Swatches: OPI Brazil Copacababies

I was super excited when I received the OPI Brazil Copacababies set in the mail a few weeks ago because we all know that I have somewhat of a nail polish addiction problem. Having said that, I've been far too busy to do my nails every other day ever since we've moved into our new old house. I'll be lucky if I have time to do my nails once a week! I finally had some spare time over the weekend to swatch these gorgeous polishes and take some photos.

OPI Brazil Copacababies
As with most OPI sets, the Brazil Copacababies comes with four mini bottles of polishes. I love mini sets, as I rarely finish a bottle of polish and it's such a great way to sample colours, as it normally costs slightly more than a full sized bottle of OPI.

L-R: Kiss Me I'm Brazilian; Next Stop... The Bikini Zone; AmazON... AmazOFF; Where did Suzi's Man-Go?
OPI Brazil Copacababies includes:
1. Kiss Me I'm Brazilian - Plant this warm luscious pink on me! 
A barbie pink shade that is perfect for summer... or if you're living in denial like me and pretending it's summer when it's actually winter. I like thinking warm thoughts. 

Please excuse the dry cuticles. Unfortunately, thinking warm thoughts does not make my cuticles less affected by the cold weather.

I used two coats for the above swatches, and I was pleased that it wasn't streaky at all!

2. Next Stop... The Bikini Zone - This amethyst-toned pewter suits me just fine.
A fairly sheer purple shimmer with pewter/green duochrome. It was super hard to photograph. I found it so hard to catch the purple in this polish. 

Three (fairly thick) coats were used for the above swatch. 

3. AmazON... AmazOFF - I'm making the switch to this deep jungle green.
I wouldn't call this a "jungle" green, as it looks more like a teal "ocean" green to me. I associate "jungle" green to a shade with more green than blue. 

Surprisingly, I needed three coats for the above swatch. I have a french acrylic on, and two coats was not opaque enough to hide my white tips. However, on natural nails, I'm sure two coats will be enough.

4. Where did Suzi's Man-Go? - He went to fetch her this delicious mango smoothie.
I'm going to be honest here and say this shade looks horrible on my nails. My skin tone does not agree with it. But it will probably look quite nice if you have a darker skin tone.

I used two coats for the above swatch. No problems with streaking either.

I thought that the OPI Brazil Copacababies had a nice range of colours in a set. As mentioned before, mini sets such as Copacababies is such a great way to sample colours without forking out too much money by purchasing each individual full size bottles. I did not have a problem with streaking in any of the polishes, and drying time was really short too. 

This product was kindly provided for my consideration. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.


  1. These look really nice! It's a shame the orange doesn't sit well with your skin tone, it's a stunner of a shade!
