OPI is known for launching regular mini collections, and have recently launched the OPI Hawaii Collection. Here are my thoughts;

What They Say:
Hawaii Collection by OPI brings the fresh, bright colours of its namesake island to nails and toes for Spring/Summer 2015. This new collection features a palette ranging from muted tones of mint, peach, pink and nude to bolder hues of coral, green, purple and gold to deep tones of mauve, violet, brick red and shimmery blue.
RRP: $19.95 each for a full size bottle, or $24.95 for the mini pack with 4 mini nail polishes – Available from Myer, David Jones and Selected Salons
What I Say:
Compared to previous mini collections this Hawaii Collection, which has been launched to coincide with the European Spring and Summer 2015 is rather large, featuring 12 new shades. The range features both muted tones and more bold shades, all taking inspiration from the sand and surf in Hawaii.
I have been trying out the mini kit, which includes the shades;
  • Suzi Shops & Island Hops – ‘A light and happy pink that’s the perfect travelling companion’
  • That’s Hula-Rious! – ‘Stock Up! This pastel mint green makes me dance with joy!’
  • Lost My Bikini in Molokini – ‘With this reef-inspired purple, what’s one bikini more or less?’
  • Aloha from OPI – ‘Let’s give a warm island hello to this bright creamy coral!’
Of these four shades my favourites would have to be Suzi Shops & Island Hops, which I can see myself using up in no time as it is such a classic, as well as the Aloha from OPI, which is a lovely coral shade.
I really like the mini bottles as for just $5 you get to try out several shades and not just one shade, and you still have enough polish to do several manicures, and also try out the shade. I also rarely find that use up a shade before it goes off, so that’s another reason why the mini bottles are brilliant. I just wish the full OPI range was also available for purchase a mini bottles!
Of the full collection, I do love the look of the olive colour ‘My Gecko does Tricks’ , the warm burnt orange ‘Go with the Lava Flow’ and the navy blue ‘The Colour’s Making Waves’ – and I will certainly be checking them out at the shops.
As always, the 3-free polishes are easy to apply, and has a good wear of 4-5 days with the use of a top coat.
