OPI’s Canadian collection

When I started buying OPI polishes, I was drawn to Mauving to Manitoba. I liked the mauve-rose color, and the metallic shimmer was a bonus. I didn’t realize that it was part of an entire collection. (I know. Hopelessly naive. That changed in a hurry…) The colors in this were definitely a mix: neutrals, semisheers, reds, some off-beat shades like Quebec and Call’s bronzed green; and of course, blue and purple.

This collection contained:

  • At Your Quebec And Call — metallic antiqued gold-green shimmer
  • Canadian Maple Leaf — deep burgundy shimmer
  • Chocolate Moose — light chocolate-brown creme
  • Don't Wine Yukon Do It — deep cool red shimmer
  • Glacier Bay Blues — deep peacock-teal creme
  • Mauving to Manitoba — cool rose mauve shimmer
  • Niagara Falls for OPI — mocha-coral shimmer
  • Nice Color, Eh — metallic soft cool rose shimmer
  • Paint your Toron-Toes Rose — metallic soft warm rose shimmer
  • Polar Bare — semisheer peach-pink nude creme
  • Van-couvered in Snow — semisheer white frost with green and blue iridescent shimmer
  • You Ottaware Purple — semisheer eggplant purple shimmer

A few of these shades are part of the permanent line now, but many more are now only available on Ebay.
