Pearls and LBDs: OPI x Breakfast at Tiffany’s holiday 2016 collection

title

Fun fact about me, I have never seen the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. To be honest, I’m not even really sure what it’s about.

The iconic movie starring Audrey Hepburn is so synonymous with lots of things, pearls, Tiffany and Co., little black dresses, croissants, oversized sunglasses, those long cigarette holders…  Although I’m not familiar with the storyline of the movie, I know the iconic Holly Golightly look.

To celebrate this classic film, OPI has released a 16 colour collection of nail polishes, 12 shades in GelColour and nail lacquer and six shades in Infinite Shine and GelColour.

Since the holidays are well known for jewel tones and glitter, there are tons of reds (four of them) and some sparkle polishes are well (also four).  Then there’s Tiffany’s blue, a black, and some silvers to round out the collection.

In the Infinite Shine line, there’s only one colour that is repeated (I Believe in Manicures- the Tiffany blue), and five others that I’m sorry to say aren’t the most holiday-esque shades. In the swatches below, the Infinite Shine polishes are the ones with the silver caps.

Overall this isn’t my favourite holiday collection, but there are some shades in here that I really do love. I was very excited about the glitters, however, as you can see, they go on quite sheer, so you’ll definitely have to layer them (Sunrise… Bedtime! is amazing over Apartment for Two).

A lot of the colours are highly dupable and this collection could really be for any season, not just holidays. If you’re fan of Breakfast at Tiffany’s though, you’ll want to get your pretty little paws on some of these.

Have you picked up any shades from OPI x Breakfast at Tiffany’s collection?
