OPI: Oz The Great and Powerful Collection- swatches

Oh Monkeys! The OPI Oz collection has a new liquid sand! This collection is quite eclectic with soft shades, bold and unique glitters and a dark liquid sand. They're available March 8th so keep an eye out for them!
A delicate pink that leaves you looking like you have a traditional pink french manicure. This was two coats, no top coat and dry time was moderate.
My favorite combo of the glitters and polishes. Which is Witch has small hex glitter, micro glitter and small shredded glitters all in a silver holographic finish.. .LOVE THIS! Thank you OPI for creating small shredded holo glitter, I appreciate it. The glitters are all pretty dense but since they are small and in the clear base, it is not overwhelming. This was one coat over Theodora.
 Another soft sheer but this time in caramel. This was two coats and dry time again was moderate as most soft squishy shades are. It's a very plain jane look that I don't know if I could rock.
I added Lights of Emerald City over Glinda and this combo is fabulous. The square white confetti and smaller square iridescent confetti compliment Glinda well. You can see how the small confetti has a glowing effect against the soft caramel hue. 
Don't Burst My Bubble reminds me of Bubble Bath but much easier to apply and you get a more traditional french tip feeling to your mani. This was two coats and it makes your tips whiter and your nail plate more pink... good for a making natural nails stand out. 
 Love the name of this glitter but I'm still torn on how I feel about When Monkeys Fly. The large gold hex glitters are hard to fish out of the bottle (the clear base to large hex glitter ratio was rough). There is also smaller holo hex and round glitters as well which add a nice touch to fill in the spaces the large hex glitters miss. For the most part I dabbed on the large glitters after getting them off the rim of the bottle.  
Such a cool liquid sand color. This one reminds me of avocado skin but with a gold twist. It is rich, thick and eye catching. Probably my favorite liquid sand from OPI. 
As I was taking photos, it was hard to see the difference in the soft shades, so here is a side by side comparison... Hope this helps show the difference between the shades.
