OPI Best of the Best - They're the Best!

Hai, my name's Sue & I'm a polishaholic. What? You're not shocked? Well, here's something that may shock you, I didn't have one single polish from this Best of the Best collection. I know, right?

Seeing Millies.ie advertise this bad boy on Facebook though, I knew it was time to act. #operationshutyerpursehole was suspended and I got to ordering. (Sorry, Girls). Fancy a looksie at some of the most beautiful and lusted after shades that OPI have ever produced? Course you do.

Alpine Snow is the only white that I've ever achieved full opacity in one swish. Perfect for nail art ventures or simple white nails, if Tippex is your thang.

Bubble Bath is an almost translucent pink, for days when you want a more subtle look.

Tickle My Francey is a beautiful pink undertoned nude and has shot into my top ten polishes. Love.

Strawberry Margarita is a bright fuchsia pink, creamy and beautiful. A perfect Summer shade.

Cajun Shrimp is another instant favourite. A bright pinky coral with stunning colour pay off. It reminds me a lot of Sally Hansen's Kook a Mango. 

Big Apple Red, while bright and bold is still on the translucent side. I'm really, really liking it.

I'm Not Really a Waitress, HELLO Crimbo nails! Just.. just look at it!

You Don't Know Jacques!  is what my mother would call Muckidy Dunn Brown, the colour of a mouse's diddy but in a good way. It's a perfect office colour. 

Russian Navy is probably one of OPIs best sellers of all time, it's a dusky navy purple duochrome that's stunning worn over a black or blue base.

Lincoln Park After Dark is another cult favourite polish and this picture in no way does it justice. It's a deep navy with burgundy undertones. Sophisticated and so, so wearable. 

The set can actually be split in two for double gift giving potential!

I picked this up from Millies.ie for €24.50 and paid €3 postage, which only took 2 days. I have, however, seen it across on beautyemporium.ie for €23 with only €2 postage and their delivery is lightening fast too. Either way you're paying, on average, €2.35 per bottle of gorgeousness. I'd genuinely recommend these as a gift or, indeed, a self gift. I had intended to share 'em with D'Mammy, that was before swatching. Say NOTHING!

What do we think? Any colours catching your eye?

I really like the look of Russian Navy! Fab colour! :)

I would buy a nail polish called "Mouse's Diddy" - in tears laughing, these all look gorgeous - double gifting my eye, double the opening pleasure more like!

I saw this up the norf and was very restrained but now that I've seen the swatches, I'm wanting it again, esp the Mouse's Diddy one heheeheh
