Hi pretty polishers! Today I’m sharing with you the huge and beautiful Spring/Summer 2017 FIJI Collection by OPI.
This spring, OPI heads to Fiji – the perfect destination to live out your color fantasy. Featuring a palette that incorporates the vibrant hues of the islands’ flora – most notably the sweetly fragrant exotic flowers – with the colors of the sea – from blue lagoons to coral reefs – the Fiji Collection by OPI takes consumers on a journey to one of the most beautiful places in the world. OPI captures the essence of Fiji with its collection inspired by the land – from the ever-changing blues of the endless ocean to the bright pops of color found in the islands’ native flora and fauna. Long stretches of palm-lined, sandy beaches and bold, vibrant sunsets add to the collection’s tropical flair. The Fiji Collection embraces color and captures the essence of the lush, unspoiled terrain – evoking an emotional response and offering a spiritual connection to the environment.
This is a 12 piece set with and additional 3 shades that are exclusive to ULTA. The collection was inspired by the vibrant hues and tropical flowers of FIJI, an island in the South Pacific that I have always dreamed of visiting! One day I hope to make my dream come true. The set is made up mostly of cremes with the exception of 2 shimmers. Let’s take a look at these beauties.
LIVING ON THE BULA-VARD!
This is a hot orangey red creme. This one has a fantastic formula. It’s a tiny patchy on the 1st coat, but covers perfectly on the second coat. Super juicy and delicious!
TWO-TIMING THE ZONES
This is a blue-based bubblegum pink creme. It’s a bit patchy so it took me 2-3 coats to cover the nail entirely. This one is so gorgeous and perfect for Summer.
NO TAN LINES
This is a beautiful vibrant tangerine orange creme. LOVE LOVE LOVE! This beauty had a phenomenal formula. Opaque in 2 easy coats. It looks great on my skin tone. Thank you to OPI for sending me this single polish for review. I loved it so much I just had to purchase the rest of the collection!
EXOTIC BIRDS TO NOT TWEET
This is a bright canary yellow creme. It was a bit streaky on the first coat but covers up nicely on the second coat which is surprising for a yellow. It was pigmented and had a great formula!
I CAN NEVER HUT UP
This is a cement grey with iridescent subtle green/blue shimmer. Great formula! Opaque in 2 easy coats. Shimmer is subtle but so gorgeous.
COCONUTS OVER OPI
This is a taupe/beige nude creme. Excellent formula! So beautiful and juicy. I love nudes like these to wear year-round! This is 2 coats.
GETTING NADI ON MY HONEYMOON
This is a pale light pink creme. The formula isn’t the best. Streaky and patchy. I had to do 3 coats to get it opaque and even but I’m picky and don’t’ like seeing streaks.
POLLY WANT A LACQUER?
This is a light lavender creme. It’s a bit streaky as well. I did 2.5 coats for full opacity.
SUZI WITHOUT A PADDLE
This is a pale baby blue creme. These are the more pastel Spring-shades of the collection. This one was streaky but not as bad as the other two polishes. This is 2 coats.
IS THAT A SPEAR IN YOUR POCKET?
This is a medium teal creme. Gorgeous!! Amazing formula. It was almost opaque in 1 coat but I saw some minor patchiness so I did 2 coats to cover completely. Love this color! Luckily this polish did not stain, but keep in mind my nails don’t stain easily.
WOW! What a name! LOL This is a deep cobalt blue creme. ONE COATER!!! I knew there had to be a one coater somewhere in this massive collection. This one is it! Great buttery formula and did not stain.
DO YOU SEA WHAT I SEA?
This is a gorgeous cerulean blue shimmer. Great formula! A bit sheer on the first coat but covers nicely on the second coat. Super easy to remove as well. No shimmery mess.
These were sold only at ULTA stores. I purchased mine in store for $10 USD each.
HAND ME MY SUNGLASSES
This is a gorgeous melon/coral creme. Even though this baby is a 3 coater, I’m still in love. Colors like these make me melt!
TROPI-CAL ME ON MY CELL
This is a pale pastel lime creme. Super sheer on the first coat. This one was a 3-4 coater. Mehhh! Not the best formula but so so pretty.
NAILS OF PARADISE
This is a light orchid creme. ONE COATER! Well at least there was a good one from the trio. This one had a wonderful formula!

All of these shades are beautiful however they are not unique or different. OPI has dupes/similar shades for all of the polishes in this collection. My friend Phoebe has a great DUPES video up on her YouTube channel that you can check out here in case you are interested.

Purchase Fiji Collection Nail Lacquer here
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. FTC: I received “No Tan Lines” complimentary from OPI. All opinions are 100% my own #gifted #honestreview #octolyfamily. I purchased the other 14 polishes myself.
My favorites from the bunch were No Tan Lines and Hand Me My Sunglasses. Which one was your favorite?
