OPI San Francisco - The Shimmers ♥ Swatches and Review

OPI San Francisco - The Shimmers

This fall OPI is bringing us 15 new polishes for their San Francisco collection!  6 shimmers, 6 crèmes, and 3 Liquid Sand polishes.  Today I have the Shimmers for you!  To avoid repeating myself, I used two coats for all shades.  The pictures are taken without topcoat.

Dining Al Frisco is a blue frost with tiny cyan shimmers mixed in.  Since this is a frost it very slowly and carefully to avoid brushstrokes.  The effort is worth it!  I usually avoid frosts like the plague but I quite like this one!

OPI Haven't the Foggiest OPI Haven't the Foggiest OPI Haven't the Foggiest

Haven’t the Foggiest is a darkened silver shimmer that I love.  It’s worth noting that I did see the faintest of brush strokes.  I this color for representing fog!

OPI Peace & Love & OPI OPI Peace & Love & OPI OPI Peace & Love & OPI

Peace & Love & OPI is a duochrome that shifts from gunmetal to purple to a dark green teal.  I could not truly capture it’s magic on camera but believe me when I say this one is a stunner!

Muir Muir on the Wall (named after Muir Woods) is a sexy scarlet shimmer in a smoky black base.  This vampy shade is perfect for fall!  I can see myself wearing this one frequently.

OPI Embarca-Dare Ya! OPI Embarca-Dare Ya! OPI Embarca-Dare Ya!

Embarca-Dare Ya! is a pretty yet boring magenta shimmer.  I feel like we have all seen this shade before.

OPI I Kneed Sour-Dough OPI I Kneed Sour-Dough OPI I Kneed Sour-Dough

I Knead Sour-Dough is a pink shimmer in a brown base, which gives it a very unique appearance of oxidized rust.  Although I am not drawn to these warmer shades, I can see a lot of people loving this one. 

The OPI San Francisco collection officially launches August 7th.  Which shades are on your wish list?  Which do you want to see next - the crèmes or the Liquid Sands?
