Don't know where you live, but good ol' Melbourne was a tad chilly this morning! -1C was the "real feel" when I left home this morning! Ouch! Winter sure came in style!
Truth be told, I love winter! And it really doesn't have to be doom and gloom sort of season in any way. So to celebrate winter - I'm reviewing the OPI Hawaii Spring 2015 Collection - brighten up your winter with these babies STAT!
There are 12 polishes in this collection and the three that I've got are: My Gecko Does Tricks, Suzi Shops & Island Hops and Lost My Bikini In Molokini.
My Gecko Does Tricks is a gorgeous frosty lime green sort of shade, with hints of shimmery gold and gold depending on the angle and lighting. I find that I need four coats to get it to an opaque coverage - it's a very thin formula, but even with four coats it won't smudge!
Suzi Shops & Island Hops is an opaque baby pink shade - I have a few similar shades, but I quite like it anyway. As with all opaque colours, it's a bit tricky to work with and it can streak a bit, so patience is the key to avoid streaking and smudging!
Lost My Bikini In Molokini is a beautiful cool sort of purple that is quite opaque with two to three coats and was the easiest one to apply out of all three!
The formula was funnily enough different for all three polishes from the Hawaii collection, but the staying power was similar - I got about four days out of each colour before the minor chips occurred. I didn't use the top or base coats, and that will definitely impact how long they last too.
So the 12 colours available are:
That’s Hula-Rious! - This pastel mint green makes me dance with joy!
My Gecko Does Tricks - Being bright and pearly green is just one of its talents.
Do You Take Lei Away? - On second thought, I can’t wait – I need this creamy nude now!
Is Mai Tai Crooked? - Get it straight – this fruity orange crème is fabulous!
Go With The Lava Flow - You can feel the heat shimmering off this golden red.
Aloha From OPI - Let’s give a warm island hello to this bright creamy coral!
Suzi Shops & Island Hops - A light and happy pink that’s the perfect traveling companion.
Just Lanai-Ing Around - This dark, creamy mauve says “hang loose!” in style.
Hello Hawaii Ya? - In this gorgeous, dusky purple, I’m doing just fine.
This Color’s Making Waves - This shimmery, lagoon blue has got heads turning.
Lost My Bikini In Molokini - With this reef-inspired purple, what’s one bikini more or less?
Pineapples Have Peelings Too! - The heart of the matter lies in this gold shimmer with colorful sparkle.
So I'd absolutely love to add to my collection That's Hula-Rious! and Aloha From OPI too! Such fun and gorgeous colours, you'd forget it's winter in a sec!
Overall, I am loving this OPI collection as always, the names are witty (as always) and the colours are all so different, but at the same time all of them are so pretty!
So tell me, got any polishes from this collection? What colour and what name do you like the most?
