OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection Review

Recently, I shared the OPI Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection and because my nails hadn’t had enough swatching, this week I’m back with the bright and pastel shades of the OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection. There are six new, limited edition shades in the OPI Retro Summer lineup and I’ve swatched them all for you! You can thank my cuticles for their sacrifice when you get the chance.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI Flip Flops & Crop Tops Swatch

OPI Flip Flops & Crop Tops is a bright pink creme with an excellent formula. It’s pretty opaque in two coats, and doesn’t have that streaky finish a lot of neon-esque shades do.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI I'm Getting A Tan-Gerine Swatch

OPI I’m Getting A Tan-Gerine is a yellow-toned peach creme. It’s a bit uneven on my ridged nails, but still looks pretty good with two coats. Definitely have to be a bit careful with this formula though.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI Sailing & Nailing SwatchOPI Sailing & Nailing is a pastel blue creme with a fairly sheer formula, although buildable. I used 2-3 coats because it was a bit uneven, but should have gone for 3 coats on all nails (you can tell I only used 2 on my ring finger!)

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI SPF XXX SwatchOPI SPF XXX is a neon coral orange that’s nearly opaque with one coat, but it does need two. However, the formula was good and the shade is just so bright and perfect for summer.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI Towel Me About It SwatchOPI Towel Me About It is a soft pastel yellow creme. While the formula was sheer and streaky with 1 coat, it worked out pretty nicely with 2, especially considering it’s a yellow and a pastel, both notoriously difficult to do well.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 OPI What's the Double Scoop? Swatch

OPI What’s the Double Scoop? is a cool-toned pale pink creme. It has a thinner formula but pretty good coverage with 2 coats.

OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection Swatches + Review

I’ve been experiencing some really hot weather for the past few weeks, but even if you haven’t been the OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection will definitely get you ready for July. While the formula on some of the shade is a bit thin, the shades are very festive and I especially love the OPI SPF XXX.
