As you probably know by now, Hello Kitty by OPI has hit shelves and I have swatches and my thoughts about the collection now.
This collection features twelve new limited-edition shades, all inspired by Hello Kitty and her pals. Fun fact: there are over 50,000 Hello Kitty branded items in over 130 countries and 15,000 retail locations. Wow! I’m not really a huge fan anymore, but still have a Hello Kitty sewing kit from when I was a kid. 🙂
Let’s Be Friends! is a light pink creme. Because this tended to settle into my more ridged nails I needed three thin coats.
Look at My Bow! is a light, bright pink creme. A very “girly” pink shade which also needed three thin coats for me.
Small + Cute = ♥ is a sheer-ish baby pink creme. Again, three coats and it was still a bit uneven.
Charmmy & Sugar is a pale pink glitter with small pink and silver glitter pieces throughout. Super sparkly and covered nicely with two coats.
Kitty White is a pearly, glittery white with hints of pink. This covered pretty well with just two coats.
Super Cute in Pink is a bright pink creme with purple undertones. I love this bright shade and it covered nicely with just two coats.
Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel is a full-coverage pink glitter in a pink base. Covered nicely with two coats.
Spoken from the Heart is a coral pink creme. This covered really nicely with just two coats.
5 Apples Tall is a bright apple red creme. It’s apple red but has lots of pink to it and it covered nicely with two coats.
My Twin Mimmy is a sunny yellow creme. Three thin coats covered fairly evenly for me.
My Pal Joey is a bright blue creme. Two coats covered perfectly and it’s gorgeous.
Never Have Too Mani Friends! is a jet black creme. Shiny and covered with two coats.
As you would expect from a Hello Kitty collection, there are plenty of pinks! Some of the pink shades which I think are particularly interesting are Super Cute in Pink and Spoken from the Heart. Aside from the pinks I do also really like 5 Apples Tall, which isn’t unique per-se, but so pigmented and shiny. Of course my other favorites are My Twin Mimmy and My Pal Joey. If there was just ONE to get for me, it would be My Pal Joey because hell, it’s blue and beautiful!
You can find these out now (or very soon) in stores such as Ulta, Dillard’s, Regis, etc. and they are $9.50 each.
