OPI Washington DC A/W 2016 - Swatches and Review

11:26

You guys are in for a treat today! Or at least if you're like me and love fall colors and creme polishes...
 
This is the OPI Washington DC Collection!
 
OPI Kerry Washington DC AW 2016
 
OPI has teamed up with Kerry Washington to create this collection and the colors are inspired by the great fashion houses. It contains 15 (!!) gorgeous creme polishes and all of the colors are perfect for autumn and winter. Three of them are limited edition.
 
I will not go on ranting about the formulas for each color, because I will just be writing the same thing over and over. The formulas are... P-E-R-F-E-C-T. If you have watched my video for this years Soft Shades Collection, you know I had a bit of issues with the formula being a little bit on the runny side. You will not have that problem with this collection! All of the colors also have great coverage as well (and a lot of them are near one coaters). The only one that you miiight want to paint a third layer to is "Pale to the Chief".
 
Oh well, enough babbling! Ready for some swatches?

First up is "Shh... It's Top Secret!". A dark brown, nearly black shade. It reminds me a bit of "You don't know Jacques" but I haven't had time to do any dupe swatches yet so they might just be similar in my head. Although Jacques is supposed to be one of Kerry's favorite OPI colors, so maybe I'm not far from the truth?

"Squeaker of the House" is up next. This is a cool, brown shade and it kind of makes me think of the browns of the Nordic Collection but cooler.

"Never a Dulles Moment" is a warm, creamy yellow. I'm usually not a fan of wearing yellow on my nails for several day but there is something about this shade of yellow that really feels trendy and I do feel pretty wearing it!

One of my favorites - "Freedom of Peach". It's a light copper shade. Even though it's has peach in it's name, I don't really get the peachy vibe. Maybe it's an autumn peach? Anyhow, love love love this color!

"Pale to the Chief" is like I mentioned earlier the only shade that I had a tiny issue with the coverage. I have two coats on the picture but in some lights you might see a peek of my tips. This is also the only shade with a little bit of shimmer in it, but honestly it's more visible in the bottle than painted on the nail. I do feel like I've seen similar shades before like "Be there in a Prosecco" and "My vampire is Buff".

Next up is one of the limited edition shades called "Kerry Blossom". It's the only purple in this collection and I would call it a deep, dark grape-ish purple.

"Inside the Isabelletway" is the second limited edition shade and it's a yummy, brown caramel. I would say the closest thing to I dupe to this (that I own) is "Going my way or Norway?" from the Nordic Collection.

The darker coppar shade is called "Yank my Doodle". This is also one of my favorites! I think it's so flattering and I predict I will be wearing this a lot this coming fall.

Let's go on to one of the brighter shades of the collection - "Madam President". This shade is perfect. I don't know what else to say. Just look at it. No words needed.

The same for this shade... Perfection in a bottle! I would say that "OPI by Popular Vote" is a bit more raspberry than the above and a bit darker. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

"Stay Off the Lawn!!" is, I guess, supposed to be a grass-like color but I don't really see grass when I look at it. Beautiful green however with maybe a touch of blue or petrol?

I kind of feel like this is a more grass-like color but this shade is called "Suzi - The First Lady of Nails". I want to start making some military nail art right away when I'm wearing this beauty.

This dark petrol or teal shade is called "CIA = Color is Awesome" and I agree! I would say it's similar to "Skii Teal We Drop" but this has a hint of gray in it.

Last of the limited editions shades is "Liv in he Gray". Would you look as this dark gray beauty? Doesn't get much better than this.

Okay, I retract my statement... It does get a liiittle bit better! "We the Female" is my absolute favorite of the collection. I can't say if it's red or pink but it's a perfect darker shade and I own nothing like it! Great job Kerry, Suzi and OPI!

I will try to make a video the upcoming weak with live swatches and some dupes. I will post the video in a new post as soon as I'm done editing.
 
I hope you've enjoyed my swatches and I'll be back soon with some more AW goodies.

  5. Hello every one i am very happy today to share this great testimony with you, I contacted Dr Ogudugu in regards of my lover. He no longer wanted to associate with me anymore. He was interested in working out from the marriage, after begging and pleading with him I realized it was out of my hands, he really was leaving me. My co-worker went through a similar situation and told me that Dr Ogudugu had helped her. I can't say how much I'm grateful she introduced me to Him. After discussing the resolution with Dr Ogudugu, get your lover back spell has done more than what I expected. My lover not only came back to me, but has left his wife and now we are engaged, we are getting married next year, I don't know what I would have done without you. I believe you are my guardian angel you can contact him Via Email GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM Website: http://greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com/
