OPI Charmmy & Sugar bottle

“Sparkly pink for pretty pets.”

In February I got an e-mail from OPI announcing their Hello Kitty by OPI collection. I was immediately attracted to it, the collection contains a lot of pink shades and glitter, can it be any better than this? Hello Kitty by OPI celebrates all things happy, cute, colorful and sweet with 12 limited-edition polishes and matching GelColor shades.

This collection consists of the following polishes:

Color

OPI Charmmy & Sugar has a light pink base color that has a gorgeous pink pearl shine to it. The polish is packed with a subtle blue micro glitter and bigger pink, silver and blue hex glitter. It’s a very shiny polish with a sweet look.

Formula

For a polish which contains so much glitter has OPI Charmmy & Sugar it still has a very nice formula, its thickness almost perfect. The glitter spreads evenly over the nail so you don’t have to apply it by dabbing. If you apply it over a base color one thin layer will be sufficient. To make it completely opaque, you need three thin layers.

OPI Charmmy & Sugar contains the famous Pro-Wide brush. This is a very nice brush of good quality. It is quite wide so it can be difficult if you have a very narrow nail bed, you can turn brush so that you can work with the narrow side.

Finish

Due to the large amount of glitter this polish contains it dries with a light structure. Because the finish isn’t that rough you can give it a nice smooth finish with just one thin coat of a thicker topcoat.
