Oopsie Daisies Mount Olympus Collection

Today I've got the entire Oopsie Daisies Mount Olympus collection, which Cathryn kindly sent me for review. There are five colors, all inspired by and named after Greek gods and goddesses: Zeus, Demeter, Dionysus, Poseidon, and Ares.





Zeus has white glitter in a mix of sizes and shapes in a clear base. I layered 2 coats of it over Zoya Kristen, with an accent nail of 3 coats of Zeus alone (all have topcoat). One polish to rule them all—well, layer over them all. With a grey blue base like this, it reminds me of winter.





Demeter has small yellow, orange, and rust glitter in an apricot base. It's very warm and autumnal, befitting the goddess of the harvest for which it was named. I used three coats plus topcoat for this swatch, though I very nearly stopped at two coats.





Dionysus is a juicy berry with coppery shimmer, named for the god of wine. I used two coats plus topcoat.





Poseidon, god of the sea, brings us a blue jelly with white and/or blue glitter in varying sizes and shapes. This swatch is two coats plus topcoat.





Ares, named for the god of war, is a dusty green-leaning blue with both glitter and shimmer. This is also two coats plus topcoat.





I think there's a nice variety in this collection, from the shimmer of Dionysus through the small glitter of Demeter to the three larger glitter mixes, which themselves range from sheer to jelly to opaque. If I had to pick just one, it would be Ares, but fortunately I don't have to pick since they're all in my stash now.

These polishes are available at the Oopsie Daisies shop on Etsy; they're $8.50 per full size 15 ml bottle. (She's also got a Valentine's Day Duo available now, perfect for pink lovers.) Right now, if you visit the Oopsie Daisies Facebook page, you can see the contest going on to win Dionysus, Zeus, and Poseidon; that drawing is January 27th.

The polishes shown in this entry were provided free for review purposes. The content of the entry was not dictated by the provider.
