OPI Spanish Collection

Fall 2009 is shaping up as a beautiful season for nail polish. I still have to show you the limited edition Chanel colors, but today I'm taking a break from worshipping Chanel in favor of OPI's Spain Collection (La Coleccion De España).

There are twelve colors in the Spain Collection, most fall under the obligated red, fuchsia, purple, etc.. There's also Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow, the must-have green polish every range includes this season, which should delight green polish fans. It's beautiful and dark (I played with it at Ulta), and if I didn't already have Zoya Envy I might have been tempted just because it's so special. And I rarely wear green polish...

The colors I chose were Barefoot in Barcelona, a beautiful classic warm beige (you can see it on my nails in this post), Can You Tapas This? (rich brownish burgundy) and Give Me Moor! (deep purple with subtle red shimmer). All are easy to wear and are quite elegant. Barefoot in Barcelona is my current go-to shade, because I don't need to worry about it clashing with my clothes or overwhelming anyone. The dark colors are as sexy as they come and definitely say "fall", even if I hate to admit the cold days are coming.

OPI Spanish Collection ($8 per bottle) is available at Ulta and from several online sources.

  1. Thank you so much for the review, Barcelona Barefoot looks beautiful on you, very natural but different.

  2. Aha! I knew it. The other day I was in the only Sephora we have here asking for green OPI nail polish and the SAs were giving me a strange look and one said that there is no OPI collection this season that has green in it - that there was one green 2 collections ago.
    Well, that only means I'm going to have problems finding the color here... :)

  3. Anon, thank you :)
    If I had to choose only one color from this collection it'd be Barcelona.

  4. Ines, our Sephoras only have the Sephora by OPI range, so at least you're lucky to have the regular OPI line. It's weird you don't get the same collections, though. Did they have the French one last fall?
