It’s been a while since we had a plain and simple swatch post! So today we’re keeping it short and sweet and taking a look at the gorgeous OPI First Class Desires from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection.
I wasn’t really feeling this collection when it first came out, which meant that when I picked up First Class Desires it was from the sale bin. And (I know I say this a lot with untrieds, but…) I’m really glad I did! In the bottle it looked like a deep purple with scattered gold glitter, but in person it’s so much more. Just look at this macro…
Not just glitters, those are tiny flakies! Ahhhh! And flakies are one of my weaknesses! There is obviously gold in the glittery flakies but there’s a hint of greens and golds and coppers and pinks in the right light… I can’t tell if the flakies have a hint of iridescent multichrome in them or if that’s just the result of the slightly crelly-ish base, but either way the results is gorgeous.
This polish also had great coverage – pictured here is two coats without top coat. I’m thinking this is one I want to try stamping with in the future!
Overall super happy with this purchase (as though you couldn’t tell haha). It’s amazing how macros can change your perspective of a polish in a blink! So happy!
