OPI Peanut Collection for Autumn 2014
So OPI is coming out with a Halloween collection based on the Charles Schulz comic characters from the cartoon strip Peanuts.
Here’s what the set of four polishes looks like:
The set contains of two crèmes: A yellow called "Good Grief", inspired by Charlie Brown’s yellow sweater and a black called "WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!?", inspired by Lucy’s black hair. There are also two glitters: "Where’s my Blanket", obviously inspired by Linus, it’s a black and orange glitter, and "To Be or Not to Beagle", inspired by Snoopy himself – it’s a multicoloured mix of hexes and glitters.
It shall not be a secret that I’m not going to buy this set. I am not into crème polishes, and both the glitter mixes contain bar glitters, which I’m not a fan of either.
So what can I give you if I can’t give you swatches? I can give you my take on what a Peanuts collection should really look like!
Here’s the gang:
The first polish would be based on Sally, Charlie Brown’s little sister. The polish would be pink, like her shirt, and it would be containing a splash of two sizes matte black glitter.
The second polish would be based on Charlie Brown. It would be yellow alright, but it would be packed with silvery shimmer, so the polish would almost look like a foil.
The Third one up would be based on Linus, who Sally has a huge crush on. This polish would be red with orange flakies and holo shimmer.
Polish number six is based on Lucy, who is the girl who always pulls the ball away before Charlie Brown gets to kick it. Her polish is blue like her dress, and is extremely holographic, also in low lights. It also contains blue flecks which is slightly darker than the base colour.
As a bonus I’ve got a polish number five, Snoopy’s polish. He is the star in my book, so he obviously needs his own polish. The polish would be a holographic shimmer topper with a red to purple colour shift.
Unfortunately I am not a polish creator, so these polishes only exist in my imagination. But I wish…
So – have you got suggestions to what I should call my little collection of five Peanut polishes? Please don’t hesitate to share in the comments below.
