As soon as I clapped eyes on the OPI Hello Kitty Nail Polish Collection, my inner girlie girl practically squealed with excitement. I loved Hello Kitty back in the day, especially the merchandise. I ended up with stationary, pj’s, a phone cover and a Hello Kitty teddy, even as a teenager. Those were the days!
Now I am a fully grown adult, I don’t tend to spoil my inner child with Sanrio Hello Kitty goodness. Of course I still look at the stuff and think how cute and adorable! Yet when I came across the press release for this OPI Hello Kitty Nail Polish Collection 2016, my inner girlie girl’s heart skipped a beat. I felt young again!
The OPI Hello Kitty Nail Polish Collection is a mix of pinks, shimmery shades and primary colours, which together are a true match, a perfect palette for this Kitty inspired collection. All shades match pretty much an outfit HK herself would be wearing!
In terms of polish type, the OPI Hello Kitty collection contains a 4 Free formula and uses it’s pro wide brush in all of polishes. Which is a big thumbs up from me! Also all the bottles in this collection have exclusive Hello Kitty bottle tops, dottled all over with little Hello Kitties!
In terms of colours in the collection, there are pinks a plenty! In fact more than half of the shades are of the pink variety! So a fairly girlie collection! So if you are not much a pink polish fan – look to the other shades in this collection.
The rest of the shades are excellent, the shimmers are lovely and the primary colours are bold and glossy, just how I like them!
Anyway, onto the polishes!
5 Apples Tall – a bright red creme
My Pal Joey – a true primary blue
My Twin Mimmy – a NY taxi cab yellow
Never Have Too Mani Friends – a glossy black creme
Say Hello Kitty – Limited Edition shade – Hot Pink Shimmer
Kitty White – a semi sheer white shimmer
Charmmy & Sugar – a pink pearlised shimmer topper with multi coloured glitters
Starry Eyed For Daniel – a fun glittery pink
Let’s be Friends – milky cool baby pink creme
Look At My Bow – cool bubblegum pink creme
Small+Cute=❤️ – a rosy pink creme
Spoken From The Heart – a raspberry pink creme
Super Cute in Pink – a glossy almost Barney the dinosaur purple/pink creme
My favourites from this collection are 5 Apples Tall, My Pal Joey, Spoken From The Heart and Small + Cute = ❤. I love the crème shades and these look super glossy and right up my street, all these bold shades. I also like Charmmy & Sugar, its shimmery foil like glitter is my cup of tea!
I actually don’t mind this collection, even though I am not the biggest pink fan when it comes to polish. I also cannot believe 2 of my faves from this collection were a pink! A shock to my polish taste to say the least. So the pinks in this collection must be good!
Of all the shades I wasn’t keen on, My Twin Mimmy is not a great shade and a very streaky affair. This polish needs to be avoided like the plague!!!
