OPI Hawaii Collection (Partial) Swatches and NOTD


Writing here after a long time. I have been little busy and little lazy these days catching up with family and getting all pampering.  I have these swatches with me from start of this month. 

Opi released Hawaii collection for spring 2015.  This collection has total twelve shades of various finishes which ranges from pastels, shimmers, frost and cremes.  Today, i have swatches of four creme shades from this collection with me.

First up is Do You Take Lei Away is a nude creme. Formula is nice and application is non patchy. Opacity is also good, i used two coats for the pictures and applied a layer of top coat.

Is Mai Tai Crooked is orange creme. This shade will look more nice on lighter skin tones, on my nails it looked neon-ish. Formula and application is nice and smooth. Applied two coats and top coat for following pictures.
