Hello Kitty by OPI Swatches and Review Part 1

Released in January, the much anticipated Hello Kitty by OPI collection has arrived!  I have to break this up into 2 posts so stay tuned for the other half.  I am missing a color called Say Hello Kitty! Special Edition because that comes in a limited edition kit with Swarvoski crystals.  Any of you guys get that kit?  I bet those crystals are so cute aaah!




Kitty White 3 coats, no topcoat.  If you apply 1 coat you can see the flecks of small glitter that sparkle pink and green.  By the time you apply a third coat your nails look mostly pearly white.  


Showered by Petals 3 coats no topcoat.  The formula for this color was very thin, which surprised me but I think I liked it better than a thick goopy white.  Unfortunately that did not mean it was not streaky, because it was. Even after 3 coats I could still see little bits of my nail peeking through.


Let's Be Friends!  3 coats no topcoat.  A pale baby pink creme, this one was streaky and thin as well.


Small + Cute = ♥ 3 coats, no topcoat.  A cool-toned light pink creme, thin but getting less streaky.  Applying a thicker third coat helps.


Spoken from the Heart 3 coats, no topcoat.  Dark pink crelly, this applied perfectly in 2 thin coats.


5 Apples Tall 2 coats no topcoat. Candy apple red crelly applied perfectly in 2 coats.  Love this color and formula!

The creme colors are so thin that they pooled at my cuticles.  Can't remember the last time I had to do cleanup on swatches, but I had to for the pink and white creme.  My tip for those shades:  apply 2 thin coats and a thicker third coat, making sure to wait a couple of minutes between coats so you don't drag.  Spoken from the Heart and 5 Apples tall had the perfect consistency and very opaque.

Part 2 will be up soon, thanks for reading!
