Swatches & review: OPI Gwen Stefani collection (Part 1)

Hi ladies. Today, I have the distinct pleasure to share with you some of the nail polishes included in OPI's Gwen Stefani collection. (Check out part 2 here.)


First up, I have Love. Angel. Music. Baby. This is a satin gold with a little silver shimmer flecks. I applied two coats and it still looks a little thin on some nails, so it definitely would have benefited from a third coat.

Here it is with a glossy top coat over it. The photo doesn't show a great difference, but the glossy nature is more apparent in real life.

Next is Over & over a-Gwen, a medium red shade which totally screams Gwen! Two easy and opaque coats, but beware this one may stain if you don't wear a base coat. I only had this on for a short time while swatching, but my nails were left with a red tint after I removed it.

Finally, here is In true Stefani style, a pretty silver glitter concoction made up of square shaped glitter pieces mixed with smaller holographic pieces. I layered one coat over Over & over a-Gwen.

The Gwen Stefani collection will be hitting stores in January 2014. Australian ladies can find them in David Jones and selected salons. Myer will also be stocking the collection later in the season. Each bottle retails for $19.95.

Are you excited for this collection? What shades do you think you may have to get? ;)

Thanks for reading!

  1. Love. Angel. Music. Baby. is really pretty!! And the red is gorgeous too, although probably easily dupable.

  3. I was definitely surprised that I didn't mind the look of LAMB against my skin tone! And the red is definitely dupeable, but you can't not have a red in a Gwen collection ;)

  5. You're most welcome Claire! The glitter is definitely pretty and I'm starting to love the satin finish more. Hope this collection won't be too bad for your wallet ;)
