OPI Nordic Collection: Suzi Has A Swede Tooth, Ice Bergers & Fries, Going My Way Or Norway Review & Swatches

I've been updating my Fall makeup stash. A couple of colors in OPI's Nordic Collection ($9.50 USD) caught my eye. I was mainly interested in some of the brown shades, but a cute pink shade also made my heart flutter. I mentally went back & forth as to whether or not I should buy it, as I walked through ULTA. DID I REALLY NEED another pink polish? LOL I ended up buying it (the name was too cute); and I'm glad I did, because I love it. Below are the ones I purchased and my thoughts. Have a SWEET tooth of a week!

OPI Nordic Collection: Suzi Has A Swede Tooth

OPI Nordic Collection: Ice Bergers & Fries

OPI Nordic Collection: Going My Way Or Norway?

There are 12 shades in OPI's Nordic Collection! Each shade is buildable. One coat will work great and if you want to darken or deepen the color just apply a second coat. The 3 that I tried, dried quickly and lasted for a week. I really like the shades I chose. Definitely check out the other colors in the collection. Most are deep colors. They'll work great with your Fall wardrobe! (video credit: Lenny Kravitz Are You Gonna Go My Way?)

Lilli said...

Oh Kim, I would have bought the pink one just for the name as well, how lovely it looks! I also love the other two, especially ice bergers & fries. I need to switch my nail polishes into more autumn ones as well :) Have a lovely week Kim, many kisses! xo

Kim!!! I love the look of the new purchases! Your nails look beautiful. Do I need to tell you I am now hungry!!!!

Stanislava E. said...

You have such an imagination! Love the photos, good job! I liked the pink one the most! Have a great Monday!


Jackie Harrison said...

Very unique way to take pictures of the nail polish the shades are amazing great job.

Mica T said...

Oh love that pink on you, and definitely such a fun name, I agree you just had to get it!

You always take the best photos - you must spend ages thinking of the perfect backgrounds!

You chose well, Kim! The brown shade in particular would tone well with a couple of items I've just bought to start off my autumn wardobe. The names are so clever. I often wonder what it must be like to have a job naming polishes. Fun! Once again I love the way you chose your backgrounds - cute photos. Have a great week.

Oh gosh, you really are into all things sweet! I think you are the most loyal-to-their-name blogger I know. Eyyyy spending monies on OPI though; with all the bits and pieces you pick up you must have an amazing budget! Rosemary x

So wonderful! And I love the chocolate and toffee ones the most! :)

Pilar said...

Pamela RG said...

The pink nail polish looks so pretty. Your donut backdrop looks so yummy.


This is very fun and playful. I think I will have to buy this for my bf's sister, she's half Swedish. Always love your little sweet reviews Kim. :)

These polishes have such fun names! You chose two really pretty colors Kim and they both look amazing on you. The pink is more fun while the brown is more sophisticated.

These are lovely, and I especially adore the pink shade. It's just too perfect! Also, my family is Norwegian so I guess better go grab the collection!


Anya Jensen said...

Ha ha - love the styling and the names on the bottles - Suzy has a swede tooth - he he , they forgot the most important Scandies though- the Danes ;-))
Take care love,

Lorena said...

Oh the power of marketing in choosing names for their shades :) they get me every time too.
I think you picked versatile shades that will look fab through fall and beyond.

Anne said...

Lovely colours Kim:) Have a great week!

Kizzy Von Doll said...

Gorgeous shades doll, love that pink, it's so vibrant and sweet. Looks perfect with your skin tone as well. Good to hear they dried quickly as well, I have heard this about OPI, I need to try their polishes as nothing annoys me more when painting my nails is having to wait for it to dry - girl, I always have to go to the bathroom when I paint my nails, how that happens, I have no idea, haha!! Hope you had a great start to the week my friend Xxx

oomph. said...

the pink is REALLY pretty, kim! i like a bright pink without sparkle, and this looks like a good one!

Jane said...

love the shades! i have to paint my nails again. i always seem to put it off all the time! today though! i'll paint my nails! :)

Sara Gerard said...

YOUR BLOG ALWAYS MAKES ME HUNGRY! I love, love that last shade! Perfect for autumn!

Busola Coutts said...

Very milky sweet colors. I love the pink and please how cute are the names of the nail polish. Hahaha, next time, think - Life is too short. Just buy! 😊. Great post.

Love chocolate color! And now I want both: sweets and nail polish:-)


Cee said...

I have to admit that the colours in this collection weren't exactly what I would expect from a Nordic- themed collection, but I do love the three shades you chose; they're all great basics for fall!

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

The three colors look beautiful especially those tasty backgrounds you chose! Have a nice week Kim.


Maria Cartagena said...

Those are pretty shades. That mocha looking one is my favorite, in full autumn mode. :)



Sakuranko said...

Oh the OPI Nordic Collection: Suzi Has A Swede Tooth is a perfect color for everyday!


Emmylou said...

Oh...em...gee! Kim, I'm obsessing over that Ice Bergers and Fries. They're all great shades, but that one has to be my fave. TY for this review, Kim. You're really killing my wallet btw....hehe

jo said...

Hi Kim! You just inspired me to wear bronze nail polish, never tried them before. Great colours for fall. Hey, are you going to do a recap on NYFW? Would love to see it. :)) Have a great week pal!

xo Jo


Linda B said...

I swear, the best part about OPI nail polishes are the names!
Thanks for the advise too, Kim, I always appreciate it <3

Mmm doughnuts!

(Pretty nail polishes too xo)

Ivana Split said...

You know I still haven't tried Opi nail-polishes! I really should!

I like the pink one, but I love the chocolate and caramel ones (just seeing these photos makes me want to eat some caramel...I've always loved colours that remind me of my favourite food.)


LyddieGal said...

I'm the same way with my polishes - I keep buying variations of the same colors! There is something about having a new one that makes it feel exciting again. Glad to hear it's a good collection.

I don't see brown nail polishes that often, but it actually looks good painted on! the pink is such a pretty color, love how you too the photos, Kim!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Such pretty shades! I love how you complimented them with the food in the photos. :) Lenny Kravitz = sexy!

Dale Janee said...

This is SO creative how you took the pics with the food Kim and I just saw that collection and the pink is really pretty (kinda reminds me of past OPI pink shades) but I'd buy it just for the name lol. I definitely want to buy the whole collection!

I love OPI shades1 and your reviews are always fun to read. even I haven't had time to blog regularly because of work and everything.

Jillian said...

I love the brown. It's very different from what I normally see at the store (pinks, nudes, reds). OPI is definitely a favorite in the nail polish department. Essie too!

Coco said...

Dear Kim, I'm revamping my makeup stash too ehehe :-) I love especially the second chocolatey shade, I think it looks great on your skin!
