NAILS | #ManiMonday Valentine's Day with the OPI Hello Kitty Collection!

I'm Asian so OBVIOUSLY I have to love Hello Kitty, right? Well, I have to say that it wasn't until my 20s that my girl HK really made her way into my life. I am selective about what I own that is branded Hello Kitty so you won't catch me cleaning my place with a Hello Kitty vacuum cleaner or cooking with a Hello Kitty rice cooker! A nail polish collaboration though? Hell, yes. The newly released Hello Kitty Collection from nail polish greats OPI will have you "kawaii-ing" until the cows come home! Every shade in the collection is perfectly Sanrio in every way and though there are some shades you will probably have, there are a few that had me squealing!
 

Every year I endeavor to do at least one Valentine's Day manicure and last year was all about
50 Shades of Grey so there were no pink manis to be had on the blog at all! Not the case this year especially with a nail polish collection like this!


I started off with three very thin coats of OPI - Look at my Bow!*, a creme girly pink. I could have been done with two, but creme shades can be streaky sometimes and I wanted as smooth a finish as possible. For the accent nail, I applied three coats of OPI - Charmmy & Sugar*, my new favourite multi-coloured glitter! There is a little bit of VNL visible, but you'll be too focused on the glitter to notice!


I wanted to create some "sketch-style" hearts so I used a dotting tool to create some hearts with OPI - Super Cute in Pink*, a creme purple-pink, that I would wear everyday if forced to. I roughly outlined the hearts with black acrylic paint and a fine brush and sealed everything in with top coat.


Happy Monday everyone!
