As promised, here are my comparison swatches of the shades from the Fiji collection (except for I can never hut up which is pretty unique). I dug out the shades that I thought would be the most similar from my pretty big OPI collection. So if your wondering about a specific polish that I haven’t compared it too, either I don’t have it or they were not similar enough.
Do you sea what I sea? – I sea you wear OPI – Venice the party? – Yodel me on my cell
Here I’m wearing three coats of each shade. Do you sea what I sea is most similar too Vencie the party?, but it has more of a frosty and sparkly finish.
Suzi without a paddle – Sailing & Nail-ing – Gelato on my mind – It’s a boy!
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade, except for It’s a boy which I’m wearing three coats of. Suzi without a paddle is pretty much a dupe of It’s a boy!, though it covers better in fewer coats.
Is that a spear in your pocket? – Stay off the lawn!! – Amazon…Amazoff
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. I think you all will agree with me when I say no dupes here. Is that a spear in your pocket? is different and pretty and you should get it!
Super trop-i-cal-i-Fiji-istic – Keeping Suzi at bay – My pal Joey – Suzi says feng shui
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. Nope, no dupes here either. I think Super trop-i-cal-i-Fiji-istic is a beautiful royal blue polish that you must get, but how annoying is that name!? Try writing it a few times….
Coconuts over OPI – Don’t pretzel my buttons – Samoan sand – Pale to the chief
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. When we see all the bottles lined up next to each other they all look really similar, but once the polish is on the nails that is no longer that case.
Polly want a lacquer? – I’m gown for anything – Purple palazzo pants – You’re such a Budapest
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade, except for You’re such a Budapest which I’m wearing three coats of. I don’t have a dupe for Polly want a lacquer?, and this is my favorite shade from the collection, so I’d say that you should get it!
Exotic birds do not tweet – I just can’t cope-acabana – My twin Mimmy – Need sunglasses?
Here I’m wearing three coats of each shade. They pretty much all look like dupes on the photo. But in reality only Exotic birds do not tweet and My twin Mimmy are pretty much dupes. I just can’t cope-acabana is lighter and Need sunglasses? is darker and has more of a jelly finish.
No tan lines – Is mai tai crooked? – Orange you stylish! – Where did Suzi’s man-go?
Here I’m wearing three coats of each shade. No tan lines = no dupes.
Two-timing the zones – Look at my bow! – Shorts story – Kiss me on my tulips
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. Two-timing the zones and Shorts story is pretty much dupes, Shorts story is perhaps a little bit lighter. Since Shorts story is one of my go-to shades for floral nail art I would recommend you to get Two-timing the zones if you don’t already own Shorts story that is.
Getting nadi on my honeymoon – Small + cute = ♥ – Mod about you – Suzi shops & island hops
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. Getting nadi on my honeymoon is pretty much a dupe of Mod about you. I love both shades, so if you don’t have Mod about you, I think you should totally get one of the two!
Living on the bula-vard! – Aloha from OPI – My paprika is hotter than yours!
Here I’m wearing two coats of each shade. Living on the bula-vard! and My paprika is hotter than yours! are pretty much dupes, though MPIHTY has a bit of shimmer in it, but you can’t really see on the nails. Aloha from OPI is a little bit darker, but still pretty close to being a dupe.
I hope these swatches helped you in your decision of which shades to get. Please let me know in the comments which ones you’ll get and which ones you’ll skip out on (and why).
Next up is some nail art using shades from this collection, stay tuned for that!
