New Release: OPI — Pop Culture (Summer 2018)

 

Collection: OPI 2018 Summer, Pop Culture

OPI has released a new effects collection, Pop Culture, for Summer 2018!

Introducing six new vibrant colors infused with bubble-like translucent particles for textured nails like you’ve never seen before.

 

The new collection consists of 6 new limited edition shades of Nail Lacquer. Frankly, I hate most textured polishes, and a bubble effect on the nail just makes me think of disease. Shudder. Hard pass for me.

At least the colors look cute! They’re a little shimmery, too.

Pink Bubbly
Ahhh, sip slowly and enjoy a nail polish manicure of pure pink effervescence.

OPI Pops
Raspberry red nail polish to make your nails POP-POP-POP!

Hate to Burst Your Bubble
A not so mellow yellow nail polish that treats your nails to an explosive burst of color.

Bumpy Road Ahead
Hang on! A galactic blue nail polish that will launch your nails into another dimension.

Days of Pop
Let your nail polish tell a story about your favorite old jeans and a bottle of pop.

Pop Star
Bring on the paparazzi! This poppin’ purple nail polish is ready to pounce.

SinfulColors Nail Polish in Witch Hazel Bohn, swatch

SinfulColors — Witch Hazel Bohn (Glow-in-the-Dark Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: SinfulColors 2017 Halloween, Night of the Living Red

You guys are going to help me out with the naming of this one.

Witch Hazel Bohn (2297) is a glow-in-the-dark polish I picked up from SinfulColors’ latest Halloween collection (it may be a re-release from a previous year, though…I can’t quite tell from the code). And I simply do not understand the name. Witch hazel, sure. But Bohn? What’s that? Google has failed me, as well. Is there a pun I’m not getting? Maybe Bohn sounds like bone? But why Bohn?!?!?! Is there someone famous named Hazel Bohn? SinfulColors’ description doesn’t help much, either: “You glow, ghoul! Skull-shaped glitters in a glow in the dark base are drop-dead awesome.

SinfulColors Nail Polish in Witch Hazel Bohn (Glow-in-the-Dark)

I MUST KNOW!

Anyway. As usual, this ostensibly glow-in-the-dark nail polish is a greenish-yellow, and leaves that tint on the nail. Now, I haven’t tried too many glow-in-the-dark polishes in my life, but I literally can never get them to work. I don’t know if it’s because I always cheap out and get them from Claire’s or something, but I put on five coats, charge it under bright light for ages, and they never give me so much as a feeble glow.

SinfulColors Nail Polish in Bite Me, swatch

SinfulColors — Bite Me (Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: SinfulColors 2017 Halloween, Night of the Living Red

I don’t always manage to pick up limited edition SinfulColors polishes,
but this fall I lucked out and found a SinfulColors Halloween display at a local Rexall—during a buy-two-get-two-free nail polish promo! (Somehow they weren’t ringing up with the discount, possibly because they were new shades, but the super cool cashier was very sweet and gave me the sale price, anyway. Thanks, chica!)

One of the shades I picked up was Bite Me (2332), which in the bottle appears to be a rich red shimmer with assorted, flat-black glitter shapes, including a sprinkling of hexagons.

SinfulColors says: “This dark brick red shade has flecks of black glitter for a speck-tacular and spooky effect.
