It is already feeling like fall where I live, with the cooling breeze and rain on-and-off. Fall is not only my favorite season because of the cozy weather, but also because of all the beautiful nail polish colors. The first swatch of fall/winter collection of the year, I bring you some excellent choices from OPI. This September, OPI in Taiwan introduce 6 new shades from the Nature Strong line, inspired by metropolitan chic, including some elegant muted shades as well as some vibrant accent colors, which I’m sure there will be one for everyone!
OPI Nature Strong is the latest product line from OPI. The products are all vegan, cruelty free, and 9 free. They are made with 75% non-GMO, natural ingredients, including sugar cane, wheat, corn, and potato, etc. That is why the fume from this collection is significantly less irritating. Since they are plant-based nail polishes, it can be used without a base coat underneath. Furthermore, 20% of the material used to produce the cap and bottle of this line of product, are recycled materials. OPI truly strive to reduce the impact on the environment with the Nature Strong line, both inside and out. If you want to see some swatches of the spring and summer picks, check out my previous blog post “OPI Nature Strong 2022 Summer Picks“. But first, let’s take a look at these beautiful fall and winter shades!
It’s Ashually OPI
First up we have a light grey creme with a greenish undertone. I would say it looks flattering on my Asian skin tone, and I believe it would suit those with olive undertone very well too. If you’re looking for a work/school appropriate winter color, I always recommend light grey and muted purple. This one is a solid choice in my opinion. Opaqued in 2 coats.It’s Ashually OPI｜US$11.50｜15ml
The second one is for the rich color lovers out there, a mid-tone grape purple creme. A lot of people I know are hesitant toward wearing darker shades, but I think these kind of colors are so perfect for winter time! Opaqued in 2 coats.Eco-Maniac｜US$11.50｜15ml
Right as Rain
Top winter color recommendation #2! This is a muted, pale lavender creme, a very romantic color. It is a perfect day-to-day shade, suitable for any occasion whether it is office or wedding. Opaqued in 2 coats, which is a pleasant surprise.Right as Rain｜US$11.50｜15ml
Intentions are Rose Gold
Here comes my favorite of all 6, a luxurious rose gold metallic polish! It is a warm tone rose gold that is very elegant and chic. I could totally see this used in NYE manis. The brush strokes are not very obvious when dry, which is a plus for me. Opaque in 2 coats.Intentions are Rose Gold｜US$11.50｜15ml
Give a Garnet
Another color that I really enjoy among the 6! This is a garnet red creme, as the name suggested. It is a solid, fully opaqued creme that does not have the jelly-like formula often seen in red polishes. It is not a smashingly bright red, but a slightly muted one. Among all the greyish fall/winter colors, this serves as a great accent, adding a touch of energy to the season. Opaque in 2 coats.Give a Garnet｜US$11.50｜15ml
Force of Nailture
Finally, we have a dark pigeon grey creme with a blue/purple undertone. I imagine it would look great on those with pink skin undertone, or cool-tone skin. The colors is just so rich and cozy! Opaqued in 2 coats.Force of Nailture｜US$11.50｜15ml
After trying out the Nature Strong polishes for the second time, it is safe to say I’m more and more obsessed. I’m truly looking forward for more colors from this line, so that we can have more products that are more environmental friendly to choose from. As per usual, here’s a nail are design I made using some colors shared today. Hope you enjoy it and all the swatches.
