OPI nail polish ICELAND swatches Fall 2017 Collection

OPI has an Iceland themed collection coming out for Fall 2017. It's a collection with loads of dark, saturated, pretty much standard Fall colors. It's what I expect from an OPI Fall collection and what pretty much all the clients at the salon expect as well, so I know these colors will sell well. After all the years I've had the salon, OPI is still the benchmark for what the clients gravitate towards in terms of seasonal colors and how the collections are put together.

That being said, I do think the two browns in the OPI Iceland collection are too simmilar and the warm/cool undertones alone don't justify putting them both in the same collection.

The swatches of the OPI Iceland collection are here.

As I always do, I'll get a couple sets of the whole collection (the displays always get a lot of attention) with about 6 backup bottles of the colors I predict will be most loved by the clients. The backup bottles will be in colors:

OPI I’ll Have a Gin & Tectonic
OPI Aurora Berry-alis
OPI Icelanded a Bottle of OPI
OPI One Heckla of a Color!
OPI Less is Norse

As for my personal collection, I'll go for OPI Check Out The Old Geysirs and OPI Less is Norse since I know I'll get tons of wear out of both.

The swatches for Chanel New Dawn are here.

The swatches for Chanel Horizon Line are here.

Both colors are quite light for a late Fall collection. I know people like bolder, darker colors for the season but personally I always appreciate a new approach and honestly, I'll be getting my dark and jewel tones from a bunch of companies, I don't need the same thing form everyone and I really like the look of these. They have a very fresh, clean tone to them which is all I've been craving this summer so looking at them in August I just want to wear them now.

I hope you enjoyed my Chanel Fall 2017 Travel Diary collection swatches and review!

Picture swatches and comparisons of the Zoya Charming Spring 2017 Collection are here.

Most of these colors are super spring-y and seasonal but I'd throw out Millie from the set and replace it with a cafe au lait type shade.

If you can't get Zoya easily or if you get frustrated that Zoya does all these awesome deals for USA people only, look through your good old Essence stand next time you're at the drugstore and you'll find dupes for the top three colors easily.

I hope you enjoyed my Zoya Charming Spring 2017 Collection swatches, comparison and dupes post and I'll talk to you soon!
