Nicole by OPI: Target Exclusive Colors, Fall 2012

Yep, the new NOPI releases for Target, and if you check back with my blog on Monday I'll have a special surprise regarding these beauties!  *hint* it won't cost you a cent, LOL :):)

Commence with the swatches...

"Mer-Maid For Each Other"
2 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Metallic blue green duo-chrome with "lime gold" as the main color.  A definite dupe of China Glaze "Unpredictable", but better in my opinion because this was opaque in 2 coats, whereas I need 3 coats of the China Glaze to be perfectly opaque. :) I ave a comparison coming up later.

"For Gold Times Sake"
2 coats, no top coat

This glitter packed "old gold" and green combo is awesome! There are pink, blue shimmers in it as well, WOW!  This glitter is power packed with color and shine, love it!

"Iris My Case"
2 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Lilac and pink duo-chrome. Nice and pretty, but a dupe for China Glaze "No Plain Jane", but at least the NOPI was opaque in 2 coats, the China Glaze version took 3 coats for me to get it opaque. :) I have a comparison coming up later.

"Just Busta Mauve"
2 coats, no top coat

This is the best of the bunch! This brown and mauve glitter combo, is amazing. There is also blue, and pink shimmer and it is truly amazing. This would be best at 3 coats, although I used 2 for the pics.

"If The Blue Fits..."
2 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Gorgeous navy blue glitter! The base is saturated with blue color and the added blue and purple shimmer is amazing! Love this blue, LOVE!!!!

The formula on these has improved. :) All were opaque n 2 coats. I wanted to do 3 coats on the glitters, just because they did not look opaque enough to my eyes, but once photographed they were fine at 2 coats :)

My favorites are "For Gold Times Sake" and "Just Busta Mauve", they are definitely unique and different. Go to your local Target and grab them, or have someone grab them for you :)

Very pretty. It is interesting how in sync all the nail companies seem to be this year with their fall polishes.

@Carly- Thanks :)

@Kimberly- I agree!

@The Lacquered lady- I know right? They are definitely getting their pigments from the same pale, LOL! :)

I saw the logo "I swap" in the right bar and I was wondering if you want to swap with me.

I from Portugal and it would be nice to trade some national brands with you.

Check out my blog and let me know what to you think of my invitation.

Wow, these DO look great. But I agree, all the companies seem to be duping each other. I hope some truly original polishes come out by spring.
