I recently had the privilege of reviewing some of the hottest gel colors from OPI’s latest collection for Spring Summer 2014- Brazil. The color palette is highly diverse in this collection, meaning every customer will be satisfied with one of the gorgeous shades offered.
I am also very happy to state that a lot of the colors in this collection happened to be what I love to call “1 Coat Wonders”. Usually this is a term I render solely to conventional nail polish, but in this instance, many of the hues in this collection I had complete coverage and opacity with a single coat. This cuts manicure time in half, allows you to take on more customers, and saves tons of product; its a win win situation.
The shades I reviewed include:
Don’t Boss Nova me Around: a creamy opaque nude.
OPI Scores A Goal!: a deep rich burgundy eggplant. A 1 Coat Wonder!
I Sao Paulo Over There: a warm mocha brown with purple undertones. A 1 Coat Wonder!
Red Hot Rio: a bright rich ruby red.
Next Stop… The Bikini Zone: a shimmering metallic purple silver
Kiss Me I’m Brazilian: a hot summery pink.
Taupe-less Beach: a greige (gray/beige) with lavender undertones. A 1 Coat Wonder!
AmazON…AmazOFF: a deep dark jungle green. My personal favorite in this colleciton. A 1 Coat Wonder!
(All shades swatched here were 2 coats, cured each for 30 seconds in an LED lamp.)
I found the formula on all of the shades to be quite excellent, with much consistency. I could not recommend this collection enough. Many of the shades, particularly the earth neutral tones, could work well year round on majority of your clients. Each gel color retails for $14.95.
