Following on from my post on Saturday about the 8 Piece Brush Set I received, I thought I would also show you this quartet of mini polishes. I am currently obsessed with Brazil, so this set was obviously high on my wish list. OPI are always doing mini sets; I have their Skyfall collection and now I have this one too! Like the last post I want to say that I am not trying to brag about what I received, I simply like reading these type of posts.
This little set, the Beach Sandies, contains four mini polishes that contain 3.75ml each, which is enough for quite a few applications. These are my first textured polishes and I love them, obviously because they are Brazil related but also because of their formulas. Although it is textured it applies like any other polish; easily and fuss free. I found that one coat was enough, but for a more vibrant colour two was needed.
You’re So Flippy Floppy is an amazing bright yellow, it reminds me of the sand on a sunny day. To me it is a really happy colour and I’m not usually one to like the colour yellow but I can make an exception for this. This colour brightens up every outfit I have worn it with so far and I think I’m going to continue to wear it into the colder months.
What’s A Little Rain Forest? is a brilliant bright blue with a slight shimmer running throughout, imagine sparkling pool water and you’ll be thinking of this colour. Out of the four this is probably my favourite colour as it is an all year round colour.
I’m Brazil Nuts Over You; first off I love the name, it’s cheesy, but also quite clever. This is a bright coraly colour with some shimmer running through which is really pretty, and looks like it would suit most skin tones nicely.
The last polish is Samba-dy Loves Purple; a beautiful pinky purple and a very summery shade. One that I’m sad to say won’t get much use till next year!
Overall this is a brilliant gift set, each mini sized polish has enough product for a good few applications and the formulas are brilliant, even with the textured element of it. I personally love the little polish sets that OPI do because you get to try out the polish without spending a fortune on each individual full sized one.
