Today I have my review of the new OPI Hawaii Collection.

· Hello Hawaii Ya?
· This Color’s Making Waves
· Lost My Bikini In Molokini
· Pineapples Have Peelings Too!
That's Hula-rious! - bright pastel green. I LOVE this shade! Coverage was fantastic in two coats.
Is Mai Tai Crooked? - a brilliant, muted orange. I applied two coats and found it to be a tad streaky. Awesome color!
My Gecko Does Tricks - pretty green shimmer. I applied two coats and still had VNL, so I applied a third.
Go With the Lava Flow - described as a golden red but every time I looked at it, it changed tone. It is a very interesting shade and a great color. I applied two coats.
Do You Take Lei Away? - perfect soft nude. I applied two flawless coats.
Aloha From OPI - bright, creamy coral. I applied two great coats.
Suzi Shops and Island Hops - bubble gum pink. It was thin and streaky in two coats. I added a third.
This Color's Making Waves - gorgeous duochrome with copper flecks. I LOVE this lacquer! The formula is a tad thin. You can get away with two coats but I applied a third.
Just Lanai-ing Around - beautiful color of the year - mauve. I noticed a subtle shimmer however it is not in the official description. Great coverage in two coats.
Lost My Bikini In Molokini - perfect purple, however I lost it in the photos. I could not capture this color in the photos! You really need to see it in person. Another perfect two coater.
Hello Hawaii Ya? - soft and dusty purple. Another fabulous shade. I applied two coats.
Pineapples Have Peelings Too! - fun glitter mix in a yellow/gold base. I had a hard time getting the larger hexes out of the bottle and on my nails. I did only apply two coats so maybe another one would have give me more. I am going to have some fun with this one. Can you say Summer nail art??
I used most of these lacquers to create this floral manicure.
