OPI Coca-Cola Collection: Coca-Cola Red and You're So Vain-illa


I'm a bit late to the game with this, but I thought I'd share my swatches of the two OPI Coca-Cola collection polishes that I bought. I was quite excited about this collection, since to me a collaboration with OPI and Coca-Cola seemed like a great idea and I immediately knew I just had to have the red one. Since, well, it's the Coca Cola red. Finally I just ended up buying the red one and the vanilla one as those two were really the only ones that interested me enough.


So, I have the swatches of Coca-Cola Red and You're So Vain-illa to share with you guys today. 

Let's start with the color this collection absolutely needed to have; the famous Coca Cola red color called - what else than - Coca-Cola Red. I have two easy coats here, no base or top coat. This is really a classic red with a color that will look good on pretty much everybody. It was so easy to apply, it didn't bleed to the cuticles and even though it is quite pigmented, it's not too difficult to clean up. I love this one so much and to me it's really the perfect color! It's gorgeous red and moreover, it's really a super close match to Coca Cola's iconic red color.


I'm a Coca Cola girl all the way, so if you are like me, I'd say this is a must have! At least to me this is going to take the spot in my collection as that perfect red.



Then to the second one called You're So Vain-illa, which has obviously gotten its inpiration from Vanilla Coca Cola. The color here is pretty much also spot on to those vanilla shades in the Coca Cola can. I have also two coats here, this time with a base and top coat. This was actually a bit on the thick side, but it wasn't anything too major. Two coats give you nice coverage.


Unfortunately though, this color wasn't really the best match with my skintone, on me it looked a bit too yellow. I have seen some gorgeous swatch pictures of this one though, so if you have a better matching skintone for this one, it will look divine!



How about you guys, did you get any polishes from this OPI Coca-Cola collection?

  1. Mahtikuvat lakoista, joista molemmat vaikuttaa laadukkailta mutta toi Vanilla ei ehkä loppujen lopuksi sovi mulle värinä... Punainen lakka puolestaan houkuttelee liiankin kanssa siihen nähden etten juurikaan käytä punaisia. :D

    2. Kiitoksia! :) Tuo Vain-illan väri on vähän vaikea, se joko sopii tai ei. Ja jos ei, niin sit se näyttää kyllä vähän hassulta ja selkeesti väärän väriseltä. Tuo punainen on ihan ehdoton, vaikka en miäkään punaisia ihan hirveesti käytä, mutta pitäähän sitä silti laatikoista edes yksi täydellinen punainen löytyä! :)

    1. Kiitos! :) On creme ja väittäisin kyllä, että tuo voisi olla täydellinen punainen monellekin erilaiselle ihonsävylle, eli suosittelen ehdottomasti! :)

  4. Olisin halunnut rakastaa Vain-illaa, mutta se oli liian kellertävä mulle. Möks. Punaista en ostanut, koska punainen on punainen, ja olen oman lempipunaiseni jo löytänyt. Sen sijaan ostin Green On The Runwayn, joka on ihan huikean upea lakka ♥

    Kauniit swatchit!

    1. Vain-illa näytti joissain kuvissa niin upealta, mutta se on kyllä harmi, ettei se sitten sovikaan oman ihonsävyn kanssa yksiin. Punainen on kyllä semmonen, että jos se lemppari on jo löytynyt, niin eipähän sitä muille enää tarvetta ole. Tuo Green On The Runway oli harkintalistalla, mutta jätin sen nyt kuitenkin hankkimatta. Kuvissa se kyllä näyttää varsin upealta tapaukselta!

      Kiitoksia! <3

  6. I really like Vanilla instead :D red cremes are definitely not my thing, I cannot see myself in red at all (even if I just discovered I really like a holo one), it makes me feel old ahahah :D
    And getting back to the old chapter thing's I've never seen here, that Vanilla coke in Italy doesn't exist :D

    1. Vain-illa is a great color, is just wasn't right for me. :/ Yeah, red cremes are bit difficult, but I think everyone needs to have at least one that is just perfect! :)

      Oh, a while ago Vanilla coke didn't exist here either. Just lately some stores have started to sell all these American goodies, so now they have that Vanilla one too. I think I prefer the original one though. :D
