Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of those iconic, cult classic films that people love to watch over and over again. Yet, somehow in my 32 years of life, I’ve still never seen it. (*hides*) I know, I know… I’m crazy right? I have just never been one for older movies and the premise doesn’t appeal to me very much. So tell me, is it something I have to see or is it overrated?
OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection
Anyway, OPI has released a collection in honor of the film and it’s full of classy and shimmering shades that I suspect you would see in the movie. For the most part the formulas were very nice. I only had an issue with one of the shades, which was too bad because it looked so pretty in the bottle.
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S
Let’s start with the namesake shade shall we? Breakfast at Tiffany’s is an off white cream with subtle shimmer. This one dries to a satin finish, which is very pretty.
Five-and-Ten is a shimmering metallic silver. It is a thin formula, but I love that it leaves no visible drag lines. This is 2 coats, but it could have used one more.
I BELIEVE IN MANICURES
I Believe In Manicures is a light baby blue. Did you know that the iconic Tiffany Blue color is trademarked, so it can’t be duplicated? I didn’t until I heard it from Kelly at Vampy Varnish!
CHAMPAGNE FOR BREAKFAST
Champagne for Breakfast is a silver based multi-color holo glitter topper. It goes on fairly even and dries quickly to a gritty finish. Here, I used one coat over I Believe In Manicures, and sealed it with the OPI Infinite Shine top coat.
GOT THE MEAN REDS
Got the Mean Reds is a classic, cool toned red cream.
CAN’T READ WITHOUT MY LIPSTICK
Can’t Read Without My Lipstick is a vampy oxblood maroon.
MEET MY “DECORATOR”
Meet My “Decorator” is a warm orange-red cream. I love warm reds on me for some reason!
APARTMENT FOR TWO
Apartment for Two is a cool toned, medium pink.
Sunrise… Bedtime! is a pink based, multi-color glitter topper. The holo glitters in this one seem to sparkle a bit more than those in Champagne for Breakfast. This one also dries to a gritty finish, but I didn’t use a top coat in this swatch.
RICH & BRAZILIAN
Rich & Brazilian is a deep burgundy with fuchsia shimmer. This one is so gorgeous!
FIRE ESCAPE RENDEZVOUS
Fire Escape Rendezvous is a matte ruby red with hex glitter and chunky pieces. This was the let down in the bunch for me. The larger glitter pieces are just too chunky and it was hard to get them to spread out evenly on the nail. It looks slightly better with a top coat, but it’s still not my favorite.
BLACK DRESS NOT OPTIONAL
Black Dress Not Optional is a jet black with a fine gray shimmer. This is an easy black to wear, because the shimmer softens it up a bit.
All in all, this is a nice classic collection with a few fun colors mixed in. If you are a big fan of the movie I think that this collection would make a cool collectors item. Or a least a few of the colors! Some of my personal favorites are Rich & Brazilian, Meet My “Decorator”, I Believe In Manicures, Apartment For Two, and Sunrise… Bedtime! Each shade retails for $10 and you can find them at Sally Beauty, and your local Salons.
Do any of the shades in the OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection appeal to you? Are you a fan of the movie?
