OPI Holiday Wishes - Winter 2009 (!!!)

Merry Christmas! Seriously.
Well, I guess it's time to start Christmas shopping... Ummmmm. At least OPI thinks so (wonder why there is no "Suzi Loves Crazy" color in there). Here is the 2009 holiday collection "Holiday Wishes".

The collection appears to have two parts. I don't know what they are called, but personally I'd call this "The Usual Boring Reds" (yes, I am bitter about seeing a holiday collection in March!)

Please note that the descriptions come from OPI, not me. I'm not THAT crazy.


Meet & Jingle - A rich crimson that loves to mingle.
Crimson Carol - You’ll want to sing about this rosy-red shimmer.

Glove You So Much - Almost as much as this burgundy!
Smitten with Mittens - A burgundy glitter to warm your fingertips.


Comet Loves Cupid - And you’ll love this classic red.
Dear Santa - Please bring me this glittering holiday red!


This next one might be called "Sort of Looks Like What We Put in the South Beach Collection". It has poopy browns and purples. I think some of these might grow on me. I'm probably just in holiday collection shock right now.

Ginger Bells - A yummy shade of gingerbread.
Shim-mery Chic - A gorgeous glimmer of bronzed glow.

All A-Bordeaux the Sled! - Dash in for this luscious shade of wine.
Holiday Glow - Charcoal grey glowing with a touch of silver.

Sapphire in the Snow - A deep jewel-toned violet-blue.
Merry Midnight - Blue-violet, with a starry, multi-hued shimmer.

That's way too early...at least it's better than last year (was it opi?) with that gold/red/green glittery colors...

I like the poopy brown though,and the cream violet blue...

Nessa said...

I agree these are not that great :( But maybe just because it's not even spring yet!
I think if I HAD to pick my fav it would be Merry Midnight.

Crimson Carol seems pretty, as does Dear Santa, and Merry Midnight.

However, I'm not wanting to think about winter or christmas right now. I'm wanting to think about spring and summer, so I'm not very excited for these :P

Why do they never have colors like the Snow Queen from Narnia? White-blue-silver?

Jen said...

I so agree with Phyrra! I want to see a pale, icy blue for winter like your eyeko konadicure.

The only color that makes me excited in this collection is the violet-blue cream. I hate poo-brown. :[

*rolls eyes at OPI* Christmas/Holiday/Winter? Really OPI? Really? And is it me or are the red shades on the right in each picture identical? Thanks for the post. It seems that Christmas comes earlier every year. :-P

I agree that it is way too early for this collection. It's 32 degrees here in New Jersey and I want warm weather not cold! I do love the second half of the collection. All the reds do look identical. I would like one with the shimmer though. OPI, keep your Christmas collection to yourself for now!

Brooke said...

I like the collection. It really doesn't bother me seeing it so early either.

I like pretty much all the colors, but I don't think I would order all of them. Nothing really special about most of the colors, but they are pretty colors, nonetheless :)

Thanks for the post on these.

Velvet said...

Yes, I agree, too early for Christmas collections. And not even any greens! I'm sure there will be a few that I'll end up buying anyway. By the way, you have such a nice blog. And I love your nails!

Lina-Elvira said...

Seriously?.. :( I'm disappointed they do this in March, AND the colour selection... :( Thanks for posting, but I think I'm gonna go back and enjoy your recent SR instead, cause its v pretty :)

I just got a manicure with Crimson Carol, and my girlfriend got Dear Santa and I have to say they are much like that dress that doesnt look like much on the rack, but POPS once it's on you. The color is so rich yet extremely sparly giving it a bright quality that makes pale winter skin GLOW. Seriously.
