Nicole by OPI and Modern Family Team UP!

I love the show Modern Family. I didn't start watching it till after the 1st season, but once I saw an episode, I was hooked!

I loved this collection for their names as well as some of their colors  It took a while to swatch these but here they are!

"Am I Making Myself Claire?"
 2 coats, no top coat

Nothing amazing, but this is a pretty pink toned nude.

"I Do De-Claire!"
2 coats, no top coat

Pretty pink color, but the frost is turning me off.  Applied very well for a frosted shade.

"A Like-Haley Story..."
3 coats, no top coat

Nice hot pink creme with a slight shimmer. Not unique but a keeper!

"She's Lily Something"
2 coats over "A Like-Haley Story", no top coat

The accent nail, is 2 coats on it's own.  Don't get too excited, The few stars you see on the nail, I had to fish out of the bottle.

Bottle Shot

In indirect light...

These star are pretty in the bottle, but not easy to apply.

"My Jay or The Highway"
2 coats, no top coat

Good color, great application :) It reminds me of coffee with cream, and since I do not like coffee, but love the scent and color, this cures my coffee craving, LOL! :)

"Stand By Your Manny"
3 coats, no top coat

I was so ready to love this but after 3 coats, I hated it. The perfect blue periwinkle shade promises so much in the bottle, but does not deliver on the nail. 3 coats and no opacity...sad panda! :(

This shimmer and formula are NO BUENO.

"Alex By The Books"
2 coats, no top coat

I love this color! This is my new favorite color for Spring! In love!!!

"Haley Good Lookin..."
3 coats, no top coat

Light pink glitter in a clear base with larger hot pink pieces of glitter.  I would have liked this more if it was perfectly opaque in 3 coats, but it would be nice over another color as a base.

"Basking In Gloria"
2 coats, no top coat

Hot pink-fuchsia creme with pink flakes and shimmer. This reminds me of OPI "Meep-Meep-Meep", but with less flake shimmer.

"Luke Of The Draw"
2 coats, no top coat

Grey jelly base with silver multi-sized glitter. This could have used 3 coats to be perfectly opaque. I feel like this is a water-down version of OPI "Metallic 4 Life".

"A Phil's Paradise"
2 coats, no top coat

Gorgeous color, great pewter shimmer. This color is a staple, and should be in every gals polish collection. Perfect color for night out. It goes with everything!

"Candid Cameron"
2 coats, no top coat

In indirect light...

HHhmmm  it's beautiful, but it reminds me of two other shades. China Glaze "Deviantly Daring", and Gosh "Ocean". I have both, so I don''t need this one. But if you don't have either, grab this, you won't be disappointed :)

"Back In My Gloria Days..."
2 coats, no top coat

In indirect light...

Pretty, pretty purple shimmer. This glass fleck beauty is gorgeous and it' the perfect shade of grape jelly. :)

"What's The Mitch-uation"
2 coats no top coat

Great color! I put this on my toes immediately, but it still reminds me of OPI "Into The Night" and China Glaze "Want My Bawdy", which I already own.

The formula was great on all of the colors except  for "Stand By Your Manny". Dry time was the usual time. My favorites are "Alex By The Books" and "My Jay Or The Highway!". The others are very pretty and great for liven up our tips and toes for Spring, but they seem like repeats of former OPI colors.

About The Lacquered Lady said...

Nice swatches! I think it is interesting that a good deal of companies are producing a frost finish or two in their recent collections. Maybe it is the whole 80s revival thing going on.

Gorgeous swatches! This is a really nice collection.
