OPI San Francisco Collection For Fall Review + Swatches

I honestly can't believe that Fall is actually here. This year went by sooo fast! Fall & Winter are definitely two of my favorite seasons and what I look forward to the most are the sultry colors that go along with it. OPI has geared up a new collection inspired by the season and the city of San Francisco. The Fall/Winter collection consists of 15 limited edition nail lacquers with a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns all inspired by some of the city's most iconic elements. The collection also includes 3 liquid sand textured colors with matte finishes. Check out swatches of the entire collection and my full thoughts below. 

A-Piers to Be Tan
I shore do like this chocolaty tan.

Dining al Frisco
Just feast your eyes on this fresh-air blue!

Haven’t the Foggiest
Can’t tell you why I love this misty gray...I just do!

Peace & Love & OPI
This holographic sage and eggplant is far out!

Keeping Suzi at Bay
There’s no holding back this assertive navy blue.

Incognito in Sausalito
You better keep this almost-black blue under wraps.

Lost on Lombard
Oh garn-et! I’m all turned around!

I Knead Sour-Dough
Are you bready to wear this toasty warm brown?

Muir Muir on the Wall
This trailblazing plum is the fairest of all.

In the Cable Car-Pool Lane
Good golly, Miss Trolley, this rich burgundy takes me away!

Embarca-Dare Ya!
Betcha can’t pass up this marvelous magenta.

First Date at the Golden Gate
You and me and this shimmery ruby make three.

It’s All San Andreas’s Fault
I’d move mountains to get this textured earthy taupe!

Wharf! Wharf! Wharf!
Dog-gone it...fetch me that textured matte blue!

There’s no escaping this arresting textured gray.

Glow: Although I do feel like a few of these shades are dupable from some of OPI's previous collections, I must say that as a whole I am pleasantly surprised. I love the subtle array of deep color, especially with the plums and reds.

Glare: I'm still on the fence of how I truly feel about the liquid sand textures. While I am a fan of the more glittered ones, the plain ones like the ones in this collection are a bit underwhelming. 

Would I Recommend It? I like it, and I think the overall collection works. I think colors like Incognito in Sausalito and In the Cable Car-Pool Lane are definite must haves in any Fall arsenal. 

Where To Buy: The entire San Francisco collection is currently available in various retailers nationwide. To purchase or to learn more please visit http://www.opi.com/.
