Nicole by OPI: 4 New Limited Edition Texture Coats

Recently Nicole by OPI released 4 new texture top coats to their line. In know what your thinking, more crackle? But these have a nice twist to them :)

I decided to show how each of these texture top coats look over OPI "Black Onyx" and OPI "Alpine Snow".

"Opal Texture"
1 coat over both colors, no top coat

I had a hard time getting this one to crack on my nails, but the color changing effect is amazing. Opal Texture is an opalescent crackle top coat, that totally takes on a different color once it is over a darker color. Over white, it just appears as it appears in the bottle, pretty but not noticeable. Over black, well you can see for your self. Woo Hoo!!! :)

Nicole by OPI
"Amethyst Texture"
1 coat over both colors, no top coat

Pretty purple glitter crackle, but not very opaque and almost impossible to see on lighter colors. It does sparkle, but with the little amount of glitter you get on the nail, it's a bit disappointing. :(

Nicole by OPI
"Aquamarine Texture"
1 coat over both colors, no top coat

Pretty aquamarine textured crackle, but the glitter is very, very sparse and not very opaque. Hard to see over lighter colors. :(

Nicole by OPI
"Quartz Texture"
1 coat over both colors, no top coat

Nice purple taupe shimmer crackle, nice and gorgeous over darker colors. I'm not sure why, but I liek this one a lot, the color and the texture are really stunning on the nail. :)

In my opinion, the only 2 colors to get out of the 4 are "Opal Texture" and Quartz Texture", they cover the best and offer the best crackle over varying colors, especially "Opal Texture", wow is it amazing over different darker colors! :)

Great swatches! I tried Opal Texture over a light blue and it looked really cool because you could see the effect but it was subtle!

I still love crackles. They are great if you have a chip & no time to fix it. These new ones are gorgeous!
