OPI Hello Kitty Collection, Part 2!

 *Sent for review*

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I'm just having a chill weekend and getting a lot of cleaning done, so nothing exciting. I have a couple more polishes from the OPI Hello Kitty collection for you today, starting with OPI 5 Apples Tall. 5 Apples Tall is a juicy warm red creme, the shade of the red portion of a gala apple. This is so shiny and luxurious, it's definitely a new favorite red for me. 

5 Apples Tall is kind of like a crelly-ish creme. It's very shiny and the first coat has a nice translucence to it. But it builds up nicely to full opacity in just two coats. It has that great gel-like consistency that I love because it makes it so easy to apply.

OPI My Pal Joey is a stunning vivid bright blue creme. Not too long ago, I was thinking to myself that OPI typically does really dark blues, rather than light or medium ones, so it's nice to see them prove me wrong. I think we've seen this shade before, but it's gorgeous and has a flawless formula, so I don't mind at all! I actually am wearing it right now as a full mani, with some glitter on top!

This is two effortless coats of My Pal Joey. It has the same gel-like formula that just glides on. I am not sure if this is a new or tweaked creme formula for OPI, but it just seems all the ones in the collection are spectacular.

OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends is a great black creme. If you are looking for a new one, this is definitely a winner in my book. Very shiny and black black, not wimpy black.

This is two coats of Never Have Too Mani Friends. It was easy to apply and nicely opaque, although it would be even nicer if it was opaque in one coat.

I have to tell you- I have already worn 3 of the Hello Kitty polishes as full manis. I am really hooked on this collection. The colors are cute on their own or with glitter toppers, the formulas are fantastic and... HELLO KITTY!! I see myself wearing these a lot.

The OPI Hello Kitty collection is available now at Ulta and ulta.com.

**I will have the remaining three posted tomorrow. I was originally going to include them here, but I swatched them on a different day than the ones in this post, and wouldn't you know it? The night after swatching these three, I broke a nail on my swatch hand so badly!! So the remaining three are on super short nails and I felt like I couldn't put them in the same post!
