I have a few more colors from OPI’s Nicki Minaj Collection to share, and I’m starting with Fly, a bright turquoise.
I liked how Fly looked both bright and deep in the bottle, and on the nail it keeps that look. It’s bright but also a little powdery or something. The formula is fine, but I did have to use three coats to be sure that the color was fully opaque. It’s a great spring/summer color, nice and vibrant. I think it will be good on toes.
I remembered Dior’s Saint-Tropez being a deep turquoise blue that was brighter than Chanel’s Nouvelle Vague, so I pulled it out to compare. It’s interesting how different it looks next to Fly. In the picture below, Fly is on my index and middle fingers and Saint-Tropez is on my ring and pinky. In comparison, Saint-Tropez takes on an almost minty tone. It’s a lot lighter, but both colors have a fair amount of green. Saint-Tropez looks more springy to me than Fly.
The OPI Nicki Minaj Collection is out now in stores.
