OPI Oz The Great & Powerful Swatches/Review


The following was purchased by me.

I just got back from Ulta, and believe me, I had a great time because I finally picked up the brush set I wanted and a few other things INCLUDING the Oz Minis! I really had to think about it because I really want the glitters, but I also wanted the soft shaded jellies. I can never say NO to jellies. And, glitters, too. I also am going a little “loco” for the liquid sands and textured polishes. As I speak, I am wearing a FULL mani of What Wizardry is This? Okay, enough “small talk”, let’s get to the swatches! (3 coats for each unless otherwise mentioned.)


I Theodora You is a soft delicate pink jelly/sheer. I fell in love with this one because it’s adorable and soft.


Don’t Burst My Bubble was a disappointment to me because I already own both OPI Funny Bunny AND OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu, and guess what? We.don’t.need.more.sheer.jelly.whites.OPI. But, for me, this is a basic, so I guess it’s fine. But, no more. Please. But… if I had to pick between Don’t Burst My Bubble, Funny Bunny (a true jelly) and Don’t Touch My Tutu, it’d be this one. Why? This one went on streak-free!


Glints of Glinda is what I was happy about with this collection. I needed a beige jelly. Just perfect. And, look at how it goes with my skintone for mannequin hands with just a touch of “foundation”. Love this a LOT. I could have done just one MORE coat, but it’s alright.


What Wizardry is This? is amazing. I cannot tell you how much I was dreading textured polishes, but unlike shatters, I really like this trend. I know, I know, it’s getting a little old – FAST, but if they can make UNIQUE ones, I am all over it. This one is quite the beauty. So much so that I couldn’t stop painting my nails and ended up with a full mani! I will be wearing this for a bit and I will let you know how well it lasts. Check for an edit on this page in the near future!


And, then with a top coat:


I actually preferred this without top coat and that is how I am currently wearing it.

What do you all think? Liquid Sands need to be in or out?

I look forward to hearing from all of you!

Purchased by me.


  1. I really, really want I Theodora You – looks amazing!

    • It really is! The formula on these was flawless. No hiccup of any sort. I was actually expecting a lot of streaking and pulling, but nothing of the kind! These are SO worth it and definitely can be worn ANYTIME. <3

      • I was gutted when I missed out on the New York Ballet collection last year πŸ™

        I’m currently using Essie Mademoiselle as a work-appropriate polish, but it can be so fiddly/streaky to apply.

        Instead of chocolate eggs at Easter, I may have to indulge in some OPI x

        • Oh, tell me about it. Although, I do have 2 of the Ballet ones! These definitely gave me no grief, but it could be because I had minis, but I doubt it. And, yes, OPI > Chocolate, dare I say!

  2. Ooh I love What Wizardry is This? too! I was very impressed. Sadly mine started chipping after 3 days πŸ™

  3. I love, love the textures. I know not everyone likes them, but I just love them πŸ™‚ I hope you have better luck than I have with What Wizardry Is This? It’s been extremely chippy for me. The ones from the Mariah Carey collection didn’t chip until after several days (nor did the Zoyas).

  4. Nice Blog πŸ™‚
