OPI x Hello Kitty Holiday 2019 Collection

This is a big ol’ collection to talk about today, so I’m not even going to ramble like I normally do! (Don’t get used to it, it’ll come back for more posts).

Today we’re talking about the first holiday collection of the year on the blog! Wild to think we’re already zooming into the holidays, but IT’S TIME. And we’re starting it with an exciting one!

This is the OPI holiday 2019 collection and it’s in collaboration with Hello Kitty! If you didn’t know, their first collaboration with Hello Kitty was for Spring 2016. That was before I was really into polish and collecting, so I only grabbed a few that I found in clearance bins after they came out. They had white wrappers with Hello Kitty’s face printed all over them. These ones this year have black wrappers with white bows printed all over.

There are 12 polishes in the core release, and then 3 exclusive glitter toppers. And of course I bought them all! I picked all of these up from polishpick.com, where I get all of my OPI polishes – they have the best prices and quickest shipping!

There’s a lot of polishes and I went a little ham with photos, so we got a lot to look at! Let’s get right into it!

OPI Scotland Fall 2019 Collection

FALL FALL FALL FALL FALL.

I don’t know if you’ve read or realized yet, but I love fall. The deep vampy colors of polish and makeup are my FAVORITE. I’m a pale girl so these deep shades make me look even paler and witchier, and I’m ready to let my gothy inner self out. WHICH THIS COLLECTION REALLY LETS ME DO.

This post took a little longer than planned, as I had a freelance project come in that I holed up in my apartment all weekend for, and I still haven’t fully figured out how to pre-plan and have posts saved up like a good blogger. This blog will always just be a hobby, and my “real job” will always come first (I’m a graphic designer), so I’m glad you guys are always patient!

This is OPI collection for Fall 2019 based on Scotland. So there are fun puns and fun facts about Scotland ahead, prepare yourself. We have the 12 polishes from the collection, and then 2 exclusive shades. As always I grabbed these from polishpick.com (If you ever buy from polishpick.com, there’s a dropdown where you can put my name in as a referral! It’s not an affiliate code, but does still help to show where people are coming from!)

We got a lot of nail polishes to talk about today, so let’s just start talking already.

OPI Neons 2019 – Comparisons

PURCHASED WITH DISCOUNT

Alright y’all, we had the full collection swatch and review, so of course now we have the comparison post. I said in my last comparison post that I wanted to keep doing this for the collections I reviewed, both for reference for myself, and for others! I know it’s helpful for everyone to see, and always helps me when deciding whether to purchase. This blog was made with the intention of being a resource, so of course I want to provide that for you!

We’re talking about the comparisons for the OPI Neons 2019 collection today! I found some similar shades for 4 out of the 6 colors.

I picked up these shades from Polishpick.com. And as you can see, I’m now labeling it “purchased with discount”. I always want to be upfront and honest with all products I’m getting, so I’m posting that up there now. After purchasing from PolishPick multiple times on my own and talking about them with no incentive, the owner was kind enough to give me a blogging discount – I’m still purchasing the shades myself, but at an even cheaper price, which allows me to keep picking up the shades and showing them to you!

Even without the discount, PolishPick is still the place I’ve found with the cheapest prices for OPI – she also gets in the new collections right when they launch, and I’ve never had a problem with shipping or receiving products. Even without a discount, I would still be shopping there for each collection! That’s my spiel for the post.

Enough yammering, let’s get to nail polish.

OPI Neons Summer 2019 Collection

PURCHASED

Gosh DANG, it’s gotten HOT here in Chicago (finally). Something snapped and it’s been 80s here all week (that’s hot for a Midwest state that has been lazing around in the 60s and 70s all summer), and today it’s apparently 94. My new exercise routine is just sweating constantly because I’m currently too cheap to turn on my AC. I keep telling myself to appreciate it after Polar Vortex 2k19 but I’m weak and not used to this. What’s the summer like where you’re at? Are you calling me weak right now? Pls let me know.

But you know what, hot temperatures require neon nails. Smooth transition, right?

That’s right! We’re talking about the new neon collection from OPI. This is a 6 piece collection for Summer 2019 and features 6 bright neon shades. They’re bright, I was excited to test em out. Let’s just get right into it.

As always, I purchased these off of polishpick.com.

OPI ‘Tokyo’ Spring 2019 Collection

It’s the first spring collection post! I think this is the earliest I’ve gotten a spring review up. 2019 is really my year, huh. 3rd year of blogging is really when I get it together, guys.

I’m also in the process of moving, and finding a new apartment, so sometimes browsing availabilities and showings can get in my way. But I’m going to make sure that I won’t get too far behind! I want to keep up this timeliness! I’m putting this down in writing to keep myself accountable! Exclamation points! All exciting things happening over here. No really, I’m actually really excited to move. I’m ready to have a place with more natural light (ergo more places for plants), and to decorate another little space.

But let’s talk about spring polish, shall we? It’s still full on winter here, with ice storms and freezing temps, but you know, I have some bright wonderful spring colors for you.

The first collection to talk about is from OPI! It’s the Spring 2019 collection, and it’s a 12 piece collection based on Tokyo. As always, the names are hilarious and so fitting for their inspiration. It’s full of bright pinks and other bright pops of colors that I’ve really been craving from OPI so I’m so excited to dive in. It’s made up of 9 creams and 3 shimmery shades.

Just like the other collections, I picked these up from polishpick.com. It’s still the best price for OPI I’ve found, and they always ship so fast! Check em out, will ya.

Let’s get right into the swatches.

OPI ‘Nutcracker’ Holiday 2018 Collection

Y’all, it’s a huge collection, so I promise I won’t talk too much. But be ready for lots of posts coming up soon. I’m going to be at my parents house for a week for the holidays, so when I’m not annoying them and eating their food, I’m going to be working on writing up as many posts as I can and getting them ready to post. So be ready. (Sorry in advance, Mom and Dad).

Alright that’s enough rambling because we have a big-ass collection to get into today. This is the OPI Holiday 2018 collection which is inspired by the newest Nutcracker movie that came out. This is their traditional 12 shades, but 3 glitter toppers for a whopping 15 bottle group. I know right. BUT WE’LL GET THROUGH IT TOGETHER. There’s a ton of polishes and photos to get into, so let’s just do this.

OPI ‘Peru’ Fall 2018 Collection

It’s another fall collection! After having friends down this entire week and weekend, the swatches got a little behind. But on my quiet Sunday, I marathon-swatched all 12 shades. It was just me and the polish, and lord, I’m not ashamed of how much I enjoyed it. This also means the rest of the fall collections will be on the blog this week, and then we’ll be able to get right into holiday collections! It’s still fall until December, that’s what I’m saying.

So let’s get into it. It’s OPI so we got a 12 piece collection to get on through. As always, I pick up my polishes at polishpick.com – I’ve bought from them several times, and they’re always affordable (OPI’s are only $5.75!) and so quick on shipping! Highly recommend, and really the only reason I can afford to swatch all these collections!

This collection is for fall 2018 and is based on Peru. It’s full of 12 cream shades. It’s a long post, so I’ll stop rambling already and get on into it.
