In November, Nicole by OPI launched 7 new shades of polish exclusive to CVS – A Pinker Shade of Pale, Personally Speaking…, Always a Silver Lining, Don’t Overpink It, Feeling Grapeful, Marooned in Paradise and I Sea You and Raise You. These shades will represent the “new neutrals” and will complement the hottest shades for 2013.
A Pinker Shade of Pale is a metallic pale blush of cool pink, giving it a lilac tone. It was simple to apply but will show off some brushstrokes, though not as much as I thought once it dried. The formula was thin for me, so I used three coats for the photo.
Always a Silver Lining
Always a Silver Lining is a silver metallic sprinkled with small gold glitters (you can’t see the gold glitter in my pics, but on my word it’s there!). The formula was nice to apply, but sheer. I used three coats in the photo.
Don’t Overpink It
Marooned in Paradise
Marooned in Paradise is a deep maroon with very subtle shimmer. It was a surprise, because it looked like a plain cream in the bottle, but ended up being fun on the nail! I used two thick coats for the swatch photos.
I Sea You and Raise You
While the shades themselves aren’t really anything special, all of the polishes were great to apply and nice to own if you don’t already have something similar. My top picks are Always a Silver Lining, I Sea You and Raise You and Feeling Grapeful.
