one!!!

Rich Girls and Po-Boys - Is a bright blue creme. I thought it may be the same as the OPI my pal joey, but it is lighter that that colour. Opacity in 2 coats.

Show us Your Tips!- Is a lilac shimmer polish which has a multi coloured shimmer effect depending on what light you see it in. I needed 3 thin coats for good opacity. Two thick coats I found streaked so the thinner coats were a better idea.

The whole collection is available now at Myer for retail $19.95 and wholesale for Nail Techs at International Beauty Supply for $10.95

Until next time.....
