OPI Fiji Summer 2017 Swatches and Review
For Summer 2017, OPI is jetting us off to the beautiful islands of Fiji! Filled with stunning sparkling blues and bold sunny creams, the OPI Fiji Collection is brimming with colors and fun. All 12 shades are available in the Infinite Shine, GelColor, and the original Nail Lacquer formulation. To see some swatches and read my review of each shade, click......

Living On the Bula-vard!:
A bright orange-red, Living On the Bula-vard! is your essential summer nail color. The pigmentation is superb and the formulation is a simple two-coater.

Living On the Bula-vard! | Two Coats with No Top Coat
No Tan Lines:
This is a sunny orange cream. The formulation is sheer and slightly patchy, which is a tad disappointing. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet:
Yellow polishes are never easy to formulate and this one isn't anything extraordinary. The sheer formulation is patchy but not awful. With that said, I still needed three coats to obtain an acceptable coverage.

Two-Timing the Zones:
A pretty medium pink, Two-Timing the Zones is a lot sheerer than I expected. For a color like this, the formulation is surprisingly patchy and uneven. I needed three coats for the swatches below and I still wasn't very happy with the coverage it provided.

Polly Want A Lacquer:
A soft lavender pastel, Polly Want A Lacquer (love the name!) is surprisingly not super sheer. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon:
A soft pale baby pink, this shade is a bit sheer and patchy so I needed three coats for a full coverage.

Is That a Spear In Your Pocket:
Hands down my favorite shade out of the bunch, this is a gorgeous dark teal. Rich and pigmented, the formulation is top-notch as well. I used two coats for the swatches below.

I Can Never Hut Up:
A soft elephant gray with a subtle hint of opalescent shimmers, I Can Never Hut Up is smooth and even. Two coats were enough for a nice and opaque coverage.

Coconuts Over OPI:
This is a sophisticated taupe-beige with a pleasantly pigmented formulation. I used two coats below for a very smooth and even coverage.

Do You Sea what I Sea:
One of the only two non-creams in this collection, Do You Sea What I Sea is a stunning blue shimmer with a subtle blue/purple color shift. The pigmentation is on the sheerer side but the consistency is nice and even. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Suzi Without a Paddle:
A pale powder blue, this shade was surprisingly well-formulated. Despite being such a light color, the pigmentation was nice and even so I only needed two coats for an opaque coverage.
