The OPI Fiji collection recently launched and it’s a lovely spring/summer collection with 12 bright and pastel polishes. In part 1 and part 2 of my OPI Fiji review I showed you swatches of eight polishes from the collection. In this blog post I’ll show you the last four shades!

First we have OPI Super Trip-i-cal-i-fiji-istic which is a lovely blue creme polish. What I like most about this polish is that it’s the perfect middle-tone of blue – not too dark and not too light. Also, the formula of this one was very pleasant to work with and it covered well in two coats.

This polish is OPI Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet, a super bright yellow shade. It’s a creme polish with a very thin formula – I applied three coats to get a somewhat opaque finish. I’m usually not the biggest fan of yellow but I think this polish will be a nice one for Easter.

Next up is OPI No Tan Lines. It’s a creme polish which I think will look a lot nicer in the summer with a bit of a tan. Also with this polish, the formula is quite thin. I applied three coats to get an opaque and even finish.

Lastly, we have OPI Living On The Bula-vard! which is a super bright red shade with orange undertones. When I first saw this shade I wasn’t really sure about it, but once I applied it I was hooked! It’s a creme polish which needs three coats for full opacity.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! However you spend the day I definitely think you should give your nails some extra love. Here I did a super simple Valentine’s manicure using three polishes from IsaDora’s spring 2017 collection.

To create the hearts I used nail stencils from What’s Up Nails and the polishes I used are IsaDora 544 Nude Altitude, 545 Dolce Rose and 546 Cool Mauve. The polishes are released this week and it’s actually one of my favorite collections nail polish-wise in a long time!

The OPI Fiji spring/summer 2017 collection is here! In my part 1 I showed you swatches of the first four polishes in the collection, and now I’ll show you four more! The last four swatches you’ll find in part 3.

First we have this pastel light pink called OPI Getting Nadi On My HoneymoonThis shade is a must in a spring/summer collection and it’s a really lovely color. It’s a creme polish with a very thin formula. I applied three thin coats for full coverage and it was much easier to get an even finish with this one than with Polly Wants a Lacquer? which I wrote about in part 1.

Next is OPI Suzi Without a Paddle. I LOVE this shade! It’s a perfect pastel light blue polish which I’m sure I’ll wear a lot this spring. It’s a creme polish with a similar formula as Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon – i.e. thin but easy to get even. You could get away with applying two coats of this one but for complete opacity I applied three coats.

Moving on to one of the more neutral polishes in the collection. This one is called OPI Coconuts Over OPI. It’s a nude/light brown shade which is great for an everyday manicure. This polish has a creme formula which is a bit thicker than the pastel shades. I applied two coats for full coverage.

Lastly for part 2 of my OPI Fiji review, we have OPI Is That a Spear In Your Pocket? This is a lovely summer shade and I’ve actually seen quite a few nail polish brands including this shade in their summer collections over the past couple of years. I really like the formula of this one. It covers well in two coats and it’s easy to get an even finish.
