Nicole by OPI: Texture Coat: Swatches and Review.

Here they are , the new Nicole by OPI Texture Coat Collection colors. All 6 :)

First up, I swatched 3 colors against white to show their color better. 

1 coat of OPI Alpine Snow and then 1 coat each of "Turquoise Texture", "Red Texture" and "Black Texture", all with one coat of Top Coat.

I don't know why the brushes are different, but here they are. The "Turquoise Shatter" came with a brush very similar to the old Sally Hansen bottles and the Rimmel bottles, which I'm not a fan of... Hhmmmm ...moving on :\

"Turquoise Texture" is very similar to "Turquoise Shatter", but "Red Texture" is more opaque in color than "Red Shatter".  If you recall "Red Shatter"  has a jelly like consistency and shine, it's very nice, but very different than "Red Texture".... Yep, It's a definite keeper :)

"Black texture" is similar to "Black Shatter", so if you didn't grab Shatter, grab the Texture :)

Now, here are my favorites!!!!

Gaaahhhhhh, look at that sparkle..I love them!

1 coat of ChG "Liquid Vinyl" and then 1 coat each of "Silver Texture", "Gold Texture", and "White Texture", all with 1 coat of Top Coat.

Yep, the brushes did it to me again...LOL, "Silver" and "White" had the fat brush and "Gold" had the skinny one, has anyone  else experienced this with their bottles? or any Nicole by OPI bottles? This is a  first for me :)

Look at that glitters and shine...woo hoo!!! "Silver Texture" is similar to "Silver Shatter".  I'll have to do a comparison of these 2 soon. "Gold Texture" is gorgeous, I'm not a fan of the color gold, but this one is a definite must have for me....I love it against black and dark colors....gorgeous!

I love "White Texture", it applies so much better than my bottle of "White Shatter"...This make s me very happy!

Overall I really like this collection and specifically, I love  "Red Texture", "Silver Texture" "Gold Texture" and "White Texture", theses 4 are must haves in my book :)

I'm digging the silver and gold, much more sparkly than others I've seen.

Other bloggers seem to have the same brush issues - it seems some were made with the old brush, and some with the new which is very similar to OPI's ProWide. Weird, eh?

I agree! :)

@Bowleena- Thanks for the info., it's weird that the same collection has 2 brushes, but this isn't the first time we've seen a "mix" like this one..LOL!
