Do you remember back in August when I wrote a post about this collection, and how excited I was for it? Well as you can see I FINALLY have my hands on the collection and since getting it I have loved it so much!
My Mom knew how much I wanted this set and on a shopping trip out she spotted it and picked it up for me, which I am quite pleased about as I didn’t even see it in the shop she bought it from! My Mom is so lovely when it comes to little things and since university started she has seen how stressed and tired I am lately, so her buying me this was just so sweet of her. What are Mom’s for though?
She didn’t tell me how much she paid for it but I’ve seen this for sale online for nearly £12.00, which isn’t cheap but personally I feel it’s worth it, especially as I was planning to buy this next week after being paid but alas, I don’t have to now.
I knew I had my eye on two of the shades from this collection, those being the glitter polishes which are called Where’s My Blanket??? and To Be or Not To Beagle. When I was swatching these and taking pictures I was super excited about applying them to my nails as they’re such fun shades for Halloween, as well as autumn.
Also I want to just say how cute is this little picture on the box? As well as the cartoon on the left hand side of the front? I love the packaging for this and I won’t be throwing it away anytime soon!
As you can see you get your four nail polishes, all in 3.75ml – 1/8 Fl. Oz. which is the standard size for the 4 pack of nail polishes. BUT as well as your polishes you also get some nail art decals which are super cute and I WON’T be using them anytime soon. They’re too cute to use.
The names of the four shades (from L-R) are:
Good Grief! – The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favourite t-shirt.
Where’s My Blanket??? – Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.
WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? – This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.
And finally To Be or Not To Beagle – Snoopy’s happy-dance of colours in a joyful glitter.
I’ll go into further detail about each polish after each swatch!
Good Grief! Is a sunny yellow nail polish with a cream finish and really is bright! It reminds me of the sort of shade I would wear as a young teenager during the summer with glitter polish on top! This will work wonderfully with Where’s My Blanket??? applied on top for an autumn feel. I found when applying this it was a tad on the streaky side but I think that’s just a personal issue. I’ve painted my nails with two coats on these images. It’s a very pigmented colour and looks lovely! I won’t lie though, out of the four shades this is my least favourite and isn’t really a shade I would opt to wear on a day-to-day basis. I painted this on my toes when I first got the set and it looked like I had jaundice… Not a good look!
Where’s My Blanket??? Is a wonderful glitter polish with various different sizes of black glitter throughout, as well as bigger pieces of cream yellow and orange glitter too. This is a perfect glitter polish for autumn due to the yellow and orange glitter throughout and would look perfect over a light or dark cream brown shade and due to that I can see me wearing this a lot this autumn season. As well as that this will also work perfectly over the top of Good Grief and WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? which I can see me doing in the future. This is a really easy glitter polish to apply and it dried really quickly too! On my nails I painted two coats, although if I wanted more glitter pay off I could have painted another coat. I currently have this on my toes and it looks really pretty. This is definitely my second favourite in the set!
WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? This is the perfect black nail polish! It’s a gorgeous cream black with gel like shine and is probably one of the best black nail polishes I’ve ever had and trust me, I’ve had a lot! I grew up wearing nothing but nail polish from the age of 14 until about 21 and I really do miss wearing black nail polish. It’s such a bold shade that you can team anything with and this is no exception. I painted two coats of this on my nails and that was more than enough as this is such a strong and pigmented black. This will work wonders with both Where’s My Blanket??? and To Be or Not To Beagle painted over the top which I wanted to wear this week, but due to work it would be a bit much so sadly I just had to stick with one of the glitters. I can see me wearing this a lot over winter more than autumn as with glitter polishes over the top it will be wonderful! This is also my second favourite polish as it’s just such a wonderful black! Well done to OPI for this one.
To Be or Not To Beagle this is such a fun nail polish and I don’t think I have ever seen a glitter polish like it to date. It contains small and large pieces of black glitter, as well as strips of black glitter BUT it also contains large pieces of rainbow glitter which just makes me happy! This glitter is just like a punch in the face for how different it is from most glitter polishes out there and I already know I want a standard sized bottle of this. This is two coats on my nails and I could have carried on to make sure I had loads of glitter packed onto each nail but two seemed like a good number. This will work perfectly over the top of various coloured polishes but I think it would work nicely on top of both Good Grief! and WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? Most of all I really want to try this over a white cream or a nude nail polish as I think it would look so pretty, especially for winter. My favourite out of the collection by far and I have it on my nails right now. Oh by the way, I couldn’t pick two pictures for this polish as I just wanted to show off how many different colours are in the glitter!
My overall opinion of this collection? A lovely collection for Halloween, even though an orange polish would have worked better than a yellow… In my opinion anyway!
The glitter polishes work perfectly, especially Where’s My Blanket due to the orange and yellow glitter and it will definitely be my nail polish for autumn now.
I personally feel they could have done more with this collection but alas they have so many collections coming out at the moment that they probably didn’t want to go overboard, which is fine.
I was super excited for this collection and has it been worth the wait? HELL YEAH! I love the collection so much and for the rest of autumn I’m probably set now for when I fancy wearing something nice.
My favourite in the set is definitely To Be or Not To Beagle and my least favourite was Good Grief!
Was it worth the money my Mom paid? I would say so yes! If you know someone who loves Halloween and they also have a birthday in October or just after Halloween then this will be the perfect present for them I think Or even someone who loves Peanuts like I do. This is something special to add to my collection and it’ll be loved very much.
So, what do you think of the Peanuts Collection? Will you be buying it?
