OPI Holiday 2018 The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Swatch and Review

OPI HOLIDAY 2018 THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS

Hi friends, welcome back! I've got swatches and my review for the OPI Holiday 2018 collection, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. 

This collection consists of 7 cremes and a mix up of 5 other fun finishes. Along with the standard 12 piece collection, they have 3 bonus nail polishes - glitter toppers!

Let's get onto the swatches!

-----

OPI - Envy The Adventure

Envy The Adventure is a bright bold and beautiful forest green creme.

My swatch of Envy The Adventure is shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat.

OPI - March In Uniform

March In Uniform is a vampy purple creme.

My swatch of March In Uniform is shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat. When I first saw this one, I couldn't figure out if it was purple or blue. As per the description from the direct listing on the OPI website, it is stated to in fact be purple. It seems to be coming off a bit more so on the blue side in my swatch photo, however in person the purple is more visible. I would classify this as blurple, which is when something looks both purple and blue.

My swatch of Toying With Trouble is shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat.

OPI - Dreams Need Clara-fication

Dreams Need Clara-fication is a bright pastel blue creme.

My swatch of Dreams Need Clara-fication is shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat. This one to me in person gives me periwinkle vibes, super pretty and perfect for winter!

OPI - Dazzling Dew Drops

Dazzling Dew Drops is a metallic yellow leaning gold.

My swatches of Dazzling Dew Drops are shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat. I could easily see this working in 2 coats for those who have no visible nail line. In my case I do, so 3 it was.

My swatches of Dancing Keeps Me On My Toes are shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat.  I did notice with the 3 coats, I still had slight visible nail line.

OPI - Tinker, Thinker, Winker?

Tinker, Thinker, Winker? is a twinkling holographic.

My swatches of Tinker, Thinker, Winker? are shown in 3 coats, paired with top coat. The holographic flakes in this are insane and twinkle so nicely. It is versatile in the sense of being able to wear it on its own and can be used as a topper. Usually when I try and use nail polishes that aren't meant to be toppers, it can get kinda wonky in some areas - not this one!

OPI - Black to Reality

Black to Reality is a blackened base shimmering vampy red.

My swatches of Black to Reality are shown in 2 coats, paired with top coat. This one is such a standout shade when it comes to my personal taste and find it so sexy! I never thought a nail polish could actually be sexy, but this is all kinda of vampy fun and I love it!

Now that we've gone through the mains of this collection, let's get into the 3 bonus shades - the glitter toppers! Heads up, these glitter toppers are pretty awesome. They offer great coverage and you don't have to go glitter fishing to get an even disbursement of glitter overtop the nail.

My swatches of Gold Key to the Kingdom are shown in 1 coat overtop Envy the Adventure. It features mainly gold hex glitter with a mix up of silver and white glitters.
