OPI Grease (Part) Collection - Swatches & Review

Friday, 20 July 2018

Happy Friday everyone!  I am excited for this weekend.  It's going to be busy but lots of fun.  My daughter has been invited to three birthday parties plus has her usual gymnastics training.  I imagine she is going to be pretty tired come next week.  Anyway, I'm sure you didn't come by to hear about my plans for this weekend - instead you are here to see the latest OPI Grease Collection.  Yes I am aware that the Grease Collection has been out for quite sometime in the US (and you guys have also got another new collection already) but the Grease Collection was only recently released here in Australia.  I was sent eleven of the twelve polishes to share with you.

Chills Are Multiplying is a royal blue with blue shimmer.  This is such a nice rich colour.  The formula is great and it is opaque in two coats.

Danny & Sandy 4 Ever! is a charcoal shimmer.  This is a nice colour.  I did find the formula a little sheer but it is easy to work with.  I used two coats for my swatch, however it is still quite see through at the tips so next time I would do three coats.

Don't Cry Over Spilled Milkshakes is an off white cream.  This one is kinda an odd colour if you ask me.  It's a little too yellow to be white, and too white to be a yellow.  It's definitely more yellow toned in person than it looks in my picture.  I'm really not sure I am a fan of the colour.  My swatch shows two coats.

Frenchie Likes To Kiss is a pale lavender with a purple shimmer.  The shimmer is quite obvious in the bottle, however it really doesn't transfer to the nails.  It is barely noticeable at all so that is disappointing.  The formula does apply unevenly and needed three coats to even out.

Hopelessly Devoted To OPI is a light peach creme.  I think this is a nice peach colour, however I am not sure it agrees with my skin toned.  It does apply unevenly on the first coat but evens out on the second coat.

Meet A Boy Cute As Can Be is a pale yellow creme.  Really nice colour.  The formula does apply unevenly (which is to be expected for such a light shade).  I used three coats for my swatch.

Pink Ladies Rule The School is a muted pink creme.  I don't love this shade of pink, but I also don't hate it.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

Summer Lovin' Having A Blast is an orange creme.  This is the perfect orange for Halloween.  Don't ask me why but it gives me Halloween vibes.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Tell Me About It Stud is a bright red.  I'm not really a fan of red polishes but I can appreciate this polish in this collection.  The formula applies evenly and is easy to use.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Was It All Just A Dream is a muted turquoise creme.  I'm so undecided about this shade on me.  When I swatches it I wasn't loving it, however I did some nail art with it (which I wore for 24 hours) and it really grew on me.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

You're The Shade I Want is a raspberry pink creme.  Now this is more my colour.  I think it's really pretty and the formula is great.  My swatch shows two coats.

I really wanted to love this collection, however it was a little underwhelming.  I don't think that a lot of the shades agree with my skin tone and the shades aren't overly unique or exciting.  What do you think of the Grease Collection?


  1. Not exciting but it when I see it used in nail art then it appeals to me!!

    1. I can totally understand that. I find a lot of polishes these days I look at more in terms of nail art than wearing as a full mani.
