It is that time of the year again, that all nail polish brands decide to release some information about their new collections. This week, it is time for OPI’s new summer 2021 collection inspired by Malibu! I don’t actually have this collection yet, and I don’t think that any swatches are available yet, but I will just share what I was able to find!
Surprisingly, the collection is inspired by Malibu, which is very close to the location of thespring 2021 collection,which was Hollywood. Also, in 2017 OPI released their California Dreaming collection, which also had some Malibu-inspired shades. I’m quite surprised since OPI normally randomizes the destinations quite well. I’m not sure whether this is because of Covid-19 (and they couldn’t travel to the location of the collection) or because Malibu is close the Hollywood, and OPI was founded there 40 years ago. Anyway, it doesn’t really matter.
The collection can basically be split up into two parts: six neutral shades, and six colorful shades.
