OPI Brazil Collection For Spring/Summer 2014 Review

While these chilly temperatures sure aren't alluding to spring being anywhere in the forecast that definitely doesn't mean you can't indulge in a pop of color! OPI has introduced an array of colors in honor of Brazil for spring/summer. The collection consists of 12 shades ranging from brights to neutrals, alongside the collection there's a mini set of 4 liquid sand polishes to get your nails beach ready!

Next Stop…The Bikini Zone
This amethyst-toned pewter suits me just fine.

Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around
Nobody can stop me from wearing this creamy nude!

Taupe-less Beach
There’s nothing optional about wearing this enticing taupe.

I São Paulo Over There
He was sipping coffee with this mocha-toned beauty.

OPI Scores a Goal!
Make your point in this winning shade of rich chocolate.

I’m making the switch to this deep jungle green.

I Just Can’t Cope-acabana
Nothing lifts your spirits like this sunshine yellow.

Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?
He went to fetch her this delicious mango smoothie.

Toucan Do It If You Try
You have talent to achieve anything in this confident orange.

Kiss Me I’m Brazilian
Plant this warm luscious pink on me!

This vibrant and festive coral is the life of the party.

Red Hot Rio
A ruby red as hot as the most exciting city in Brazil.

Brazil Beach Sandies Liquid Sand mini's

Samba-dy Loves Purple
Well, who wouldn’t find this vivid textured violet irresistible?

I’m Brazil Nuts Over You
And I’m crazy for this textured matte pink.

What’s a Little Rain Forest?
I’ve got this textured matte blue and an umbrella for two.

You’re So Flippy Floppy
When I found this bright textured yellow, I just flipped!

Glow: I think I actually love the entire collection! Stand out shades for me are definitely the corals and mangos including Toucan Do It If You Try and Live.Love.Carnaval. I like the versatility of going from fun to work appropriate hues. 

Glare: The only thing I'm on the fence about is whether or not I'm a fan of the whole liquid sand trend. The finish of the sandies is gorgeous but there's just something inside of me that prefers something a bit more smooth. 

Would I Recommend It? Yes! The color palette of this collection is gorgeous!

Where To Buy: The Brazil Collection is currently available at various retailers nationwide. They retail for about $8.50-$9 each. To purchase, learn more or to locate a retailer near you please visit www.opi.com.

Kelly Rowland Named as the NEW Celebrity Fabulista for Caress!

Can you say flawless? Caress announced the beautiful Kelly Rowland as their new spokesmodel and celebrity Fabulista! I absolutely adore Kelly and I love how she's continuing to pave her way in such a positive light.

Kelly is excited to inspire women to enjoy every day experiences in a fresh way. She knows how important it is to start every morning feeling fabulous, which is why she uses the new Caress Fresh Body Wash Collection (her favorite being the Emerald Rush.) I've personally used Caress for years, I especially love their body wash and I look forward to what's to come from this new campaign!
