These are the 12 colours in the OPI Hawaii Collection. Click on the below links to see my in-depth reviews with swatches:
My favourite post is the one about your colour by Pretty Serious. It is a gorgeous green and I have been lemming it since you posted it. I’m going to have to buy that one soon!
I think my favorite post is the Rudolph nails, because they just make me smile!!! Love your blog!
How exciting! My latest favourite post is the one where you share which Marsala inspired projects you have. I also love it for color of the year, now I just need to find Touch Of Spice! Xoxo
I actually liked Smorgasbord Sundays! 🙂
As of recent, I like your Pantone clot of the year post. “Marsala!” I love the different variety of colors you reviewed. All pretty much the same tones but yet they look a little different(I favor more neutral tones). This color is pretty rich and I will try a few products to see if they complement my darker skin tone.
I really liked your post on your pretty serious nail polish color. I love that you got to design your own color, and it’s gorgeous!
I live when you reveal new collections that are coming out. If I haven’t seen the collection yet, I feel like I’m getting a sneak peak!
My favourite post is the Santa Clause Nails. I did them over the holidays and they were so cute 🙂
I liked the review of Wonderblur by The Body Shop – i am interested in trying this product.
I really enjoy the make up review. I think the best one was about the glide on eye pencils!
My favorite is comparison post with some of the OPI Hawaii polishes. It was really helpful deciding which ones I didn’t really need.
I like the beauty tools posts, especially the Nail stamping post. I’ve been wanting to try nail stamping for a while!
A while back you did a blog post on statement necklaces, which I thought was great. It made me want to get brave enough to try it myself. I also liked your reviews of OPI’s Hawaii collection too.
My favorite posts were actually not polish related but when you posted your wreck this journal because I got inspired by your designs! Of course, I love your swatches too but I like to see some of your personality outside of nail polish come through sometimes too.
I loved the OPI Hawaii media launch recap post. I watched it so many times! You giving us such an intimate first look at new products is very exciting for me 🙂
I like any of the posts where you swatch new colors. Love to see what they look like on before I purchase one.
I really like the FedoraHarp Raindrops on Roses Swatches & Review , I love blues and the polish is fun , I have never heard of this brand but would really love to get some for my daughter and I
My fave blog is the one about New York fashion week Essie New York Fashion Week Recap: Day 5
I adore Carolina Herrea designs and the dark red nails were lovely and vampy (Essie Shearling Darling)
I like the posts about Fashion Week and the nails. I’m really not much into the latest fashion trends but it’s really interesting to see the nails on the runway. Seeing how different my tastes are from “fashion experts” is really interesting, I haven’t seen any other nail blogs do that, so thanks! 🙂
My favourite post of yours (or at least one of my favourites) is your swatches of your Pretty Serious polish! What an awesome story & colour 🙂
I especially loved your NYFW recaps! Oh and all of the beautiful nail colors that you feature – wow!!!
Sarah Jordan recently posted: Featured Friday – Past Your Porchlight
My favorite post is any of your a-England reviews. I love seeing their new colors, and you have great photography.
I love when you do swatches of new colors and comparisons between 2 or more similar colors. It’s great to see the polishes “in the nail” (LOL). Thanks for having a great blog and best of luck to everyone!
I like a lot of your posts but if I have to pick just one it would be your Batiste Dry Shampoo Wild review. The reason is I had been wanting to try out a dry shampoo but did not know which one to pick. I bought this one you reviewed and was happy with it.
My favourite post of yours is the one exploring the Naileontology collection! It was so cute and witty and that green is absolutely beautiful!
I love your swatch review posts. They are very detailed and definitely my favourite
I like the post “The Body Shop Satsuma Body Sorbet Review & Pictures” because this is a product I’m interested in trying and your review was very thorough and gave me an idea of what I can expect in this product.
My favorite is actually a series? Your Fashion Week recaps! I like fashion but love nail polish so it’s really great to see what colors are being used in the shows. Thank you for the giveaway!
My favorite posts are where you share the events you’ve attended- especially the ones with Suzi! Reading your descriptions makes it feel like I was there, your enthusiasm is addictive!
I don’t have a particular favorite post but I love swatch posts because I love to see how new colors actually look on the nail and not just in the bottle. Those types of posts are very helpful and fun to read/look at.
My favorite posts of yours are your comparison swatches! They’re so informative and they always help me decide how badly I need (or sometimes don’t need) a polish. My wallet and I thank you!
I really liked your OPI Do You Take Lei Away Swatches & Review. I feel like we have the same skin tone so I love your recommendations.
