New 2016 releases and swatches..

Opi soft shades collection and new orleans collection by polishedblissfully 

Hi guys welcome back to my blog,

I'm sorry I've been mia but I'm so glad to be back. I'm excited about today's post and I hope you will be also. I have 2 collections to show you from opi. It will be a long one so get comfortable. First I'll show you the swatches of the gorgeous new orleans collection. I only got 6 because if I'm honest I have plenty of dupes of this collection but I couldn't resist picking up a few. All swatches are 2 coats no topcoat. Lets start..

opi new orleans collection 

Take a right on bourbon..

Take a right on bourbon is a stunning metallic silver. Opaque in 2 coats. Very easy to apply, and the perfect base for lots of nail art.

Spare me a French Quarter..

Spare me a French Quarter is a really pretty vibrant pink. This one could be a one coat but 2 coats will make it pop so much more.

I manicure for beads..

I manicure for beads is a creme purple polish, it's so vibrant and absolutely stunning. Fully opaque in 2 coats.

Rich girls & po-boys..

Opi Rich girls & po-boys

Rich girls & po-boys is a gorgeous bright blue. It's opaque in 1 coat. It's so smooth in the application which is great. My only flaw is i found this one a bit thin.

Crawfishin for a compliment..

Crawfishin for a compliment is a pretty peach colour. Again fully opaque in 2 thin coats. Also another one for summer.

I'm sooo swamped..

Opi I'm sooo swamped..

I'm sooo swamped is a pretty green the name suits it perfect because it really does look like a swampy green. I got this one for doing leaves in my nail art designs.

So here goes with the opi soft shades 2016. These were a bugger to photograph. So light they almost looked white. Lets get into it.

Stop it I'm blushing..

opi stop it I'm blushing..

Stop it I'm blushing is gorgeous. It's a dusky pastel pink with a beige undertone. Since these were so light I thought I'd need a few coats but I was pleasantly surprised because 2 coats were all I needed.

One chic chick...

opi one chic chick..

One chic chick is my favourite of the 6, it's a pretty pastel yellow. Again 2 coats is all I needed but 3 would definitely intensify the opacity.

This cost me a mint is a pastel light green. It's opaque in 3 coats. Another favourite of mine, I think it will be a must have summer shade for me.

It's in the cloud..

It's in the cloud is a cream colour. I actually thought it was white but it's definitely more cream. This one will take 3 coats for full opacity.

It's a boy..

It's a boy is a very pale blue. I love this one. Again fully opaque in 3 coats. Another great shade for spring and summer.

So that was hella long... hope you enjoyed today's post. I'm so happy with the polishes in these collections. Like I said above the only one I found a problem with was rich girls & po-boys which was a little thin. If you could only get 1 I'd suggest that you get the soft shades because they are fabulous.
Thanks for reading guys, see you in the next one.

Love khylie xx
