I just have to say….I love the name of this polish. The play on words is amazing and that is the main reason I ended up with this polish. So when I start complaining about the color I do realize it’s entirely my fault!
Anyway. As the name would suggest, I São Paulo Over There is from OPI’s Spring 2014 Brazil collection. I wasn’t overly enthusiastic about this particular OPI collection but I was pleasantly surprised by Live.Love.Carnaval and Next Stop…The Bikini Zone. Unfortunately, I São Paulo Over There didn’t impress me.
I São Paulo Over There is just as OPI describes it; a mocha-toned creme. To this polish’s credit, São Paulo is a lovely neutral polish that would look great on most skintones. Plus, the formula is wonderful. I used just two coats in my swatches.
Personally, I find this polish dreadfully boring. If I’m going for a brown toned neutral I like to go darker like L’Oreal Liya’s Nude. But I will admit this made a lovely base for a fun glitter manicure!
Of course, this is all just personal preference! If you’re in the market for a polish in this color range I would recommend I São Paulo Over There.
The OPI Brazil collection is currently available in stores and online at Ulta.com.
