'OPI Haul!!'

When I visited home a few weeks ago I sort of went crazy with OPI. It isn't available where I live now (or where I'm moving to) so I felt like I needed to stock up! Makes total sense, right? ;) The boyfriend would be completely horrified if he saw this.. good thing he's not into beauty blogs!!

OPI Haul

Read on for close-ups and swatches!

*All swatches are with 2 coats, though you could probably get away with 1 for many of them! A+ there!

left to right:  OPI Ink,  My Private Jet,  Bubble Bath
OPI Ink... You probably just saw this in a NOTD not long ago so I didn't swatch it. If you missed it click here!

My Private Jet... This was my first OPI nail lacquer, and it remains one of my favorites!! I've done a NOTD with this one as well, so if you want to see a swatch click here.

Bubble Bath... I have been wanting a light milky looking pink. However, I HATE how streaky they apply! After seeing multiple swatches and reviews I broke down and had to get it. I freakin love it! Seriously. It is so amazing to apply! With only 2 coats it looks amazing, and with 3 you are totally golden =) I recommend this a million times over! (swatch is down with the next group of colors)

Charged Up Cherry... I have this color on my toes! It's just a nice sort of dark pink that leans toward red.

Strawberry Margarita... The first time I got gel nails I had them done in this color, and just fell in love with it! I don't know what it is about this particular shade of pink... it's just perfect!

LA Paz-itively Hot... This pink has a really pretty sort of purple shimmers. It's very pretty up close!

Ate Berries in the Canaries... I saw this purple-y color on someone's blog (can't remember who) and knew I had to have it.

Hot & Spicy... I was in desperate need of a coral/orange polish! Though I don't think it does anything for my skin-tone, I still like it!

Cajun Shrimp... This one will be my next NOTD =)

Red My Fortune Cookie... I love this red shade because it's bright! A perfect true bright red.
