The other similar shades on this wheel are all Polish brands … lately I’ve had a *thing* for neutrals a la the three OPI Brazilians and have found the easiest way to deal with my already vast collection of variations on Bossa Nova, Taupeless and Sao Paulo is to divvy them up by country of origin, lol.

This method still doesn’t prevent me from fruitlessly hankering after the following *true* Brazilians:

Ana Hickmann Coffee Shop
Anita Café com Leite
Finaflor Amarula
Hits Speciallita Pop Up Store Filippa
Top Beauty Bandida, Lencol de Seda, Pacoca

Collections: OPI California Dreaming, Part I

Here are 8 of the 10 that I bought (with high hopes since last year :/) of the 12 which comprise this collection.

Two have gone missing since these were purchased back in mid-April 2017 — GPS and Mouse House.

I never use GPS, nor do I ever set foot at Disneyland.

When initially received, I was disappointed and planned to get rid of all of them, but had a recent change of heart after going to a beauty supply for the China Glaze My Little Ponies and seeing how attractive and appealing the OPI California Dreaming display looked in person.

Now I might consider adding Carmel and even Yosemite to complete the collection, if I can find them later on at a discounter.

Meanwhile, I trekked over to the varnish warehouse and unearthed what you see below, but GPS and Mouse House must have been left behind. So they’ll comprise Part II, whenever I find them …

Feeling Frisco; Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia; Excuse Me, Big Sur

Time for a Napa; Malibu Pier Pressure; This is Not Whine Country

These three are turned around since Malibu Pier Pressure’s pigments have separated in front and I couldn’t get them to mix for the camera …

Santa Monica Beach Peach; Me, Myselfie & I

Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon, I was wishing and yearning for August to arrive very soon in order to get my hands on this:

Chanel Le Vernis – Horizon Line

(Uploaded from beautyalmanac; unsure if image belongs to them or to Chanel)

I’ve also maintained an interest in Monochrome and Garconne, but it must not be active since as of yesterday, they haven’t found their way into my collection.

Then, as yesterday turned into last night, I tripped and fell over stacks of varnish boxes in my bedroom, knocking over a table of even more loose varnishes in trays. Those varnishes, in turn, went flying and fell onto a supercute tartan plaid train case in the shape of a hatbox, where all my Zoyas were cohabitating.

Whilst attempting to salvage the traincase from several spilled bottles of OPI that had landed and broken on top of it, I thought I’d better take a gander at the Zoya content inside …

And that’s when, after cleaning and organizing my Zoya collection by tone/shade, I discovered these.

Jacqueline, Charlotte, Ireland, Dree

Cho, Farah, Misty, Charli

So chic, yet edgy!

Perhaps I’ll pass on Chanel after all, thus continuing in my effort to purchase only cruelty-free when possible 🙂
