OPI Nordic collection swatches + review (partial)

purchased myself button2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood Monday morning, lovely readers! I hope you had a great weekend. I was fighting through some anxiety (and a migraine) this weekend, so I didn’t really do much. I’ve picked up a few of the OPI Nordic collection nail polishes, and I’d like to show them to you today!
OPI Nordic Collection | Be Happy And Buy Polish

First up is OPI Can’t Afjord Not To, a bright but slightly dusty orange polish. My bottle was a little thin on the formula, but it wasn’t too bad. This is 2 coats, no top coat, inside light box:

Next is OPI Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm?, a nail polish that is almost impossible to get a color accurate photo of. I don’t have another color like this in my stash. This is 2 coats, no top coat, natural light.

Then we have My Dogsled is a Hybrid, and I absolutely LOVE this nail polish. The color is just gorgeous and the formula was flawless. Though I don’t have a dupe in my stash, I am planning on doing a comparison post soon! This is 2 coats, no top coat, natural light:

Last we have My Voice is a Little Norse, shown here over Is That Silva (OPI Bond Magnetic). This is a seriously sparkly nail polish. I’ve used 2 coats of it over 2 coats of Is That Silva, plus 1 coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and 2 coats Digital Nails Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That. First pictures in a lightbox, with no top coat:

I have to say that I was incredibly impressed with the formulas with the creme polishes; though CANT was a little thin, all three self-leveled really nicely. I’d love to know what your favorite polish of these four are! Have you picked up any of the others from this collection? I keep thinking I should pick up one of the browns, but they don’t inspire me whatsoever. Have a great Monday, and I’ll see you later!

  1. I looked at this collection in stores a few times but nothing really jumped out at me. I wanted to get Dogsled but it was always sold out. I like the look of Voice with the top coat on it better than without. Great swatches as usual!

  2. I am in love with “My Dogsled is a Hybrid.” I had purchased the Little Northies pack, and it came with “How Great is Your Dane?” I would definitely recommend it…it is a really nice brown!

  3. Very pretty shades and that glitter at the end is amazing. I haven’t been able to pick any of these up yet, but I want to! Hope the polish helped you get through some of that anxiety and migraine.

  4. I find purple and blue polishes to be the biggest pain in the butt in regards to color accuracy in photos. It drives me insane! I love My Dogsled is a Hybrid! Lovely swatches!

  5. Beautiful swatches Jessica! I have picked up 4 of them as well (almost the same ones as you except instead of Can’t Afjord Not To, I got Viking in a Vinter Vonderland…which is amazeballs and I highly recommend it!). I’ve only worn Viking and Do You Have That Color in Stock-holm so far…and I agree, it is amazing and totally unique (and I have a LOT of purple cremes). The color is so vibrant, so of course it is impossible to get an accurate picture of. Oh purples…why does the camera hate you so?

  6. These are gorgeous! I need to pick up Stock-Holm. It’s so gorgeous! I have Norse also, and love love love it! (What’s the glitter food you are talking about? I’m gonna have to look that up!) I have the dark purple from this collection too, and love it.

  7. I really like all the shades you’ve shared but I have to say my fav is Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm?. Every time I see it I’m reminded that I needwant to buy it!

  8. To be honest the Nordic collection didn’t speak to me at all. However OPI Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm is really pretty, I have an inner love for blurples and I perfectly understand how impossible they are to photograph. I am quite curious about the dogsled comparison, too!
