Hey everyone! I’m a bit late to the party, but I’m still here! Today I’ve got a greatly anticipated collection, OPI Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty was a massive part of my childhood…I remember visiting the Sanrio store in the mall and the Sanrio kiosk in the Navy Exchange. My parents used to buy us the $5 surprise grab bags to keep us quiet. I know I wasn’t the only one hoping for the best with this collection.
There is one major caveat with this collection: half of the polishes are pink. If you’re not a pink person, I’d turn away for the first six.
Let’s Be Friends (three coats): pink-tinged white The application on this one was a nightmare.
Look At My Bow (two coats): bubblegum pink Every other pink creme, however, has wonderful two-coat coverage.
Small + Cute = <3 (two coats): baby pink
Spoken From The Heart (two coats): watermelon pink
Starry-Eyed For Dear Daniel (three coats): fuchsia pink glitter
Super Cute In Pink (two coats): orchid pink
Here are the long-awaited other 6 polishes!
5 Apples Tall (two coats): coral red
Charmmy & Sugar (two coats): shimmery white with pink/purple shift and multicolored glitter
Kitty White (three coats): white glass-flecks
Kitty White (one coat over Let’s Be Friends)
My Pal Joey (two coats): primary blue
My Twin Mimmy (three coats): bright yellow
Never Have Too Mani Friends (two coats): glossy black
All of the cremes performed just as well as most of the previous pinks, except for My Twin Mimmy. My Twin Mimmy suffers the same yellow curse: finicky application. I find Charmmy & Sugar a bit too busy for a polish…the glitter seems to get lost in the shimmer. My absolute favorite is 5 Apples Tall…I’m a sucker for coral red.
Overall, I’m happy with the assortment of colors. A bit of variety with the finishes would be ideal, but it’s a nice set. Even though I’m over 30, I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for everything Hello Kitty.
