Manicure Mondays – Nicole by OPI & Kardashian Kolor

on April 15 | in Manicures, Seasonal Collections | by | with 4 Comments

Thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes you sent my way last week. You all put a huge smile on my face at a time I couldn’t imagine smiling. I still have my moments, but I’m feeling much better today. I’m going to try work again tomorrow and I’m hoping I can make it a full day. I practiced leaving the house for the first time yesterday and it went well {two trips to Target lol}.

I knew I liked nail polish a lot, but apparently, it’s therapeutic lol. All the painting I did was a win/win because it took my mind off things and was a big ol check off my to-do list. The collections I needed to review started piling up while I was pregnant because I was afraid to paint my nails during my first trimester. I’m pretty sure the 3 and 4-free formulas are safe {including OPI}, but after everything we went through to get pregnant, I thought I’d save it for later.

I hope you all enjoy the new spring Nicole by OPI and Nicole by OPI Kardashion Kolors as much as I enjoyed painting them on my nails. The Kardashian Kolors below are exclusive to CVS, and some of the Nicole by OPI colors are exclusive to Walmart. I listed where you could find each polish. I used two coats of each color and topped with a quick dry top coat.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Paparazzi Don't Preach Pink Peach Beige Nude Creme Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Paparazzi Don’t Preach is a pink peach nude creme nail polish and my FAVORITE of the entire spring options. This shade makes your nails look so healthy, like a fresh from the nail salon manicure {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Ladies In The Limelight Yellow Lime Creme Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Ladies In The Limelight is a super bright yellow creme nail polish with a hint of lime. I’m a huge fan of yellow polish this season {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Smile For The Glam-era Plum Purple Pink Glitter Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Smile For The Glam-era is a fun plum purple with a pink glitter shimmer. For some reason, I’m a “purple with pink shimmer” fan lately {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - One Big Happy Fame-ily Light Purple Silver Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – One Big Happy Fame-ily is a light purple nail polish with a silver shimmer. I like this color, but the finish is a little too frosty for me {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Back To Reality... TV Purple Pink Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Back To Reality… TV is another fun purple polish with pink shimmer. I think this is my favorite of the purples with pink shimmer since it’s lighter than the other shades, making it the best option for spring {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Our Fuchsia's Lookin' Bright

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Our Fuchsia’s Lookin’ Bright is a bright pink creme nail polish which is so on trend right now {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor - Strike A Pose Red Coral Creme Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor – Strike A Pose is a red coral creme polish. This color is definitely one of my favs {sold exclusively at CVS}.

Nicole by OPI - Fabulous Is My Middle Name Pink Red Purple Silver Bar Glitter Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI – Fabulous Is My Middle Name {layered over Paparazzi Don’t Preach} is a pink, red, purple and silver bar glitter with a silver shimmer. I like bar glitter, but the bars in this are so thin that it looks like confetti. It’s not my favorite polish, but I really like the application. There was a lot of glitter in each stroke {sold exclusively at Walmart}.

Nicole by OPI - Best Pink Ever Bright Pink Purple Metallic Shimmer

Nicole by OPI – Best Pink Ever is a bright pink metallic nail polish with a beautiful barely there purple shimmer {sold exclusively at Walmart}.

Nicole by OPI - Shoot for the Maroon Purple Pink Glitter Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI – Shoot for the Maroon is a beautiful plum purple and pink shimmer nail polish. I like it a lot, but I prefer the other purples with pink shimmers better, in particular Back To Reality… TV for spring {no exclusive}

Nicole by OPI - Vio-Let's Talk About Red Pink Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI – Vio-Let’s Talk About Red is a bright violet pink metallic with pink shimmer nail polish. I love the deep saturation of this color {no exclusive}.

Nicole by OPI - A Lit-Teal Bit Of Love Blue Metallic Shimmer Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI – A Lit-Teal Bit Of Love is a super bright blue metallic shimmer. This shade of blue is so fun and beautiful {no exclusive}.

Nicole by OPI - A Million Sparkles Silver Pink Blue Bar Sequin Glitter Nail Polish

Nicole by OPI – A Million Sparkles (layered over Ladies In The Limelight} is a silver, pink and blue bar glitter with small silver sequin glitter and blue shimmer nail polish. This one is just ok for me since I’m not a big fan of the small bar glitters. I did like the application. Just like Fabulous Is My Middle Name, there was a lot of glitter in each stroke {no exclusive}.

Overall, I thought there were a lot of fun colors in this spring collection. My favorites include Paparazzi Don’t Preach, Back To Reality… TV, Our Fuchsia’s Lookin’ Bright, and Strike A Pose.

The brushes in this collection were exactly like the OPI collection I reviewed last week, which I really like because they are wide and hold a lot of polish. All of these colors applied perfectly, including the darker colors. I had no streaking at all.

What are your favorite colors in the collection? See any you’d like to pick up?

    Of course, my favorites are the ones that are exclusive to CVS, since there are none near me. Luckily, they are available online. Unfortunately, placing that order keeps getting put off for other polishes… right now, Zoya is having their Earth Day promo, which I’ve been waiting and waiting for, and this year it’s only available this weekend, so that’s going to suck up all my nail polish money for awhile.

  4. [...] A Crewed Interest is a light pink peach nude creme nail polish, similar to Nicole by OPI’s Kardashian Kolor Paparazzi Don’t Preach. [...]
