You’ve seen Mariah in 2013, now OPI is giving you Gwen.. ahem.. MORE Gwen (see previous collection here) for Holiday 2014! These shades are gorgeous, you guys! Keep the Gwen comin’! The OPI Gwen Stefani Nail Polish Collection has 18 hues complete with festive names. Don’t tell me there’s no nail-spiration for you this year!
Below all nail polishes are swatched using Cult Nails Get it On Base Coat and China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat. All nail polishes were swatched using 2 coats unless noted. The photos are taken indoors under daylight lamps without a flash.
What’s Your Point-settia? is a gorgeous, shiny red cream.
Unfrost My Heart is a shining, silver metallic.
Sleigh Parking Only is a deep eggplant purple cream.
Rollin’ in Cashmere is a bright yellow gold frost.
Red Fingers & Mistletoes is a burgundy red with flashes of gold shimmer throughout.
Love is Hot and Coal has a darkened taupe base with frosty shimmers throughout.
Kiss Me – OR ELF! is a magenta shimmer.
Just Be-Claus is a darkened maroon cream.
In a Holidaze is a brick red jelly.
I Carol About You has a grape base with very subtle shimmer throughout (which was not picked up in the photos *sad*).
First Class Desires has a blackened eggplant base with golden and copper sparkle.
Fashion A Bow is a bright red jelly. This was 3 coats as the polish was thin/sheer, but it did paint on nicely.
Cinnamon Sweet is a mid-tone red cream.
Christmas Gone Plaid is an evergreen cream.
Comet in the Sky has a clear base with different sized hex glitters in black and flashes of iridescent (making them appear gold, blue, green, purple, etc). One coat shown over Christmas Gone Plaid.
I’ll Tinsel You In has a clear base with white bar glitter, white square glitter and small black glitters. One coat shown over Fashion A Bow.
Snow Globetrotter has a clear base with white and iridescent glitter. Like a sister to Comet in the Sky! One coat shown over Sleigh Parking Only.
So Elegant has a clear base with silver hex glitters and smaller black glitters. One coat shown over Cinnamon Sweet.
What was especially nice about the glitters was that they weren’t hard to work with or place on the nail, which is always a welcome feat when it comes to those types of toppers. My favorites from this collection are Red Fingers & Mistletoes, First Class Desires, Fashion a Bow, Comet in the Sky and Snow Globetrotter. I always feel so predictable when I tell you guys my faves lol