My favorite recent post was the one about dupes for Is Mai Tai Crooked and Aloha from OPI – these type of posts are very helpful for deciding if I need the new polishes or if I already have a dupe!
I like the Beauty Blender solid cleaner review. Because, I’m still using their liquid cleanser, but when I run out I think I’ll try the solid cleanser.
I loved your Santa Claus nail tutorial, they’re so cute! 🙂
I honestly can’t pick just one post, but I love your swatches and reviews and how organized your posts are. 🙂 Thanks for the chance!
Hard to pick, but the one post that really sticks out in my mind is the one you did on A England’s Briar Rose polish. That post introduced me to A England as a brand. I eventually ordered St. George, which is still in my untried pile, but just recently I decided to order some more and I came back to your post on Briar Rose to make my decision. Or maybe I should say to NOT make a decision, because I ended up with Briar Rose AND Rose Bower, because they’re both so pretty! Today I’m sporting another A England, Dancing with Nureyev, which is such a unique color. And I owe it all to your Briar Rose post. ; )
I am relatively new to your blog, but I LOVE it!!! So my favorite blog post is the first one I ever saw, which was coincidentally the OPI Hawaii Collection Media Launch Recap, because it helped me get introduced to your fabulous blog!!! 🙂
I love swatch posts of new or newer collections so I can see how each color will look and I can accurately choose what ones I want to purchase.
My fave is the post about the Pretty Serious Swatch & Learn color. I could feel your excitement & enthusiasm . The color’s great by the way.
Loved your Essie New York Fashion Week Recaps as I love to keep up with whats trendy.
Loved your take on OPI Pineapple have peelings too. I was contemplating buying this one until your review.
I loved your post about the press event for the launch of the Hawaii collection! I loved seeing the photos of the food 🙂
I love the giveaways because it’s a chance to win some awesome nailpolish!
i love the rudolph nail so cute
I love make up review because i can find new looks
http://www.swatchandlearn.com/eye-of-the-day-green-brown-look/ it gives me ideas
I loved your Sedu blowdryer review. It was very thorough and I love reading about hair products.
I love the first post you did in the “Nail polish on men” series, primarily because of the colors – I loved them! Also, I love that you have friends who don’t care about gender when it comes to nail polish. I think it’s necessary to get out of the gender stereotypes, and what you’re doing is really fun!
I love your Essie New York Fashion Week Recap series! Absolutely a huge Essie fan, and your “coverage” of the event helped me keep in the loop!
“Only a fellow Nailphile would understand this” haha, I liked it, I’m not a Nailphile
I loved the Nail Art Tutorial: Santa Claus Nails post – it’s one of the only nail art design that I felt compelled to paint. My nieces and nephews loved it. My little niece asked me to paint that on her nails too
I like your What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag because its nice to know what other people use
My favorite posts of yours– have to be those when you met Suzi! Your absolute excitement and enthusiasm about meeting the legend came across so well, it was like all of us nail lovers were there with you! Thanks for giving us an insider’s peek on those press days!
My favourite is the garnier bb cream review. I found it really useful, and full of great info. I loved how you included actual pictures, and made the review personal (like always). Your reviews seem to be really honest, and I love that.
Hey girly! Hmm it would have to be the blog post you did about my Kim K beanie! It turned out amazing! I would L O V E this set of nail polish so I can look good in my video tutorials! You know I need help with that!
You asked for the near impossible. There’s no way I can choose just one post. Sorry, just not possible for me. My favorites are the ones with Color Club swatches and reviews. I am so in love with them! They look so beautiful and I literally can just stare at your pictures. Thanks for being fab!
I enjoyed your New York Fashion Week reports. Love reading about new trends!
I like Knitting a Green Beanie. That post inspired me to pick up my knitting project again.
My favorite post is the Konad tutorial. I love the look and wasn’t familiar with the product, and find the tutorial informative. http://www.swatchandlearn.com/konad-tutorial-how-to-use-the-konad-stamping-kit-to-create-easy-nail-art-plus-konad-stamping-kit-review/
Any post about painting men’s nails! If I had to pick one, I’d say the one with the caviar beads. 🙂
My favorite blog post(s) are about a-england. I am a big fan of their polishes. I think I own almost every one of them. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next, so I really look forward to those!
I don’t have one in particular, but my favorite posts are when you share your nail art.
My favorite posts are when you go to the OPI events and launch parties and take us along to meet Suzi. I loved the Hawaii launch party! So fun and festive
I like nail polish on men. I think it’s great that you can get men to participate.
