San Francisco Collection by OPI

San Francisco Collection by OPI Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

A little while ago, I purchased the Empire Box Launch Box and received the San Francisco Collection by OPI. I absolutely love OPI polishes; and their mini collections are totally adorable. I had been eyeballing the San Francisco collection for a little while, so I was pretty delighted to receive this collection.

The San Francisco Collection by OPI contains four lovely shades; First Date at the Golden Gate, Muir Muir On The Wall, In The Cable Car-Pool Lane, and Peace & Love & OPI. I was a little disappointed to see they didn't include any of the sand finish shades, but all in all I don't mind too much.

How cute are these mini bottles. At first glance, these shades don't look very special. The red shade is really the only stand-out shade to me. When swatched, however, they are definitely something special.

As you can see, when swatched, all shades appear to be very different and unique. My personal favourite is First Date at the Golden Gate; a gorgeously perfect red jelly shade. This shade was also the easiest to work with. 

Muir Muir On The Wall is a really nice winter shade, but was the shade I was least drawn to when I opened the collection. In sunlight however it becomes a pretty plum duochrome shade, which is rather nice. 

In The Cable Car-Pool Lane is such a gorgeous berry shade - it was a tad difficult to work with though as it applied a little patchy. It might be better with a full sized brush though.

 And last but not least, Peace & Love & OPI is a stunning grey duochrome. The formula was really easy to work with as well and applies beautifully. It's also a unique shade in my collection.

Overall I was pretty impressed with the shades that were included in this collection. Again, slight disappointment at no sand finishes being included, but I do adore the shades that were included. I haven't really seen much else about this collection, but there are definitely some gems included. 

Have you tried anything from the San Francisco Collection by OPI? If so, what shades have you tried? Which of these shades are your favourite?
