Today I have a really special swatch and review of the OPI Through The Looking Glass collection that I recently won from the #opiteapartysweepstakes giveaway on Instagram! I will take you through each of the 8 core polishes of the line and give a review as well as stamping demo!

Oh My majesty at 3 coats plus topcoat under artificial lighting.

First up Oh My Majesty, and if there is only 1 polish in this collection you can pick up I would suggest this one! This is an opalescent white with a fiery pink/gold shimmer and was opaque for me in 3 coats. The formula on this one is a little bit thin but completely worth it for the gorgeous “lit-from-within” finish. This one also looks amazing matte as well! This one picked up great fro stamping and is going to be super subtle over a lighter color for a tone on tone look or really pop over black or a darker color.

I’m Gown For Anything at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is I’m Gown For Anything, described as a creamy, adventurous lilac. i found that this shade has a lot of pink in it as well and when compared to Don’t Bossa Nova me Around is a few shades lighter but within that same tone range. This one has an impeccable and easy 2 coat formula and dries down to a glossy finish.

The I’s Have It at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is The I’s Have It, a light powder blue. This one had another easy 2 coat formula and picked up for stamping really well, if you don’t have a powder blue in your collection this is a great one!

Fearlessly Alice at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

next up is Fearlessly Alice, described as a bold cerulean blue. This one had a really easy 2 coat formula as well but fearlessly stained my skin really easily! i didn’t have any staining on my nails but I always swatch with a base coat and didn’t wear this one for very long so that may be something to watch out for! Fearlessly Alice also stamps really well!

Having A Big Head Day at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

Next up is Having A Big Head Day, a super classy orange based red. This one had great coverage at 2 coats but really toes the line on being a very pigmented jelly. It could have stood to use a third coat so depending on your preferences you may want one!

What’s The Hatter With You? at 2 coats under artificial lighting. 

Next up is What’s The Hatter With You? which is described as a rich burgundy creme. This is everything my Autumn loving heart is soothed by! Almost completely opaque in 1 coat but full coverage at 2 , this one also stamps fabulously.

A Mirror Escape at 3 coats under artificial lighting.

Lastly today I have A Mirror Escape, described by OPI as a glittering gold. I know there has been a lot of hate recently for the textured metallics that OPI has put out but I have to say, I’m not mad at this one! This shimmery gold is gull of matte white (and maybe matte silver?) gritty glitters but I kind of love the end result. This one looks amazing stamped over black, trust me!

Final look at the stamped images.

So that round out my swatch and review of the Through The Looking Glass collection, there is also a limited edition polish with bar glitter (What time isn’t it?)  that I opted not to pick up. I have featured these on But Do They Watermarble? here. These are available now so run out and pick up your favorites! Do you have your eyes on any of these?
