OPI Iceland | comparisons

Sooo this post is long overdue, I said I’d post it a few days after the Iceland swatches but obviously that didn’t happen. But better late than never…. right?
I looked through my OPI collection and took out the shades that I thought would be most similar to the new polishes. I’m not comparing Turn on the northern lights! because I don’t have any polishes that are similar to that one.

Check out the old geysirs – I can never hut up

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They are very similar in formula, but Check out the old geysirs is ice blue whereas I can never hut up is grey/green.

This isn’t Greenland – Don’t talk Bach to me

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They’re no dupes, they’re not even that similar, especially not on the nails.

Aurora berry-alis – Just lanai-ing around

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They look very similar in this photo and they are almost the same shade. The big difference between them is that Just lanai-ing around has shimmer in it.

One heckla of a color – Purple palazzo pants

Here I’m wearing two coats of One heckla of a color and three coats of Purple palazzo pants. Looking at the bottle shots I thought they’d be more similar in color, but they’re not similar at all. Well they’re both purple, but thats about it. 😉

Reykjavik has all the hot spots – Hands off my kielbasa

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They both have that frosted finish, Reykjavik has all the hot spots dries with more visible brushstrokes, apart from that they’re not very similar.

Icelanded a bottle of OPI  – Berlin there done that – Taupe-less beach

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. If you compare the bottles Icelanded a bottle of OPI looks almost identical to Taupe-less beach, but on the nails Icelanded a bottle of OPI is pretty much a lighter shade of Berlin there done that (and not that similar to Taupe-less beach).

I’ll have a gin & tectonic – Barking up the wrong sequoia – A great opera-tunity

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They’re all pretty similar, so you probably don’t need to have them all (unless you’re a polish addict).

Less is norse – Suzi & the arctic fox – Dark side of the mood

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. They’re all beautiful dark shades, but they’re no dupes.

That’s what friends are Thor – I brake for manicures – Krona-logical order – Shh… it’s top secret

Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. No dupes for the new Iceland shades, but here we have four beautiful brown shades that are perfect for fall!

I hope these swatches helped you in your decision of which shades to get. Please let me know in the comments which ones you’re planning on getting (or already got) and which ones you’ll skip out on (and why)!
