OPI Brights 2015

I remember when the first OPI Brights collection launched in 2005. I ran to my local Trade Secret to snag as many of the bold, summer shades as possible. I still have at least half of them in my collection, and the same goes for the Brights that have come out since; Bright Pair, Brighter By The Dozen, Mod About Brights etc. It’s one of the recurring collections I most look forward to and the OPI Brights 2015 collection is no exception. Keep reading to see if it lived up to my expectations.

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colors of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

A-England Elizabeth & Mary

Because I refuse to grow up, my DVR looks like it was programmed by a teen. The CW has my number and one of my fave shows is Reign, a fictionalized account of the early years of Mary, Queen of Scots.
