The weather is getting warmer, so it’s time for new spring and summer nail polish colors! The OPI Fiji Collection is a line of 12 shades that are perfect for spring and summer. The colors range from a pretty nude shade to pinks, blues, greens and sunny yellow, orange and red. They remind me of the colors you’d find in a swimsuit or in nature on beautiful islands. They’re pretty, bright and say fun-in-the-sun!
These shades are perfect if you’re going on a sunny vacation or cruise. The colors go with swimsuits, resort wear, and pretty summer clothes.
I have four of the shades from the Fiji Collection that I’ll show you. While I’ve usually gravitated toward more classic colors in the past – nudes, pinks, reds, metallics – I’ve become more open to the more non-traditional nail polish shades. They’re so pretty and fun to wear!
If you also tend to wear classic shades but want to branch out, there are fun ways to do that. You can either wear, say, a blue shade on your finger nails the same way you’d wear your usual shades. You could also wear these shades as a toe color and a pearly white shade on your hands. Wearing the shades as a toe color is also a good idea if you have a dress code that calls for more classic colors at work (since you probably have to wear closed-toed shoes too!). Or you could just wear these shades the same way you wear any other shade. It’ll show a joie de vivre!

The OPI Fiji Collection is available in their original formula, their GelColor formula (a soak-off formula) and their Infinite Shine formula. The colors that I have are in the Infinite Shine formula. The Infinite Shine line is a gel-like formula that comes off with regular nail polish remover. The polish lasts on your nails up to 11 days. That’s great if you’re going on vacation and don’t want to have to tend to your manicure while you’re away!

EXOTIC BIRDS DO NOT TWEET
Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet (I just love the way OPI names their colors!) is a fun, sunny yellow shade. It’s perfect for the beach and warm weather. It also reminds me of yellow rain coats and boots. If you aren’t in a sunny climate, this shade can brighten up your day!
I usually need to apply three coats when working with light shades or gel-like polishes, and I did need to apply three coats of Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet. That’s mostly due to my nail polish application skills (or lack thereof)! Three coats did the trick with this shade!
Super Trop-i-cal-i-fiji-istic is a beautiful medium blue shade. This color is perfect to wear with nautical outfits. It’s also perfect for a toe color, or for a cruise or beach vacation! This shade worked after applying just two coats. I was proud of myself on that one!
POLLY WANT A LACQUER?
Polly Want A Lacquer is a pretty pastel lavender shade. It makes a great toe shade and also looks pretty on the hands. It would go beautifully with spring and summer clothes and swimsuits with similar colors. I applied three coats of Polly Want A Lacquer.
SUZI WITHOUT A PADDLE
Suzi Without A Paddle is a beautiful light aqua blue shade. This shade looks pretty on the hands, and is a wonderful toe color. It would be pretty to wear with a swimsuit that has this color in it. Or you could wear it to pick up a similar color in a printed outfit. Suzi Without A Paddle looked great after I applied three coats.
If you’re looking for new, fun nail polish shades for spring and summer, I definitely recommend checking out the OPI Fiji Collection. These colors are fun, beautiful and wearable. They just remind me of warm weather, sunny vacations, and the summer days ahead!
