Good afternoon! I have a comparison for you today. When I was trying out the new OPI Hawaii Collection, I knew right away that Is Mai Tai Crooked? would be one of my favorites. When I put it on the rack next to my other OPI oranges, I realized it seemed very similar to last year’s OPI Brazil color called Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?  Let’s see how they compare below.

 All of the photos below are 2 coats without top coat on a nail wheel. They are similar but definitely not dupes.

Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? is brighter and more bold than Is Mai Tai Crooked?

Neither had formula issues so it all comes down to preference for a dustier orange or a brighter one.

Do you prefer one or the other? Did this help you decide for or against the new OPI Hawaii shade? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for reading!

    Thank you for this review, I love these comparisons you do! I was really considering getting the new hawaii shade, but seeing that it's so similar to the brazil color, I'll save my money. Very helpful post 🙂

    I love them both, and I think which one I chose would come down to what I was going to wear the manicure for, and what else I was going to use on my nails. I definitely need BOTH in my stash!

    I have both and only until bringing my Mai tai is crooked I realized the resmiblence! I’m looking for a more pastel orange like a sherbet. Does opi have any colors like that?
