OPI | Holiday 2022 Jewel Be Bold Collection: Review and Swatches
Like it or not, October is here which means that we are going to start seeing the release of holiday collections. OPI is first out of the gate with their new Holiday 2022 Jewel Be Bold Collection. Offering a wide array of shimmery, glitzy shades, the collection is themed around opulent, colorful gems. To see my review and swatches of the full collection, click......

Rhinestone Red-y:
This is a bright red packed with pink pearlescent shimmers. The red base has a slightly translucent quality but the formulation is still very pigmented and easy to apply. I used two coats below for a nice and even finish.

Pink, Bling and Be Merry:
A pretty Barbie pink, this shade is scattered with fine iridescent pink gold shimmers. The formulation is slightly sheer, but I was able to get away with two coats for an even and opaque finish.

Charmed, I'm Sure:
This is a very sheer fuchsia purple with a fine shimmery finish. I needed three coats for a full coverage.

Feelin' Berry Glam:
The only cream finish of the entire collection, Feelin' Berry Glam is a rich plummy purple. The formulation is very rich and pigmented.

I Pink It's Snowing:
A translucent pink packed with large, medium, and small hexagonal silver glitters, I Pink It's Snowing is fairly easy to apply. I used two coats for the swatches below. Be mindful that this shade takes a bit longer to dry.

Snow Holding Back:
This is a sheer iridescent white with a bit of that ever-so-popular glazed donut effect. The formulation is smooth and even, I used two coats for the swatches below but you can probably use just one for a sheerer finish.

Merry & Ice:
An icy pink scattered with iridescent shimmers, Merry & Ice is unfortunately quite patchy. I needed three coats for an even finish.

Sleigh Bells Bling:
This is a soft metallic gold. The formulation is decently pigmented and the application was non-streaky. I used two to three coats for the swatches below.

Pop the Baubles:
This is a glitter topper packed with large silver hexagon glitters and medium gold hexagon glitters suspended in a clear base. The application is pretty sparse. I used it over Sleigh Bells Bling in the swatches below and as you can see, even two coats provide only a light scattering of glitters. Additionally, the formulation dries pretty slowly so I do not recommend it.

Go Big or Go Chrome:
The silver counterpart of Sleigh Bells Bling, Go Big or Go Chrome is a pale shimmery silver. The formulation is decently pigmented, I used two to three coats for a mostly even and opaque finish.

The Pearl of Your Dreams:
This is a very unique pale baby blue packed with iridescent shimmer flakes. The formulation is a tad uneven so I needed three coats for a full coverage.

Decked to the Pines:
One of my favorites out of the bunch, Decked to the Pines is a gorgeous metallic sage green with a hint of golden duo-chrome. The formulation is decently pigmented and non-streaky.

Tealing Festive:
Another favorite of mine is this stunning shimmery dark blue. The formulation is insanely pigmented. I used two coats below but you can probably get away with just one.

Bring Out the Big Gems:
This is a deep chocolate brown with an evening scattering of bronze shimmers. The formulation is rich and even, two coats for a full coverage.

OPI'm a Gem:
Last but not least is this fun, galaxy-inspired glitter. With a translucent black base, OPI'm a Gem is packed with blue shimmers and silver hexagonal glitters of various sizes. Unfortunately, the formulation is a touch sheer so I needed three coats for a full, dramatic coverage, which significantly delay the drying time.
