OPI Summer Flutter Collection 2010 - Swatches and Review

Today I have for you a cute little summer collection from OPI. The weather outside is just right for these shades, so lets have a look at them.

OPI says: OPI is all "aflutter" this summer with four new lacquer shades inspired by the brilliance and whimsy of butterflies!
"These sizzling pinks, orange, and turquoise look amazing against summer skin," says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. "And whether you pair them with flip flops and your favorite bikini or a slinky mini with high-heeled sandals, they add a burst of exotic, tropical color to your style!"

The swatches are all without a base or top coat and are in natural daylight (no sun or lightbox).

FLOWER TO FLOWER
A beautiful bright pink with silver shimmer. Reminds me of ice cream. Just a perfect shade for summer. Application was flawless, three coats.

FLIT A BIT
Super bright orange creme. I am not much an orange person but after trying OPI Hot & Spicy I am starting to fall in love. And now I have this beauty here. Also very pretty, screaming summer is here :) Three coats and flawless aplication.

WING IT!
Love the color and idea of this one. Sadly it isn´t opaque even after three coats. I will try layering it in my next post. Still I have to say that this polish pretty and unique.

CATCH ME IN YOUR NET
I saved the best for the end. LOVE this! It is such a beautiful mermaid color. And so perfect for summer, I will be taking this one on my holidays for sure. Three coats.

I like this collection very much. The only downside is the sheerness of Wing It! but as I said, I will try some layering experiments. The formula on all of these was just perfect. Love the OPI brush :) These are already in stores, so go and get your nails ready for summer. Oh, and the good part is that all four of these can be found in the mini set. Great for traveling!
P.S. In my next posts I will be comparing these to see if there are any dupes :) stay tuned.

What do you think about the Summer Flutter Collection?

  7. I do not like WING IT! so much as I thought I would. I think Catch me and flower are my favourite.

  11. kelliegonzo: you are a doll !Still I liked wing it on your picture :)

  12. Fialko, Flower a Catch me jsou jasnymi favority, jsou to pekne barvicky a urcite ti moc slusi :) Jen u te Catch me mam pocit, ze uz mas na muj vkus na tuhle hravou a letni barvu moc dlouhe drapky. Asi je to tim, ze je to (jak pises) dovolenkova barva a ja mam leto a dovolenou spojenou s kratkymi praktictejsimi nehtiky. Nebo je to tim, ze proste ted obecne nemusim delsi a hranate nehty, ac jsem je driv taky nosila ;)

  13. This collection won't be available in Italy (as usual!) so yesterday I ordered Wing It! on Nailetc. I love that colour!
    I hope my package will arrive... When an italian girl orders on line, she has to pray and hope that someone doesn't steal or lose her package (yes, italian postal service is awful!). :(
    Anyway beautiful pics, wonderful nails and nice collection ;)

  14. Tereza: jsem ráda, že se ti barvičky líbí :) a s délkou nehtíků máš určitě pravdu, chystám se je radikálně zkrátit na dovolenou. Na fotky mám ale radši delší, nějak se mi ty krátký nelíbí. Ale je pravda, že takový drápky jsou na léto velice nepraktické.

    Cristina: oh that is a shame. It is available in my country (Czech republic). And I understand your worries about the post, our post service sucks too. I am always scared my polish will get lost.

  19. Ten Catch me in your net je prostě dokonalý, už týden se tu kochám jeho lahvičkou a zítra se ho chystám konečně nalakovat :-) A těším se na srovnání s Charlou!

  22. You should compare Catch Me In Your Net to OPI for Sephora's Skinny Jeans. I've got it on my nails now and based on your swatch it looks like the same color to me, minus the sparkles. I'd love to see a side by side comparison.

  23. Jillian: you really should. I think the mini set is great for travel :) and cute too.

    Anonymous: I would love to compare, but I don´t have the Sephora one :( I do have Zoya Charla though and my comparison will be up in few days.
