Blast from the Past: OPI Summer for Shore
It's another Blast from the past and this week I'm taking you way back to OPI's limited edition Summer for Shore 03' collection.
In case you missed last weeks blast from the past, OPI's Mod about Bright, this collection is a mixture of my two favorite things - beaches and holographics! Yes, non DS!
If you're like me, I have no resistance when it comes to holographic nail polish. There's something particularly beautiful when the fine rainbow colored particles reflects off light to create a prismatic effect that has me swooning over every species.
By far, this has to be OPI's best collections of all time. And, we can only hope to see another awesome spread like this.
Let's get onto the swatches.
Blue Moon Lagoon, a pale shimmery powder blue holo.
Coral Reef, a deep orange coral holo. This is a three coater (ignore text on image above).
What's Dune, one of the faintest colors of the collection, a pearly silvery white holo.
Day at the Peach, a light icy peach holo.
Sand-erella is insanely gorgeous. A pale purple that applied fairly light and needed four coats to achieve bottle color.
Crim-Sun, a red hot sunset holo.
Let's start with the bad news, most of these colors are discontinued and hard to find. But you could still seek them out on Ebay if need be.
Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend!

I love 'em! I wish Sanderella would get re-released. I have Day at the Peach somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it for about four years. Not sure where it went.

They are all gorgeous holos. Any dupes to these? I love Day at the Peach.
