OPI Spring Summer 09: South Beach Collection
This Spring and Summer, OPI dives into the South Beach with splashes of color. Introducing 12 new shades this season ranging from your pinks, coral, and purples to bronze and nudes.
Today I'm beginning with my six favorite shades from the South Beach collection. Overall, OPI played this collection on the safe side. We're seeing your typical pink and red corals that's pretty, but not entirely unique. Along with a few suprises such as a Done out in Deco and Bronzed to Perfection.
Most the colors applied smooth like butta with no visible problems. All my swtaches were done with mostly two or three coats - just to even out everything.
Check out all the swatches.
Feelin' Hot Hot Hot is the shade you've probably seen in the promo images or in your magazines. Described as a bright hot pink with coralish undertones that's more brightened than pictured in my swatches above.
Note: Model in promo image above is wearing Feelin' Hot-Hot-Hot.
Bronzed to Perfection is different and the most unique out of the bunch. Described as a bronzey orange with chunky gold and red shimmer.
It's really hard getting used to this color because I don't own anything like it. Perhaps, maybe in the summer this will look a little better.
Done out in Deco is just stunning and my favorite by far. Described as a pastel lilac purple that certainly compliments warmer skin tones.
Miami Beet is a deep berry purple creme that's much darker than pictured above.
OPI on Collins Avenue is just your standard reddish coral creme. Not so much unique, but looks very pretty on your nails or toes.
Overexposed in South Beach is a pretty purple with purple and pink shimmer.
The South Beach collection is now available at Salons or online at Transdesign.
What's your guys favorites?

I quite like the look of OPI on Collins Avenue - I don't own anything like it. I am very fair skinned with blue undertones and am thinking that I might be able to pull off a reddish coral. And from your pics I really like Overexposed in South Beach. Thanx again for great swatches!

Bronzed to perfection, Overexposed, & Miami Beet are my choices. I'm really into the shimmer thing.
