My Birthday Nicole by OPI Polishes!

I mentioned a few weeks ago that DH got me some Nicole by OPI polishes for my birthday.  I wanted to swatch them for you all.  When I asked him why he got that particular brand (I love Nicole, but he wouldn't know that) he said they were the most expensive ones at Target...LOL

Mis-Magenta Me?

Mis-Magenta Me? is a bright pink foil.  It really blew me away.  This is 2 coats, and quite honestly I could have gotten away with one.  It was so well-pigmented and smooth.  I loved the application AND the color!

Fell From the Tree

Fell From the Tree is a nice, true green with shimmer  It was a bit thinner and less pigmented than Mis-Magenta Me? as I needed more coats for full coverage.  It's not a terribly unique color, but it's still a nice green.

Such a Go-Glitter


3 coats

2 coats Such a Go-Glitter over 2 coats Wet n Wild black creme

Such a Go-Glitter has small blue and holo glitter suspended in a clear base.  I assume it's meant to be used as a topcoat, and now that I think about it, I should have worn it over another blue polish becuase I think it would look AMAZING.  I did like it over black as well, though, and the good thing about it is, it's a smooth glitter and you don't need a ton of topcoat to keep it from feeling gritty.

Pitch-Black Glimmer

3 coats

Pitch-Black Glimmer has black and holo glitter mixed in with silver micro-glitter in a clear base.  I absolutely love this one and ended up wearing it at my mani a couple of weeks ago.  It's a smooth glitter, like Such a Go-Glitter, so I only needed one coat of top coat.

All in all, DH done good!  He knows what I like, that's for sure!

Thanks for visiting!

Hahahahaha!! My boyfriend says similar things when he comes to Ulta with me. "The expensive ones must be better. Those are the only ones you buy." NOT TRUE, GOOD SIR!! You know how much I love the clearance bin. :)

I really love the black glitter! It's been on my Maybe Want list for a while, but this is the first time I've seen it swatched. So now it's on the Do Want list. :)

Erinsgobragh - Thanks! This isn't the first time he's gotten me nail polish and gotten a color I like...he's very well trained..lol

Erin - I agree...sometimes I get better wear out of a $1.99 Wet N Wild than an $8.50 OPI!
