Nicole by OPI has added 15 brand new nail polish shades to their core line for 2014. Check out the swatches and let me know what your faves are in the comments!
Yoga-Then-Yogurt is a bright white cream. The formula was pretty streaky and uneven. I wasn’t too pleased with this shade. I had to use three coats to get it even, but it does remind me of yogurt covered raisins.
Be Awesome has a clear base with rainbow diamond shaped glitter. Love the glitter shades and shape, so beautiful. That’s about it.. this polish is a big PITA and I’m so sad about that. The base is thick/heavy making it hard to pick up and place glitter. Below is “one coat” over Teal Me Something New… and I use the phrase one coat lightly… as it was more just me dabbing, swearing and maneuvering.
Fabulous is My Middle Name has a clear base with small silver glitter and a lot of pink, red and silver bar glitter. The bar glitter seems like it collects where you first swipe the polish on the nail, so it helps to spread it out quickly as soon as you apply. I may be alone, but I’m still loving bar glitter! One coat shown over Something About Spring.
Emerald Empowered is a teal duochrome. The duochrome is very slight and you can see it better in the pic with the shade. The pic at the top with the flash just makes it look like a metallic teal. Two coats.
While most of these shades were pretty dupeable you might still be able to find a few that’ll suit your fancy and find a home in your collection! My faves are Sweet Surrender, At Least I Pink So, I Shop Mintage, Teal Me Something New, Taupe of My Class, Always a Flirt and Oh That’s Just Grape.
