Even though it’s still August, Fall releases have been slowly rolling out and nail polish is no exception. But that’s totally fine because OPI’s Iceland collection is just freaking gorgeous. There are a lot of shades in this collection, so come enjoy this post 😉
“Iceland” consists of crèmes and a couple “other” finishes. Going with a newer tradition with OPI, this is available in both the regular line and their signature Infinite Shine.
OPI knocked this out of the park and I’m not surprised! They’re seriously consistent when it comes to great formulas and on-theme colors. Every formula was a two-coater in this collection, so I’m not going to bother listing how many coats were used with the photos. A few were sheer on the first coat (dare I say, even somewhat streaky), but with a decent second application you can see a huge difference in opacity and even-ness.
Icelanded A Bottle of OPI is a light brown-grey crème. This dried to a surprisingly greyer color than I expected.
The Taupe of the Iceberg is a dark taupe crème). It’s a tad darker in person, probably in the medium-shade realm.
Krona-logical Order is an even more dark brown crème than That’s What Friends Are For. It’s one of those dark browns that almost looks black, but when you can tell it isn’t. (Which I love.)
Can we talk about the light green This Isn’t Greenland? I mean, really. My heart sings. There’s something about light greens that makes my legs weak. I felt complete once I put this on.
Rebel Without A Moss is perfect for a vampy-earthy Fall shade. This might even be great for the greens that come aroudn the holiday season! Bravo, OPI. Bravo.
I have a feeling I’m in the minority by saying my favorite in this collection is Check Out the Old Geysirs. I’m a sucker for light blue shades, even though green is my favorite color. (Is that strange?) The bottle shows light pink shimmers, but that doesn’t seem to excessively show up on the nail. But I don’t care!
Less is Norse, a navy blurple crème. This was an interesting shade – not quite blue, not quite purple. Blurple! Which is my favorite in-between shades.
Turn On the Northern Lights is a slight iridescent with purple base. They mimicked the Northern Lights in this shade, and it looks so much prettier in person. I’m nowhere skilled enough to capture the beautiful effect of this polish.
Suzi & The Arctic Fox is a dark purple crème. It almost comes across as a grey-ple (grey + purple). This applied a little streaky on the first coat and I had to be careful on the second for an even distribution. Regardless, it turned out nice!
This really is One Heckla of a Color! Is it weird to call a color cute? Because that’s the best adjective I have – cute. It’s a cute pink – love it!
Reykjavik Has All the Hot Spots is a pink frost. It’s pretty sheer and you have to be careful on application or the strokes will show. But if you figure out how to use it, this looks pretty nice!
Aurora Berry-alis is a berry pink crème2 and up there as one of the favorites! But I’m a sucker for berry shades.
N-iceland, another pink crème but less tinted. When I took the Googles for a description of this shade, there were VERY different colors popping up – like, dark and cool-toned. Anyone have an idea what this conspiracy theory means??
I was afraid the shade I’ll Have A Gin & Tectonic was going to wash out my skin tone. It’s a light peach-pink crème, but it actually didn’t wash my skin tone out! It has enough hue for a pop of color.
As mentioned, all these shades are 2 coaters, which isn’t that unusual for polish. There isn’t a formula I yelled at, or a shade that made me angry. Which shade are you eyeing from this collection? Let me know in the comment section!
