Nicole by O.P.I CVS Exclusives- Holiday 2012

Good Morning loves!!! 

  Today I have swatches of Nicole by O.P.I latest CVS Exclusives release. This group is made up of Seven shades. There are Three cremes, a shimmer and Three frosts. These were released during winter, but the colors feel very Spring-y to me. The cremes are amazing!
To see close up swatches and reviews just continue reading ♥.
Nicole by O.P.I I Sea You and Raise You
  I Sea You and Raise You is a beautiful Periwinkle Blue creme. It is vivid, but not this vivid... *le sigh*. This is a great shade of Blue and it has an amazing, buttery smooth formula. I used Three thin, easy coats for full coverage. I think this would be my fave from this collection if I had to pick.

Nicole by O.P.I Don't Over Pink It
 Don't Over Pink It is a really pretty, light Bubblegum Pink with a squishy formula. It is not extremely unique but I do like that it is not a full on creme, and that squishy look. The formula on this shade is great, very smooth and even. I used Three thin coats.

Nicol by O.P.I Feeling Grapeful
 Feeling Grapeful is a light Red toned Purple with the same squishy texture as Don't Over Pink It. This is a great classic shade of Purple, very flattering and wearable. The formula is really good and does great in Three thin coats.

Nicole by O.P.I Marooned in Paradise
 This is a great shade if you are into the Oxblood trend. Marooned in Paradise is an awesome shade of lightly shimmery Oxblood. The shimmer leans to Pink to it gives the Maroon base some pretty flashes of light color and it does not pull so Brown. This shade has a great Three coat formula.

Nicole by O.P.I Always a Silver Lining 
 Always a Silver Lining is a really flashy Silver Shimmer with slight hints of Blue. This shade has a very dense formula and it is practically foil like in finish. I only needed Two coats for full opacity.

Nicole by O.P.I Personally Speaking 
 Personally Speaking... is a Rose-Gold metallic- frost. This is an odd shade and I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. I'm sure this will stamp really well! The formula is a little streaky, but at least it is not patchy. I did Three coats for my swatch.

Nicole by O.P.I A Pinker Shade of Pale 
 Another shade I'm not sure about... A Pinker Shade of Pale is a very, very pale of frosty Lavender-Pink. The formula is not patchy but it shows brushstrokes. For my swatch I used Three thin, patient coats. It is also best to wait between coats.

  So, I was with them up until Always a Silver Lining. They kinda lost me with the frosty shades, but they do have to make polish for everyone, and somewhere out there is a gal who likes frost shades. Try as I might, I will never get into the frost finish. My absolute fave is I Sea you and Raise You, I also really like Marooned in Paradise. These are available now at CVS stores.

Do you have any picks from this group?

  1. Great swatches! I love the blue, pink, and purple ones!

  2. This is a pretty collection, although it definitely does seem "springy"! I really love I Sea You and Raise You and Always a Silver Lining!
