OPI Fall/Winter 2021 (Downtown LA)

The OPI Fall/winter collection is always, without a doubt, my favorite collection of the year. I was actually googling for more information about OPI’s new nature strong line, when I realized there were more new shades labeled “Downtown LA” or “DTLA”. My heart skipped a beat when I actually realized this was the new OPI Fall/Winter 2021 collection! I immediately messaged my friend Luimination_nails, and she confirmed that it indeed was real!

Like we are used to from OPI, this collection again consists of 12 new shades, inspired by Downtown Los Angeles.

The shade names I was able to recover are:

  • Violet visionary ( bold plum )
  • Abstract after dark (A glimmering blue-purple nail polish, updated version of Lincoln park after dark)
  • OPI (heart) DTLA (A dusty grey cream)
  • Angels flight to starry nights (A holographic sky-blue )
  • Isn’t it grand avenue (A deep dark blue)
  • Art walk in Suzi’s shoes (A cherry red cream)
  • 7th & flower (raspberry-pink )
  • Espresso your inner self (“coffee colored” and “auburn” according to OPI)

  • Graffiti sweetie (A light lilac)
  • My studio’s on spring (A green pine}

My opinion

For me, I’m still completely into summer colors right now, since it is still the beginning of July. It feels a bit weird to be looking at fall colors already. I can’t wait to see the first swatches of this collection though! I’m really curious whether Angels flight to starry nights is going to be holographic!


The shades are now available at Beyond Polish over here (affiliate link). This collection is also available for pre-order on Amazon over here (affiliate link). They will be shipped on the first of August. Be sure to click on “coming soon”, in the filter column if you’re not able to find them! I also ordered this collection myself, so swatches will be coming whenever I receive them!

I also ran into some more news! After the OPI Downtown LA collection, the Celebration collection will be released. I don’t have any names yet, only the picture below. Doesn’t really scream “Winter” to me, but LA winters are quite warm. It is still a wonderful color palette!

The shades in this picture are (from left to right):

  • Snow day in LA (white creme)
  • Turn bright after sunset (I personally think this is going to be a glitter, but hard to see)
  • Big Bow energy (A medium pink creme)
  • Mylar dreams (A pink glitter)
  • Maraschino Cheer-y (A red creme)
  • Turn bright after sunset(Duochrome orange/pink shimmer)
  • OPI <3 to Party (A purple creme)
  • My Color Wheel is Spinning (A lighter purple with glitter)
  • Ring in the Blue Year (medium blue creme)
  • LED Marquee (blue color, possible holographic but difficult to say at this point)
  • All is Berry & Bright (A purple-leaning light blue)
  • Ready, fête, go(A teal, possibly another holographic)

There are going to be four more shades that are not shown in the picture above. Three glitter “confetti” topcoats:

  • Cheers to mani years
  • Confetti ready
  • You had me at confetti

And another red creme (Possibly Big apple red, but I’m not sure).
