Hi Lovelies! Today I’d like to share with you the madly pretty polishes that comprise the limited edition OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection.
The collection was released in May 2016 to celebrate the release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass film and is part of the OPI Brights line. In keeping with the fantastical nature of the movie, there are quite a few unique, whimsical polishes in this collection that are sure to tickle some (if not all) of your fancies!
First up is Fearlessly Alice, which has to lead the charge since the whole story and line is nothing without Alice’s courage! This polish looks brilliant on and applies evenly in 2 coats. My only gripe with this electric peacock blue is that it stained my nails ~ phooey! Otherwise she’s perfect.
A Mirror Escape
Next up is A Mirror Escape: a metallic gold embellished with small white and silver glitter. I like metallic and glitter polishes on their own, but I’m not so crazy about them mixed together. Meh. At least this one is unique! Pictured below is 2 thick coats (that wanted to dry lumpy) with top coat.
Having a Big Head Day
Having a Big Head Day is a sizzling red crème that applies like butter and is absolutely stunning! If you don’t have a standard hot red in your arsenal, this one will suit your nails perfectly! One caveat: avoid touching your cuticles and sidewalls with this polish or they might stay red for a while (just go slowly and patiently and she’ll look great!). Pictured below is 2 coats with top coat.
Mad for Madness Sake
Another lovely crème is up next! This bright, bold fuchsia is called Mad for Madness Sake and she’s gorg! OPI does crèmes so very right! Pictured here is 2 coats with top coat once again.
The I’s Have It
The I’s Have It dries to a beautiful powder blue finish but she takes 3 coats to get to full opacity. Love the final look; don’t love the patchy formula.
Oh My Majesty!
My absolute favorite of this collection, this is Oh My Majesty!, a dreamy pearlescent marshmallow with a beautiful hint of pink shimmer. She’s stunning in all lighting and is quite magical! If you only spring for one polish from the collection, this is it!
What’s the Hatter With You?
Another perfect 2-coater crème, this is What’s the Hatter With You?. She’s the purrfect vampy polish for Fall and I love her.
I’m Gown for Anything
A classic lilac crème, this is I’m Gown for Anything! and she’s oh-so pretty. Pictured below is 2 coats with top coat.
What Time Isn’t It?
Here’s a polish I dislike so much I love it! In the bottle I was immediately turned off by What Time Isn’t It?, a special edition dark gray crème with silver bar glitter. I was even inclined to hate this polish with a shiny top coat. Thank the goddess for matte top coat!!! She really makes this polish shine with no shine (see both versions below). Two coats was sufficient to reach full opacity.
Overall I really liked the OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection. It has several very unique shades (ahem, O My Majesty! and What Time Isn’t It?) plus lots of the yummy crèmes that OPI does so well.
How did you like the collection? Let me know in the comments below!
