OPI Hello Kitty Holiday 2019 – COMPARISONS

See the original review post here: OPI Hello Kitty Holiday 2019

Heyooooo we have a comparison post again! I know these dropped out last year, and like I’ve mentioned many times before I wanted to get back into them this year. A major goal for 2020 is to destash and declutter my collection, so these posts definitely help me accomplish that.

So today, we’re looking at the OPI Hello Kitty collection for Winter 2019. I’m working on holiday collections and working my way back to fall from 2019 – never too late for some comparisons!

Obviously I only pick shades that have actual close comparisons to look at and swatch – there were a few in this collection that I had nothing remotely close to, so if you don’t see them in this post, that’s why.

This is the first post I’ve included swatch sticks that expand out the color comparisons for certain polishes! I’m almost too proud of these, but they’re so helpful as well. Some of them may not be close to being dupes, but you’ll be able to see the sticks and see “oh it’s more pink-toned than this one, but deeper than this one”. It just helps you place the color within a bigger collection.

And then from those swatch sticks, I pulled up to the 3 closest shades to swatch on the nails and compare even more closely. LOOK AT ALL THE COMPARISONS, SHE’S WILD! All in all, I’m just trying to help make a guide, and help you give allllll of the information before buying. So I hope you enjoy!

Obviously I’m playing a little bit of catch up here – as spring collections release, I’ll be putting those comparisons at a higher priority, and then adding in previous holiday and fall comparison posts sprinkled in between. You can still find these shades and purchase them, so I figure they’ll still be helpful to have up!

Alright, we got a lot of polishes to look through, so let’s get into it already, shall we?

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 Рthey 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!

Discount: TJ Maxx – OPI ‘Hello Kitty’ Shades

My Tj Maxx has really upped their polish game and that is dangerous for me. They have them displayed out on a beautiful spinning rack now, instead of thrown like peasants into two big bowls. Now I can truly see ALL my options – and that’s bad.

Also apparently I felt I didn’t have enough pinks in my entire collection, and just decided to try to buy them all in one trip. Don’t worry, I still don’t have enough because I just discovered a true love for pinks on my skin tone.

In this edition of TJ Maxx roundup, I found a lot of shades from the OPI Hello Kitty collection, which came out last December/January. After a quick search for swatches, I quickly snatched up every pink that was there. I have 5 from the collection to show you today!

Let’s get into the swatches.
