OPI Taupe-less Beach Swatches & Review

OPI Taupe-less Beach Swatches & ReviewOkay, so you know that I’m all about the bold nail colours, but I can appreciate softer hues, too. In fact, sometimes wearing classy shades is a much-needed and refreshing change.

Recently, I wore OPI Taupe-less Beach, which is from the OPI Brazil Collection that I’m crazy about! (Seriously, if you haven’t tried any of the shades from this collection, you’re missing out on one of the most exciting releases in a long time!)

And if you’re a fellow Canadian, remember to enter for your chance to win the entire OPI Brazil Collection in my giveaway that ends February 28.

Also, if you have a moment, please take the time to vote for me until February 25 by tweeting and/or retweeting my Nicole Challenge manicure. Click that link to read the details.

Key Notes

OPI Taupe-less Beach Review


Taupe-less Beach by OPI isn’t like your ordinary garden variety because there’s a slight purple undertone to it that makes it more interesting.

There’s something very classy about taupe in general, but this purple tinge is what gives it some edginess.

I don’t have too many soft shades like this in my collection, but now my lacquer ears are up, and I’m curious to try more. It’s definitely colour territory worth exploring!


A creme finish like this is magical because it goes on smoothly.

OPI sure knows what they’re doing because Taupe-less Beach is so dreamy and creamy, Dr. Seuss! 😉

Application & Formula

Application is a breeze, and you only need 2 coats to fully cover your nails. Perfection!


  • Gorgeous taupe with a hint of purple
  • Smooth, creamy formula
  • 2 coats to reach full opacity


  • If there’s a Con, it escapes me!

Final Verdict: 9/10

Although Taupe-less Beach by OPI strays outside my comfort zone, I was surprised that I loved it so much! (Yes, I’m Swatching and Learning!) 😉

How would you wear this shade? What colour have you tried that was outside your usual comfort zone? Which is your favourite hue from the OPI Brazil Collection?

      Hey Melissa!

      It’s a really unique shade in my collection, so I think you’ll really enjoy it. Please let me know what you think after you’ve worn it!

    So pretty 🙂 I like how it has such a strong purple undertone. It does really suit your skintone. I’ve picked up the lightest of the nude shades from this collection, Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around. Plus 4 other ones, haha 😀

      Hey Renee!

      The purple undertone is what really drew me to this colour. A lot of taupes tend to have more brown or grey undertones, so it’s neat to see one with more purple.

      Aww, thanks! I don’t wear soft shades like this often, but I may try more out because I’m starting to really like them!

    Mary, do you have OPI Berlin there done that? I am still considering buying OPI Taup-less beach, but I already have Berlin.
