Hello to cute nails!!!
Minty and Blueberry.
As part of the upcoming and highly anticipated Hello Kitty by Sephora line, here are two nail colors from the collection. If you missed our first look, click here. Sephora had a two day private shopping event online for VIBs, and even when I got to the sale on the first day, many of the items were sold out. I was able to grab two of the Liquid Nail Art ($10) colors in Minty, a pastel Shamrock Shake green, and Blueberry, a blurple creme, and a set of Nail Art Stickers ($5) in Classic Icons.
I was hoping that this line's products would have some substance, and it wouldn't be all about the packaging. Generally, I steer away from bottles that are short. The short neck leads to a short brush, short handle, meaning less control of the overall application. I also found the formula a little thick. I couldn't find the exact amount on the bottle, but it does seem small.
Hello Kitty Blueberry and Orly Snowcone.
These two are similar but not a complete exact match. Blueberry has a little bit more of a purple base. Snowcone is just more of a straight up medium blue creme.
Blueberry with Classic Icons Nail Art Stickers.
Nail Art Stickers in Classic Icons.
The Nail Art Stickers come in four varieties Classic Icons, Lace, Modern Icons, and Rhinestone Flowers and are $5 each.
Hello Kitty Minty and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet.
Now these were **exact** dupes. I swatched them on alternating fingers and could not see any difference what so ever. I prefer the Sally Hansen however. The application and formula are just a lot nicer. Also a bottle is only $2.99.

Can you tell the difference? I can't!
So is this line all about the packaging? At $10 a polish, for not such a great polish, I would say yes.
When does cute packaging mean more than quality product? Or does it all have to come together?
