OPI Malibu Summer 2021 Nail Lacquer Mini 4-Pack Swatches + Review

NGL, I wasn't swooning when I first saw OPI's Malibu Summer 2021 Nail Lacquer Mini 4-Pack on the shelf, as the colors appeared fairly typical for this time of year; however, once I applied them...love! It was soon evident that this collection was full of colors for all seasons - a few of which I'll be wearing as we head into fall. Check out the gorgeous goodies below!

Pear-Adise Cove is a Chartreuse Green Creme. I think this color earns the Top Spot of strangest color in my 2021 nail polish collection. But seriously...Pear-Adise Cove is...different. On one hand the chartreuse green creme feels summer-y; on the other hand, it feels fall due to the muddiness of the undertones. I feel like this is one of those colors that grows on you while you're wearing it; however, I doubt that I'll pick it up again for a repeat-wear. That said, the formula was good. I did experience minor brush shedding; but nothing too bad. If you're looking for something unique, this bad boy def fits the bill! This is 2 coats.
Strawberry Waves Forever is a Bright Pink w/ Iridescent Shimmer. Y'all, this color is killing me. Like I legit cannot get over how unexpectedly perfect it is. Strawberry Waves Forever is a bright, magenta-leaning pink w/ iridescent shimmer that flashes purple, pink, and blue in different light. I cannot tell you how incredible the formula is here. The density is perfection, making it super simple to apply; and removal is a breeze because it is a shimmer not a glitter {don't confuse the two}. Though geared towards summer flings, this is one that I plan on adding to my year-round repertoire as it will easily be a smash come New Year's, Christmas, or Valentine's! This is 2 coats.

El Mat-adoring You is a Tan Caramel Creme. Okayokayokay, so I get that this color originated in a summer collection; but I am feeling. it. for. fall. El Mat-adoring You is a tan caramel creme that is legit the shade of the perfect iced coffee. The moment I swiped this one on my fingers all I could think about was Thanksgiving, and piles of leaves, and riding boots and...you get the picture. Formula here was a breeze to work with. I wish it would have dried slightly quicker {I accidentally indented the polish on my pointer finger}; but dry time aside, it was long lasting and stunning to look at for the week that I wore it. Love and highly recommend! This is 2 coats.

The Sound of Vibrance is a Purple Shimmer. Shimmer, shimmer cocoa pop...I had to do it. #sorrynotsorry. The Sound of Vibrance is a purple shimmer that 100% put a spell on me and made me think of all of the spooky, Halloween, Hocus Pocus things. I mean, I get that it's a shade from a summer collection, but it is just as killer for spooky season. Just saying. Formula was flawless. I do recommend using a heavier hand, or adding a third coat to ensure that no VNL is visible; but, other than that, it's bril. Highly recommend if purples are your poison. This is 2 coats. 


  PRICE: $13.99 for the 4PC Mini Set; $10.49 for each full-size bottle.

Not so keen on the brown but the other 3 are killing it! I agree the purple screams Hallowe'en but so does the greeny one I think too :-D And OMG love the red <3 <3 In all honesty I'd buy this set for the 3 lol!

You can't go wrong with OPI, from the stunning shades to the oh-so-clever names, and your write-ups are just as cute and quippy. Love! The Sound of Vibrance is my favorite. Halloween, here we come!
