Kardashian Kolors for Spring 2012 are exclusive to CVS stores. The collection consists of 4 cremes and 3 shimmers in a broad range of colors from neutrals to brights.
“Nicole by OPI is very excited to bring new Kardashian Kolor lacquers exclusively to CVS for 2012. In collaborating with the Kardashian/Jenner family on the CVS exclusive shades, we came up with lacquers to represent each of their vibrant personalities and individual styles. The seven resulting colors offer the perfect accessory for spring’s bright colors, feminine frocks and reinvented neutrals.”
Paparazzi Don't Preach - super shiny ceramic doll pink. It's actually a lot darker than ceramic pink, more salmon, but the color reminds me of baby dolls. It's a very pretty neutral that you can wear anywhere. I used 3 coats to make it opaque.
Ladies In The Limelight - yellow creme with a hint of green. I saw this about a week ago in CVS and the green wasn't apparent in the bottle but it's obvious on the nail. I'm really feeling the lime here. It has a thin formula as most yellows do but it built up nicely. To my surprise I only needed 4 coats.
One Big Happy Fame-ily. Lilac base with light pink and baby blue shimmer that looks more silver on the nail. This is so pretty and great for Spring. I used 3 coats.
Back To Reality...TV. Periwinkle with pink/fuchsia shimmer. I used 3 coats here.
Strike A Pose. Dark coral that leans more red. It's a very bright creme but not neon at all. I had a difficult time capturing the true color. It looks more coral in the bottle and more red on. I used 2 coats but a third wouldn't hurt. I thought I saw streaks in person but they weren't obvious on camera.
Our Fuchsia's Lookin' Bright. Like the name says it's a bright fuschia creme. I really like the formula on this one because I only needed 1 coat. I used 2 to intensify the look. Very pretty.
Smile For The Glam-era. Dark plum with dark pink shimmer. This will probably sound strange but it's much prettier than I expected. I don't wear vamps as often but I love the look of this one. The formula was thicker than I expected so I only used 2 coats. I took several pictures to highlight the shimmer.
All of the polishes were photographed without a topcoat except Strike A Pose. Overall the formula was good and application was easy. Most of the colors needed 2-3 coats except the yellow which is pretty common. My favorites from the collection are Smile For The Glam-era, One Big Happy Fame-ily and Paparazzi Don't Preach. I also really like Ladies In The Limelight but I may have a similar color already. Overall, I believe the collection has a good variety and offers a little something for everyone.
