OPI’s Brights collection

It’s interesting to note that the collection hasn’t been added to since 2009. It’s also interesting to note that the only colors I’ve bought from this collection are the obvious layering polishes: Fireflies, Significant Other Color, Pink Before You Leap. I’d thought about buying Can’t You Sea at one point, only to decide that I’d rather pay for some backup bottles of Glacier Bay Blues. The other shades in the Brights collection are…well, a bit too bright for my personal tastes, or they’re semi- or completely sheer. The non-sheer colors veer away from primary and jeweltone, and approach neon territory. I’ll be content with the few shades I have from this collection, and leave the others for the folks who appreciate these shades a bit more.
