OPI | Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection: Review and Swatches
Inspired by the colorful and vibrant capital of Japan, the OPI Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection introduces 12 fresh new shades that balance the rich traditions and modern cityscape of Tokyo. I've got reviews and swatches of all 12 shades to share with you. To read on, click......

Tempura-ture is Rising:
A bright orange with an almost neon quality, Tempura-ture is Rising is smooth and pigmented. Two coats provide a mostly even finish but I needed three on a few nails to ensure complete opacity.

How Does Your Zen Garden Grow?:
This is a pale lime green. The formulation is rather sheer so I needed three coats for an even and opaque coverage.

I'm On a Sushi Roll:
A gorgeous muted turquoise, I'm On a Sushi Roll has a creamy and smooth formulation. The polish is decently pigmented but I found the application just a tad streaky so I used three coats to attain a completely opaque coverage.

Rice Rice Baby:
One of my favorite colors from the collection, Rice Rice Baby is a dusty pale rose with a subtle hint of mauve. The polish applies darker than it appears in the bottle. Unfortunately, the formulation is a touch patchy so I needed three coats for the swatches below.

The Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection is a decent release from OPI. The color selection is heavy on pinks and purples so people who love those shades have many to choose from. I'm personally a bit disappointed with the overall formulation as many shades required three coats for an opaque and even coverage. My personal recommendations are Tempura-ture is Rising!, I'm On a Sushi Roll, and All Your Dreams in Vending Machines. Have you spotted this collection in stores yet? Which shade is your favorite?

Availability:
The OPI Tokyo Spring 2019 Collection is available in the original, GelColor, and Infinite Shine formulation starting February 1st, 2019.
