Swatch Saturday: Peanuts by OPI Collection!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! It's been a little quiet on the blog this week, sorry about that. It was our first full week of me doing homeschool with Hailey (1st grade) and I'm having to adjust my blogging schedule. Today, I have the LE OPI Halloween collection: Peanuts by OPI. They will be available in September so let's take a look at these 2 cremes and 2 glitter toppers.

Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues. 

“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador.  “Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.” 

OPI Good Grief!
The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown's favorite t-shirt. 
I'm showing 4 coats with no top coat below. Yellows aren't the easiest to paint and at 2 coats, this had uneven streakiness. Even with a third coat I still saw some less opaque patches so I added a forth. Pretty color though.

OPI Where's My Blanket???
Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.
I'm showing one coat with top coat over Good Grief! below. The glitter spread easily and I think the glitters look great over the yellow.

This stormy black is no match for Lucy's raven hair.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat. I can always use more black cremes and this one applied nicely.

OPI To Be Or Not To Beagle
Snoopy's happy-dance of colors in this joyful glitter.
I'm showing 1-2 coats below with top coat over a gradient of black and white. There are black hexes in different sizes, black bars, and colored hexes. The black and white show off the pops of both the colored and black glitters. I did one coat and then dabbed on some extra colors but it did apply nicely to begin with.

What do you think of this new limited edition Halloween collection by OPI? Any Peanuts fans out there? Thanks so much for reading!

Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.
“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”

Peanuts nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. Peanuts by OPI and Little Peanuts mini pack will be available beginning September 2014 at Professional Salons, including Chatters, Planet Beauty and ULTA. Peanuts nail lacquers will retail for $9.50 ($11.50 CAN) each; Little Peanuts mini pack will retail for $13.95 ($17.50 CAN).
