OPI Hello Kitty

OPI Hello Kitty Collection

She’s a global symbol of friendship and fun. She made cuteness a culture in Japan and a fashion imperative everywhere. Hello Kitty® is a pop icon with fans ranging from four to forever, and she is OPI’s newest muse.

Hello Kitty by OPI celebrates all things happy, cute, colorful and sweet with 12 limited-edition nail lacquers and matching GelColor shades. "Hello Kitty generates happiness in a way that really resonates here at OPI, because we are seeking to do the same thing with color as our medium," says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador

"We wanted to infuse this collection with all the charm and playfulness of its namesake," adds Weiss-Fischmann, "Together with their names, these lacquers capture Hello Kitty’s world to perfection, and of course, many of the colors also echo runway trends we’ve seen for 2016.   Think delicious pinks, punchy primaries, pearly white and licorice black."

Indeed, OPI and Hello Kitty enthusiasts will face a candy store dilemma – which to choose from among Hello Kitty by OPI sweet and glittering pinks, bright reds, shimmering white shades, and more, for a limited time:

Nail Art: Holly Leaves

My first Christmas nails of the year!  I really wanted my first Christmas mani to use a base of KB Shimmer Holly Back Girl.  This polish is from KB Shimmer's Christmas 2014 line.  I'm not a big fan of crellies but there were three in the 2014 line that I love, including Holly Back Girl. 

Last year, I wore it by itself a couple times and didn't really do nail art with it.  I admired Wondrously Polished Holly Leaves mani last year and decided now was a good time to recreate it.

Nail art: dotticure

Press sample.  The first nail art I ever attempted was a dotticure.  I didn't have any special tools whatsoever.  I told my husband what I wanted to do and he dug around in his toolbox and gave me some nail punches that actually worked.  But, now that I know what I'm doing, I appreciate professional tools as they make nail art much, much easier.  Born Pretty Store provided me with a dotting/marble tool.  It is 100% better than nail punches from a toolbox.
