Manicure Monday - Hello Kitty by OPI Holiday 2019 Collection

I love the range of polishes in this collection because they aren't in your face Christmas and I love a holiday collection that offers something for everyone! I also love the little black top with the Hello Kitty bows on it. I picked up one polish from the 2016 collection and it's a gorgeous glitter, but the top was white with little Hello Kitty faces on, so I'm glad that they made this packaging a little different! 

I was so excited for this whole collection, and I have all 15 polishes swatched for today's Manicure Monday post! 

OPI Let's Be Friends
