Swatches & review: OPI Gwen Stefani collection (Part 2)

Hi ladies! Last year, I shared with you some swatches of OPI's Gwen Stefani collection (which you can find here). I recently received the rest of the nail polishes in the mail and so here are my two cents on them and the collection as a whole :)


4 in the morning is a satin finish black crème. If you look closely, you can see that it has a fine silver shimmer, which I'm sure will come to life when a glossy top coat is added. I applied two coats for my swatch.

Hey baby is a classic hot pink polish. It's bright and pink, so definitely a new and unique addition to my purple/blue dominant stash haha! This was two coats.

I sing in color is a beautiful vampy red polish. So dark in fact, that it can pass for a black polish under dimmer lighting. I love the crelly formula in this, it gives it such a glossy and squishy look. Two coats.

Push & shove, the mysterious chrome of the collection! My photos honestly give it no justice, the silver is much more reflective in real life. I applied the base coat which came with it on my ring and index fingers before applying Push & shove. For my pinky and middle fingers, I simply applied the polish straight onto my bare nails.

I honestly don't see a great difference with using the base coat as it didn't do anything to hide my ridges. It definitely didn't help with wear time when I went to wear this as a full manicure without top coat either - the nail polish slowly faded off my nails as the day went on.

push & shove

Overall, this is a solid collection. Whilst they aren't terribly unique in terms of shades and finish (eeven the chrome has been done by other brands before), the colours are very Gwen. If you're after some staple shades, you will definitely find them in this collection.

Gwen Stefani by OPI is now available in David Jones and Myer stores. Each bottle retails for $19.95.

Are there any shades which interest you?

Thanks for reading.
