Nails: OPI 'Next stop...the bikini zone'

Last weekend, while out shopping, I had a look at the OPI stand and saw the new Spring/Summer Brazil collection was out. The collection is full on creme finishes, with this one being the only one that isn't! I thought I would go for one of the brights, but too be honest, most looked dupable. I did however decide to buy 'Next stop...the bikini zone' which is a really unique shade I have nothing like.

As you can see, it is a heavily purple based/green duo chrome. I have swatched it three times on the nail wheel, firstly over a white, then a purple and finally just on it's own. Over both the white and purple there is barely any difference, so to get a slightly more opaque finish, just layer it over any colour (other colours may look different though) but if you want the duochrome finish to be a lot more visible, two or three coats on it's own works well. Personally, I prefer it on it's own as it looks much more unqiue, as over the the colours it just looks like any old shimmery purple! Despite this being not a typical 'spring/summer' colour I do really like it and can't wait to wear this!
Have you got your eye on anything from the Brazil collection?
