Good morning all!
Today I have the second half of OPI’s Hong Kong collection for spring 2010.
I mentioned in part I that I thought I would like that half better, and I was right. Kind of. This half actually surprised me. I really liked three of these a lot and the others didn’t “floor” me, but weren’t half bad either. Let me know what you think.
Pearl Of Wisdom is a sheer pink opalescent with shimmer. This is one of those ones that’s gorgeous in the bottle, but always extremely sheer. This was three coats here and it never really “built up” the color. I like that it has shimmer though, you don’t often see that with these pearl colors.
Panda-monium Pink is a very pale blue-based pink creme that has a tinge of lavender in it. I really like this one me, I think it looks very pretty. It’s not pastel either, in case you are wondering. This applied a little uneven and streaky but it after three coats it settled and covered nicely.
Lucky Lucky Lavender is a little darker than Panda-monium Pink, and a lot more lavender (though this pic looks pink). I also really liked this one. This has the same uneven and streaky issue as Panda-monium Pink, but again it was fine after three coats.
Chop-sticking To My Story is a medium burnt orange creme. I thought I was going to hate this, but it’s not bad. I don’t love it though. The formula was fantastic, super creamy, and it only needed two coats.
Meet Me On The Star Ferry is a plum brown shimmer. This is hard to describe and this picture doesn’t do it justice at all. The base is a plum brown color and the shimmer is green, pink, purple and gold, which you can’t really see here. It really is very unique and nice. The only color I can think of that comes close is Essie’s It’s Genuis, but they are definitely not dupes. This was three coats.
A Good Man-darin Is Hard To Find is a bright (not not neon) tangerine orange creme. I wound up liking this one on me a lot, but not sure if I would ever really wear it. The formula was great, I only needed two coats.
Overall I am a lot more pleased with this whole collection than I thought I would be based on the promo pics. I thought the majority would be really boring colors we have seen a million times, but I was wrong! There are quite a few of these that I will definitely be wearing happily!
These should be available online and in stores soon (I think Feb 1st).
Which of these do you like?
