So the shades I chose to go with are those pictured in the photo above (clockwise from the top right corner: My Gecko does tricks, Suzi shops and island hops, Lost my bikini in molokini, This color is making waves, and Just Lanai-ing around(middle)). While all of the rest of the shades in the collection were just as lovely, I already had similar shades in my polish collection so I chose to not be redundant in my personal purchases. On to the swatches!
Ok, so first off we have Suzi Shops & Island Hops. This shade is a very pale creme pink. The shade itself may be pale but that does not reflect in the polishes opacity. I only used two reasonable coats here to obtain full nail coverage. As with all my past experience with OPI the polish is very smooth and has a good consistency resulting in a smooth error free application. If you are looking for a good classic pale pink for Spring I would definitely check out this shade.
Next up we have Just Lanai-ing Around. I was drawn to this color honestly because it reminded me of my childhood growing up in the 90's. For me personally since my family was in to tole painting and arts and crafts I was around a lot of paint and colors. The color Dusty Rose was VERY popular in that decade and I grew to love the color so this shade was a must buy for me as it is a perfect reflection of that color. This polish is a rich mid pink creme that evokes being in the middle of a summer garden. Application is smooth and flawless and only two thin coats are necessary to get full nail coverage. This is definitely one of my top three shades for the collection for sure.
Next we have Lost my Bikini in Molokini which is another creme shade from the collection. This shade is very much a true grape purple in my mind. If you already own Do You Have This Color in Stockholm from the Nordic collection by OPI, just imagine that purple but one to two shades lighter. It is absolutely beautiful and applies easily with good coverage. This purple is very pigmented and adds a bright POP of color perfect for Spring and Summer.
Well guys, I hope you have enjoyed this post, and that it helps you make informed decisions about any purchases you may have been thinking about from this collection. If I pick up any more shades I will be sure to swatch and review them as well :) Until next time lacquer lovers, have a great day and I look forward to you stopping by next time!
