Fall Winter 08: OPI La Collection De France
Couture Couleur La De France fall/winter 08 collection features twelve rich, senous colors inspired by the effortless elegance of French fashion.
Despite the fact I'm so fashionably late posting my Fall swatches, the OPI France collection has some truely unique shades this year. Starting off with the most unique and my personal favorite, You Don't know Jacques. A deep brownish gray taupe creme that compliments most every skintone. Another great shade coming in second is Parlez-vous. Described as a lavendar purple with gray undertones.
What I passed on - most the Reds. There's only so much you can do with red and while most of the shades in the France collection were nice, they just didn't interest me.
Check out the swatches below.
Bastille My Heart - a medium cherry apple red with subtle pink shimmer. I would of preferred this to be a tad bit darker.
This image is a good color representation of Bastille my Heart.
We'll Always Have Paris - a dark vampy purple reddish creme. A great plum shade for fall.
You Don't Know Jacques was one of the many stand-outs in this collection and my favorite. Described as a Muddy Grey Taupe creme. It's different, unique and just a fab neutral color all around.
Lourve me Lourve me not - a violet base with blue and red shimmer.
Parlez-vous OPI is another one of the stand-out colors in the France collection. A lavender purple with muted gray creme.
Tickle my France-y is a nice neutral shade that's anything but sheer. This is the perfect anytime shade that you can leave on your nails for days and not have to worry about coordinating with your work wardrobe.
Eiffel for this color is a darkened plum with blue and pink shimmer that simply looked stunning on.
Eiffel for this Color
Yes.. I can-can a darkened red plum much like We'll have Paris' base color, but with added silver shimmers. I preferred this one over We'll have Paris because the silver sparkles gives a bit of kick.
I'll be adding a few more swatches this week.
