OPI Soft Shades 2016 - My Picks

The 2016 Soft Shades Collection by OPI features 6 pastel crème polishes.  Here are my picks:

I Am What I Amethyst is a pastel periwinkle shade.  The name of this throws me off a bit since amethysts are deep purple, but regardless of the name I love this shade! It's flattering and unique to my collection.

This Cost Me A Mint is a mint green crème polish.  It's pretty much a doup for That's Hula-rious that OPI released last year in the 2015 spring/summer Hawaii collection.  So if you have that one, I would pass on this.

OPI New Orleans Collection - My Picks

Here are my picks from the Spring/Summer 2016 New Orleans Collection from OPI

I Manicure For Beads is a bright, yet dusty purple crème polish.

Let Me Bayou A Drink is a pale pink (almost white) with a bit of shimmer.

Spare Me A French Quarter? is a raspberry crème.  Love this one.  It's a beautiful shade for a pedicure.  This will be on my toes for sure!

Got Myself Into A Jam-balaya is a pink/coral crème.  This type of shade has been in a lot of polish collections this spring.

Rich Girls & Po-Boys is a bright blue crème.  This would also be a fun pedicure color!

She's A Bad Muffuletta! is a bright red crème and one of my top picks from this collection.  This is another one that would be great for a pretty summer pedicure.

Son Of A Nutcracker

Son Of A Nutcracker is part of the "Cheers" collection that China Glaze released for this past holiday season.  I didn't purchase it back then because it didn't look Christmassy to me.  It looked like something that should be in a spring or summer collection.  Recently, I found it on sale so I picked it up.  I'm so glad that I did.  It's a beautiful deep coral with orange shimmer that glows on the nail.  It's way more appropriate for spring and summer in my opinion and I'm enjoying it this time of year.  This would be a gorgeous pedicure color.  I'm glad that I didn't miss out on it!

Picture Polish Merge

Merge is one of 5 polishes that Picture Polish has released for spring 2016.  It's described as a gray/brown scatter holographic, but it can look a bit more taupe depending on the lighting. I chose this one because of how different it is from all of the other colors that have been introduced this spring and it seems office friendly.
