Hi everyone! Miami is still very much in Summer weather so the collection I’m sharing today is perfect. This is the OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection.
This 6 piece set of dusty muted tone cremes is giving me major 60’s vintage vibes. I added Seche Vive top coat to every swatch. Let’s take a look at each one.
This is a gorgeous orangey coral. Excellent formula. Creamy and super pigmented. Opaque in 2 coats. LOVE it!!
FLIP FLOPS & CROP TOPS
This is a soft bubblegum pink. This one was a little uneven but smooths out in 2 coats.
WHERE’S THE DOUBLE SCOOP?
This is a soft ballet slipper pink. This one was a streaker! Super streaky and uneven. It took 3 coats to cover the patchiness.
I’M GETTING A TAN-GERINE
This is a delicious peachy apricot-y creamsicle. I love this color so so much! The formula, not so much. Another streaker but I don’t mind doing the 3 coats to get the end result!
TOWEL ME ABOUT IT
This is a light pastel yellow. This one was also streaky and watery. Even and opaque in 2.5 coats.
SAILING & NAIL-ING
This is a baby blue. Also streaky 🙁 Sadly most of these formulas were not easy peasy and took about 3 coats to even out.
My favorites from the bunch were SPF XXX and I’M GETTING A TAN-GERINE. I wasn’t crazy about the formulas with this collection, but the colors are beautiful. Are you curious about possible DUPES for this collection? Check out my YouTube video where I show you comparisons side by side as well as live swatching:
This collection is available now at ULTA or Sally Beauty Supply for $10 USD per bottle. You can also find them online on eBay or Amazon. OPI is 3 FREE so it doesn’t contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, or DBP. Not all of OPI’s polishes are 3 FREE but it is said that after 2006 all are 3 FREE. It’s best to check labels if you have a concern. OPI is sold at beauty supply stores, Ulta, Target, drugstores, and Amazon or eBay.
