For 2014 OPI partnered with the one and only Gwen Stefani. At first when I saw the promo images I wasn’t all that excited about the collection. The colors aren’t groundbreaking but then I started thinking about it and when I think Gwen Stefani I definitely think black and red. So, instead of this collection being focused on colors it is more focused on finishes.
4 In The Morning was oddly the polish I was most excited about from this collection. As y’all probably know I’m completely obsessed with deborah lippmann Pseudo Silk Kimono which is an off white polish with a silk (or satin) finish. 4 In The Morning is an almost black gray with the slightest bit of shimmer that dries to a satin finish. The finish reminds me of a chalkboard. And it makes the perfect black counterpart to Pseudo Silk Kimono.
Application was really good. I used 3 coats in my swatches but this polish dries quickly. I used a base coat (Amour Sticky Base Coat) and no top coat.
There are swatches under the jump!
