Brazil Inspired Nail Polish

When I first saw the twelve colors for OPI’s Brazil Collection I was immediately drawn to Amazon…Amazoff and knew I had to make it mine. When I was ordering I decided I would also give Live Love and Carnaval a try too. Since they are from the same Brazil Inspired Nail Polish collection I decided to use them together — I love when color matching is made easy.

I experimented with two colors from OPI's Brazil inspired nail polish.

Amazon… Amazoff is a deep green blue that is a bit watery and sheer. It definitely needs two coats for good coverage. Maybe even a third, but I stopped at two because I find three of anything tends to chip quicker. I love the color but it is definitely more green than I expected it to be.

Love the green and would totally wear it alone but love it with the orange accent.

Live Love and Carnaval is a thick creme. I found it needed two coats because the first coat did not go on smoothly and streaked. Lovely bright orange-coral. Both nail polishes dried super fast before I even got around to the top coat.

Having fun with OPI's Brazil inspired nail polish collection.

I love this color combination. I am not sure if I would wear the orange by itself because it really is quite bright but with the green I think it is smashing. I would definitely wear the green all on it’s own though. It’s all in personal preference.

I really find it to be more green than blue.

Have you tried any colors from OPI’s Brazil line?

A Sleigh Ride in February

I bought OPI’s Sleigh Ride for Two before Christmas but just never had a chance to wear it. Our snowbanks are still a couple feet high so I feel perfectly legit in wearing this deep dark red with a fine shimmer. I actually quite love it.

My nails are ready for the slopes with Mariah's deep red nail polish by OPI.

It is a nice formula. There were a few bare spots with one coat but two coats made it totally opaque. This nail polish is from the Mariah Carey holiday collection (I think there were 12 colors) and is still available on Amazon, Nail Polish Canada.

A few days later I received Cuccio “Remix” in my Top Box order and tried it out as an accent nail. This is only one coat. I have not used this brand before — I wish they had sent a solid shade because you really don’t get a feel for a brand until you’ve tried regular polish. So far so good though.

Adding a little sparkle to the accent nail with Cuccio's remix glitter nail polish.

Do you have a favorite OPI red, or other brand red?
