OPI Washington DC Collection for Fall/Winter 2016


Hey Dolls!

I have the new OPI Washington DC Collection to share with you today!  OPI teamed with actress Kerry Washington for this fifteen-piece polish Fall/Winter 2016 collection. While I'm not ready to Fall to start yet, I am drooling over these classy shades and can't wait to start wearing them.

First up is Stay Of the Lawn!!  It is described as a 'deep, lush green'.  This formula is perfection, super pigmented and easy to work with.  A one coater!

Suzi - The First Lady of Nails is a chic, olive green.  The formula is a little watery on this one, but still easy to work with.  Two coats was all I needed.

Never a Dulles Moment is a bright, curry yellow.  The formula was more watery than I expected, so I had a little pooling at my cuticles.  Just be careful and do three thin coats.

Pale to the Chief is a pale-tan, nude with the slightest white shimmer running throughout.  It has a great formula, two easy-peasy coats.

Yank My Doodle is a gorgeous copper cream.  You'll need three coats to get this one fully opaque, as it has a watery formula.

Freedom of Peach is a beautiful creamy peach.  The formula is excellent on this one, two smooth coats.

Squeaker of the House is a delicious chocolate brown and it's my fave of the collection!  Formula is perfection, two easy coats.

Shh...It's Top Secret! is a deep brown that looks almost black.  I love this classy shade!  It is so pigmented that if you are careful, you can get away with just one coat.

Madam President is a bright pink-leaning red cream.  It's very pigmented, you'll just need two coats.

OPI by Popular Vote is described as a 'cool apple red'.  Formula is fantastic, I used two coats to get the full richness of this color.

We the Female is a deep garnet red cream.  Again, the formula is great, two easy coats.

CIA - Color is Awesome is a stunning, dusty teal. You'll want to make sure you double up on your basecoat with this one and watch your cuticles, as it will stain.  Formula is great, two smooth coats.

The next three polishes are limited edition shades.

Kerry Blossom is a rich plum with a crelly formula.  I used two coats for this, but should have done a third as it is a little sparse in some areas.

"Liv" in the Gray is an edgy, deep gray cream.  Perfect formula, you'll only need one coat!

Inside the ISABELLEtway is the loveliest caramel cream.  Formula is excellent, two easy coats.

So does the OPI Washington DC collection have you longing for sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice lattes?  I need a bit more of Summer yet, but I always get excited for the changing seasons.

The OPI Washington DC collection will be available soon and retails for $12.50 CND ($10.00 USD) in salons and select retail stores.

Have a great day loves!

  1. Some nice creme polishes for fall and winter!

  2. I can't believe the fall collections are rolling out already. It seems like we should be trying to hold onto the summer a little longer. This collection is gorgeous though and your swatches are perfect as always. I don't knew how OPI keep releasing such amazing colours.

  5. Hi, what a great swatches! May I ask you how you make such a smooth lines around your cuticles? What's your trick?

    1. Hi Brenda! I use a small concealer brush dipped in acetone to clean up around my cuticle line. Works like a dream!

  7. where can i buy them? and what are the prices?

    1. Hi there, A lot of salons will sell OPI and then depending on where abouts you live, select retailers will also sell them. I'm sure there are lots of places you can buy them online as well, Nail Polish Canada etc. At the end of my post I mention the prices and where they can be purchased :)
