OPI Holiday 2016 Breakfast at Tiffany's Collection: Review and Swatches
Arguably one of the most fashionable films of all time, Breakfast at Tiffany's has no doubt inspired generations of Holly Golightly wannabes over the years. So it's about time that OPI has curated a special collection with 18 beautiful shades (six of which are OPI Infinite Shines) that capture the elegant and playful spirit of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. Today I have swatches for the full collection on the blog. To see some close-ups and my reviews of each shade, click.......

I Believe in Manicures:
A baby sky blue cream, I Believe in Manicures is smooth but slightly patchy. I used three thin coats for the swatches below.

I Believe in Manicures, three coats with no top coat.
Five-and-Ten:
A sparse pearl shimmer filled with iridescent sparkles, Five-and-Ten is quite sheer. It's buildable to a decent coverage if you want to wear it on its own but I decided to pair it with I Believe in Manicures for a wintery frosty effect.

Five-and-Ten, one coat over I Believe in Manicures with no top coat.
Breakfast at Tiffany's:
One of the two mattes in this collection, Breakfast at Tiffany's is a pearly cream with fine iridescent flecks. The formulation is slightly patchy so I had to use three coats for the swatches below.

Champagne for Breakfast:
This is a clear polish scattered with fine silver sparkles and holographic glitters. The glitter distribution is pretty sparse so you will only get a fine dusting. Below is one coat over Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Black Dress Not Optional:
A deep granite with super fine micro-shimmers, Black Dress Not Optional has a surprisingly sheer formulation given how dark the polish is. The texture is smooth and easy to work with but I had to apply three coats for an opaque finish.

Apartment for Two:
This is a simple bright pink cream. The formulation is pigmented and smooth; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Apartment for Two, two coats with no top coat.
Rich & Brazilian:
Hands down my favorite polish out of this collection, Rich & Brazilian is a deep purple packed with multi-colored glitter specks. The formulation is perfect as it's well-pigmented, smooth, and super easy to apply.

Rich & Brazilian, two coats with no top coat.
Sunrise...Bedtime!:
An intense pink holographic glitter, Sunrise...Bedtime! is packed to the brim with glitters. The polish can be worn on its own but you'd have to use at least three coats for a decent coverage. I instead paired it with Rich & Brazilian for the swatches below. The polish dries to a slightly gritty texture so a top coat is needed for a smoother finish.

Sunrise...Bedtime!, one coat over Rich & Brazilian with no top coat.
Meet My "Decorator":
This is a simple orange-red with an amazing formulation. The polish is very pigmented and smooth; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Meet My "Decorator", two coats with no top coat.
Got the Mean Reds:
A classic true red, Got the Mean Reds is very rich and pigmented. This was almost a one-coater but I used two coats just in case.

Got the Mean Reds, one to two coats with no top coat.
Fire Escape Rendezvous:
Hands down the most interesting shade out of the bunch, Fire Escape Rendezvous is a matte red shimmer filled with small hexagon glitters and irregularly-cut "glass shard" flecks. Unfortunately, the polish looks a bit too messy on the nails. I had to use three coats on a few nails, which made things even chunkier.

Fire Escape Rendezvous, two to three coats with no top coat.
Can't Read Without My Lipstick:
A dark oxblood cream, Can't Read Without My Lipstick is slightly runny, making the application a bit tricky. The formulation is reasonably pigmented but I needed three coats on a few nails.

Can't Read Without My Lipstick, two coats with no top coat.
I Believe in Manicures (Infinite Shine):
Despite sharing the same name as the "I Believe in Manicures" shade in the original OPI formulation, this Infinite Shine version is slightly lighter in comparison. Additionally, the formulation is more pigmented but runnier. I personally prefer the original, non-Infinite Shine version but this is still a very nice blue.

I Believe in Manicures (Infinite Shine), two coats with no top coat.
Girls Love Pearls (Infinite Shine):
A bright pearl frost, Girls Love Pearls is nicely pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below. The finish is slightly streaky but the coverage is good.

Girls Love Pearls (Infinite Shine), two coats with no top coat.
I'll Have a Manhattan (Infinite Shine):
This is a deep purple cream. The formulation is pigmented and smooth; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Can't Tame a Wild Thing (Infinite Shine):
A bright orange-red, Can't Tame a Wild Thing is similar to Meet My "Decorator". However, this shade has a much more translucent finish. Interestingly, the formulation is still very pigmented; I used two coats for the swatches below.
