OPI Hawaii Collection Tropical Nail Art and International GIVEAWAY

 press sample 
Happy Friday! Yesterday ended the first of four week-long giveaways that I'm hosting in March. I'll be contacting the winner of the entire LVX Spring 2015 Collection tonight. Today kicks off the second prize, the entire OPI Hawaii Collection (12 polishes)! And even better...it's open internationally! Like the previous giveaway, simply comment on one, some, or all of my posts during the giveaway week and you're entered to win!

I used the Hawaii shades to create some Hawaiian-inspired nail art. I love the neutral in this collection, Do You Take Lei Away?...it's a great mannequin hand color for me. I used it as my base so the flowers would pop.  Before free-handing the flowers, I stamped a tropical-leaf background with My Gecko Does Tricks and plate BM-210. It created a nice, uniform backdrop.  And finally, I used Go With The Lava Flow, a fire-y gold shimmered coral, Lost My Bikini in Molokini, a pretty purple creme, and Is Mai Tai Crooked, a soft orange, to create the flowers.

OPI Hawaii Collection Tropical Nail Art

Here are all twelve polishes in this collection. The only one I'm not crazy about is the yellow, Pineapples Have Peelings Too. It's a strange mix of glitters, but I'm sure with the right occasion, it would be perfect for something! In addition to the ones I used in the nail art above, I've worn Just Lanai-ing Around and Hello Hawaii Ya? All I've tried had a great formula.

The twelve shades scream summer! Do you have a fave? Tell me in the comments and you could win every single one!
