Falling Apart To Half Time is a dark teal blue jelly filled with a ton of holo pigment and iridescent flakies pieces. Great formula, opaque in two coats. Dries very shiny!
Tears On Ice is a white crelly with tiny silver glitter, two tones of blue metallic shards, and a few blue square glitters. Pretty good application wise, maybe a touch streaky. This is two coats, but you may need one more depending on your polishing style.
Underneath The Purple Skies is a deep, warm purple jelly with lots of very fine coppery gold microglitter bits. I had no issues with this when I swatched it, but I wore it as a full manicure and noticed it got a touch thick the longer I had the bottle open. This is two coats.
Gem City has a clear base with bronze holographic microglitter and multichrome metallic flakies. This can be worn on its own, like I’ve shown here at three coats, or as a layering topper. Lovely formula, not thick at all, dried fast.
Keep You Like An Oath is a medium grey crelly with different shapes and sizes of glitter in white, blue, green, magenta, along with silver microglitter. Another nice formula, great coverage at two coats.
Like You (Only Sweeter) is a unique taupey pink with a tinge of lavender, filled with small glitters of white and red along with silver holo microshimmer. Fuss free application, two coats for full opacity.
This Ain’t A Scene is a mid-tone teal base with a gallon of multichrome flakies and what looks like some glass fleck shimmer. I am repeating myself, but these all have really great formulas. Two coats.
Immortals has a clear base filled with pale gold holographic microglitter, small orangey gold metallic glitter, and some metallic flakies. This was surprisingly opaque, only two coats on this guy.
Heavy Metal Broke My Heart is another clear based polish, this one is definitely a topper though. It has multicolored metallic flakies in all different sizes and subtle holographic dust. This is very dense, I used one coat over Underneath The Purple Skies here.
You Look So Good In Blue is a medium blue jelly with a turquoise tone filled to the brim with soft flake shimmer, holo glitter and some satiny glitter pieces. Can you guess how it applied? Yup, you guessed it, really great in just two coats.
Light Em Up is a yellow gold shimmery crelly with metallic flakies and holographic microglitter. This is actually an add-on polish and not technically part of this collection. It was a prototype shade for the inspiration that eventually became Immortals, but lots of members of the fan group liked it so much she decided to release it as well. Another fabulous formula, nice and opaque in two coats.
The Frenzy Polish web shop is closed right now but they will reopen this Friday, Feb. 12th at 8am EST. These shades are all sold for $9 each, and you can get the entire collection (excluding Light Em Up) for $80. Light Em Up will be available in very limited quantities. Have you tried Frenzy Polish yet? Are you a Fall Out Boy fan? I’ll talk to you again soon friends! 🙂
Nine Zero Lacquer February 2016 Polish of the Month Swatch & Review
This polish is an insanely sparkly periwinkle holographic with super fine silver holo glitter added for even more bling! This surprised me by applying incredibly smoothly, like the glitter doesn’t really even seem like glitter because it’s so smooth. Opaque in two coats. Freaked out my camera, it just couldn’t handle the holo!
This polish is available now on the Nine Zero Lacquer website for $11., but since these are limited edition for the month they are released in, it’s no longer available. So make sure you pick this baby up during February if you want it because it will be retired after the month is over! Let me know what you think about this pretty periwinkle!
OPI 5 Apples Tall is a beautiful fruity red crème with a hint of coral pink. Amazing formula, and opaque in two coats. Super pretty and just different enough of a red for me to get excited for it.
OPI Look at My Bow! is a sweet light pink crème with the slightest touch of lavender. A little streaky, but I was able to cover them in three coats. This is such a perfect, girly pink!
OPI My Twin Mimmy is a bright sunny yellow crème, named for Kitty’s twin Mimmy’s bow color! Yellow is a hard color to get in a good formula, but this one was not bad! Three coats for full coverage.
OPI Starry Eyed For Dear Daniel is a fuchsia pink jelly with small silver hex glitters. I might spy some purple shimmer in there too, not sure. Daniel is Hello Kitty’s boyfriend in case you didn’t know, so cute. This applied really nicely and was opaque in just two coats.
OPI Let’s Be Friends! is a very pale cloud-like pink. So pale it’s almost white, but you can tell it’s not. This formula was a tad thick, and a bit streaky. I used three coats here to cover the streaks. I’ve heard other folks have had no trouble with this though, so it might have been me.
OPI My Pal Joey is a super saturated primary blue crème. Amazing formula, probably the best in the bunch! Two coats here. Joey is one of Hello Kitty’s friends, and he’s a mouse!
OPI Charmmy & Sugar has a sheer shimmery pink iridescent base with small hex glitters in soft rainbow colors. This could be used as a topper, but I build it up in three coats. I think this is the only shade in the collection I don’t care for, it has too much going on for me. But I like the name, which are Hello Kitty’s pet cat and hamster’s names.
OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends is a basic black crème. I felt this was kinda out of place in the collection, but realized it’s great for all that Hello Kitty nail art that you can do! It actually has a wonderful formula, dries shiny and is almost but not quite a one coater. I used two coats here. This might be the best black from a mainstream brand I’ve ever tried!
OPI Small + Cute = ❤ is a baby pink crème with a touch of peach. This is quite beautiful, I really love this color on me but I found the formula to be finicky. A little thin and streaky, I needed three coats for even coverage. Another one that I’ve heard other people say they had no problems with though, *shrug*.
OPI Spoken from the Heart is actually my favorite shade in the whole collection, a sweet juicy coral jelly crème! More jelly than crelly but still crème-like, if that makes any sense! Lovely formula, and the only reason I used three coats was to cover my nail line a little more. SWOON! This reminds me of the Texas collection sorbets, but more opaque.
OPI Kitty White is a white shimmer. A polish that will probably never be fully opaque, but it builds up on itself pretty well. I recommend letting this dry for a little longer than normal between coats to avoid dragging. This is three coats, but you could also layer this one of any of the crèmes. This is the type of shimmer particle that gets everywhere so be careful with removal. Did you know Kitty White is Hello Kitty’s full name??
OPI Super Cute In Pink is a pink crelly with a purple tone. Applied really nice and even, but with the thinner formula you can still see nail line with two coats, so I used three. Kind of a funny name to put on this shade with so much purple in it!
There is also a special edition shade called Say Hello Kitty! that comes in a box with some Swarovski crystal bow charms. You can see swatches of that one and some comparisons of these colors on my friend Karen’s blog BeautyGeeks. Oh I almost forgot, all of these shades have special white plastic shrink-wrapped caps with Hello Kitty on them too, which is pretty darn cute! This collection is available now wherever OPI is sold for around $9.50 per bottle. Let me know what you think of these pretty colors! Are you a Hello Kitty fan?
