Rock Royalty Nails: 4 In The Morning by Gwen Stefani for OPI


Gwen Stefani, ultimate rock starlet/girl crush/style crush and nail supremo OPI have joined forces to create 7 rocking limited edition polishes.... talk about match-made-in-nail-heaven. The launch somehow passed me by. I made the discovery last Thursday (thank you ASOS magazine) and on Friday was wearing 4 In The Morning. Ideally I’d love the whole collection, but exercising some restraint I picked just one.
4 In The Morning is an edgy black satin. It has a black/charcoal base with a soft and very subtle silver shimmer. It dries to a funky demi-matte satin finish. In lower lighting the shade looks quite flat, but when it catches the light, the shimmer shines through. The polish transforms if you apply a top coat – the matte finish becomes glossy and shiny. I love this shade both way, it’s cool and edgy - very Gwen. The formula is quite thin for OPI, I was worried at first it might be streaky, but the second coat sorted that out. Full opacity, nice consistency, easy to apply and pretty quick drying time. I used 2 coats for the photos below. The first one is the polish only, the second with Nails Inc Caviar Top Coat.



Next on my wish list, Love Angle Music Baby and I sing in Colour. The PolishAholic has fantastic swatches of all shades here.


 OPI polishes £11.95/15ml available from John Lewis here and Lena White  here. What's your favourite?

    1. Fab! Gorgeous isn't it. Really like the look of the gold too. In fact, I want the whole collection. Thought about getting the minis but I prefer the full size brush x
