Swatch Satuday: Brazil by OPI Swatches, Part 2: The Earth Tones!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! This Swatch Saturday features the other half of the Brazil by OPI collection! Yesterday I showed you The Brights and the day before I showed you the adorable mini set of liquid sand polishes called Beach Sandies. Make sure you check out those posts if you haven't already! This collection has something for everyone! Bright fun colors, textured summery shimmers, and these gorgeous neutrals! 

OPI Amazon…Amazoff: I'm making the switch to this deep jungle green.
Two coats with no top coat. This is my favorite of the set. I did, however, have some staining of my cuticles after removal. I definitely recommend scrubbing with baking soda and a little water if this happens to you, it took it all off. I've already worn this twice regardless because I love it!

OPI OPI Scores A Goal! Make your point in this winning shade of rich chocolate.
Two coats with no top coat. 

OPI I São Paulo Over There: He was sipping coffee with this mocha toned beauty.
Two coats with no top coat.

OPI Taupe-less Beach: There's nothing optional about wearing this enticing taupe.
Two coats with no top coat.

OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around: Nobody can stop me from wearing this creamy nude!
Three coats with no top coat.

OPI Next Stop..The Bikini Zone: This amethyst-toned pewter suits me just fine.
Three coats with no top coat. This has glass flecks and a color shift depending on the angle of the light.

 These macros help show the color shift more. Below is one coat over black.

Here is a comparison of 4 neutrals in this collection. The three cremes make a nice ombre don't they?

What do you think of this half of the Brazil by OPI Collection? Is this more your style or are you drawn toward the bright half more? Which are your favorites? My top three are Amazon…Amazoff, OPI Scores A Goal!, and I São Paulo Over There. Thanks so much for reading!

  1. Beautiful swatches! I really like I São Paulo Over There, Taupe-less Beach and Don't Bossa Nova Me Around (Taupe-less Beach being my favorite).

  2. Thank for your sharing your gorgeous swatches!
    I can't wait to get Don't Bossa Nova Me Around & OPI Scores A Goal!
    Hopefully Don't Bossa Nova Me Around will be opaque enough for me

  3. This is a great collection! And you're right--they do make the perfect ombre!

  4. My favorite is probably OPI Scores a Goal - I just love rich brown shades. Great swatches!

  5. These are gorgeous, I think I prefer these ones to the brights
