Featuring 12 vibrant and playful colors that are perfect for the warmer weather ahead, the collection is all about self-expression. I've got full reviews and swatches of the collection to share with you today. To read on, click......

¡Viva OPI!:
This is a bright red cream with a strong orange undertone. The formulation is super pigmented and creamy. One coat provides a mostly opaque coverage but I used two for the swatches below.

Mural Mural on the Wall:
My favorite from this collection, this is a unique translucent soft coral scattered with pale gold glitter flakes. The formulation is sheer but even. I used two coats in the swatches below and I love how the sheerness gives a layered look that adds a lot of dimensions to the glitters.

Coral-ing Your Spirit Animal:
A pale peach cream, Coral-ing Your Spirit Animal is fairly sheer. I needed three coats to obtain an even and opaque coverage.

Don't Tell A Sol:
Yellow polishes are notoriously difficult to formulate so it's hard to find a good one. Unfortunately, this pale buttercup yellow is sheer and patchy so I needed three coats to obtain an even coverage.

Suzi's Slinging Mezcal:
A pretty sandy gold shimmer made with pale gold and silver sparkles, Suzi's Slinging Mezcal is sheer but even. Two coats provide a mostly opaque coverage.

Verde Nice to Meet You:
A gorgeous muted light teal, Verde Nice to Meet You is decently pigmented but patchy. With a skillful application, you can probably get away with just two coats but I needed three to obtain a full coverage.

Mexico City Move-Mint:
This is a very pale baby blue. The formulation is unfortunately sheer and runny; I had a lot of trouble with the application as the polish kept on pooling around my cuticles. I needed three coats for the swatches below and there was still some minor patchiness.

Hue is the Artist?:
Another unfortunately sheer and runny shade, Hue is the Artist? is a very pale lavender cream. Similar to Mexico City Move-mint, the formulation is extremely difficult to apply. At least three coats are needed

Overall, this is a fun spring collection! With a theme like Mexico City, I was honestly expecting a few more bolder, brighter colors as opposed to some of the pale pastels. The formulation is very hit or miss so unless you don't mind a sheer polish, I would steer clear of Mexico City Move-mint, Don't Tell A Sol, Coral-ing your Spirit Animal, and Hue is the Artist!. My personal recommendations are Mural Mural On the Wall, Verde Nice to Meet You, Telenovela About It, and Mi Casa Es Blue Casa. Do any of these shades catch your eyes?
