Color, color, color! Dal Brasile, OPI!
They are just that: Colorful! These nail polishes are part of the Brazilian Collection by Opi, an American brand of the beauty giant Coty. Twelve new shades ranging from warm earth tones, orange, red. There's also a lovely green forest.
But how are they on the nails? To obtain a full, glossy color, as you see in the pics, it is important to use a good base, two coats (just one would be fine with stronger tones) and a nice top coat. Otherwise you risk to dilute the color effect.
Ho fatto un esperimento: usare una base bianca al posto delle classiche trasparenti, come facevano i pittori rinascimentali quando preparavano gli affreschi. Risultato incredibile: il colore esplode in tutta la sua luminosità :)
I did an experiment: I used a white base instead of the traditional transparent, like the painters when preparing Renaissance frescoes. Incredible result: The color exploded in all its brightness :)
