OPI Coca Cola Collection Swatches, Review

Press sample

Below are my swatches and review of the OPI Coca Cola Collection, inspired by the happy fizz of - what else, the wonderful world of the iconic soft drink brand.  This collection welcomes the warmer weather and heralds the coming of summer, so the colors also reflect the warmth of the season.

OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today

OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today is a light peach creme.  This reminds me of the Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood nail lacquer in Sweet Daisy, but I kinda like Sorry I'm Fizzy Today a tad better as it's a brighter kind of peach.

OPI You're So Vain-illa









OPI You're So Vain-illa is a bone-beige kind of lacquer.  It looks clean on the nails and it is in your classic cream finish.  This is perfect as a work or interview color.  Looks very professional on the nails.

OPI Orange You Fantastic!

OPI Orange You Fantastic! is a gold and orange glitter in a light orange base.  Kinda reminds me of fall and halloween, so I think this is a bit of an oddball in this collection.  I do understand that this color pays homage to the orange soda, but it still looks kind of fall-ish to me.

OPI My Signature is "DC"

OPI My Signature is "DC" is a beautiful silver foil with a very shiny finish.  This reminds me of the OPI Gwen Stefani foil color in Push and Shove



OPI Get Cherried Away

OPI Get Cherried Away is a red-based purple cream.  Not a favorite because I've seen OPI do this color so many times.


OPI Green on the Runway

Now this is a thing of beauty.  OPI Green on the Runway is a breathtaking multichrome green lacquer.  It has gorgeous shifts of green, gold and brown.  Soooo pretty and perfect for summer.


OPI Today I Accomplished Zero

OPI Today I Accomplished Zero almost reminds me of Halloween.  It's a rose gold glitter-infused lacquer in a black base.  I think this is nice with a black base underneath.  Nice take on Coke Zero!


OPI A Grape Affair

OPI A Grape Affair is one of my favorites in this collection - a luscious blue-based purple cream.  I can see myself wearing this often, as I'm a sucker for purples.

Lastly, the star of the collection - OPI Coca Cola Red.  Who wouldn't fall in love with this beautiful, classic, timeless red?  This is going to be my staple pedicure color this summer, so as to showcase my piggies in flipflops or strappy heels.

All in all, I think some of the colors are mall fall-ish than summer, but the rest are beautiful shades that are worthy picks for this season.

What are your OPI Coca Cola faves?

Thanks for your review of this product. Can you tell me the steps you used, cleanse, tone, Brightenex and then did you use a moisturizer afterwards? I just started using Brigtenex, a couple days now and have been reading different application techniques - curious about yours. Thanks Adrienne
