opi brazil collection- amazon...amazoff & red hot rio


Happy Tuesday, everyone! Normally, that would be a Monday phrase, but I took yesterday off. I had a laze about, finished two books- The Birth House and Hater (so creepy!) and watched the snow fall. And then watched some more fall. And then a bit more. It's cold, dark and generally blech outside and it's not even February yet. One thing that does bring a bit of warmth and sunniness however is the upcoming OPI Brazil Collection for Spring/Summer 2014. I have two shades to share, so read on!


' Brazil by OPI brings the colors of tropical rainforests and warm sandy beaches to nails and toes for Spring/Summer 2014. This new collection features a palette ranging from bright hues of red, pink, coral, orange and yellow to earthy tones of taupe, sienna, mocha and jungle green. In addition to 12 nail lacquers, the Brazil launch includes a set of four limited edition Beach Sandies Liquid Sand™ mini neon nail lacquers in bold purple, pink, turquoise and yellow shades with a textured, matte finish.' 



AmazOn... AmazOff is a lush, jungle green that looks like a cream in the bottle, but is more like a cream-shimmer hybrid on the nail. The colour is deep yet vivid and much more unique looking on the nail than in the bottle. Formula was great- amazing pigmentation. Two coats.


Red Hot Rio is a vivid red, which OPI calls a ruby, but I see a bit more yellow in than what I'd call ruby. Regardless, this is an amazing red with a jelly-ish formula- look at that shine! The jelly-like formula means this is on the sheer side and needs a few coats to cover visible nail line- three coats shown. Oh, and if you're easily impressionable you're likely humming this. Right?

Overall, I am a fan of this collection! While this collection has all the typical bright hues you'd expect from a tropical themed collection, it also has gorgeous deeper earthy shades making for a nicely rounded collection. It will be available February 4th in both regular polish and GelColour formulations. What do you think of this collection? Any shades you'll be picking up?