I loved the fashion week posts. Always so fun to see and hear people opinions of all the craziness going on
Well to be honest I was just sent to your blog to enter this giveaway, so I’d have to say this is my favorite blog post so far, haha. I’ll be following you now though so I’m sure I’ll have a better answer if I ever get asked again 😛
i enjoy reading about the new collections that are hitting shelves
I like your OPI My Gecko Does Tricks Swatches & Review post.
What a beautiful and unique color
My recent favorite is your post on OPI Aloha from OPI because it’s a fabulous color!
I like the green beanie story, I home with my baby right now and I really want to get into knitting . It seems like it would be a nice hobby to have.
I love your Pretty Serious post since not only is the brand wonderful but your pictures are perfect.
MarciaF recently posted: Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue wants to help you rethink your makeup
I love seeing your reviews on different polishes as well as new collections.
I like the skin review articles,,I love learning about new skincare products and how well they work. This one is nice 🙂 “http://www.swatchandlearn.com/the-body-shop-wild-argan-oil-shower-gel-review-pictures/”
One of my favourite posts on Swatch and Learn is the one showing your current knitting project – hats! I remember I went off to find the perfect yarn (bright turquoise) and then went to work. It’s my favourite knitting project so far, I have worn it so many times and have gotten many compliments! I have plans to make a bright purple and then a neon coral one. 🙂
I loved – How to Perform CPR on Nail Polish – that was SUPER helpful.
I like the haircare review it has given me more input on different shampoos as I only stick to one now I will change
I can’t choose a particular one, but I love all of your reviews! They are so helpful
My favorite blog post was the one of your first meeting with Suzi of OPI.
I LOVE Hawaii! Got married there and spent six years living on Oahu.
I love the post about the rainbow dotted manicure that you did. i seem to have a thing for polka-dots! LOL!
I love all your comparison posts actually. I love the way you show the bottles and swatches on the nail wheel. You’ve done some on this collection actually that I’ve enjoyed.
I Like the Quick Look: OPI Hawaii Collection Swatches, Photos & Press Release because, like most of your quick look post, it allows me to see what is coming before the complete review is out and this way I can make my decision on which ones to buy. You also seem to always have the inside scoop on the upcoming collections because before I see it anywhere I can trust you already have a sneek peak of the same thing!
I love your fashion week recaps!!
I really liked your Marsala post because originally I didn’t think I liked the color of the year but it really expanded my mind into using it for nail colors and lipstick.
Erin Ortiz recently posted: Valentine’s Polish! Seche Vite Rendezvous Review from Live, Love, Polish
My favourite posts are the ones that go backstage at the fashion shows. I love swatches and reviews and I eat up comparisons, but yours is the only blog I know of that covers the fashion shows, and l am really into following colour trends.
Beautiful collection, Hope I win!!!!! 🙂
I’m not sure I have one favorite post, but I loved your Fashion Week recaps!
My favourite posts are your posts on nail art. I really liked the Nail Art Tutorial: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Nails. I like to see all the different designs you come up with.
This one because of the giveaway
When I first heard about the OPI Hawaii collection, I started searching for sites to see swatches and reviews. That’s when I first discovered your site. My favourite post was from the PR launch from October. After reading your review from that event…I was hooked. I signed up to receive emails from you (first time I’ve ever felt the need to do that). Since then, I have enjoyed the daily messages 🙂 Thanks!
My favorite post is “OPI Do You Take Lei Away? Swatches & Review” because it made me buy the polish!
I’m new to your blog and read about your meeting other bloggers when you got to meet Suzi with OPI. I liked reading about how other bloggers helped to put new life into your thoughts about blogging. I also liked the Green Dotticure post. I’m not a green polish person, but I liked how you put the two together!
I’m new to this blog and I don’t have one particular favorite post, but I really love how you review each shade of new collections separately like for the OPI Hawaii collection. Your reviews are thorough and it’s great to have one post focused on one polish color so it is easier for us, nail polish addicts, to decide buying it or not.
My favorite post.. hmm.. this is wayyy too difficult.. I love all of your reviews of course! I don’t think I could pick a favorite though! My most recent loved blog post has to be “Marsala: Pantone’s Colour of the Year”. I love your product round up for the colour!
I love the Rudolph Nail Art Tutorial, because it was so cute and festival for the previous holiday season and a fun way to celebrate! (http://www.swatchandlearn.com/nail-art-tutorial-rudolph-the-red-nosed-reindeer-nails/) I still think your rudolph faces are better than anything I could create- but it was a fun one to read over and I adored that brown accent from Nicole by OPI- That’s Just Plain Nuts.
My favorite post on here are the swatches of the Hawaii Collection. I really like those tropical colors!
