I was excited when I saw the promo pictures for the Nicole by OPI Holiday Glitters. I figured, "Hey, they're called Holiday Glitters. That means they have glitter, so they'll probably be cool!". Well, they are more than cool, they are STUNNING!!!! I tried two of these beauties this morning and now have two new favorite polishes!
First up we have Orna-ment For Each Other, a beautiful red glitter with gold glitter pieces. These glitters in these polishes are all the same size, all small round glitter pieces. This is my favorite kind of glitter polish, small pieces packed into a clear or lightly tinted base and able to achieve full opacity. I LOVE how Nicole by OPI included the gold glitter in this red. It saves it from being just another red glitter at the holidays. Because of the gold glitter, this is different from any other red glitter in my collection. The gold pieces are REALLY shiny and eye-catching, as you can see in my macro shot.
I used three thin coats for full coverage here. You could also do two thicker coats (as I show you with the next polish). This applied nice and evenly, with no bald spots whatsoever. Surprisingly, it didn't eat top coat too badly either!
AGHBSIHREUBNKJWIIIILO!!! OMG. I put this baby on and texted EK (former co-author of this blog!) "Nicole by OPI Glitter In My Stocking. You need it." Glitter In My Stocking is gold glitter with red glitter pieces, so kind of the opposite of Orna-ment For Each Other. WOW, this looks amazing on!
The gold glitter in this is so shiny (again, like Orna-ment for Each Other)! I don't know where they found this glitter, but it's the sparkliest glitter I've ever seen! The red glitter adds a pebbled look and I really just love it! It's amazing how different a gold glitter can look when you add just a bit of red glitter.
This time I did two thicker coats for full coverage. You see it amounts to the same look, nice and opaque. Glitter In My Stocking applies nicely as well, again, no bald spots. I took an excessive amount of picture here, but I really loved how this looked!
I can't wait to try the other two polishes in this collection, I think I'll love them if they're like these two. So far, Nicole by OPI has my favorite release for this holiday season!!! I am just obsessed with these two glitters and I honestly will wear them year round. Stay tuned for Snow-man of My Dreams, a blue-multi glitter, and My Sleigh's In The Shop, a fuchsia glitter.
