Nicole by OPI Something About Spring Collection - Pt. 2 (Glitters)

Yesterday, I showed you the first 9 polishes of this collection.  Tonight, I bring you the remaining 3 polishes in the collection, all of which are glitters.  

Brilliant Idea - golden-green mulit-sized glitter in a tonal clear base.  In the bottle, this one is definitely green. However, on the nail, it turned much more golden.  It actually reminded me of Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow once it was on the nail.  This one is jammed packed with glitter.  I was able to reach opacity in 3 coats, something I didn't think would be possible one I saw it in the bottle.  

Make a Comet-ment - holo micro-glitter in a clear base.  This one seems pretty straightforward... a holo glitter top coat.  However, it's actually pretty unique in that it there is tons of micro-glitter in the base, and after 3 coats, your nail is so covered in glitter that you could get away with wearing this alone.  You can, of course, layer this, but you don't have to, which is great.  The application on this one was fantastic.  Also, unlike the other 2 glitters in this collection, the finish on this one is very smooth without topcoat.  3 coats.

Nicole's Nickel - hematite grey, multi-sized glitter in a tonal clear base.  Remember in yesterday's post where I said that one of these glitters was amazing?  Well, this was the one I was talking about.  It's so beautiful and incredibly unique.  It almost looks like you have marcasite on your nails.  This one, like Brilliant Idea is packed with glitter.  It was almost opaque in 2 coats, but completely so in 3.  This is one of my favorites of the collection.  Gorgeous!

Honestly, I wanted to mentioned that I did these separately because they are glitters and glitters in general are a PITA to swatch, but these were remarkably stress free.  They removed extremely well.


I love these.  Love.  Nicole's Nickel is FANTASTIC.  Seriously.  If you get two from this collection, get I'm a Pool for Your Love and Nicole's Nickel.  Hands down.  Again, these are available at Target and

These were sent to me for review
