OPI – Washington DC collection

Finally!! This has been so long over due since I’ve had this collection in my possession for quite a while now.. I will not go into extreme detail about the formulas cuz they are all (well almost) GREAT! So yeay for that! Over all I really love this collection and since they are for sale right now(!!), I sugest you find your favorites and grab them so your nails are prepped for fall.. We have 15 shades to go through, the usual 12, plus 3 Special-Edition Kerry Washington shades, so let’s get into the swatches shall we?

IMG_3042OPI “Liv” In The Gray – A dark grey with a hint of blue to it? Well you would think som from this picture… In fact I would say that it is just grey, but a very nice grey, that I don’t previously own!

IMG_3043OPI CIA = Color is Awesome – This color IS awesome! Like a deep blue with some teal to it, kinda.. The picture actually looks true to color.

IMG_3044OPI By Popular Vote – Yeah, I like tis color.. A lot! No need to describe this one because it looks exactly like in the picture. Beautiful formula! Oh, that’s right, I wasn’t gonna talk about formula..

IMG_3045OPI Madam President – This is like a brighter version of “OPI By Popular vote” and I love it!

IMG_3046OPI Shh… It’s Top Secret! – This one reminds me of a lighter, more grayish/brown, “Lincoln Park After Dark”. It does come of a bit darker on camera than in real life but I feel like this is gonna be my go to for the darker colors this fall.

IMG_3047OPI Stay Off The Lawn!! – Absolutely amazing color! This is definitely one of my favorites from this collection. Pretty true to color but maybe a tad darker irl.

IMG_3052OPI Kerry Blossom – One of the special edition shades. This one dried dow a bit darker that when applied which was kinda weird but I didn’t mind! Lovely color but a bit streaky, although I only added two coats, meaning I could have gotten rid of the streak with three, so she is forgiven!

IMG_3053OPI Pale to the Chief – Not a fan of super nudes like this one, but seeing it had som pearlish  sheen to it (which I’m normally not a fan of either but it is sooo subtle you can barely see it) I kinda liked it! Actually I really like it! And it’s quite unique in my opinion.

IMG_3055OPI Never a Dulles Moment – This is more dusty than the picture allowed it to be. If you can imagine “One Chic Chick” (from the pastels collection) and “Need Sunglasses?” had a baby, this would be it! Well sort of… Struggled with application with this one so I sugest you use lots of polish on the brush when applying.

IMG_3056OPI Inside the ISABELLEtway – The other one of the special edition shades. Caramel shade that surprised me how much I really liked it.

IMG_3057OPI Squeaker of the House – Love the shade, hate the name. A bit more warm toned than in the picture though. Oh, and be aware that you will probably get this all over your cuticles upon removal… Just saying. It’s still worth it though!

IMG_3048OPI Suzi – The First Lady of Nails – Olive green that really caught my eye. I think I gonna be wearing this a lot for fall, just saying. And here’s another one that will stain your cuticles when removing it. But once again, worth it!

IMG_3049OPI Freedom of Peach – Meh, not to big of a fan with this one. Although my friend says these kinds of color make her feel newly rich, so maybe imma give it a go and that feeling will actually get me there!

IMG_3050OPI Yank My Doodle – This is one of the OPI formulas that I love the most, crelly with super intense pigmentation. Actually kinda dig the color as well.

IMG_3051OPI We The Female –  And last but definitely not least, at least not if you wanna talk formula cus this one was the best! Really like this color and as we know OPI does nothing better than redish shades and this is no exception.

So, over all I totally dig this collection. It’s a perfect mixture of color and not only really dark and dull ones but a few pops of color that are, well some at least, quite unique. At least to my collection. Lemme know if you have any questions!

Until next time!
