OPI Oz Glints of Glinda, Lights of Emerald City, Don't Burst My Bubble, I Theodora You - Photos, Review, Swatches

Yipes, guys! This weekend was so hectic it felt like no weekend at all D: I'm therefore behind on my self-imposed posting schedule, but hope to get back on track by this weekend. Hope everyone had a lovely, stress-free holiday!

Sooo, Oz! I haven't seen the movie (haven't even seen the original), but I did pick up some of OPI's lacquer releases for the film. I loved the ballet-themed Soft Shades OPI made recently so even though I normally don't fall in love with these kind of subtle shades, these are too squishy and jelly-like for me not to adore! I don't reach for sheer neutrals often but when I do, I reach for Dos Equis OPI Soft Shades!

I got Glints of Glinda, Don't Burst My Bubble, Lights of Emerald City, and I Theodora You:

All swatches are three coats. Here's Don't Burst My Bubble, a soft, warm white -

Glints of Glinda, a yellow-tinted nude beige -

I Theodora You, a milky cool pink -

I Theodora You with one coat of Lights of Emerald City -

The formula on the jellies was spectacular - smooth, easy to work with, and only showing minimal streaks on Don't Burst My Bubble. Theodora was most pigmented, completely opaque in three coats. So squishy, I want to poke them! There was some fishing involved with Lights of Emerald City, but I do love the look of this topcoat (especially the white squares!). Overall, I know these will be staples in my collection as either a base for a bolder look or on their own for something 'work-appropriate' and traditional.

These are available at Ulta stores for $9.

What do you think??


  1. Oh the first three can definitely be used to make those "jelly sandwiches" lol, these shades do seem very similar to the ballerina collection OPI had just a while back though

    1. Hah yep, if you have those you probably don't need these! I just love them so much, I had to have both :P
