Last month, December 2017, I picked up one OPI polish.

This is OPI in Is That a Spear In Your Pocket? from the Fiji Collection Spring 2017. Since I did a thorough review of OPI in Next Stop...The Bikini Zone, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it as "but of course everyone's happy to see you in this lush, tropical teal nail polish." I have to agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. This is my favorite brush for the wide width.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in OriginalFormula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, two coats of OPI in Is That a Spear In Your Pocket?, and topped it off with Madam Glam Gelementary Gel-Like Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I like the brush. It's wide enough to do three strokes and then move onto the next nail. Not only that, it's easy to paint around the cuticles and sides. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's easy to grab with your hand, and it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick glass. The top is also sturdy. I can feel a tight seal when I open/close the top. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It's easy to throw in your purse, bag, and even your pocket. Third, the consistency is on the medium. It's not too thick that I have to paint quickly or else it'll get clumpy. It's also not too thin that it runs everywhere. It's a good consistency where I can take my time without it drying out. With that said, it went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. There are a lot of similar colors out in the market but not as dark as this polish. With that said, I do have to say it's kind of unique. It's a great fall/winter color. Pigmentation-wise it's up there. Two layers were good enough to show up on my skin. Lastly, I noticed shrinkage on the fifth day. It did chip on the tips on the fifth day as well but on my right hand only. I cannot say it's the polish but more so my weak nails. I've been giving my nails a rest for couple of weeks now and it seems stronger. With that said, I'm glad I got this polish. It's a gorgeous color and I can see myself wearing it often during the fall/winter season.

Would repurchase: Yes.
