Nicole by O.P.I Too Rich for You + Nicole...Spotted

Hello lovelies,

  Today I have two Nicole by O.P.I colors by mama in law got for me. She is soo funny about getting me polishes because she is more discriminating about it than I am lol. See, she also sells Avon and I remember her telling me one day "I was going to get you some Avon polishes, but I figured you wouldn't want to try those" WRONG! lol I'll try any polish! I love polish. I love trying new polish. Cheap, expensive, ugly, pretty, I'll try anything anyone sends me or gets me. It's fun for me to try colors or brands that I would not normally buy myself because you never know what hidden gems you might find that way. So, anywho she got for me these two beauties from the Gossip Girl Collection and now I'm gonna show you them :) Ready?   Ok...

I'll get started with Too Rich for You. This is a stunning Blackened Navy Blue shimmer that is absolutely stunning! I love these types of Blackened shades a lot because they are always so mysterious and sexy without being typical, like say a Vampy Wine shade. The formula for this was ok. Just ok. It has good pigmentation and is opaque in Three coats but it can drag a little so keep your hand light and steady with this one. As you can see it kinda levels it self out nicely and after that Third coat it was absolute perfection. I gasped a little when I saw this in the Sun. No joke.

 And here is Nicole... Spotted. This one is a beautiful Aqua jelly base packed full of micro and round glitter in holo and like a coppery holo. You may be thinking this looks like CG Atlantis but this actually reminds me more of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie. However with this one the base is slightly more opaque. This you see here is Three coats of Nicole... Spotted. I know it would probably pop more if it was layered over something but I'm really digging this naked mermaid thing my nails have going on. In shade  or inside lights there was actually no VNL. Just a sheer wash of Aqua Sparkle over my nails that is totally squishy and gorgeous.

And there you have it. My mom in law needs to give herself more credit! Aren't these beautiful? Now here is my only issue with Nicole by O.P.I... I FREAKING HATE THE SHAPE OF THE BOTTLES!!! Like with the passion. They wont sit right in my racks... So freaking annoying. But so be it, I'm willing to deal with it if it means beautiful polishes like these.

Any Nicole's you guys recommend as must haves?

  2. Oohhh I love the first one, Too Rich for You! I have only one Nicole by OPI because I can't buy this brand where I live. I hate the shape of the bottle too!

  3. These are really great shades! I own only 1 bottle of Nicole by OPI for the very same reason...I can't stand the bottle shape lol.

  4. I also have these two polishes and I love them. Nicole...Spotted is just gorgeous. If you're looking for more N by OPIs, try Virtuous Violet. It's like a purple packed with blue shimmer. It's so pretty!

  5. LOL That is my issue. I HATEEE the bottles. Why couldn't OPI make them more like the sephora, or square?! I hate the shape. BUT I am loving everything NOPI right now, and I definitely want Too Rich for You know!

  7. I have a couple things I'd like to comment on. First, I sell Avon and I love their polish! It doesn't wear as long as some but it lasts about 3 days or so. Also, I purchased both of these Nicole shades in the Fall when they came out, I just HAD to have them!! I love the colors but I had a problem with Spotted. Almost instantly after drying it started peeling. It was like a little girl's polish that you want to peel. Soooo disappointing! It might be better layered over another color but, like you, I really liked the look by itself. Within a few hours it had almost all peeled off. :(

  9. Gorgeous colors. I absolutely hate the NOPI bottles! It doesn't fit anywhere and takes up way too much space. I've been considering transferring the polish to new bottles, but I don't want to lose the brush. Hmm, I wonder if the cap and brush would fit into other bottles?

  10. I hate the bottles too, so I do everything I can to avoid buying them... but there are some really unique colors, so I do own a few! Spotted looks super interesting to me!
