My Picks from OPI Mexico City Spring/Summer 2020!

Today I have my picks from the OPI Mexico City collection for you! My OPI purchases have definitely dwindled in the last few years. The collections seem repetitive sometimes when you have a very large polish collection. However, they are still my favorite mainstream brand and as the brand that got me into nail polish, I always check out their latest releases and grab any I am interested in. I picked up three polishes from Mexico City and I really love them! First up we have OPI Don't Tell a Sol, a bright canary yellow creme. I love this one, it packs a bright punch, but also has a touch of softness to it. It somehow reminds me of banana pudding, or maybe lemon creme pie. Something delicious for sure! Bright yellow is always a perfect cheery color for spring and summer, so this was a must have for me.
This was three coats of Don't Tell a Sol. I don't think it's OPI's best formula in a yellow creme, but it wasn't bad. It was a bit streaky, so definitely wait in between coats to avoid that. I did need the third coat to cover any VNL, but if you do thicker coats or have shorter nails, you may be fine with two carefully applied coats. All swatches in this post have one layer of quick drying top coat for shine.
I'll be honest with you, I really only bought OPI My Chihuahua Doesn't Bite Anymore because I thought the name was cute. I like how they took the old name (My Chihuahua Bites) and gave it a twist for a new collection. OPI calls this an orange, but it's a bright coral orange-y red creme. It has a lot of red in it, not a straight orange at all. I love corals- any variety of coral. Orange corals, pink corals, red corals, you name it, I love it. I'm really happy I picked this up and it makes the most perfect summer pedicure color (it's on my toes right now!).
This is two easy coats. The formula was great, perfect to apply and nicely opaque. The formula is that perfect OPI consistency that has made the brand a favorite of mine for SO many years.
OPI Verde Nice to Meet You is probably the star of the collection for me personally. This is a beautiful sea green creme that just screams summer. It reminds me of tropical turquoise waters, the kind I won't be seeing this summer, thank you Coronavirus.

This is two coats and the formula was very nice. Good pigmentation, no issues with application. If I had to recommend one polish from Mexico City, it would be this one.

Did you pick up any polishes from the Mexico City collection or do you plan on getting any? I am really happy with these three. I have my eye on about 5 or 6 from the fall Milan collection as well. I'm not quite ready for fall yet, but I'll be ordering them soon! 

OPI Mexico City is available now on and wherever OPI is sold near you.
