Hello Kitty Beauty

Just before Christmas, Sephora had a preview sale of the Hello Kitty products that are scheduled to launch later this month. Given my weakness for cuteness, it's some sort of miracle that I only bought three nail polishes (of eight colors available): Pink Sprinkles, Banana Cream, and Purple Sprinkles.



I'm not usually a big fan of yellows, but Banana Cream impressed me. It was well behaved, especially for a pastel, going on in three coats with minimal streaking.



I added two coats of Pink Sprinkles and got a look that made me think of springtime.





I only had time to swatch Purple Sprinkles on my thumb; I liked it it a lot. I did two coats and added top coat because it seemed a little bumpy on its own. I was surprised at how pigmented the base was and loved the dustiness of that base color contrasted with the glitter bits.





These were US$10 for 9 ml, so one definitely pays a premium for the kitty head bottle; in the case of Banana Cream and Purple Sprinkles, I think is was worth it. Pink Sprinkles doesn't seem as special, but still—kitty head bottle.

  3. Those are so cute, but the polish itself just seems kinda meh to me. And $10 for 9ml isn't too bad...

  13. Thanks, everyone!

    Joan, no scent for the Banana Cream--other than nail polish smell. :)

    Loucas por Esmaltes, Obrigado! Eu não tenho nenhum para venda. Talvez você pode encontrar no eBay? (Espero que isso funcione tradução!)

  14. The specialness of these is definitely in the packaging but they still make for a very pretty manicure.

  15. This are really cute but the price + size = over priced in my opinion.
