OPI - Washington DC by Kerry Washington Swatches, Review and Giveaway

Hello all,

Welcome back to my little piece of the internet.

Today we are looking at some of the colours from the new OPI Washinton DC line.  This is a fall friendly, sultry line and it was designed by Oliva Pope herself, okay, okay, by the real life person Kerry Washington.





I love Scandal and I am sure you do too.  It is, hands down, one of the best tv shows ever made.

Who doesn't want to be Olivia Pope?

Now, at the very least, we can have her nails!

I picked up both mini sets to try out.


WASHINGTON DC LIMITED EDITION MINI COLLECTION


This set of three are the LE of the collection and were designed and named by Kerry Washington.




All three of the LE colours went on smooth and were completely opaque in two coats.  They dried quickly and lasted 4 days (topcoat free) without chipping.  They are gorgeous and glossy and will work perfectly with every skin tone.

They are the perfect fall colours and are going to be on my nails from today through November!

I am going to pick up the full size bottles of all three LE colours.


WASHINGTON DC MINI COLLECTION


This set of four polishes are inspired by Kerry Washington and are a sampling of the rest of the collection.  This four set is a perfect cross section of the entire collection. 




All four of the nail polish went on streaky and patchy and needed three coats to be opaque.  As above, they dried quickly and lasted 4 days (topcoat free) without chipping.  We The Female and CIA are both glossy and shiny and look great on.  Pale to the Chief and Never a Dulles Moment, while beautiful colours, applied unevenly and even after four coats, I couldn't get them to even out.  It is a shame, because the colours are amazing.  I am going to work with them and see if I can even them out.



We The Female, Pale to the Chief, CIA, Never a Dulles Moment

If I can figure it out, I will be getting the full size of Pale to the Chief.  It is so beautiful.

This is a fantastic collection overall.  The colours are beautiful and fall season appropriate.  Sometime with these large collections, OPI can miss the mark.  With Washington DC, they have not let us down. 

If you only order one, make it "Liv" in the Grey.  So gorgeous.
