Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors Holiday Collection Swatches, Fall 2011

Hello everyone! Tonight I have the Kardashian Kolors to share with you. There are 14 polishes to choose from and the collection features a combination of glitters, shimmers and cremes. I was really excited to try these out. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Hard-Kourt Fashionista - Dark brown chocolate 2 coater.
Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam - Deep green with hints of blue. Much prettier than the grassier greens in my current collection. Luscious 1 coater.

All Kendall-ed Up - Bright fuchsia pink almost neon, 2 coats.

Sealed With A Kris - Crimson creme, shiny 3 coater.

It's All About the Glam - Milky white cream with white shimmer. Pretty 3 coater that goes on slightly thicker than Kim-pletely in Love.
Kim-pletely In Love - Pink base with tiny holographic shimmer. Surprisingly sheer but built up nicely. Four thin coats to become opaque.
My Empire...My Rules - Grey taupe opaque in 3 coats. Thinner than I expected but the formula allowed good application control.
Indirect light.

Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi - Perfect bright cherry red 2 coater.
Listen To Your Momager! - Royal blue with light blue shimmer. Two coats to good management!
Kendall on The Katwalk - Blue and purple glitter in a blue base. There's actually more purple in the polish than what becomes apparent on the nail. The next photo is more color accurate.

Follow Me On Glitter - Charcoal base with predominantly tiny silver glitter and sparse pink and green medium sized glitter. I like the unexpected burst of color. I used 3 coats but probably could have gotten away with 2.
Wear Something Spar-Kylie - Medium pink base with tiny pink glitter. Required 3 coats to become opaque.

Disco Dolls - bronzed golden glitter in a clear base with flecks of green and red medium sized glitter. Three coats to become opaque. Another favorite.
Rainbow in the S-Kylie. Dense multi-glitter packed with every color in the Holiday rainbow. Tiny pink, silver, green, gold and red glitter. Medium pink and silver glitter. Large green, red, yellow and silver glitter. This list is not all-inclusive, lol. One layer over Disco Dolls for something Spark-Kylie.

There are definitely some gems in this collection! I wonder if the Kardashian's assisted in designing the polishes because there is a good variety and a little something for everyone. My favorites are Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam, Disco Dolls, Kendall On The Katwalk, My Empire Rules and Follow Me on Glitter.

  1. I'm so glad that I saw these on you! I ruled out a few that I shouldn't have because I assumed it would look not all that flattering on our skin. I'm glad I saw these before buying them!

  2. I was kinda meh about this collection before, but your swatches convinced me. I now think I have like 3/4 of this collection on my wish list now :)

    Quick question: is Kim-pletely in Love really that sheer? I'm always ambivalent to get something that requires more than one coat for opacity. Thanks!

  3. Thanks so much ladies :)

    @Amanda. Yes it's pretty sheer. The first day I wore 1 coat alone and it reminds me of a base for a french manicure (sheer with a slight shimmer to add some interest), but it did build up quite nicely.

  4. I am so torn on these--there are some great colors but I so dislike the idea of supporting that family in any way.

  5. I hear you Karen. I don't follow the family closely but I've heard about some of the issues through the media.

  6. These are all so pretty, and look great on you!
    I love your nail shape, BTW!!
