opi swiss collection part 2

hey kids! here comes the second round of polishes from the OPI Swiss Collection for 2010. if you missed part one, click here :)

from A to Z-urich is probably my favorite out of the "reds" from this bunch. a lovely ruby color that conveys warmth without any brown tones, unlike the others in this collection. this type of red is very flattering to many different shades of skin color so that is a plus. this is a two coat wonder and i love it.

this shimmery fellow is called cuckoo for this color.  i laughed out loud when i read the name for the first time, no joke.  idk why it struck me as so amusing haha.  it is a cool blue tinged almost racing green color that has the illusion of long strips of shiny silver shimmer running through it.  i have to say, it looks extremely similar to china glaze's emerald fitzgerald, and unfortunately i didn't care too much for that one and i don't for this one either.  but hey, i'm sure it would be gorgeous on some folks!

now here is a shimmer that i la la loved!  yodel me on my cell is seriously to die for in real life, and these pictures unfortunately do it no justice.  sexy, flashy, and just the right shade of aqua blue = love for me!  it has a hint of green in it too, which is always good.  this is a three coater.

the color to watch is a good name for this polish, because you definitely have to keep your eye on her!  i swear this baby is a chameleon.  the sheerish purple lilac shimmer sometimes has a strong blue flash, sometimes looks almost smokey, and then sometimes looks straight up blingy!  very festive and will keep you guessing :)  another three coater here.

in my opinion, any collection is incomplete without some hint of gold, so glitzerland sealed the deal for me on declaring the opi swiss collection a success haha :)  it's a very cool toned gold, with silver sparkles, rather than gold on gold, which was a nice change of pace.  it's the same texture as lucerne-tainly look marvelous, foil-like but also glitter-esque in texture.  complex and stunning.  two coats!

and last we have my dahling gorgeous ski teal we drop!  i think this polish is seriously ga ga gorgeous!  i might even like it more than suzi says feng shui, which is my current favorite opi blue creme, but the jury is still out.  i can't think of a color that comes close to this grayish blue babe, and even if i could, i doubt it would have such an amazingly opaque finish in two coats.  this was ALMOST a one-coater people!  that is a big deal for me haha.  sexy, simple, and chic.  loves!
