OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazilian is, as you'd expect from something with that name and from the "Brazil Collection", the kind of pink that just sings summer. It's a bright, bordering on neon, Barbie pink. So naturally, I love it.
I always like using OPI cream formulas, and this one is particularly good, it just seems to glide on so easily. I find that almost all the OPI cream formulas tend to level out well and dry slowly enough to allow for a few extra brush strokes to even out any iffy brushstrokes without dragging. The really great thing is you can add second coats and third coats in fairly rapid succession without creating a manicure that never dries. (I'm looking at you Essie) Don't you hate those?! This polish actually only required two coats, and you'd possibly get away with only one if your application was extremely careful. As I mentioned last Monday, I'm making an effort to do more nail art again. So, sticking to my word, I got out China Glaze I'm Not Lion and the nail tape for a little playtime.

So what do you think of the results? I love it, and whilst it's certainly not a subtle manicure, I think it's perfect for summer and my mini-break by the pool this week....don't hate me too much please! ;)
Did you try any of the OPI Brazil Collection polishes? (You can see them here on OPI.com) I also really like the look of the Taupeless Beach and Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, which are both much more neutral grey/taupe shades. Which would be your pick?
