It's a winter wonderland outside today! The snow just keeps coming down! My Dad's still trying to dig us out.
Anyway, after seeing all of the press releases for the new OPI Gwen Stefani Collection, I stopped over at Ulta yesterday to pick up a couple of polishes from the collection. My two picks of the collection were: Hey Baby and Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
On to the swatches:
Hey Baby is a lovely medium pink with a glossy finish. This was described by OPI as one of the crème glosses of the collection. The formula was nice and I used 3 coats for the pictures below. I probably could have gotten away with 2, but I wanted to add a 3rd coat in order to smooth it out a little.
Although it's not the most original pink in the world, I think it's a great pink to have because you can wear it for many occasions since it's not too bright of a pink. The top picture shows Hey Baby in more of a shaded setting, while the picture below is in direct light.
My second pick of the collection was Love.Angel.Music.Baby. This polish is definitely a beauty! It's a glittery gold polish that dries with a satin finish. I used 2 coats for the pictures below. It's formula is WONDERFUL and has great consistency. It also dried really fast!
Here's Love.Angel.Music.Baby. with a topcoat. It looks dazzling! :)
Love.Angel.Music.Baby. must be one of the most popular polishes of the collection because when I went to Ulta, out of the big display and the rack display of the collection there were only 2 of these gold polishes left (well, down to one after I walked away with one of them)! There were quite a few of the other ones left, though.
The other polishes in this collection include: Over & Over A-Gwen (a red crème gloss), In True Stefani Fashion (a silver glitter), Push and Shove (a silvery chrome), 4 In The Morning (a black satin), and I Sing In Color (a very dark red crème gloss).
By the way, if you shop at Ulta, don't forget that there is always a coupon you can print out from online. I only found this out after I looked at their website to sign up for their rewards card. So if you need a coupon, feel free to go to their website here or print off the coupon good through 1/5/14-1/25/14 here.
So what do you think of my picks from this collection? Are you liking this new OPI collaboration collection?
Have a great rest of the day! And if you're near anyplace where it's going to be sub-zero temperatures the next few days like it's going to be in Chicago, stay warm and safe!
