OPI Sprung Swatches




I should've taken a picture of my car this morning but was in a rush to get to work so I kinda forgot about it. I wanted to show you guys how much snow we got last night, looks like 7 inches in total. My car was covered pretty good and I had to shovel a bit around the parking stall in order to be able to get out. Schools were cancelled but we still had to work...dang it! Yeah, I should know better that if you work in Healthcare or Retail, having a day off due to inclement weather is wishful thinking. I still wished! lol.

Since I'm in the process of reviewing a few items. I have nothing to show at the moment but nail swatches, oops! :p

Sprung is part of the Mariah Carey collection, which just recently came out. I didn't jump on this one right away because I felt like it sort of look similar to a couple polishes that I already own. After spotting it at a nail supply store for cheaper, I decided to get it.

Well, after swatching it,  I'm glad to see that I don't have a dupe for it. Sprung looks like a reddish copper foil metallic with pink and gold shimmers. It definitely looks better in person than in pictures. I'm totally loving it. I honestly can't remember if I did 2 or 3 coats, what can I say, I swatched like 10 polishes that day and it slipped my mind, but I know it didn't require more than 3 coats. Formula was nice and easy to work it. Pigmentation was good also.

Love it? Leave it? What is your favorite nail polish finish?

  1. This is really lovely color, although I don't think it would look nice on me.
    How do your nails/cuticles look so good after 10 swatches in one sitting? Share your secrets! :D

  2. Your nails are so pretty and they make all of your swatches look beautiful. I'm surprised you don't get sought out to review polishes from companies. Anyway, I'm not too crazy about copper colored polishes, but I like this one - it looks good. My favorite finish is creme, but holos are my 2nd love.

    1. Ah I love holos too! From a business stand point, I believe companies generally seek out bloggers with a larger audience, which will give the most impact on their sale and revenue. Lil O'me can't do much with just pretty nails unfortunately I have to have millions of views on my page and thousands of followers in order to qualify I think, lol.

  3. That's a gorgeous color! And I second Crystal, you should totally be swatching away for nail companies. Bummer they only look at it in terms of followers and page views.
