The buzz is strong for the OPI Hawaii Collection among beauty lovers worldwide(you can see the full review and swatches HERE). The fresh and tropical colours have hit the “must-have” beauty list for many. Although the majority of the collection is to die for (there does seem to be some skeptism over the yellow glitter polish “Pineapples Have Peelings Too” , the question remains….do you have to buy all the shades if you have something similar in your collection already?
I’ve had many requests to do a swatch comparison of OPI Hawaii, so in this post I’m comparing two of my favourite hues from the collection – “That’s Hula-arious” and “Aloha from OPI”, to other nail polishes in my own collection. I hope it helps! If there are other comparisons you want to see with any of the other colours from OPI Hawaii, please let me know in the comments section at the end of the post.
OPI Hawaii: That’s Hula-arious Swatch Comparison
OPI Hula-arious is definitely a little different than OPI Gargantuan Green Grape. The forumla is creamier and takes only 2 coats for full opacity compared to the lighter formula of Gargantuan Green Grape, where I feel 3 coats are necessary for full coverage. OPI That’s Hula-arious is every so slightly lighter.
OPI Hawaii: Aloha from OPI
OPI Aloha from OPI is so close to OPI Cajun Shrimp, OPI Red Lights Ahead Where? and essie clambake that if you have one of these, you probably don’t “need” the other. Lining the bottles up side by side, they are practically identical.
Swatch sticks always look slightly different then the nail polish when it’s actually on your nails, but for comparison sake, they are great to see any differences.So do you really need my two most coveted colours from the OPI Hawaii Collection? Well perhaps “really need” might not be the case, but no will will judge you if you “really want”.
Until next time,
