OPI - MLB Collection

Hey guys!
Back again with another OPI Collection to share with you.
This one is a collaboration with Major League Baseball, which is the US baseball association, so if you're outside the states you may not know what the heck MLB is!
I'm so not into baseball, but I've definitely spent my fair share of time at Angels Stadium when I was a kid!
Let's check these out, shall we?








Girls Love Diamonds - 3 Coats with Natural Finish
Beautiful frosty white, slightly sheer. This builds up nicely and works as a sheer, a full coverage or even as a topper over a different polish. No application problems. Not streaky.


Orange You Going To The Game? - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
Oh boy. Want to love it, hate the brushstrokes. That said, formula was aces and you can always sponge on a top layer to remove those strokes, I left them here though so you can see it as is.

Short-Stop! - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
Nice dusty burnt red creme. Great formula, seems like nothing special but I don't think I have a similar red in this tone either.

Love Athletes In Cleats - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
Beautiful! Almost the same tone as Short-Stop!, but with added pink flakie/flecks.

Umpires Come Out At Night - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
Great formula, kind of a creme-jelly hybrid but with good opacity at 2 coats.

Right Off The Bat - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
A very glowy blue, shows some brushstrokes, but not as bad as the orange.

7th Inning Strrretch - 2 Coats with Natural Finish
A stunning, dusty steel blue. Brushstrokey, but it seems to fade a bit upon drying. This was definitely my favorite of the collection.

So oeverall I'm not wowed by the collection as a whole, but I find with OPI collections that on their own, lots of the colors work as great staple colors. 2 of the blues I could probably find dupes for in my stash, but the rest are definitely unique.
