Sand and sun, summer has begun!

SPF XXX | Wow this is a bright colour! It's a borderline neon orange coral - perfect for summer. OPI always has some sort of bright orange in their summer collections. This one's pretty high up on the eye-blinding side. 2 Coats for opacity, but could have used 3 for less smile line visibility.

What's The Double Scoop? | This one is a light peachy pink strawberry creme that reminds me of pink lemonade. I am a huge fan of pastel pink cremes and this is no exception. Really cute and pretty for summer. 2 coats was enough for this one to be opaque.

I'm Getting A Tan-Gerine | This one is... not my favourite, but it's a peachy yellowy orange. It doesn't work too well with my skin tone but I can definitely see it looking amazing on darker skin. 2 coats for opacity.

Flip Flops And Crop Tops | This one is a medium warm-toned pink creme that screams summer sorbet. Actually, this whole collection reminds me of cute gelato parlours and sunhats. The formulation on this one was good and only took 2 coats for maximum opacity.

Sailing & Nailing | This is a really icy, bright powder blue. I thought this was really cute and wearable. That said, I'm always more partial to blues. The formulation on this one wasn't as smooth and you can see a tad of streaking after 2 coats.

Towel Me About It | I am not usually a fan of yellows, but this one is pretty cute. I like how it's mute enough to not be blindingly yellow, but not so muted that it looks like a white polish got really stained. This one was the perfect in between. Another bonus to this one was a that it wasn't streaky (as most yellows are)!


The Retro Summer Collection for Summer 2016 is available now in salons and spas.
