OPI Hawaii Swatches

New OPI collections always fill me with a lot of excitement, but the new Hawaii collection is my favourite yet! I love this time of year when new collections full of pastels, with a few summer brights here and there, start hitting the shelves. I get bored of wearing autumn/winter shades very quickly!

As much as I would have loved to be able to buy the full set of 12 polishes, I have nowhere near enough money, so I bought my two favourite shades; 'That's Hula-rious!' a spring pastel green, and 'Is Mai Tai Crooked?' a peachy orange.

That's Hula-rious!
I'm loving green at the moment which is strange because up until a month or two ago I only owned 1 green polish. I usually love OPI's formulas but this was on the thin side and quite streaky, I've come to expect that from most pale shades though.
3 coats with RapiDry top coat

Is Mai Tai Crooked?
Again, orange isn't a colour I would usually go for, but 'Is Mai Tai Crooked?' really caught my eye when I was picking my favourites from the collection. The formula wasn't great to be honest, I needed 4 coats for an even finish. The name is so funny, it actually took me a while to get the pun but once I got it I couldn't stop laughing. OPI polish names are always genius!

I'm really sorry for these grainy pictures of Is Mai Tai Crooked? I don't know what happened! :(


I did a bit of quick nail art with these two colours. I'm looking forward to getting into some more spring nail art soon!

OPI Hawaii polishes are available to buy from the OPI website with a fab 'Little Hulas' mini set available too! I'm really regretting not getting 'Go With The Lava Flow' now, it looks stunning!

What do you think of these two pretty polishes? Have you got any of the Hawaii collection yet? Leave me a comment :)
