OPI - Oz The Great and Powerful Review

Hello everyone! Today I have some swatches of the latest and greatest OPI collection inspired by the movie Oz: The Great and Powerful (the prequel to the Wonderful Wizard of Oz movie). The movie looks awesome and I can't wait to see it! I love how they are giving typical fairytale movies a dark fantasy twist to them :) But anyway we all want to know about the collection that OPI is bringing out! It is super fun and I'm happy to show you 3 awesome glitters! All photos below are shown without any topcoat.

First up is Lights of Emerald City*, which is a clear base filled with square white glitters and smaller square iridescent glitters (drooooool). The look shown here is 2 coats of China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy (reviewed here) followed by 1 coat of Lights Of Emerald City*, which by the way was super easy to apply and I didn't have to fish out the larger white squares! This combination looked seriously amazing!

Secondly is Which is Witch?* I love the name of this polish. It is also a clear base filled with tons of small holographic bar glitters and small holographic hex glitters which gives your nails an insane sparkle to them. I needed a fine glitter like this for so long and I will definitely be using this one to add some pizaz to my mani's! The combination shown here is 2 coats of Essie - To Buy Or Not To Buy followed by 1 coat of Which is Witch?*. Very easy to apply and no need to fish glitters out!

Thirdly and lastly is When Monkeys Fly!* A clear base filled with micro and slightly larger holographic hex glitters and very huge and chunky gold hex glitters which a slightly curled. Now I know some people wanted to steer clear on this polish because of that exact reason but I can't pass up a glitter when I see one! This polish is super easy to work with, just like the two above and I loved the contrast of size and colour glitters in the polish. The combination below is 2 coats of Essie - Where's My Chauffer? (reviewed here) followed by 1 coat of When Monkeys Fly!*.

I love these glitters! They are so fun and quirky and are quite unique! What do you think of these? Will you be picking up any colours from the new collection? Thanks for reading and have a good day!

OPI Oz the Great and Powerful will be available from mid February at selected salons, David Jones and Myer stores, RRP $19.95. For more information on stockists check


  1. Which is Witch is really pretty but OH MY!! ...
    When Monkeys Fly!! Now I like a good glitter for sure but there is no way in the world I could call this a good glitter ... those curly taco bits are just soooo wrong on so many levels.

  2. Hahah they do remind me of tacos now that you say that! I still liked the way it looked though, even if I wore it for only half a day haha :P

  3. Love them all! The lights of Emerald City looks amazing with Flip Flop Fantasy! I need to buy it just to recreate that combo. Great choice!

  4. Thanks!! It looked so pretty and would look really cool with a matte topcoat too!
