Nothing to DiscloseHello lovely readers! Today I'm reviewing 6 polishes from the New Orleans 2016 collection by OPI.
New Orleans is one of several collections released by OPI in Spring 2016. It is comprised of 8 cremes and 4 shimmers. Today I'm reviewing 3 shimmers (Show Us Your Tips, Let Me Bayou a Drink, and Humidity-Tea) and 3 cremes (Spare me a French Quarter, She's a Bad Muffuletta, and I'm Sooo Swamped!).
All 3 shimmers had a very consistent formula, which unfortunately was not of my liking. The shimmer makes the polish a bit thick, resulting in a patchy application. It is best to give ample time in between coats, otherwise you will overwork the polish as you try to end up with leveled coats. On the other hand, all 3 cremes self-leveled and were opaque in just 2 coats.
Now let's take a look at the polishes, shall we?
Show Us Your TipsThis polish is a periwinkle shimmer. Shown are 3 coats plus top coat.

Let Me Bayou a DrinkThis polish is a crisp, powdery pink shimmer. I love this classy shade and I think it looks great on its own or on a traditional French manicure. The shimmer in this one is very subtle and impossible to capture with my camera. Shown are 3 coats plus top coat.

Humidity-TeaThis polish is a bronze nude shimmer. This is the type of shade that looks gorgeous against tanned skin. Shown below are 3 coats plus top coat.
