OPI Hong Kong Collection, image courtesy of OPI

So OPI brings out a bumper collection of 12 shades for Spring/Summer.  Inspired by the cosmopolitian city of Hong Kong, they give us a lot of bold, bright cremes and sparkly, blinged-out shimmers.

I really liked this collection, there is a colour for everyone, cool toned, warmed toned and neutrals.

I only got two of the colours, so far, from Transdesign.com.  I could have definately gone for a lot more.  But….baby steps!! And transdesign had a great turnaround and great prices!! Note to my Trinis:  Transdesign ships internationally, so check out their low prices!

Jade is the New Black, OPI

Jade is the New Black is the colour of the summer.  Everyone has been talking about this one (as a matter fact, OPI has done a good job in hyping their recent collections).  This colour is a continuation of last year’s hot green colour, but instead of the minty, pastely greens, this one is a bold, deep but bright, leafy green.  I love green and this one definately does not disappoint.  I think its more wearable than its paler cousins and would look good on all types of skin colours.  In my opinion, this one is more sophisticated, would look great as a pop of colour with summer whites and beiges.

Hot & Spicy, OPI

The other colour is Hot & Spicy.  This is a beautiful pedicure colour!  Coral-orange creme, midtone colour.  Like a cantaloupe.  Very fresh, very beachy!!! This would look amazing with a tan, bronzey or dark skin.  Another hit for OPI.  This is photographing more orange than it really is.  It’s definitely a dark cantaloupe colour.

I think I’ll next get Bling Dynasty, Meet Me On the Star Ferry and maybe Dim Sum Plum.

Check out this collection at OPI.  Temptalia has some great swatches!

What are you going to get????
