OPI | Holiday 2018 The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Collection: Review and Swatches
Inspired by the magical world of the upcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms live-action movie from Disney, the OPI Holiday 2018 Collection celebrates all things sparkly and dreamy. With a wide range of jewel-tones and glitters, the collection is available now in stores. I've got full review and swatches of all 15 shades to share with you. To read on, click......

OPI Holiday 2018 | Lavendare to Find Courage:
This is a soft pastel orchid. The formulation is nicely pigmented but I needed a third coat on a few nails to ensure a completely even and opaque finish.
