Quickie Files: OPI Christmas Sets!

I popped into David Jones Queens Plaza (Brisbane CBD) yesterday and I noticed some new OPI Christmas sets - there are actually heaps, but here are the ones that caught my eye (and in one case, my money!)...

Mariah Carey White Gold & Silver flakie top coat ($39.95): I have the yellow gold version of this flakie top coat and it's gorgeous plus has excellent staying power, this version contains real white gold and silver flakies and I am very tempted!

There are 3 Mariah Carey trio sets - 2 mini and 1 full size. The two mini sets each contain 3 Liquid Sand polishes and cost $17.95, the full size trio is $39.95 and contains a blingy champagne glitter called My Favourite Ornament, a very deep vampy red shade called Vision of Love, and a cloudy sheer top coat with large silver holo sequin glitter called I Snow You Love Me.

The minis:

The full size trio:
Apparently there will also be a pack of 4 mini polishes for $24.95, but this was not in stock as yet.

Pack the Essentials ($79.95) is a gorgeous set with five full sized polishes - My Favourite Ornament (the champagne from the Mariah Carey set above), Bubble Bath, Tickle My France-y, Lincoln Park After Dark, and Big Apple Red - along with a full sized Start to Finish base/top coat and a cosmetics bag: This would be a lovely gift for someone just starting out with nail polish or OPI, as most of us probably have a few of these shades!

Sweet on my Beau ($29.95, full size Alpine Snow and Sweet Heart with cosmetics purse):

Top This: 3 full size top coats: one plain, one matte, and one glitter topcoat, a stunning silver/rainbow holo called Snowflakes in the Air:

Take Ten (39.95) is excellent value, a set of ten minis containing some of my favourite shades - Pirouette My Whistle, Alpine Snow, Bubble Bath, Tickle My France-y, You Don’t Know Jacques!, Cajun Shrimp, Big Apple Red, German-icure by OPI, Malaga Wine and Lincoln Park After Dark.

Fit to be Tied ($29.95, 3 different variations, includes 2 full sized polishes and 3 glitter hair ties): 

 - Duo 1: Mariah Carey Holiday Liquid Sand shades It’s Frosty Outside and Emotions 

- Duo 2: The Thrill of Brazil and Black Cherry Chutney

- duo 3: Russian Navy and, this is the one I bought - NOTD to come :)

So what do you think? Are any of these on your Christmas wish list?


  1. They are all on my wish list now.. Thanks, Christmas is going to be expensive this year! haha

  2. So many great sets! The challenging part is - which ones to choose!

  3. I don't buy many polishes but the Take Ten set looks like one I would choose. OPI is my favourite polish. Thanks for showcasing them all. x
