OPI Oz The Great and Powerful Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to show you these awesome polishes from OPI inspired by the movie Oz the Great and Powerful!



Don’t Burst My Bubble
Don’t wake me...I’m dreaming about puffy clouds of white.



Don't Burst my Bubble is a sheer white creme.  The formula was easy to apply, but does take a bit of finesse since it's a sheer.
Shown is three coats of Don't Burst My Bubble.



Which is Witch?
Is this silver glitter with iridescent sparkle or the other way around?



Which is Witch is a clear coat loaded with silver holographic hexes, fibers, and micro glitters.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I really didn't think this one would wow me when I first saw it, but I absolutely adore it!  It's so delicate that it seems like you have twinkling lights on your nails!

Glints of Glinda
Only a good witch could turn beige from meek to chic.



Glints of Glinda is a sheer beige creme.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is three coats of Glints of Glinda.



When Monkeys Fly! 
I’m simply bananas for this gold confetti. 



When Monkeys Fly! is a clear coat with large gold hexes and silver holographic mini and micro hexes. The formula was smooth, but the glitters were rather reluctant to come out of the bottle.  As you may notice, the large gold glitters have taco-ed slightly.  This has been addressed by OPI on their Facebook page here.



I Theodora You
 This adorable, sheer pink is bewitching on you.



I Theodora You is a sheer pale pink creme.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is three coats of I Theodora You.



Lights of Emerald City
White confetti adds city girl flair and style to nails.



Lights of Emerald City is a clear coat with white satin squares and iridescent squares.  The formula was easy to apply and the glitters were relatively easy to work with.  This was another one that surprised me.  The strength of the iridescent squares is really dazzling.

What Wizardry is This?


What Wizardry is This? is another liquid sand creation, however it does have a richer texture that the previously released shades.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply.
Shown is two coats of What Wizardry is This?.


I also wanted to show you What Wizardry is This? with a top coat.  I was very surprised to see that, after applying my top coat, some shimmering hints of deep emerald emerged.  


Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this collection.  However, the majority of these polishes seem like they belong with last year's NYC Ballet collection.  I was really hoping to see some much bolder shades, as opposed to these pale nudes ... because is there's one thing Oz isn't, it's pale.

I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
