OPI Hello Kitty Collection

PressSample

 

 

Hey there! Can you believe it’s February already? What the heck is going on because it feels like time is flying. Well, the one thing I like about February in California is that it actually sorta feels like Winter. I said sorta. Yesterday it was raining and it was windy as hell. While I was out running errands, I accidentally grabbed my car door all weird while I was trying to close it and I broke a nail…the same son of a dick nail that breaks all the time. I had some decent length in my new oval shape as you can see in the pictures below, but since I can’t stand having nails all different shapes and lengths, I just cut them all off down to nubs. I did quite a bit of swatching this weekend so you’ll be seeing this shape for the next couple of weeks until I am able to do some more swatching. One of the collections that I swatched this past weekend is the OPI Hello Kitty Collection. Now, I must admit that I don’t really care about Hello Kitty. I mean, it’s cute and all but it’s not like I am all into it. Because of the cuteness factor and because it’s nail polish, I was pretty excited to get my hands on this collection. Let me show you some swatches first, and then I’ll let you know what I think about this collection.

Was that pink enough for ya? Well, I can’t say that I was surprised at the amount of pink in this collection and I am definitely not complaining because I LOVE pink nail polish. If you like pink, then you will probably like this collection. If you like Hello Kitty, you will love this collection. If you don’t like either, then don’t even bother…unless you want a super gorgeous blue like My Pal Joey. I do want to tell you that My Pal Joey suffers from the blue pigment curse: it smells like skunk mixed with pot. The yellow and black polishes seem kind of out of place in this collection, don’t you think? My 3 absolute favorites in this collection are: My Pal Joey, Spoken From The Heart and Super Cute In Pink. Spoken From The Heart is like the most gorgeous coral pink ever and Super Cute In Pink was so incredibly flattering on me that I just loved it immediately. Since I’ve seen a few people complain about this, I did want to mention that the handles with the cute Hello Kitty images are just shrink wrap plastic so they tend to come off if you are too rough with the bottles…or if you accidentally get acetone on the plastic…yeah. So overall, I like this cute collection. It’s a must for Hello Kitty lovers, of course, but I can see a lot of these colors being favorites whether you’re into HK or not. This collection is out now and hopefully still on shelves near you. Have you picked up any of these polishes or will you be getting any? Let me know what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

    I’m not a “pink person,” but some of these are really tempting — Small + Cute = <3 and Spoken from the Heart to begin with. Plus I am LOVING your new nail shape! It is sooooo good to have you back. I'm also going through the blog list from the latest KB Shimmer post. Those gals are awesome.

    HOW is it February?!?!
    The weather yesterday was so weird…it was nice in the morning…then it stared hailing and got cold and super windy in the evening.
    I also cut all my nails off yesterday because I already had four corner breaks and one just tore off while I was cleaning…I was like, I’m done, lol.
    Not like you are all into it? How dare you, lol. It’s OK…I’m into it enough for the both of us. Well…maybe for all eight of us. :p
    I am just in love with these on you.
    The black does kinda bother me because…it’s just a black crème. OK? The yellow I can reconcile because Hello Kitty’s twin sister has a yellow bow instead of a red one (and she wears it on the opposite ear)…hence, the name. ;P

      LOL…leave it to you to explain the colors to me. I have no idea what they correspond to so I’ll just let you school me. I do want to go to the HK Café just because. That sucks about your nail breaks. I was so pissed yesterday when I broke a nail. I was trying to close my car door and it was raining as I was going to Ulta. My hand slipped on the wet door and my nail bit the dust. I was so irritated that proceeded to run through the parking lot and a car backed up right into me…well, not into me, but it stopped like an inch before hitting me. It was not my day.

    Now I want these!! So pretty.

      They really are adorable.

    I’m surprised (ok not really) that people complained about the caps. I expected them to be wrapped caps…I remember some collections like the mustang one had wrapped caps. Anyways! I picked up My Pal Joey and Super Cute in Pink for myself but all those other super girly pinks just wont do for me. OPI should really do a “Sanrio” Collection now that they got all Hello Kitty out of the way. Choco Cat and Keroppi need some loving too.
