Very clever, OPI. Very clever.
The part of me that lives to over-think the symbolic significance of everything loves the juxtaposition of gritty sand, neutrals and bright pigments in the OPI Brazil collection.
On one end, there are the sandy-colored neutral polishes in the overarching 12-piece OPI Brazil collection, which all have a smooth, creamy finish.
On the other, there are the four vivacious mini polishes here in the accompanying Brazil Beach Sandies Kit ($12.95), all of which have OPI’s pebbled, textured Liquid Sand finish in bright, eye-catching shades, also known as psychedelic party sand for your paws.
Even if you aren’t a big fan of textured polishes, I think these vivid shades are still worth a try if you like playful, cheerful colors. They’re seriously smile-inducing, and the names — You’re So Flippy Floppy, What’s a Little Rain Forest, Samba-dy Loves Purple and I’m Brazil Nuts Over You — are catchy, too.
In each of the swatches below, I’m wearing two coats…
Also, here’s something else you may like. You know how some mini nail polish bottles have jacked-up brushes?
Not these. These brushes here are classic OPI, with bristles that fan out perfectly across the nail. With these, I can easily freehand sharp, crisp edges.
This cute little set surfed onto OPI counters earlier this month, so if you’d like to check it out, you can find it now for $12.95 at professional salons, Pure Beauty stores and online.
