OPI So So Skullicious Mini Nail Collection For Halloween

Happy Friday!  I went back and forth as to whether or not I needed this mini Halloween set from OPI.  I have an intense dislike of OPI mini's (just OPI...other brands are fine with me). Maybe it's the way that they don't label the name on them, or maybe they just seem smaller to me? Or perhaps I usually end up loving the colors and there's ultimately not enough product inside to satiate me?  Well, I got over all that and decided to buy the set, even despite the fact that the colors are pretty common.  I don't know why, but I just NEEDED it all of the sudden! The set comes with some nail decals as well (which I forgot to take a picture of)!


Here's "Candlelight", a jelly-ish yellow that reminded me of Julep Daisy.  Very much on the sheer side, I used 4 layers here:

"Hi Pumpkin!" is a very pretty, creamy orange. This was 3 layers:

"Mourning Glory", a black creme with jelly tendencies ;-)  3 layers here:

And lastly, "A-rose From The Dead".  A beautiful pop of hot pink! This was the color that I was most excited about. I honestly don't have another pink just like this, and I'm getting anxious about the thought of using this tiny bottle up too quickly!  HELP! 3 Layers:

As I said, I forgot to take a picture of all the decals (I think there are about 10?), but I did use one here:
 These are water decals, so once your polish dries, you cut out the design you want, let it soak in warm water for 10 seconds, then gently slip it off and onto your nail (I ripped a teeny bit off on the bottom of this one...oops!). I thought they would be hard to use, but it was quite simple. You put top coat over and you are good to go!

What do you think of this set?  Do you hate mini's as much as I do?

  1. I really like this set! The colours themselves aren't all that earth-shattering (I think they're re-brands of older colours?), but the little stickers totally pull them all together so well. Loving that pink too--I'm on the hunt for a dupe now!

    Yeah, the OPI minis...I love the concept of being able to try out a colour without investing in a full bottle, but those teeny brushes really frustrate me. >_<

    1. I hope that the pink has a twin somewhere! That would make my day ;)

  2. The decals are really cool. And that pink is awesome...although so random for fall...

  3. I avoid OPI minis too - my hands feel gargantuan holding the tiny bottles and miniature brushes, lol! Even though the black & orange are traditional Halloween colours in this set, it's nice that OPI threw in the other 2 shades as well. Considering I don't usually lean in a "pink" direction, I have to say that I'm totally loving this one here - and the name! Too funny! Gorgeous swatches, my friend!

  4. I do love this set, especially the stickers, but I HATE their minis, so I did not buy this :(

  5. I didn't get any of these, but would love it if they sold just the pink!

  6. For the most part, I avoid minis too. I think this set is cute but I passed on it.
