Swatch Sunday: OPI Brights Collection 2015

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! Are you in the mood for more bright colors? 'Tis the season. I have the 9 polish OPI Brights Collection 2015 for you today. There are 6 new colors and 3 popular colors rereleased from last year's neon collection. You will find comparisons of the original neons(2014) and these new brights in this post as well! Let's take a look.

We will begin with the 6 new shades:

OPI Can't Hear Myself Pink!
Shimmering metallic pink.
I'm showing three coats below without top coat.
The shimmer is gorgeous, it shifts to gold out of the direct light.

OPI I Sea You Wear OPI
Iridescent metallic blue.
I'm showing three thin coats without top coat below.
Another gorgeous shade, the shimmer shifts to purple out of direct light.

Scorching hot read crelly.
I'm showing three squishy coats below without top coat.
The "cremes" in this collection are all very squishy and shiny, but more opaque than jellies. Gorgeous red!

OPI My Car Has Navy-gation
Deep navy blue crelly.
I'm showing two squishy coats below without top coat.
Bold and fun! There is slight visible nail line at 2 coats. No staining upon removal.

OPI On Pinks & Needles
Hot pink matte hex glitters in a clear base.
I'm showing one coat over I STOP For Red with top coat.
There was slight glitter placement needed on the bigger pieces but it was nicely dense and didn't need more than one coat.

OPI The Berry Thought of You
Delectable purple toned pink crelly.
I'm showing two squishy coats below without top coat.

The next three are re-released colors that originally appeared in last summer's neon collection. The formulas are different and the colors are slightly off as well. The biggest change in this year's new formula is that they don't dry to a neon satin/matte finish. They are shiny without top coat and therefor a lot easier to apply. Let's take a look and compare to last years so you can decide which you prefer.

OPI Down To The Core-al
Brilliant coral with shimmer.
I'm showing three coats below without top coat.

In comparison:
  • 2014 OPI Neons: satin/matte finish, slightly brighter, three coats shown and it's uneven.
  • 2015 OPI Brights: shiny finish, easy to apply formula, only two coats needed.

OPI Hotter Than You Pink
Hot pink with blue shimmer.
I'm showing three coats below without top coat.
There is still slight visible nail line at three coats. 

In comparison:
  • 2014 OPI Neons: satin/matte finish, brighter, uneven formula, three coats.
  • 2015 OPI Brights: shiny finish, easy to work with formula, three coats.

OPI Life Gave Me Lemons
Citrusy lemon-lime crelly.
I'm showing three coats below without top coat.

In comparison:
  • 2014 OPI Neons: brighter, three coats, finish is slightly less shiny than new but not satin.
  • 2015 OPI Brights: three coats, shinier finish, easy formula.

If you made it this far, thank you! What did you think of the OPI Brights Collection 2015? I like that they have improved the formulas on the re-released colors, even if that means they aren't as bright as before. This collection as a whole is typical OPI style with more than half of the colors in the pink/red/coral range but I like the variety and the additional blues and citron green. Which are your favorites? Thanks so much for reading!

  3. I really like the colors, but some of them are a bit too dark to be called 'brights' in my opinion :)

  4. I'll probably be skipping this collection, but lovely swatches!
