OPI “All Your Dreams in Vending Machines”

Today I have one of OPI's latest bright pinks to share: "All Your Dreams in Vending Machines" from the Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection. I found this beauty at TJ Maxx for $3.99.

These two shades from OPI's Hello Kitty collection of 2016 make a pretty pink combo! "Super Cute in Pink" is a medium pink crelly with a fantastic, smooth formula.
