OPI Breakfast at Tiffany's nail polish 2016 hoilday REVIEW and swatches

The Breakfast at Tiffany's OPI collection was one that I kept my eyes out for since the summer. I am a fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Audrey Hepburn so this collection really spoke out to me. Not only are the shades posh, glam, and feminine at the same time, they are also quite appropriate for fall. I only picked up one shade in this collection due to finding this OPI display at a random beauty store. I will likely go back and pick out a few more when I have time! In the meantime, take a look at this shade "Breakfast at Tiffany's."


OPI 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', $9.49
Breakfast at Tiffany's (BaT) is the name of the collection, but also happens to be the shade I picked up. BaT is a champagne pink pearl shade and is definitely a shade I tend to gravitate towards. However, I didn't find anything like this in my collection. I can think of one that might be similar and that is Rescue Beauty Lounge's Pizzicato, but that one leans more purple. I like that this doesn't wash out my hands and brightens my skin instead.

Application/texture: The applicator brush is wide and applies easily. One side of the brush did have a bristle that curved the wrong way and I had to remember not to use that side. I don't know if I just got a defective brush, but other than that it was easy to apply. Though there is a ton of shimmer, I don't notice any gritty feeling on its own.
Coats: I applied 3 light coats to get the coverage seen above. With just two coats, you can see visible nail line.
Staying power: So far after 4 days, it is still going strong. I have four coats of polish plus one coat of Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel Topcoat.
Finish: The finish to this polish alone is more of a matte. It is actually quite funny because it is also very shimmery. It does dry matte and I tried to show that in one of the photos above. However, after a topcoat is added, it becomes the shiny nature you would expect with a topcoat.
Overall: I love Breakfast at Tiffany's and I am so glad OPI did this collection. There are a couple more shades I will try to get, but I think this one is my favorite from just looking at the bottles. The application was easy and the color was unique. I can see this as a great bridal nail polish. It brightens your hands and is still very subtle and neutral.
