OPI Sprung Swatches & Review

OPI Sprung Swatches & ReviewOPI Sprung is a nail polish that I think is actually the perfect fall shade, even though it came out earlier this month as part of the Mariah Carey Collection.

If you are a fan of OPI Warm & Fozzie like I am, chances are that you’ll also fall head over heels for OPI Sprung as well.

No, they’re not dupes, but they have a similar duochrome metallic shimmer that’s totally blingy. (Click the above link for my review and photos of Warm & Fozzie to see what I mean. It’s more like OPI Sprung’s sibling instead of twin.)

P.S. As of today, I’ve reviewed and photographed every single nail polish in the OPI Mariah Carey Collection except for Anti-Bleak (which I don’t own)! Hmm…I probably won’t buy that because the colour doesn’t stand out to me. Then again, the lacquer collector in me is considering getting it just so that I’ll have a complete set…

Key Notes

OPI Sprung Review


Sprung by OPI is more than meets the eye at first glance. When you inspect the bottle closely, you’ll see copper, but also some gold as well. It’s this interesting combination that makes it more unique than your typical copper polish.

This is the type of shade that feels luxurious and classy. It’s bold and modern, but it’s not flashy in a trashy way.


Sprung by OPI has a high-metallic finish that’s very shimmery. The shimmer is so densely packed that it almost looks like a foil.

There wasn’t any noticeable texture. It was very smooth and perfect!

Application & Formula

The formula is very thin, but it applies beautifully pigmented! Although I used 3 coats, you only actually need 2 coats to achieve full opacity.

The reason why I used an extra coat was because I was curious if it would add more colour depth. It didn’t seem to make much of a difference, so that’s why I think you can just get away with 2 coats.

OPI Sprung goes on smoothly and pretty even – it’s perfect, actually! I loved how well it covered the nail, and it didn’t feel thick.

The only potential problem I can think of is that because it has a thin formula, using a fast-drying top coat too early may create premature tip wear. To avoid this issue, just wait a while longer before putting on your top coat. (That’s what I did.)

OPI Warm & Fozzie vs. OPI Sprung

As you can see from these side-by-side bottle photos, they’re very similar, except Sprung looks a touch redder or more copper in comparison.

If you have one, you probably don’t need the other because they’re so close.

Those who missed out on the awesomeness that was OPI Warm & Fozzie will be happy to find Sprung!

  • Smooth, pigmented, easy-to-control formula
  • Amazing metallic-shimmer finish
  • Luxurious copper & gold

  • Cons? What Cons? 😉

Final Verdict: 10/10

Yup, I gave Sprung by OPI a perfect score! I realllllly love this colour because it reminds me of the autumn, and that’s my favourite season.

If you like nail polishes that get attention without being gaudy, this is the one! 🙂 You won’t be disappointed. It looks sooooo much better in person than it does in my photos.

(Interesting little fact: The day that I photographed my manicure for this post was extremely foggy and dark. It definitely wasn’t the ideal lighting condition to capture accurate colours or finishes. So, just know that when you wear Sprung, it will look better than my photos would suggest!)

Will you spring for Sprung? (I had to phrase it like that…hehe!) What’s your favourite polish from the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection?

      Hey Lizzy!

      Sprung is a great alternative, then! And at least with Sprung, you can pay a normal retail price instead of the highly inflated ones now for the older Warm & Fozzie.

      By the way, how much did you recently see Warm & Fozzie being sold for? I haven’t really looked for it these days. I got mine when it first came out, so it was everywhere.

      Haha, I still am undecided about Anti-Bleak. On one hand, I don’t really NEED or WANT it. But, on the other hand, it’s really special (and rare) for me to have an entire set. (Since I recently splurged on the limited-edition MAC Archie’s Girls Collection, I may hold off for a long time before I buy unnecessary polish.)

    I was pretty excited for this shade and bought it, then I realized why I loved it… it’s pretty much a dupe of Jessica Pumpkin Delight when I compared them on a nail wheel. I’d keep Sprung as a backup, but I already have a backup of PD, which I adore! So overall, love this shade! But if you already have PD skip it. (PS, anyone want to buy a new bottle of Sprung? lol)

      Hey Shelby!

      Oh my goodness! Now I want to track down that Jessica polish, if only because of the name. I’m a pumpkin fiend! OH MY!

      Hey Kas!

      I don’t know if I could choose between one over the other, but I think that more people will be able to get hold of OPI Sprung for a more reasonable price than Warm & Fozzie. Love both, though! I need to remember to wear these two again in the fall!

    I love this shade! I’m normally not into this family of colors so much, but I might consider buying this one if I spot it nearby 😀 especially since I might soon have a job that will be right next to a boutique which carries OPI- a rarity in my country!

    (p.s. SORRY I haven’t replied to your question -_-;; I’ve been terrible about replying to comments. In case you still wanted to know, I’ve been playing the harp for about seven years now, since I was eighteen. My skill level doesn’t reflect that though, since I have long stretches of time where I don’t practice.)

      Hey Fedoraharp!

      Uh-oh! OPI right near your workplace? That’s both good AND verrrrrry dangerous! Haha, I can imagine on pay day, you’ll really feel the urge to swing by that store. I’m sure I would be like that! 😉

      No worries – I know that everyone has a busy schedule. 🙂 Thank you for answering my question! Wow, playing the harp for 7 years! That’s really impressive.

      I’ve always been curious – how much does it cost to buy a good harp? (I’ve never even seen any sold in person, but I’ve had to itch to strung the strings on a real one.)
