As promised, the second half of the OPI Shrek swatches. :)
OPI Funky Dunkey
An old NOTD. The name bothers me. Why not "Funky Dunky" or "Funkey Dunkey". I like consistency. Gorgeous dark (but vibrant) purple creme. (Excuse the finish in this photo: I just put on lotion, which is why it looks shiny and almost shimmery.) The application was not great at all: it was a bit too thick and refused to even out in three coats. Not pleased.
This is one of my favorite yellows of late: it's buttery with a slight green cast, which makes it stand out in my rather extensive collection of yellow cremes. Good application for a yellow: the above shows three coats and it was perfectly glossy and smooth even without topcoat.
Great azure creme. I struggled with the application with this one: it was opaque in two coats but I think I got waaay too much polish on the brush for the second coat and it started dripping off my nail. (Basically, my fault.)
My feelings on this collection are mixed. On one hand, all of these have existing close dupes (and other bloggers, being more organized than myself, have showcased these) so you don't really need to buy any of them. On the other hand... I LOVE this as a whole collection. Together, they are just such gorgeously well-coordinated colors and they come as such a visually pleasing unit. Which is not a reason to pay retail for all six but if you can get them for below retail and are a hoarder/collector of nail polish, it's a "must have" as a collection.
If you have an extensive collection of nail polish already (and own some of the identified dupes), you don't need any of these. However, if you have too much nail polish and want to buy more, buy this entire set. ...weird advice, I know. But that's how I feel towards this collection.
