First, before I get into all the OPI swatches, I want to remind you to enter today's contest! CLICK HERE to enter (or read the post below this one).
I started to take photos of my nail polish swatches, but I realize it's going to take awhile. I'm going to post brand by brand until all of my polish swatches are up on this blog. Today is my entire OPI collection... all 9 of them (although I recently ordered Absolutely Alice, so that should arrive soon). I know, not a lot at all, but these are just OPI polishes and not the Sephora by OPI or Nicole by OPI polishes (which I also don't have a ton of). My OPI collection will grow, eventually.
Let me know what you think of the swatches. Are they giving you a good idea of the shade? Do I need to take better swatches? I know showing the nail color on my actual nails would be best, but to go through and paint my nails every shade just for swatch purposes would be wasteful (meaning if I just put the polish on, took photos, then removed it). If I wear the shade I'll try and remember to take a swatch photo and add it to my swatch photo collection, otherwise, they will just be on the fake nails (and if you couldn't tell, that finger in the swatch photos is on a manikin hand. That is not my real finger).
