OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends: .....it's a black....it's an okay black. This is two coats and there's no way to get away with one coat. It's a two coater black.

OPI Look at My Bow!: this is a cute medium pink. I like this pink. Two coats, no top coat.

OPI 5 Apples Tall: this is a nice apple red with a great formula. Two coats, no top coat.

OPI Kitty White: pearly white with a sparkle. I'm not a big fan of this type of polish. It's just too sheer for my liking. I stopped at three coats with this. It would look a lot better over a white base.

OPI Let's be Friends!: the first time I used this I went in with the wrong mindset. I needed to even it out with four coats. I'm not sure what I was thinking because this is an almost white pastel. So, for this swatch, I treated it like a pastel. I did two semi thick coats with a light touch and one thin coat with top coat.

*****This one was not included in the six piece collector's box. I bought a mini pack with a dotting tool. Why would I do that since I loathe minis? Because I have a problem. I wanted the Hello Kitty dotting tool and I bought minis just to get one. Soooooo, here's a swatch of the one shade that is different from the above swatches.
OPI My Twin Mimmy: I had such an awful time applying this. The fact it was a mini might've factored in, but I doubt it. This is four frustrating coats and then I just slapped a top coat on hoping it would look okay. I don't like yellow anyway, so I definitely would not have bought a full size. This is a primary color yellow, not like OPI I Just Can't Copacabana. I don't have OPI Good Grief because it is also a primary color yellow and I don't buy those yellows, but I have a sneaking suspicion this is a lot like Good Grief.

Overall, I'm just alright with these. I think I hyped this collection too much in my head. My favorites are Let's be Friends and Starry Eyed for Dear Daniel. There are a couple more I wish I had but I'll probably wait a bit for those.
I wanted to do a nail art look to tie in with the Hello Kitty theme. All I could think of was bows, so I did this look using my two favorites:
OPI Hello Kitty collection can be purchased at ULTA Beauty, Beauty Brands, and many other salons and retailers.
