As with the OPI Muppets Collection, I am late with the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor Collection (Kollection?). I received these a bit later, but here they are, and I hope if you're still deciding on shades you'd like to try, that this will help you out a bit!
This is a rather large collection of 14 nail polishes, all based off of the female Kardashians. I was sad because I believe Bruce and Rob deserved at least ONE named after them... and even Scott... he's done his time, give the guy a nail polish! At least Lamar got a bit of a shout out on a Khloe polish...
Even though the boys got snubbed, I thought the polishes were aptly named, and I could see each one being worn by it's namesake.
Since this collection is so large, I'll be posting them in alphabetical order... hopefully you'll want to see them ALL while you're here ;) but if not, just scroll through!
Top Row, L-R: All Kendall-ed Up, Disco Dolls, Follow Me On Glitter, Hard-Kourt Fashionista, It's All About the Glam, Kendall on the Katwalk, Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam
Bottom Row, L-R: Kim-pletely In Love, Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi, Listen to Your Momager!, My Empire.... My Rules, Rainbow in the S-Kylie, Sealed With A Kris, Wear Something Spar-Kylie
All Kendall-ed Up
All Kendall-ed Up is a beautiful hot pink creme. This is one of my favorite shades for a summer pedi. The above swatch was 3 coats, but you could get away with 2 thicker ones.
Disco Dolls is loaded with tiny golden glitters and small rainbow colored hex glitter. The top 2 pics were indoors with flash, the bottom 2 were outdoors without a flash. I used three coats for the swatch photos, but be aware this one was a bit runny.
Follow Me On Glitter
Follow Me On Glitter has a charcoal base loaded with tiny silver glitters and small rainbow colored hex glitter. It's like Disco Dolls, just with a different base. The top 2 pics were indoors with flash, the bottom 2 were outdoors without a flash. I used three coats for the swatch photos, however this wasn't as runny as Disco Dolls.
Hard-Kourt Fashionista is a lovely deep raisin creme. I used 2 coats for the swatch photo.
It's All About The Glam
It's All About The Glam is a shimmery white. Based off of how it looked in the bottle I expected more from this polish, but its just your run of the mill white shimmer. Even with the three coats used above it still appears sheer and I didn't think it applied well. This was my least favorite from the collection, but it may look nice over a white base.
Kendall On The Katwalk
Kendall On The Katwalk is a really pretty blue jelly with blue, purple and green glitters. I had to use three coats to get it to look fabulous, but it was totally worth the time ;)
Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam
Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam is a deep and saturated teal creme. It was opaque in two coats, but was rather runny and hard to control. It was still my second favorite cream of the collection, however, because I just love this color!
Kim-pletely In Love
Kim-pletely In Love is a girlie pink packed with green and blue micro-shimmers. Get ready to fall over, it's my FAVORITE from the collection. I have never seen anything like it. I had to use three coats for the swatch above and you can still see some visible nail line, but if that bothers you then you can always layer it over a white or baby pink creme.
Kourt Is Red-Y For A Pedi
Kourt Is Red-Y For A Pedi is a phenomenal orange-red jelly. I used two coats for the above swatch but it would have been opaque in one.
Listen To Your Momager!
Listen to Your Momager! is a bold, sparkly royal blue. I used two coats for the swatch photo.
My Empire.... My Rules
My Empire... My Rules is a grey (almost with a hit of khaki) creme. I have never had a grey creme polish apply so wonderfully. I used two coats for the swatch photo and this was my favorite creme from the collection!
Rainbow In The S-Kylie
Rainbow In The S-Kylie is a myriad of small, medium, and large rainbow hex glitters. This is the said dupe of OPI Rainbow Connection, though I found that the OPI one was easier to apply and coated better. I don't recommend more than 2 coats with this (the above swatch is three) because it will take the better part of your day for it to dry. The best thing to do with this one is to apply over your favorite polish shade. The larger glitters will take some manipulating.
Sealed With A Kris
Sealed With A Kris is a lovely red cream. On the first coat I actually thought that this would show up as more of a pinked red, but it deepened as I used more coats. The above photo is three coats, but I definitely could have only used two.
Wear Something Spar-Kylie
Wear Something Spar-Kylie is a well pigmented pink base with a ton of silver and pink glitters. The first two photos are indoors with flash, the last two photos are outdoors with no flash. I used three coats of polish in the photo.
My must haves from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor Collection - Kim-pletely In Love, My Empire... My Rules, Follow Me On Glitter, and Disco Dolls. I read on the Nicole by OPI page that this collection is exclusive to Wal-Mart.
Have you purchased any NOPI Kardashians yet? Which ones? How are you liking them? There is a lot of controversy right now with Kim's super quick marriage to Kris Humphries, so what do you think of that? I do watch all of the Kardashian shows (what can I say, I'm a reality TV junkie!) and I think they're both to blame. Each of them needs someone who is not famous and can be completely devoted to them and their respective careers. Anyone else, just obviously won't work out. And that's my advice for the day.
