I was lucky enough to be gifted a set of three nail polishes from O.P.I’s Hello Kitty collection! Whilst I’m not a super-fan of Hello Kitty, I do enjoy a bit of Hello Kitty goodness in my life. I received the O.P.I Sparkle & Shine Trio Pk which retails for $39.95 at David Jones. It includes three nails polishes, a small sheet of Swarovski Hello Kitty crystals in the shape of Hello Kitty’s face, as well as an adhesive for them.
The most important trait of good nail polish for me is lasting power, so that is what I will focus on in my review. I wasn’t a fan of the pink polish in this collection, so I gifted it to a friend.
Put to the Test
Day 1: Shiny and oh so pretty! Love this shade.
Day 5: Still looking pretty fab, but small cracks have appeared on a couple of the nails.
Day 7: Them cracks are getting more obvious. A couple small chips too.
Day 11: Finally time to say goodbye to this nail polish. Too chipped for me to wear, so I removed them.
Overall, very impressed with the lasting power! A whole seven days went, and my nails still looked really good (from a distance). The small cracks the started appearing were a bit weird, but as you can tell from the photos, they’re only visible extremely close up.
Would I recommend?
If you’re a fan of Hello Kitty, I would definitely recommend these polishes. O.P.I is a good quality nail polish brand, and is easily available in Australia. If you’re not particularly doe-eyed by Hello Kitty, there’s nothing special about these polishes, so I’d give them a miss. I personally wouldn’t buy these myself.
Likes: Great lasting power. Cute design. O.P.I is a good quality brand.
Dislikes: $49.95 is pretty pricey for three polishes, especially considering I wouldn’t use those rhinestones included in the kit.
Any Hello Kitty or O.P.I fans out there? Let me know in the comments.
