OPI * Swiss Collection-Part One

Fall/Winter 2010
OPI offers a new take on classic neutrals with must-have hues in the Swiss Collection. These highly anticipated lacquers feature rich shades sure to become the new standard basics, or “new-trals” for Fall/Winter 2010.

“Switzerland provided the inspiration for this season, with a backdrop of snow-peaked mountains, lush glacial valleys, and glittering lakes,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “With luxurious hues across the color spectrum, the Swiss Collection features jeweled tones from ruby red to shimmering gold and everything in between.”

This season, deep shades of rich color become the new basics, from dark green (Cuckoo for this Color) to glowing red (Color So Hot It Berns). Metallic shades of exquisite pewter (Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous) and gold (Glitzerland) offer touches of effortless elegance to every fall wardrobe.

“The Swiss Collection features the same relaxed luxury that walked the fashion runways, where timeless shades of black, camel and cream were met with a wealth of jeweled emerald, sapphire, and gold,” explains Suzi. “Wearing these colors on fingers and toes will accessorize the season’s must-have pieces – from masculine-inspired tailored jackets contrasted with ultra-feminine dresses to beautiful bohemian garments with toughened touches of leather.”~OPI Swiss Collection Press Release

Swiss Collection complements fall and winter fashion favorites with the following shades:
OPI says~ "Cozy up to this warm red apr├Ęs-ski."  This is a basic red creme.  A gorgeous color for anyone who loves reds.  The formula was awesome.  This application is 2 coats.  Dry time was quick.
OPI says~ "This rich ruby red goes with everything."  This one is a raspberry red creme.  A gorgeous berry toned red.  The formula was awesome.  This application is 2 coats. Dry time was quick.

OPI says~ "I’m addicted to this irre-switz-able chocolate shade."  I expected this one to have more of a brown tone.  This is a brick red creme.  The formula was awesome.  This application is 2 coats.  Dry time was quick.

OPI says~ "There are mountains of color in this grey-green-blue." This is a deep teal creme.  A great change for fall.  Love this color.  The formula was awesome.  This application is 2 coats.  Dry time was quick.
OPI says~ "But practice makes perfect with this brandy-red."  This is a deep burgundy creme.  The formula was great.  This application is 3 coats.  Dry time was fairly quick.
OPI Says~ "A crisp burgundy that’s your overture to great style."  First of all I love the name of this one.  This is a deeper burgundy than 'Just A Little Rosti At This' it is a little more on the vampy side.  Another great color for fall.  This formula was awesome.  This application is 2 coats.  Dry time was quick.

I love William Tell Me About OPI, Ski Teal We Drop, Color So Hot It Berns & From A To Z-Urich.  Which ones are your faves?  I also loved to formulas and the ProWide brushes.
