OPI Hello Kitty Collection Swatches & Review

Hi cookies! Happy Friday! I'm excited today to show you the OPI Hello Kitty collection! I've always adored Hello Kitty and coming together with arguably my (and the world's) favorite nail polish brand was just a match made in heaven for me! There are twelve shades in this collection, inspired by Kitty's world of fun and friendship!

OPI 5 Apples Tall is a beautiful fruity red crème with a hint of coral pink. Amazing formula, and opaque in two coats. Super pretty and just different enough of a red for me to get excited for it.

OPI Look at My Bow! is a sweet light pink crème with the slightest touch of lavender. A little streaky, but I was able to cover them in three coats. This is such a perfect, girly pink!

OPI My Twin Mimmy is a bright sunny yellow crème, named for Kitty's twin Mimmy's bow color! Yellow is a hard color to get in a good formula, but this one was not bad! Three coats for full coverage.

OPI Starry Eyed For Dear Daniel is a fuchsia pink jelly with small silver hex glitters. I might spy some purple shimmer in there too, not sure. Daniel is Hello Kitty's boyfriend in case you didn't know, so cute. This applied really nicely and was opaque in just two coats.

OPI Let's Be Friends! is a very pale cloud-like pink. So pale it's almost white, but you can tell it's not. This formula was a tad thick, and a bit streaky. I used three coats here to cover the streaks. I've heard other folks have had no trouble with this though, so it might have been me.

OPI My Pal Joey is a super saturated primary blue crème. Amazing formula, probably the best in the bunch! Two coats here. Joey is one of Hello Kitty's friends, and he's a mouse!

OPI Charmmy & Sugar has a sheer shimmery pink iridescent base with small hex glitters in soft rainbow colors. This could be used as a topper, but I build it up in three coats. I think this is the only shade in the collection I don't care for, it has too much going on for me. But I like the name, which are Hello Kitty's pet cat and hamster's names.

OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends is a basic black crème. I felt this was kinda out of place in the collection, but realized it's great for all that Hello Kitty nail art that you can do! It actually has a wonderful formula, dries shiny and is almost but not quite a one coater. I used two coats here. This might be the best black from a mainstream brand I've ever tried!

OPI Small + Cute = ️❤ is a baby pink crème with a touch of peach. This is quite beautiful, I really love this color on me but I found the formula to be finicky. A little thin and streaky, I needed three coats for even coverage. Another one that I've heard other people say they had no problems with though, *shrug*.

OPI Spoken from the Heart is actually my favorite shade in the whole collection, a sweet juicy coral jelly crème! More jelly than crelly but still crème-like, if that makes any sense! Lovely formula, and the only reason I used three coats was to cover my nail line a little more. SWOON! This reminds me of the Texas collection sorbets, but more opaque.

OPI Kitty White is a white shimmer. A polish that will probably never be fully opaque, but it builds up on itself pretty well. I recommend letting this dry for a little longer than normal between coats to avoid dragging. This is three coats, but you could also layer this one of any of the crèmes. This is the type of shimmer particle that gets everywhere so be careful with removal. Did you know Kitty White is Hello Kitty's full name??

OPI Super Cute In Pink is a pink crelly with a purple tone. Applied really nice and even, but with the thinner formula you can still see nail line with two coats, so I used three. Kind of a funny name to put on this shade with so much purple in it!

There is also a special edition shade called Say Hello Kitty! that comes in a box with some Swarovski crystal bow charms. You can see swatches of that one and some comparisons of these colors on my friend Karen's blog BeautyGeeks. Oh I almost forgot, all of these shades have special white plastic shrink-wrapped caps with Hello Kitty on them too, which is pretty darn cute! This collection is available now wherever OPI is sold for around $9.50 per bottle. Let me know what you think of these pretty colors! Are you a Hello Kitty fan?
