Here's the bunch:
|OPI Fiji collection - Spring/Summer 2017|
I swatched the lightest colours first - just in case that some of the darker colours would stain my cuticles :D
Please note that I'm wearing a layer of topcoat on all of my swatches.
First one up is Coconuts over OPI:
|Coconuts over OPI, 2 coats|
A soft creamy taupe. Easy application, covered in two coats. It's not my colour but I can see that I could actually wear this if I wanted to.
Moving on to Suzi without a Paddle:
|Suzi without a Paddle, 2 coats|
It's a pale blue creme. I used two coats for this mani, but I should have used three. It's streaky so you don't want to put too big a pressure on that brush when you apply.
Polly want a Lacquer?:
|Polly want a Lacquer?, 2 coats|
A soft lilac creme. It's sheer, it's thin and it's streaky. This is two coats but I should have applied a third coat really. It's a nice colour even though the formula didn't impress me.
Getting Nadi on my Honeymoon:
|Getting Nadi on my Honeymoon, 3 coats|
A soft pink creme. This acts just like its sister above. Thin, streaky and sheer formula. I used three coats for my mani and I still wasn't fully satisfied! Grr!
No Tan Lines:
|No Tan Lines, 3 coats|
A bright orange creme. I love the colour. The formula acted up a bit streaky so I had to apply three coats to even it all out. The polish dries up at least one tone darker than it looks in the bottle.
Exotic Birds do not Tweet:
|Exotic Birds do not Tweet, 4 coats|
A bright yellow creme and a true diva - like many other of her yellow sisters. The formula was super streaky and I ended up with four coats before I was happy with it. It's a bright happy colour though, but for the patient girls :D
Two-Timing the Zones:
|Two-Timing the Zones, 2 coats|
A super sweet pink creme. This one has a great formula that just glides onto the nails effortlessly. I used two easy coats for this mani. The colour is just amazing!
Living on the Bula-Vard:
|Living on the Bula-Vard, 2 coats|
Bright juicy coral. Holy moly, what a great looking polish! I used two easy coats for my mani and had no issues with the formula.
I can never Hut up!:
|I can never Hut up!, 2 coats|
Grey with turqouise shimmer, OPI calls it iridescent. The formula is good, and I ended up with only two coats. I love the shimmer but unfortunately it's shy in ordinary daylight.
I had to take a photo with flash to make the shimmer pop for you:
|I can never Hut up!, 2 coats, macro shot|
Is that a Spear in your Pocket?:
|Is that Spear in your Pocket?, 2 coats|
Teal leaning green creme. The formula is great and I used two easy coats for my swatch. The colour is really good, and I wish all OPI's polishes had a formula like this.
|Super Trop-i-cal-i-fiji-istic, 2 coats|
Bright blue creme. And ha, they spelled the name wrong on my bottle: Super Trip-i-cal-i-fiji-istic. I kind of like that better :D The formula is great and so is the coverage. Two coats is what it took. I am really pleased with this polish, even though I don't really want to say the name out loud!
Do you Sea what I Sea?:
|Do you Sea what I Sea?, 2 coats|
Bright blue shimmer. Ooh, I love this. The formula is good and I got full coverage in two coats. It's really bright and happy!
Which one is your favourite of these?
