OPI 'Krona-Logical Order' from the Iceland Collection. This was also very difficult to accurately capture the color, as it wanted to come up as more of a almost black-chocolate instead of being more ashy. This is in direct sunlight, which pulled the color more accurately, but not my favorite lighting to use (it was my last resort when my light box failed me as well!). 😅This is pretty similar to two of the others in this collection, but still slightly different. I do love this color family for fall. I am tempted to stamp on some orange shimmer leaves!
This is worn with the OPi Infinite Shine base and topcoat.

Every now and again, you swatch a color that your camera just doesn't want to photograph properly 😅 After many retakes, I got one! This is OPI 'One Heckla of A Color' from the Iceland Collection. LOVED. THIS. PURPLE. I will be wearing this one again. 💜
This was 2 coats, and was worn with the OPI Infinite Shine top and bottom coat.

OPI Iceland 'This Isn't Greenland'. This is a beautiful muted neutral olive green. While I've loved this collection so far, the formula on this one was not great. It was nearly unswatchable, but I was able to make it work. I have not experienced this issue with any of the other colors, so I think it was just a bad batch.

I was excited to hear about the new BarePro launch, and very excited to be able to test it for BareMinerals- thank you for sending it to me! This foundation is advertised as a long lasting liquid foundation with a matte finish. It comes in a range of colors, suitable for most skin tones. I love the BareMinerals line, but prefer a more medium coverage liquid as opposed to a powder- which is why I was very excited to try this. The coverage is buildable, and it does last well (considering you prep and set it). I do have combo skin, and most matte formulas can tend to settle in drier areas quite quick. This foundation did do this, but like the others, I was able to fix it by adding some face oil. The application and finish was much better once the oil was added. I am using the @nuxe_us Dry Oil, which is amazing. I add 1 drop to every pump (I usually use 2 pumps for medium coverage). I do not have to set with too much powder, as it does change texture on its own pretty easy. I set my under eyes and T zone to help prevent creasing. I apply it with my beauty blender- I have tried the silisponge but do not recommend that. Application with a brush is ok, but not as smooth as opposed to a beauty blender. I moisturize (@tartecosmetics Brightening Moisturizer) and prime (@temptu Primer) prior to applying the foundation.
All in all, I am pleased with this foundation. I loved the natural finish, and felt I got good (but still natural) coverage. Above all, I love that they have a shade in my skin tone (aka ultra pale- which is very hard for me to find). While it did need some help with the oil, this is not uncommon with matte foundations, and not a big deal for me for me. Thanks again, BareMinerals and Influenster!

For the base colors, I used OPI Iceland 'This is what friends are Thor' and 'Icelanded a Bottle of OPI'. Flowers are OPI Iceland 'Aurora Berry-alis' and 'I'll have a Gin and Tetonic'. Leaves are Zoya 'Shawn' and OPI Iceland 'This isn't Greenland'. This was topped with OPI infinite Shine topcoat (the base coat was used as well). For color specific swatches of these colors, please refer to the swatches posted earlier on my page. 🌸

OPI Iceland Collection 'Suzi & The Arctic Fox'. This is a very, very dark purple that only has a hint of a purple hue. While the formula on this was a little more difficult to work with, it still gave a wonderful finish and shine. All in all, I do think I will be wearing this color more than once this fall!

Next up is OPI Iceland's 'I'll Have a Gin and Tetonic'. It is a gorgeous light salmon/peach pink. Like all the others, very opaque and incredibly shiny. It is gorgeous on its own, but I couldn't help dressing it up a little. This line is incredibly easy to work with! I also used the OPI Infinite Shine Base Coat and Top Coat.

I know it is not winter, but I really like this combination!
Both Polishes are from the OPI Iceland Collection. The base is 'Icelanded a Bottle of OPI' and the snowflake is 'Less is Norse'. The base is a very warm neutral, with grey undertones. The color changes drastically in different lighting (as warm+cool toned neutrals so), so I posted 2 pics to show the color in different lighting. The blue used on the stamp is a very deep navy blue. I will be posting a full swatch of the color soon! This look was put over the OPI Infinite Shine base coat, and topped with the OPI Infinite Shine Top Coat. Like the rest of the collection, both colors are incredible pigmented (which make them all fantastic stamping polishes).

This is OPI 'Aurora Berry-Alis' from the OPI Iceland Collection. It is a gorgeous berry pink, and like the last, is very pigmented. I used 2 coats, but it really is opaque in 1. The shine and texture is very similar to a gel polish, which I love. I used OPI infinite Shine base coat and topcoat for this.

OPI Iceland 'That's What Friends Are Thor'
Everyone who knows me, knows that Thor is my favorite, so it was easy to pick which polish was to be first. 😉
I am usually not fond of brown polish, however, I really liked this one. It was very rich, but with an ashy grey undertone. It is a perfect fall shade, and I will definitely be wearing it again. The formula is amazing- very pigmented and incredibly shiny.
