OPI has released a new collection inspired by the country Iceland. The country is rising as a must-visit destination, thanks to the a huge variety of landscapes like volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and glaciers among many other beautiful areas. These landscapes in Iceland was the inspiration for the color palette of this collection. I’ve received four shades from the OPI Iceland Collection, which I will show you down below.
The OPI Iceland Collection consists of twelve shades and are available in the regular nailpolish, Infinite Shine and GelColor versions. I received the regular nailpolish version in the shades Aurora Berry-alis, Check Out the Old Geysers, Suzi & the Artic Fox and Turn On the Northern Lights!. These are full-sized and come in the regular OPI bottle which are transparent with black details, containing 15 mL of nail polish per bottle.
OPI Aurora Berry-alis
OPI Aurora Berry-alis is a dusty raspberry shade with a creme finish. Absolutely beautiful shade, I love the dusty aspect of the shade and I’m completely obsessed by it. The formula is thin, evenly and dries fairly quickly. Two coats are perfect for this shade.
OPI Check Out the Old Geysers
OPI Check Out the Old Geysers is a greyish, light blue shade with a soft, subtle shimmer. At first, I didn’t notice the shimmer and thought it had a creme finish until I really looked at the bottle. Speaking of the bottle, this one looks WAY different compared to the others (compare the bottles by looking at the pictures where they are standing next to each other). Not sure why, but I’ve received this from PR so it’s not a fake! The formula is also thin and applies evenly and opaque in two coats.
Here’s a picture of OPI Check Out the Old Geysers in direct sunlight, where the shimmer in the nail polish becomes more visible. Really like that small little detail and gives the finish something special. I think people who prefer creme finishes will also like this one due to the subtlety of the shimmer!
OPI Suzi & the Artic Fox
OPI Suzi & the Artic Fox is a dark grey shade that has a hint of purple with a creme finish. I’m usually more into nude/pastel shades but I’ve totally fallen in love with this shade. It looks so sophisticated and perfect for Fall/Winter. It’s my favorite shade from this collection. I’m currently wearing the shade and I will probably wear this in combination with gold nail-art for many, many times. The formula is thin and is very opaque, one coat is not opaque by a hair so two thin coats make a perfect, opaque mani.
OPI Turn On the Northern Lights!
OPI Turn On the Northern Lights! has a blue-ish purple base with multi-colored micro-shimmers. It’s a beautiful and mysterious looking shade. The base is quite transparent but because it’s so dark, it can be built up to full opacity. Due to the transparency, it is a applies a bit uneven but it’s still easy to work with since the formula is thin. I used two coats for the swatch, which seems to be not fully opaque in some areas due to the bright lighting however, it did look opaque in real life. Three thin coats would probably be preferred.
The OPI Iceland Collection for Fall/Winter 2017 is absolutely an amazing and beautiful collection that has interesting shades, with some of them also having very interesting finishes. The four shades that I’ve tried all have a nice and easy to apply formula. I’m definitely interested in checking out the other shades.
The Limited Edition OPI Iceland Collection is available for €14,95 each (regular nail polish version) at the Douglas stores and Douglas.nl. You can also check out the OPI Sales Locator for other store locations.
