The world cup might be coming to a close, but OPI is still on hand to help keep Brazil fever alive! Inspired by warm sandy beaches and tropical colours, their Brazil collection is absolutely gorgeous, and the Copacababies mini set is the perfect introduction.
I have to admit to having a ridiculous amount of nail polishes, many of which I wear once and move on to the next new thing (oops). This usually means that buying full-size bottles is a bit of a waste for me as they will never, ever get used up. This is one of the reasons I love the mini sets OPI brings out – not only do you get four shiny shades to play with (and for only about £1 more than one of their full-size polishes), the small bottles mean it’s easy to get involved with the new collection, without feeling guilty about not using them often enough!
Inside the Copacababies set are:
Next Stop The Bikini Zone – amethyst toned pewter
Kiss Me I’m Brazilian – warm pink
AmazON AmazOFF – deep jungle green
Where Did Suzi’s Man-Go – mango smoothie orange
My favourite shades are Kiss Me I’m Brazilian and Where Did Suzi’s Man-Go. Both are crème finishes and super glossy. They manage to be almost neon bright and pastel at the same time, and if I was going to buy full sizes from this collection, they would definitely be my picks.
Other than Next Stop The Bikini Zone, all the shades only need two coats to be fully opaque and last about 3 days without chipping. Kiss Me I’m Brazilian was a little streaky initially, but with some careful application you can get an even finish.
The bottles might be quite small (3.75ml) but you get enough for at least 4-5 applications from each, and I think this set is a great way to try out lots of different shades without spending mega-bucks.
The Copacababies set costs £12.99 and can be found from OPI stockists such as Chemist Direct (where it’s currently on offer for £9.99!).
