OPI Brazil Collection . . . My Picks

As I mentioned in a previous post, a bought a few of OPI's Brazil collection for Spring/Summer 2014.  It seems this is the spring of creme polishes.  Both China Glaze and OPI featured them heavily and I'm loving it!

First up is I Just Can't Cope-acabana.  Yellow!  I love yellow and I don't have enough in my collection.  This one is a bright pastel yellow creme.  I was pleasantly surprised by the application.  It wasn't completely horrendous like most yellows.  The first coat was streaky, but things evened out nicely.

This is 3 coats.  Could have been 2 if I was more careful.

Kiss Me I'm Brazilian is a Barbie pink creme.  Not super unique, but I don't have very many pinks in my collection (compared to other colors), so I picked it up.  No complaints about application.

This is 2 coats.

Amazon...Amazoff.  Typical corny OPI name.  This one is a teal that leans a bit more green.  It has a bluish pearl shimmer running through that you can see if you stare long and hard enough.  It's barely noticeable.  I'm not even sure why its there.  This one had a nice application, but it stained the crap out of my nails.

This is 2 coats.

Live.Love.Carnival.  I have to pour out a little acetone for my bottle because it broke not too long after I swatched it.  My camera had a hard time capturing this and freaked out, but it's a bright coral creme.  Its  not my usual choice in colors, but I really like it.  It did streak a little on the first coat, but it evened out nicely.

This is 2 coats.

Don't Bossa Nova Me Around is a slightly pink nude.  Its kind of like the pinker version of My Vampire is Buff which means I love this!  It had a nice application.  Better than what I remember My Vampire is Buff being like.

This is 2 coats.

And finally we have Where Did Suzi's Man-go?  They just can't resist putting Suzi's name in every collection can they?  Name aside, this is my favorite of all the ones I picked up.  I just can't resist these kinds of oranges.  It's a bright pastel orange.  It did streak a little, but otherwise had a nice application.

This is 2 coats.

Overall, I loved the polishes I bought from this collection.  Which ones do you plan on getting?


  1. They're all awesome, I can't decide which ones I should get...all I guess! :D

    And I'm really happy to see yellow from OPI and China Glaze, it's so hard to get interesting yellows!

  2. Fabulous swatches!!!!

    I keep looking at this collection! I already have 5 of the collection in Gelcolor but I may supplement those with a few regular polishes (thinking I'll double up on Bossa Nova and have both formulas).
