Sephora by OPI Indian Summer Collection for Summer 2012

Today were taking a quick trip to Mumbai or at least it feels like it with the new Sephora by OPI Indian Summer Collection ($9.50 USD / $12 CAD each)! These breathtaking jewel tones are inspired by the bold, colourful hues of India. The names also play up on the Indian theme, as do all Sephora by OPI shades (every OPI shade in general is really a pun of some sort). I have four out of the collection, six beautiful shades in total (the remaining two are What Aura Gonna Wear? and Paisley Attention To Me, see them all here.)

Sephora by OPI is usually a fairly good and consistent formula, however Ive never been much of a fan of the packaging. In particular, the brushes I find to be too large for my petite fingers. I have to pay extra attention to the process, and I usually end up cleaning up more than usual. The polishes are usually quite pigmented, usually requiring 2 coats (3 if its a glitter polish) for complete coverage. They wear about 4-5 days without chipping (with a top coat) and best of all come in a wide variety of shades and textures.

The four shades that I have been dazzling my tips with lately are:
Looks Like Rain, Dear: A light, yellow gold with large and fine chunks of glitter. I really love this shade, but its a little much for all the nails. Its also too opaque to really wear on top of another shade but not quite opaque enough to pass with 2 coats. Its really pretty and reminds me of sand a bit. Definitely accent nail material.
Henna-thing Is Possible: This metallic fuchsia is really beautiful! Its a little more on the purple side of fuchsia, but has a pink reflection to it. Nicely pigmented (usually metallic formulas are), but probably quite dupable in a different brand.
Im So Sari!: My absolute favorite shade in the whole collection! Its just so stunned! An opaque turquoise blue with iridescent glitter all eyes are on this one. Its quite flashy, but totally pool-party ready.
Seriously, Its a Naan-Issue: A deep, opaque purple cream shade. It was nice to see some variety in texture and shade with this color, being darker and without shimmer. Its a gorgeous deep, vampy purple that I can totally see for summer nights.
