OPI San Francisco collection (click to enlarge)
This entry is Part 2 of the OPI San Francisco collection review. In Part 1 of the OPI Fall/Winter 2013 San Francisco Swatches, Review, I talked about the shimmers and duochromes in this collection. In this entry, we focus on the creams. Sometimes I like the simplicity, richness and smooth, satiny finish of fall nail polish creams. I like how simple they are, but the boldness of the colors really herald the coming of fall.
Here are my swatches and thoughts on the OPI San Francisco Collection part 2 (the creams):
OPI Lost on Lombard
OPI Lost on Lombard is a deep red cream. It's not a fire engine red, but more of a garnet red. I love how pretty this looks, and the shade is indeed very festive - perfect for the holidays!
OPI First Date at the Golden Gate
OPI First Date at the Golden Gate does remind me of the Golden Gate's color - a sort of rusty red orange. This is described by OPI as a shimmery ruby, but it's not too shimmery to my eyes. This is a really nice shade that is more of a jelly in finish.
OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay
OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay is a pretty mid-tone blue cream. It is described as a navy blue by OPI. I love that it is blue but the shade is not too light that it looks springy or summery.
OPI Incognito in Sausalito
OPI Incognito in Sausalito is such a vampy, rich blue-black. This is great for the fall and the perfect edgy color.
OPI In The Cable Carpool Lane
OPI In The Cable Carpool Lane looks jelly to me, and is a wine shade. I am not too much of a fan because I already have way too many wine-colored nail polishes.
OPI A-Piers to be Tan
OPI A-Piers to be Tan is a milk chocolatey tan. Not a fan when worn by itself, but I am thinking this would be great layered with different-colored glitter or with nail stamp art.
All in all, I am liking the shimmers better than the creams in this collection, but my favorites from the creams are First Date at the Golden Gate, Keeping Suzy at Bay, and Incognito in Sausalito.
