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
