I have been drooling over swatches of OPI’s Nordic Collection for fall/winter 2014 for quite some time now. There were a few polishes from the collection I wanted, but I kind of didn’t want to spend the $9.50 a bottle, especially since I tend to only use polishes a few times. (Bad polish addiction habit!)
Luckily, I happened to stumble across this set of 4 Nordic mini’s at Ulta and 3 of the 4 polishes included were ones that were on my wish list…score! The Little Northies set contains: My Dogsled is a Hybrid, Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?, My Voice is a Little Norse and How Great is Your Dane? (Click photos to enlarge)
My Dogsled is a Hybrid:
This is the most beautiful mint color! It took 2 coats to become opaque and I added a topcoat for extra glossiness. I then topped it with My Voice is a Little Norse which is a fine multi-colored (dominantly silver) glitter topcoat that is rough when it dries. However, you can add a topcoat to make is smooth and glossy which is equally as pretty!
Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?:
This was slightly difficult to capture on camera, but its a vivid purple with blue undertones. The formula was a little thin on this one, so I used 3 thin coats to get rid of patchy areas. I also used My Voice is a Little Norse as a decorative touch in the right hand photo.
How Great is Your Dane?:
I forgot to take pictures of this one on its own (oops!) so you can just see it decorated with My Voice is a Little Norse. Anyway, this is a cool toned light chocolate brown, and its actually very flattering. I really like this one with the top coat!
So, there you have it! I am actually very pleased with this little mini collection and each bottle contains enough polish for about 3 (or more) full manicures, depending on how long your nails are! 🙂 The set is $13.95 at Ulta, but don’t forget to use the $3.50 off coupon to get it for $10.45!
Do you like buying polish mini’s, or do you always spring for the full size?
