New Nicole by OPI Lacquers- Purple and Glitters

 *Sent for review*

For your viewing enjoyment today, I have the last three polishes from 15 new colors Nicole by OPI is adding to their regular collection. There are two glitters and a lovely purple creme. Let's start with Nicole by OPI Fabulous Is My Middle Name, a mixture of fine silver glitter and tiny red and purple bar glitter in a clear base. From looking at the bottle, I thought this was full-coverage, so I swatched it without a base. If you have short nails like I do currently, you can wear this alone. If you have longer nails, you may want to use a base color underneath. These bar glitters are teeny, not the ones that look hairy and stick up everywhere. These are nice bar glitters!

This is three coats of Fabulous Is My Middle Name. The formula was good, I had no application troubles. All the bar glitter was very well behaved.

Nicole by OPI Oh That's Just Grape! is one of those medium purple cremes that I probably have 90 of, but I keep collecting them anyway! This is just the perfect medium purple with a hint of blue. 

This is three thin coats of Oh That's Just Grape! and I was wishing for a bit more pigmentation. There isn't really a reason why this color shouldn't be a two coater. The formula was a little thin, otherwise fine.

This one is just so fun!! Nicole by OPI Be Awesome is a mix of pink, blue, purple, and holo silver diamond glitter in a clear base. I love that it's all diamond-shaped glitter and absolutely nothing else. It makes for a very stunning topper. The silver holo diamonds throw some rainbows in there too and I'm always up for rainbows.

This is two dabbed coats of Be Awesome. The clear base itself is a little thick, so you have to balance how much glitter you get on the brush with how much base. It wasn't really difficult to apply, but it did take a little babying. I'm totally willing to put the effort in though because this is such a cute look.

If you missed my previous posts, I divided the 15 new Nicole by OPI polishes into color groups. You can see the blues and greens here, the pinks here, and the neutrals here. There are some definite winners here! Luckily, these are going to be around for awhile, they aren't limited edition.

The 15 new Nicole by OPI nail lacquers are available now for $7.99 each at retailers including select Walmart, Target, CVS, Kmart, Kroger, ULTA, H-E-B, Meijer and Duane Reade locations. In Canada, these shades will be available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug.
