OPI San Francisco Collection Swatches

Hi everyone! I hope you guys have had a great week and are getting ready for the weekend.  Today I want to share three beautiful polishes from the OPI San Francisco collection with you.  Normally when a new OPI collection comes out, I’m all over it.  There was something way too familiar about this collection though.  Most of the colors look like stuff OPI has put out within the last year with their Germany, Skyfall and Euro Centrale collections.  The three polishes I’m sharing today are the only ones that were original enough for me to buy.

First is a stunning metallic silver called I Haven’t the Foggiest.  I used two coats of polish to cover minor imperfections, but the formula is so wonderful that you could get away with one coat.

I Haven’t the Foggiest is extremely shiny and reflective.  I had to take a picture with flash to show off how shiny it is.  The second picture with no flash still does it justice.

Next we have Peace, Love and OPI.  This color is gorgeous! It’s a color-shifting polish that goes from gray to purple to sage.  My camera didn’t quite do it justice, but the shifting adds a lot of interest.  This is a perfect color for fall and just overall very cool.  The swatches below are with two coats of polish, which you really need to build up the color.

Finally we have one of the Liquid Sand colors, Alcatraz Rocks! This polish is absolutely beautiful, and one of my favorite Liquid Sand colors OPI has debuted.  It’s a deep purple, almost blue color with multicolored glitter.  Of course like all other Liquid Sand polishes, this dries to a matte textured finish.  You need two coats to get the optimal color and texture and no top coat.  Alcatraz Rocks! is my favorite polish from the San Francisco collection.

In honor of this collection, I want to share some pictures of me in San Francisco.  These were taken when I visited my uncle for spring break in 2007.  I really love San Francisco and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited.
