I've adored Hello Kitty for the longest time, and I'm not alone, because Hello Kitty is the ultimate global symbol of friendship and fun who made cuteness a culture in Japan. With fans ranging from four to forever, she's equally adored for children's wear to the world of beauty and has previously been the face of brands such as MAC in 2009. This year she is OPI’s newest muse and this collection celebrates all things happy, cute, colourful and sweet with 12 limited-edition nail polish shades.
In this post I showed you all a collection of beauty pieces I picked up on my trip to Liverpool and included in this was a mini set of some of 12 nail polishes from the collection. A week or so later, I was contacted by Just My Look to see if I'd like to try a full size nail polish from the collection which was a lovely surprise indeed! I decided to pick the shade 'Let's Be Friends' because it was a shade that wasn't in my mini set of Hello Kitty OPI polishes.
I'm so happy with 'Let's Be Friends' because it's the perfect creamy pastel pink shade that will make you instantly think of cotton candy and spring all rolled into one. It reminds me of a slightly more paler version of OPI's iconic shade 'Mod About You' which was all the rage back in the day and as the evenings get lighter (thank goodness!) I'm embracing pastel sweetness in my life again in my beauty and fashion choices.
Like all pastel shades it's quite a thick consistency but because it's light it has lasted a lot longer on me than a dark shade would so that's always a bonus with paler shades. The bottle is of course the extra touch of sweetness with Hello Kitty's cutest little face all over the lid.
Have any of you got your claws on something from the Hello Kitty OPI collection? If so, what shade did you pick up? If not, which shade do you think will be purr-fect for you? (apologies for the cheesy puns: had to be done!)
