OPI | Hello Kitty Holiday 2019 Collection: Review and Swatches
Three years ago, OPI partnered with Hello Kitty to create a fun and girly nail polish collection (reviewed here) that became the most talked-about OPI collection so it only makes sense that the two icons collaborated again for Hello Kitty's 45th Anniversary. With 14 branding new shades and one returning favorite, the OPI Hello Kitty Holiday 2019 Collection is bound to awe! I've got reviews and swatches of the full collection to share with you today. To read on, click......

Let's Be Friends!:
The best-selling shade from the 2016 OPI Hello Kitty Collection, Let's Be Friends! has returned due to popular demand. It's a powder pink cream with a decently pigmented formulation. Unfortunately, the application is quite patchy so I needed three coats for a smooth and even coverage. The 2019 version is more opaque than the 2016 original but I'm still not sure if it's a shade that I would recommend as it's not easy to work with.

Born to Sparkle:
This is a clear topcoat suspended with shiny pink hexagon glitters of various sizes. The glitter distribution is a touch sheer but one coat still gives a nice and even coverage. I paired it with Let's Be Friends! in the swatches below.

Isn't She Iconic:
A gorgeous deep silver shimmer, Isn't She Iconic is a touch sheer but buildable to a nice and even coverage in two coats.

A Hush of Blush:
This is a soft lavender-pink packed with super-fine iridescent shimmers. The formulation is very sheer so I needed three coats to ensure an even coverage.

All About the Bows:
This is a gorgeous cranberry red with the most smooth and pigmented formulation. I used two coats for the swatches below but you can probably get away with just one!

Dream in Glitter:
A clear topcoat packed with hot pink glitters, Born to Sparkle provides a nice and even scatter of shine to any base color. For the swatches below, I used one coat over a base of All About the Bows.

Let's Celebrate!:
In the bottle, Let's Celebrate! appears as a full coverage glitter polish consisting of iridescent shimmers, fine pink glitters, and holographic glitters. However, the formulation is surprisingly sheer and looks best over a base color. For the swatches below, I used one coat over All About the Bows.

Glitter All the Way:
Another glitter topper that screams the holiday season, Glitter All the Way consists of yellow gold glitter suspended in a clear topcoat. The formulation is quite packed so you can probably get a full coverage with a few coats. I used one coat over Many Celebrations to Go!

A Kiss on the Chic:
This is a deep warm red. The formulation is surprisingly sheer and runny, especially when compared to All About the Bows. Nevertheless, two coats provide a nice and even coverage.

Let Love Sparkle:
A pearlescent icy blue shimmer, Let Love Sparkle is scattered with small iridescent lavender glitters. Unfortunately, the glitters are smothered by the shimmer particles when applied to the nails. Instead of a pretty, sparkly finish, the polish appears bumpy and gritty. Additionally, the formulation is incredibly sheer and runny, requiring three coats for a presentable finish.

Glitter to My Heart:
Scattered with matte white and silver hexagon glitters, Glitter to My Heart is another glitter top from the collection. The glitter particles are a bit sparse but I can still get away with just one coat over a solid base.

My Favorite Gal Pal:
This is a deep denim blue. Similar to the deep red A Kiss on the Chic,  My Favorite Gal Pal is quite runny and sheer. However, two coats still provide a nice and even coverage.
