OPI Color Paints Extravaganza

Sometimes, a collection comes along that just speaks to you. You see a million possibilities in each bottle and you can't wait to get your hands on them. This Color Paints collection was like that for me. 

OPI Color Paints Extravaganza


It has been quite a while since a mainstream brand has really tugged at my heartstrings like this. I decided to tinker around a bit, and see what I could come up with. With the exception of the final look, I used only the polishes that came with this collection.

Before we start, here are some quick macros of each shade over the Silver Canvas base coat. It is pretty streaky, and I think I might prefer to give it a blotted coat next time I bust it out.

How did I do? I have had this post in my pocket for months and months, but it is finally finished. I am pretty happy with how it ended up, so it was all worth it. I think the vertical gradient is my favorite though. Who doesn't love a good rainbow?
