OPI Spring 2015 Hawaii Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

So I’m really behind on this review!  I had set it aside during tax season and while moving things around I uncovered them… sorry!

So, while a little late, this is the OPI Spring 2015 Hawaii collection.  There are 12 shades in the collection and they are available now (and have been for a couple months)

Since I’m already behind, let’s just jump into the photos!

Aloha From OPI

Aloha From OPI

Aloha From OPI is one of my favorites from the collection. This is a red orange creme.  The formula was on the thinner side, but didn’t flood my cuticles and I reached full opacity in 2 coats.

Hello Hawaii Ya?

Hello Hawaii Ya? is a dusty purple creme.  I had no application issues and used 2 coats for these photos.

The below photo looks like I had application issues, but it was actually the top coat I used.  I should have grabbed the new bottle of Seche and instead of using the bottom of the bottle.

My Gecko Does Tricks

My Gecko Does Tricks

My Gecko Does Tricks is a vibrant yellow toned green shimmer.  The formula was fairly sheer  and had visible brush strokes.  I liked this better in the bottle than on the nail unfortunately.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Pineapple’s Have Peelings Too!

Pineapple's Have Peelings Too

Pineapple’s Have Peelings Too! is one shade I probably could live without.  It’s probably my least liked polish, but I know there are people out there who like it.  This is a light frosty gold base with various sizes and colors of hex glitters.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Suzi Shops & Island Hops

Suzi Shops & Island Hops

Suzi Shops & Island Hops is a light pink creme.  I had some slight streaking issues on my first 2 coats, but the third evened out.

That’s Hula-rious

That's Hula-rious

That’s Hula-rious is a light mint creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos and have actually used this a few times.  I really love this shade!

This Color’s Making Waves

This Color's Making Waves

This Color’s Making Waves is a sheer blue base with intense green shimmer and bits of holo micro glitters it looks like.  They were hard to capture.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Overview

PicMonkey Collage

Overall this was a nice collection.  There weren’t too many shades that were incredibly original in it, but they were still nice.  The most original ones for me were This Color’s Making Waves and Pineapples Have Peelings Too! For a collection of 12 polishes, I was rather surprised there weren’t too many formula issues in the collection.

I wasn’t overly impressed with this collection, but I also wasn’t disappointed with it.

Price: $9.50 retail ($5.95 CAN salon, $11.50 CAN retail)

WHERE TO FIND THEM:  ULTA, ULTA.com, and select professional salons.

What did you think of this collection?  Have you picked any up from it?
