Nicole by OPI: New Walmart Exclusives: Swatches and Review.

Yep, Nicole by OPI has been busy this spring.  Today I have 3 new colors that are new to their line up, and will be exclusively at Walmart.  I know, I know, some of you think Walmart is EVIL, but it may be worth your trouble to drop by and pick up a couple of these beauties..trust me!

First Up...

"The Gold Shoulder"
2 coats, no top coat








































Pretty isn't it? Yeah I really like this one.  Although I am a big fan of silver polish, I love golds that are more "antiquey" and "old world".  Here are some pics in the shade, so you can see the detail.








































This light gold foil has tiny specks of a darker gold/bronze that give it more depth than your average foil.  This was easy to apply and dried super fast.

I couldn't help but think how this reminded me of the gold foil from the Muppets collection "Designer Da Better"  so i compared the bottles.



























They are close, but the OPI leans more peach and pink than the NOPI, and the NOPI is far more blingier :)
One thing is for sure, if you like the OPI, you'll love the NOPI :)

"Best Pink Ever"
3 coats, no top coat





























Yep, it's pink, its a shimmer sand I love it but I do have one issue. In the bottle it looks like a great deep pink with fabulous duochrome flashes of gold and orange, but on the hands, the flashes disappear :(














Can you see it?














In fact when I saw the flashes I immediately thought of MAC "Bad Fairy" and OPI "The Show Must Go On".



























But alas, no flashes here, just lovely pink shimmer perfection! :)














This was perfectly opaque in 2 coats, but I was hoping a 3rd coat would deliver the duo-chrome flashes and well...it didn't work..LOL! No matter this is a great pink shimmer, and I may have to rock this on V-Day! :)

"'Fabulous' Is My Middle Name"
 3 coats, no top coat








































This polish is a bottle of FUN!!!! Seriously the glitter in here is so diverse and interesting, that at first I thought nothing of it, but once I got close...WOW!














See what I mean!














I love the mix of gold and silver micro-glitter with red, pink and blue bar glitter. Very different! I think this would be great layered over the other 2 colors. Why do I always think of these great layering ideas, AFTER I've already taken the polish off...LOL, Oh Well!!!
