Nicole by OPI recently handed out some CVS Exclusives, so why not some for Walmart? Today there are three polishes, that you'll only see at Wally World - The Gold Shoulder, Best Pink Ever, and Fabulous is My Middle Name.

The Gold Shoulder

The Gold Shoulder is actually more of a silver foil metallic with some gold flecks blended throughout, and you can't really see the gold too much. It shows up better in the second picture if you know to look for it. I used 3 coats for the photo.

When I first saw The Gold Shoulder in the bottle I thought it could be a dupe for Dior Timeless Gold, but in the end Timeless Gold is much more gold and The Gold Shoulder has too much silver.

Best Pink Ever

Best Pink Ever has a magenta base with magenta and purple shimmers. I thought based off of the bottle this was going to be a magenta/orange duochrome (you can kind of tell from the bottom of the bottle), but no orange translates on the nail at all. The base was pretty sheer for this... and for the swatch photo I used three coats of polish, the third of which was pretty thick.


Fabulous is My Middle Name

(pinkie finger - one coat, ring finger - two coats, middle finger - three coats, pointer finger - four coats)


Fabulous is My Middle Name is a mix of fine glitters, from small gold ones to silver, blue, gold, red, and pink bar glitters. This party-on-your-nails actually goes opaque in three coats!

My only must have of the three is Fabulous is My Middle Name. I love the fine but generous amount of glitters. It's so pretty I want to put a coat on top of every polish!
