Cherry blossoms

I love this time of year so much, especially when the cherry blossoms start to bloom. So I just had to make some nails to match the season! 🌾

The base is It’s a boy! from this year’s soft shades collection. I used How great is your Dane? for the branches, Mod about you and Shorts story to paint the flowers and You are so outta lime! for the leaves.



Of course I had to get a picture with my nails and a cherry blossom tree!

OPI Soft Shades Pastels 

Yesterday I got a lovely nail mail from OPI Sweden; the new soft shades collection. And now I finally have swatches to show you from this years pastels collection!

IgÄr fick jag ett fint paket pÄ posten frÄn OPI Sverige; den nya soft shades kollektionen. Och nu har jag Àntligen swatches pÄ Ärets pastell-kollektion att visa er! 

All swatches are painted over one coat of base coat and are without topcoat.

Alla swatches Àr mÄlade över ett lager baslack och de Àr utan topplack.

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – It’s in the cloud

It’s in the cloud is a white polish with a grey/beige tone. The formula is a bit thick and it’s a bit tricky to apply the polish. I needed three coats to get full opacity.

It’s in the cloud Ă€r ett vitt lack med en grĂ„-beige ton. Lackets formula Ă€r ganska tjockt och det Ă€r lite lurigt att applicera lacket. Jag behövde tre lager för att fĂ„ det heltĂ€ckande.

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – This cost me a mint

This cost me a mint is a light mint green polish. I love colors like this one for spring! It is easy to apply and the formula is really good. You’ll only need two coats of this polish to get full coverage.

This cost me a mint Àr ett ljust mintgrönt lack. Jag Àlskar fÀrger som den hÀr till vÄren! Lacket Àr lÀtt att applicera och formulan Àr vÀldigt bra. Det rÀcker med tvÄ laget av detta lack för att fÄ det heltÀckande.

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – One chic chick

Finally a pale yellow polish from OPI, I have waited so long for a polish like this! One chic chick is pretty thin and runny, so be careful around your cuticles as this one tends to flood them! I used three coats to get full opacity.

Äntligen ett ljusgult lack frĂ„n OPI, jag har vĂ€ntat lĂ€nge pĂ„ ett lack i denna fĂ€rg! One chic chick Ă€r ganska tunt och rinnigt, sĂ„ var försiktig runt nagelbanden dĂ„ detta lack lĂ€tt svĂ€mmar över dem. Jag mĂ„lade tre lager för att fĂ„ det heltĂ€ckande.

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – Stop it I’m blushing!

Stop it I’m blushing! is a light peach pink polish. It’s easy to apply and I needed three coats to get it opaque.

Stop it I’m blushing! Ă€r ett ljust aprikosrosa lack. Det Ă€r lĂ€ttapplicerat och jag behövde tre lager för att fĂ„ det heltĂ€ckande. 

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – It’s a boy!

As with One chic chick, I’ve been waiting for a baby blue polish like It’s a boy! from OPI too! I know that What’s with the cattitude? is the perfect light blue polish, but it’s so expensive now, since I didn’t get it when it was released. The formula of It’s a boy! is a bit thin, but it’s still easy to apply. I needed three thin coats to get full coverage.

Precis som med One chic chick har jag vĂ€ntat pĂ„ ett babyblĂ„tt lack som It’s s boy! frĂ„n OPI med! Jag vet att What’s with the cattitude? Ă€r det perfekta ljusblĂ„a lacket, men det Ă€r sĂ„ dyrt nu, eftersom jag inte köpte det nĂ€r det slĂ€pptes. Formulan pĂ„ It’s a boy! Ă€r lite tunn, men det Ă€r Ă€ndĂ„ enkelt att applicera. Jag behövde tre tunna lager för att fĂ„ det heltĂ€ckande.

OPI Soft Shades Pastels – I am what I amethyst

I am what I amethyst is a pale purple polish with a dusty grey tone. The formula is really good and I only needed two coats for full coverage.

I am what I amethyst Àr ett ljuslila lack med en grÄ ton. Lacket har en bra formula och jag behövde bara mÄla tvÄ lager för att fÄ det heltÀckande.

Since I have started to swatch my collection on swatch sticks, I thought it’s about time to make use of them! I dug out similar colors to compare them with each other. No dupes, only a few similar polishes. But I haven’t swatched my entire collection yet, so maybe I have a few more polishes that are similar to these…

Eftersom jag har börjat swatcha min samling  pĂ„ swatch sticks sĂ„ tĂ€nkte jag att det Ă€r dags att fĂ„ anvĂ€ndning för dem! Jag letade upp liknande fĂ€rger för att jĂ€mföra med varandra. Inga dupes, bara nĂ„gra som Ă€r ganska lika i fĂ€rg. Men jag har inte swatchat hela min samling Ă€n, sĂ„ jag kanske har nĂ„gra fler lack som Ă€r liknande dessa…

I really really like this collection. It’s so much better than previous soft shades collections in my opinion. Beautiful pastel colors that are perfect for spring and they are all opaque. Which polish did I end up wearing after swatching them all? Stop it I’m blusing!

Jag gillar den hĂ€r kollektionen riktigt mycket. Den Ă€r sĂ„ mycket bĂ€ttre Ă€n tidigare soft shades kollektioner enligt mig. Vackra pastellfĂ€rger som Ă€r perfekt nu i vĂ„r och alla Ă€r heltĂ€ckande. Vilket lack valde jag att ha pĂ„ mig efter att ha swatchat alla? Stop it I’m blushing!

OPI Soft Shades 2016: Pastels

This evening I stumbled upon this picture on Instagram and I got so excited! Pastels from OPI, so perfect for spring! After trying Depend’s Five shades of sorbet collection I just want to wear pastels on my nails all spring. So I’m really looking forward to these polishes!

It’s A Boy | This Cost Me A Mint | I Am What I Amethyst | One Chic Chick | Stop, I’m Blushing | It’s In The Cloud

The polishes I’m most looking forward to try is the baby blue, the pale yellow and the mint green. I have been looking for a perfect baby blue for such a long time and maybe this could be THE one. I have two blue polishes that are pretty good; Gelato on my mind and Gargantuan green grape (both in blue and green), and I would love to someday have What’s with the cattitude? but it’s so expensive. The pale yellow looks so pretty and I have no polish like this one in my collection, so I obviously need it!

From what I have found they should be available from April first, so in less than a month we’ll hopefully get to see more of them. I can’t wait to see if they dry matte or shiny and how many coats you’ll need with these. As soon as I get my hands on them I will show you more of this collection!
