Nail it - OPI Shrek tacular collection

Jun08

Hey, ladies of the NUTT HOUSE!

A friend of mine received an OPI Shrek tacular mini collection & passed it to me so that i can swatch it and share with u ladies.  I was really excited to try out this collection that was conjured up based on a BIG GREEN OGRE.  This mini set consists of 4 out of the 6 shades in the Shrek Forever After collection.

I thought that the colours would be funkier and hard to pull off but i'm pleasantly surprised.  As you can see, other than Who The Shrek Are You which is a funky shrek-green, the other 3 shades are pretty much pastels.  This is supposed to be part of the OPI summer collection, but somehow i find it a tad bit spring-y instead.


I personally like Fiercely Fiona (yellow) and Rumple's wriggin' (lilac).  They are both easy-to-pull-off kind of shades.    I actually went out with all 4 shades on my nails & somehow, it felt that they really belong together... very complete... no finger was sticking out like a sore thumb or clashing despite the fact that i had all 4 shades on me (",)


Gonna end off with a fun pic of the minis along with a regular sized OPI bottle.  They are so tiny... i can imagine painting a child's nails with them... ...

Cool! The way you went out with your fingers looking like that! I think I shall pair What's with the cattitude and Rumple's Wriggin just like how you did it. I was initially thinking of pairing it up with the darker shade (light purple, dark purple & light blue, dark blue)
Thanks for sharing!

The last picture is sooooo cute! Like a big mama with her children in pastel colours. She does look big and fiery to protect her little ones. :D If I have a girl like you, I might paint her toe nails with all the shrek colours hehe

The colors are so pretty worn like that! They all work well with your skintone :D I especially like how Fiercely Fiona looks here. It seems on other swatches it looks a bit brighter and 'harder to wear'.

hey Kim, my intend was to just swatch the 4 colours but as it turned out, the combi looked pretty good indeed! RUMPLE's WRIGGIN' is such a funny name! everytime i see or hear it, i imagine the donkey wriggling his butt (",)

hey Redberried, Malaga Wine & her minis look like they are from different nationalities, ya? a bold red mama with her pastel kiddies.. hehee...

hi Syidah and Amyrleex :p i'm glad i took the last pic of the giant with the minis... the mini brushes and the mini caps aren't that great to work with though.

hihi Sara, i love Fiercely Fiona so much... regret not ordering it from Gwen's spree. I ordered Lemon Fizz though.. it's lighter. Hopefully i can achieve the feathery yellow chicks look from lemon fizz (",)

hihi Amy (purplio) i think your Done Out in Deco would be a great combi with Wat's with the cattitude.

hihi icefrost :p seems like fiona's a more wearable colour than shrek's swampy green. yes, i didn't wanna remove the colours & they stayed on my nails for 2 days before i decided that i really cannot go out like that hehee...(",)
