OPI Summer 09: Sunbelievable Collection

OPi Summer Sunbelieveable collection

Happy Monday! I have one last Summer collection to bring ya'll before I get into the Fall goodies.

OPI's Sunbeleiveable collection is a small release of four summertastic colors ranging from coral, yellow, pink and blue.

The application: I found most colors to be semi sheer with a jelly consistency. You'll need a minimum of three coats or more. My swatches were done with three, with the exception of one. Let's get down to business, shall we?

Check out the swatches. 

OPI I'm his coral friend nail polish

OPI Summer 09 Nail collection

I'm his Coral Friend is a semi sheer coral jelly that's similar to her sister, Modern Girl.

OPI Sea I told you nail polish 

OPI Summer 09 collection

Sea I told You, a gorgeous aquamarine with blue micro-glitter that's really stunning. A little different than Sephora's Skinny Jeans, which is a bit more teal. Must have for any blue lover!

OPI If the Fuchsia Fits nail polish

 OPI Sunbelievable collection

If the Fushcia Fits, your standard hot pink shimmer. Not so much unique, but certainly pretty!

OPI Banana Bandanna nail polish

OPI Summer 09 Collection

 I love Banana Bandanna! The application may be somewhat streaky, but definitely worth the hassle of this soft, buttercup color. So pretty!

OPI's Sunbelieveable collection is now available at Professional Salons and E-tailers. Hope you have an awesome day!

I love Banana Bandana too! I wasn't sure about it on my fingers so I did a pedi on my toes with bright blue and hot pink polka dots :) I am going to do that on my fingers before end of summer.

Wow. I have three out of the four colors--all but Banana Bandanna. I'm still not entirely sold on that one because I don't normally like polishes that have to use five or more coats on the natural nail. But I do love the other three on you.

I love the blue! Very foil like. How do you get your nails so perfectly square? They really look so nice.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
