OPI Hong Kong Collection Swatches

I recently picked up a few polishes from the new OPI Hong Kong collection.

Meet Me on the Star Ferry, Bling Dynasty, Jade is the New Black

Meet Me on the Star Ferry
I love this colour, it's a purple but has a pinkish sheen to it. It applied well, this is 2 coats here.

Bling Dynasty
Love the name. It certainly is very bling! Such a beautiful, rich gold colour that applied wonderfully in 2 coats. I've been wearing this as my manicure all week and couldn't stop staring at my nails!

Jade is the New Black
This seems to be the most talked about from the collection. I didn't even think I was that into green polishes, but when I saw this, I knew I had to get it. Boy, am I glad that I did. I don't have anything even close to this in my collection and I absolutely love it. It also applied like a dream, so smooth. This is 2 coats.

Did you get anything from this collection? What do you think of these polishes?


  1. Awesome swatches :-) I haven't branched out much to OPI, cause they are pricey. Great choice of colours

  2. I bought "meet me at the star ferry" and the pearl one (which isn't worth it!!) Its funny cuz the gold and the green polishes were the first ones I was eying because of their unique colors. :)

  3. Girl you are killing me with all these gorgeous polishes. I really want Jade is the new Black. Do you know if this is a limited edition shade?

  4. @Halifax - sometimes I see good deals on mini sets of OPI at Trade Secrets. It's a good way to try out a few colours! :)

    @Edna - Yeah the pearl one seemed pretty sheer to me, it's a pretty colour but I like my polishes more opaque. Meet Me at the Star Ferry is a great one! :)

    @marisol - The whole collection is limited edition and Jade is the New Black seems to be the most talked about on polish blogs I've seen, so if you want it, you shouldn't wait too long! Sorry for being an enabler hehe :)

  5. Im usually a shimmer kinda gal, so I wasn't really interested in Jade...but as I see more and more swatches of it, I'm feeling the need to buy it to add to my collection :)
    It helps to know that it applied really well too~

  6. Nice and exciting shades here...there is a trend for all eye catchy swatches like the dark yellow and the greens and the blues too.
