I don't have the entire collection..... I purchased these myself so I had to think long and hard about which ones I really wanted. I decided to skip out on the red, the coral-y red, the darker orange, and the purple-y shimmer. (like how technical I am?) The ones I chose are truly unique in my collection, plus I love them so much. Even more now that I've worn them! They are all cremes....and apply like a DREAM. What we've come to know and expect from OPI.
I also wanted to include some quick comparisons in these posts. I don't have a ginormous amount of polish, but I do sorta have a lot of OPI, so I started there. I just love seeing and reading comparisons others do so I really wanted to do some myself in my own way. By having them with the swatches you can keep your brain on the right color track.

Pink comparisons: OPI Shorts Story is the closest I came. Kind of surprising given the amount of pinks I have :) These looked much closer in the bottle.
This is Where did Suzi's Man-go? This collection has some seriously hilarious names. This one fits the bill. NEWSFLASH: I barely have any orange polishes, so not many to compare to. I almost didn't get this but I'm so glad I did. So creamy and peachy. Errrrr, mango-y.

Comparisons: The darkest is from the mini OPI Halloween 2013 set, called The Drummer is Hot. Next to that is Nicole by OPI Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary.
Next is I Just Can't Cope-Acabana. Hilarious and perfect name. So Beautiful .
This is my new go-to yellow!!

I don't have many yellows either so this was a must. I only compared it with a few, the rest were way too bright. I don't own OPI Need Sunglasses so no comparison there :( First is Revlon Colorstay in Buttercup, then Sally Hanson X-Treme Wear in Mellow Yellow. Oooooooo that one comes close. But loses big time on formula.

(Updated to add: I had no staining on my nails when I removed this. I wore it for a full 2 days. I did use a ridge-filling basecoat, and a heavy coat a that. I was very careful to do straight strokes down my finger with the cotton ball and not move it all around, it that makes sense. I did get a little coloring on the edges of my fingernail where my skin is a little dry, but it came out after washing my hands really good with soap!)
Here's a shocker: I have a ton of blues, teals, blue-greens, and green-blues. Like, a ton. BUT I was really surprised I didn't have more of a match for this. I used: OPI Fly, Essie Naughty Nautical, and Essie Go Overboard. I don't own OPI Ski Teal We Drop (boo!) but it seems to be very close to Go Overboard.
p.s...... this comparison hand just makes me happy :)
Here's a linear watermarble I did with my 4 colors over a white base. I'm still trying to practice my watermarble skills and this is my first time doing it this way (as opposed to floral). I like it!
This is just me testing my self on my ability to hold the bottle in a consistent way every time. Working on it! :)