I enjoy when you swatch new colors. It makes it easier for me to see what I want to buy.
I love your post on the Pantone color of the year: marsala. I’ve never really understood why certain colors in cosmetics tend to trend in a particular year until last year. Your post was the first I saw that listed Marsala add the color of the year. I really liked how you broke down exactly what the color is and what you liked about the color. I’m also a little happy that it works well with my skintone. I can’t wait to break out my Marsala polish. Thanks for the post!
I love the Nail Art: OPI Liquid Sand Nails with Tiffany Case & Honey Ryder post!! it is a great nail art idea that I love to do!
I like the Nail stamping post. 🙂
My favorite post was the Pretty Serious Moments Til Midnight swatch post, I LOVE that polish!
I always love your swatch posts because they are so detailed!
My favorite are always the nail art posts 🙂
Holiday nail art posts (esp. the Santa one) 🙂
I love your nail art posts because they are cute and not intimidating, so I want to try them myself! Your green dotticure is one of my favorites, because it’s simple and pretty.
I really enjoyed the http://www.swatchandlearn.com/opi-this-colors-making-waves-swatches-review/ because I instantly thought mermaid! as soon as I saw the color!! I also really enjoyedhttp://www.swatchandlearn.com/opi-my-gecko-does-tricks-swatches-review/ because I love green nail polish for football season and St. Paddy’s day! Thanks so much!
I love learning about make up and personal opinions. Keep up the good work!
Oh my goodness,girl! I love all of these colors- this would be so much fun to win! My favorite post is still your Nail Art: Neon Rainbow Dotticure! I love it so much- and all of the colors. I will one day try to re-do the look on my nails, once they grow! You are awesome at what you do!
I like the nail art tutorials but had an interest in readng about the Pantone colour of the year – Marsala. I liked seeing the different products and I was a fan of this gorgeous shade even before they named it 2015’s “it” colour!
This new post (http://www.swatchandlearn.com/inglot-o2m-breathable-nail-polish/#more-61195) about Inglot breathable nail polish is great! I’ve not heard of the brand and didn’t realize there was such a thing. I’m going to have to look into breathable nail polish.
Mine is the MAC 239 Review & Pictures because I was trying to figure out if MAC brushes were really worth the price so this really helped!
This is my favorite post:
Because I was so excited to see the color you created!
I enjoyed the Rudolph nails, because I love everything and anything to do with cute nails!
My favorite posts are the smorgasbord Sundays when you talked about your Wreck This Journal. It inspired me to go out and get one. I’m a graphic design major so any type or creativity exercise is fun for me. I also love any and all of your polish swatch posts. I’m also a nailphile with a ridiculously large collection so I love seeing ones that I need to add 🙂

The Eye of the Day: Green & Yellow Look was great. I enjoy doing up my eyes and this would be so pretty for the Spring. The collection of OPI Hawaii is lovely too…TY
My favorite blog posts on this website are always the swatches! They always give me an idea of what polish to get or steer clear of!!
Thank you for the giveaway! I am so happy that I found your blog.
i love the Marsala inspired post
I loved the Rudolph nails the most

my favorite post so far is the news that there will be a Nicole by OPI Coca-Cola Collection, I bought the OPI coca cola red and it’s one of my favorites!! to bad its not a permanent color, Im so happy that nicole is going to launch that collection
I just found your blog and I enjoyed reading your story My Exclusive Interview with Bill Baker, the Owner of Consonant Skincare. I learned a little bit too, especially the bit about not re-washing your face in the morning. (if you washed before going to bed). Not sure I can do that, but it might be worth a try since I am finding as I age my skin has become much drier. Good article. I wish I still lived in Toronto sometimes 🙂
OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini because i love purples and i dont have this one… yet !
I liked the haul of shame. It was cute and funny.
I like the reviews section of the website but hair care in particular. I was looking for info on dry shampoo and was able to find your review here Batiste Dry Shampoo Wild Review & Pictures
My favorite post is any one of the posts that reviewed the different looks at NY Fashion Week! I love these posts bc althought I’ll probably never get to attend a show at NYFW, the posts make me a feel a little like I’m there! I also like the Pantine Color of the Year post. I always try to guess what the color of the year will be…..although I’ve yet to be correct. Lol! Keep up the awesome work!
“OPI Helps the Next Generation of Nail Techs with $25,000 in Beauty Industry Scholarships” was my favorite so far! I think it is amazing when companies reach out to help others like that!
LOVE this collection!
I like most of all your swatches and reviews, all of them really, but to give just one example: “OPI That’s Hula-rious! Swatches & Review”.
