OPI Fall / Winter 2013 San Francisco Collection

Hi everyone!
I have the OPI San Francisco collection to share with you today. I've swatched it what seems like ages ago and haven't had time to post it earlier somehow booo! Would you believe me if I said I have a folder with over 4600 pictures to sort out, select, edit and publish? :O

So here we go!

I Knead Sour-Dough is a very unusual reddish brown with strong purple undertones. I loved it in the bottle and even more so on the nails, yes I'm weird like that haha. Formula was nice and easy to work with, covering in 2 coats, offering a lot of glow and minimum brushstrokes.

Embarca-Dare Ya is a bold magenta shimmer with a touch of gold shimmer. It's not the shade of pink I naturally reach for but it's still lovely. 2 coats coverage and a great formula as well.

Muir Muir On The Wall is a blackened base with a beautiful plum shimmer, lit from within with a dark-around-the-edges effect, beautiful I tell you! The first coat was a bit even but it looked perfect with the second coat.

In The Cable Car-Pool Lane is a deep berry creme. Again, not my favorite color ever but creamy and a pleasure to work with! I used 2 coats here.

First Date At The Golden Gate is a beautiful bright red creme with a crelly consistency. You can't go wrong with reds like this! Formula was more sheer here and required 3 coats for compete coverage. Application tip : use 3 thin coats instead of 2 medium to avoid flooded cuticles ;-)

Lost On Lombard is a deeper shade of red with a slight brown hue, another classic red that will suit a wide variety of skin tones. True 2 coater and trouble-free application.

A-Piers To Be Tan is a medium tan brown creme. Warm and delicious, it's the perfect brown for Fall and one I would definitely recommend, even to non brown lovers. Application was nice and easy, typically what you'd expect from OPI. Coats used : 2, plus topcoat.

Dining Al Frisco is a bright sky blue shimmer with a frosty look. Truth be told, I wasn't sure at all what to expect and although it did require an extra careful application, the end result is beautiful. I used 2 coats topped with matte and regular topcoat to smooth out the surface.

Keeping Suzi At Bay is a nice navy blue creme with a faint faded look, beautiful. Application was pretty much perfect in just 2 coats.

Peace & Love & OPI is a medium grey base filled with green to purple duochrome shimmer. The direct lighting in my picture make it look greener than it is most of the time but the shimmer just wouldn't shy away! Formula was on the sheer side, I used 3 thin coats here but you should achieve the same effect with just one coat over black.

Incognito In Sausalito is really dark blurple creme, basically black under regular lighting. I love dark colors so I actually loved this one! Ultra pigmented and with a great formula, I used  2 thin coats plus topcoat but you could get away with just one if your nails are shorter.

Overall : 
A pretty nice collection with just 2 reds haha but most importantly a few must haves! My top picks : I Knead Sour-Dough, Muir Muir On The Wall and Peace & Love & OPI.

What do you think about these? Did you try any of them?
