This fall Nicole by OPI is releasing a collection of five brand new polishes, sold exclusively at Target. Let’s have a lookie loo shall we?
Mer-made For Each Other. A sparkly green-gold-turquoise-blue duochrome foil-y metallic. Originally, from the looks of the bottle, I thought this would be another Peridot dupe but it’s not. It’s the same idea and close in color, but not a dupe. This is probably my favorite of the collection despite the fact that we’ve seen a lot of these types of polishes lately and it’s not really so original anymore. This was three coats.
Just Busta Mauve. This color is interesting to say the least. I want to say that I like how it looks on me but I’m not really so sure that I think I can pull it off. Maybe it clashes with my skin tone too much? Meh. Anyways, It’s a red-brown tinted clear base filled with bronze, rose gold, copper, blue and purple fleck glitter. It’s a bit on the sheer side. As you can see, there’s VNL even after three coats. Despite that, this is a really pretty polish and it’s totally unique… I can’t think of any other polish that looks even remotely similar to this.
For The Gold Times Sake. A green tinged silver-gunmetal grey version of Just Busta Mauve. It’s filled with dark silver, olive, rose gold, gold and blue fleck glitter. Like Busta Move, this is also still somewhat sheer and shows VNL at three coats. I’m a huge fan of dark silver/gunmetal polishes and this one if pretty unique from the rest of my collection.
Iris My Case. A purple-brown base filled with lavender shimmer. I feel like we’ve seen this polish before, though off the top of my head I can’t figure out for the life of me which polish the reminds me of. I wanna say it’s an old school China glaze though. One that I don’t own so I guess it really doesn’t matter if it has a dupe of not. This was three coats.
If The Blue Fits…. A dark navy blue base filled with duochrome fleck glitter that shifts from bright blue to purple to green. In the bottle you can see that there’s even a bit of yellow and red duochrome that show up but it’s not at all visible on the nail. I really like this one a lot. This is three coats.
These polishes are now available at exclusively at Target.
(These products were sent to me for review.)
This summer OPI is releasing a Spider-Man themed collection to coincide with the release of a brand new Spider-Man movie. I’m not a huge Spider-Man fan but the nail polish-comic connection kind of thrills me so I was really looking forward to this collection. Let’s have a looksy, shall we?
Your Web Or Mine?. A frosty-ish mauve medium pink. It’s not so frosty that it’s an ugly frost polish… but it’s still clearly frosty. It’s subtle enough though that I still like it because of the color. This is two coats.
Into The Night. A deep metallic blue that is super shimmery and foil like in the sunlight. It lights up with dark midnight blue and silver sparkles with the sun hits it. It really is much prettier than I expected it to be. It is pretty sheer though for such a dark polish. This is three coats.
Number One Nemesis. A dark gunmetal grey polish that is slightly green tinted and filled with tons and tons of glass fleck like shimmer in gold, green and silver that sparkles rainbow colors in the sunlight. This is a very close runner up for being my favorite of the collection. I really, really love this polish. Like a lot, a lot. I had no idea I would love it so much. It may have even taken the top spot from OPI Brand New Skates as my all time favorite gunmetal silver polish. This is three coats but I probably could have gotten away just fine with two.
Just Spotted The Lizard. OMFG. OMFG. ARE YOU SEEING THIS!!!? Holy juhybdendfjkhbnef!!! Um… yeah. I’m freaking out. Like, seriously I’m having extreme issues right now. I can’t even function. This polish is so amazing. Like, I can’t even. omg. Anyways. I Just Spotted The Lizard is an antique gold-green-blue-teal metallic duochrome polish. Apparently it’s a dupe for Chanel Peridot which I almost spent $30 on when it came out but now I’m thankful that I didn’t. This is officially my new favorite gold polish and is definitely in my top five favorite polish of all time. Seriously, run, don’t walk to your nearest nail supply store to get this. You need like, seven bottles of it okay. No joke. Alright, I’m being such a spaz…I just can’t control my feelings right now. This is three coats.
This polish comes out in May and retails for $8.50 a bottle.

Good morning everyone!! It may be summer but I was in the mood for a navy blue and this is one of my faves! Wet N Wild Blue Moon is a dark navy blue that actually looks navy blue, not black! It’s also got a bright royal blue shimmer in it that makes it look lit from within *cue the ooh’s and aah’s*. Very pretty and for only 99 cents at your drug store, it’s a steal!
Zoya Indigo. Gorgeous in the bottle. Not so much on the nail. In the bottle Indigo is a navy-blue-verging-on-black with royal blue shimmer and specks of holo glitter. On the nail, the polish looks so dark blue that it almost appears black and the shimmer and holo glitter are barely visible. Possibly it looks like a dud because I wore this on a cloudy day… maybe it’s prettier in sunlight?
OoOo0ooOo0… Sparkly!! Today I’m sharing with you Sephora By OPI Celibacy Club from the Spring 2011 Glee collection. This is another mini set exclusive. Celibacy Club is a clear base with medium, somewhat chunky holo glitter. I know, there’s so many holo glitter top coats out there and this is just another one.. but this one is different!! Unlike China Glaze Fairy Dust which has tiny round holo glitter, Celibacy Club’s holo glitter is much bigger, much chunkier, and although it’s hard to tell I think it’s square as well. Celibacy Club’s glitter is pretty opaque too, shown here with just one coat. I really like Celibacy Club.. it’s the holo top coat that i love but.. different. And look how much it sparkles!!!!
Happy hump day! Some sad news to report today.. my digital camera has officially died. It started giving me problems a few months back and this morning it kept turning off a couple of seconds after I would turn it on, until it just wouldn’t turn on anymore at all. I guess it was to be expected considering I bought the camera circa 2004 at the beginning of my junior year of high school and now I’m about to graduate after my fifth year of college. I loved that old Canon Powershot… it treated me well through the droppings, the beach trips in which sand got stuck in the lens, the one fall in the deep puddle accident… I guess it’s time to lay the old digi cam to rest. Good thing for me I just got a new phone cause this morning I about freaked out when I couldn’t take mani pictures but my new cell phone with an 8 megapixel camera came to the rescue me! rest assured I won’t be permanently using my camera phone to take pics but it sure did come in handy in a pinch. Anyways.. moving on to the polish….
This Sephora by OPI Sue vs. Shue from the Spring 2011 glee collection. This one is a mini exclusive. Sue vs. Shu is a dark navy blue with gorgeous blue shimmer in it. When the sun hits the nail, the polish almost looks lit from within, being bright and shimmery in the center and dark on the outer edges of the nails. I really like this polish a lot because it’s the first navy blue polish I own that actually looks navy blue on the nail rather than black. So many navy blue polishes look navy in the bottle and appear black on the nail unless you’re really looking at it up close. Not so with this polish!!! Sue vs. Shue is a real winner!! See all that gorgeous blue shimmer!!? So pretty! I’m really loving this Glee collection and honestly, I totally had a blast painting my nails with Glee polish while watching the show on TV last night. I’m a nerd.. what can I say? :0)
