This Spring, Nicole by OPI is launching three new polishes that are exclusive to Wal*Mart. Let’s have a look.
Fabulous Is My Middle Name. A clear base loaded with small silver square glitter and large fuchsia, red, navy blue, and light gold bar glitter. People either love or hate bar glitter. Lucky for me, I love it so this polish is an absolute winner. I love all the colors in this polish and that it’s so fun and loaded with tons and tons of bar glitter. And the best part? This is two coats. Two freakin coats! You don’t even need to layer it over anything which is really rare for these types of glitters. It’s got awesome coverage, perfect formula, it’s super colorful, pretty and unique. If yo like glitter, or bar glitter specifically, you need this polish.
The Gold Shoulder. First things first. This polish is clearly not gold. It’s silver. But want to see something weird?
This is how the polish looked when I first got it. It was completely separated and I had to give it a good shake to get all the particles mixed up. There’s gold in the polish, obviously since you can see all the gold particles that have sunk, but the overall look of the polish is a light silver foil. If you click to enlarge the pictures you can see that there’s antique gold foil glitter particles dispersed through the silver but otherwise, the gold really isn’t so obvious and it looks like a plain ol’ light silver foil polish. It’s pretty… it’s just not all that unique. This was two coats.
Best Pink Ever. Well, I don’t know if I’d agree with that. It is a really pretty pink, but the best ever? I don’t think so. It was pretty sheer to start out but with three coats I got almost full opaqueness. How the polish looks on my pinkie finger in the first picture is the most color and finish accurate. It’s a sheer fuchsia pink loaded with iridescent pink, purple, and blue fleck shimmer. At the bottom of the bottle you can see some antique orange-gold shimmer. I’m not sure if the fleck shimmer that appears on the nail is really duochrome (and shifts to this gold color) shimmer that just doesn’t show up on the nail or if there really is just orange-gold shimmer that’s not duochome at all and it’s just heavy and has sunk and/or is stuck to the bottom of the bottle. It’s a bit boggling. Either way, this polish is pretty nice despite the watery formula.
All three polishes are available starting this month at Wal*Mart.
