Hawaii is home to hula dancing and hula skirts, fresh tropical fruits, dramatic lush green scenery, bright flowers, glorious sunsets, surfing and volcanoes. It is also the inspiration for OPI’s latest nail polish collection, the OPI Hawaii Collection!

The OPI Hawaii Collection consists of 12 shades of nail polish ranging from gorgeous pastel shades of mint, peach, pink and nude, to bolder and brighter shades of coral, green, purple and yellow to deeper tones of mauve, violet, brick red and shimmery blue.

Each shade has a cute Hawaiian associated name, such as “Lost My Bikini in Molokini”, “Hello Hawaii Ya?” and “Go With The Lava Flow” that I just love! Yes, in addition to loving beauty products, I’m also a bit of a word nerd who loves word puns!

I was very happy and grateful to receive a selection of three nail polishes from the OPI Hawaii Collection to trial including the bright coral shade “Aloha from OPI”, the rockmelon/peach shade “Is Mai Tai Crooked?” (another shade name I totally love)  and the gorgeous pastel green minty shade “That’s Hula-rious!”

My favourite is definitely “That’s Hula-rious!”. It’s such a gorgeous pastel green minty shade I had to put it on immediately. It also perfectly matched my colourful and sparkley kaftan top that I was wearing to my nephew’s birthday party that night! Double win!

I love the creamy formula of “That’s Hula-rious!”. It was completely opaque with the second coat. My nails in the following photos have two coats of “That’s Hula-rious!” plus a base and top coat. 

This polish lasted perfectly on my nails for 5 whole days. On the 6th day two small chips appeared. I was really happy with this as I do a lot of typing at work, and housework and dishes (ewwww!) at home.

I love a bargain, as does everyone I suspect, so let me pass on the cheapest website I’ve found to buy new OPI Hawaii Collection nail polishes. It’s Ry Australia. Click HERE to shop
