OPI Autumn/Winter 2016 - Washington DC

OPI Washington DC

The latest collection by OPI is Washington DC, featuring 12 new shades for Autumn/Winter 2016. This collection is a collaboration with actress Kerry Washington, who recently became OPI's first ever Creative Ambassador and has worked closely with the brand to develop the polishes. I have all 12 shades to show you today, guaranteed to get you in the mood for Autumn!

CIA = Color is Awesome is a dark teal creme. Good 2 coat formula, remember your top coat though as its one of those rich colours that could potentially stain (I say this with every brand!) 2 coats plus top coat

Stay Off The Lawn! is a lush forest green creme. I adore this colour! The formula is dreamy, practically one coat but I use 2 as a rule.

Suzi - The First Lady of Nails is a dark olive green creme. 2 easy coats plus top coat

"Liv" in the Gray is a dark grey creme with a hint of green undertone. 2 easy coats plus top coat

Shh...It's Top Secret! is a very dark brown creme. This one is best in 3 thin coats or 2 thick ones. I used 2 thick coats plus top coat

Kerry Blossom is a deep plum creme. This is super pretty! 2 coats plus top coat

We The Female is a rich garnet red. This looks a little streaky on my nails but it's not so in real life. 2 smooth coats plus top coat

Madam President is a bright pink/red creme. Perfect formula, 2 coats plus top coat

Freedom of Peach is a warm peachy orange creme. This was a tiny bit patchy but evened out well with 2 thick coats.

Yank My Doodle is a tawny copper creme. This one is pretty unusual in my stash, I like it a lot more than I thought I would. 2 coats plus top coat

Inside the ISABELLEtway is a malted brown creme. 2 easy coats plus top coat

Pale to the Chief is a light beige with a soft pearl finish, and the only polish in the collection that isn't a straight up creme. The white pearl sheen can't really be seen in my swatch unfortunately. The formula for this was a little patchy so I used 3 coats plus top coat.

As a whole, this collection isn't too exciting but there's a few nice shades and I'm pleased with how good the formulas are. Let me know what you think!

My picks: Kerry Blossom, Stay Off The Lawn!, Yank My Doodle

  1. This collection is stunning & as usual you show it off effortlessly. I seriously need all the colours

  2. I love this collection! It's very elegant and probably one of the best collaborations with O.P.I. I'm not a fan of Kerry Washington, but I have to admit - she has a great taste and sense of style.))

  3. Nothing ground breaking but some beautiful falls cremes nonetheless. Really loving those greens!! Gorgeous swatches Allie!

  4. These all look so lush and elegant on your long beautiful nails Allie! I loved this collection :)

  5. They might not seem exciting, but I am so in love with this collection! I own six of them already which is more than I usually get from a collection. Your swatches look so beautiful!

  6. I really love this collection, I've not got around to doing a full review yet as it's so huge but I've loved creating nail art with them. Gorgeous swatches!

  7. Really cool swatches. I like the second color. I am sure it would be looking good on Almond nails that I saw. I also want to do all this colors, because they are so pretty!
