Nicole by OPI New 2012 Lacquers - Swatches and Review

Today I have the New Nicole by OPI's to share with you. The set consists of two glitters and two shimmers and are available now at local stores. I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the press release but I knew I was curious about the glitter. So here they are.

Shoot For The Maroon
. Dark burgundy base with dark pink shimmer. I thought this was very gorgeous on. A great Vamp, especially for the current Season. I used 2 coats.

Vio-let's Talk About Red. Dark berry magenta base with matching shimmer. I may have a similar color in my collection already but it's still beautiful nonetheless. I used 2 coats to make it opaque.
A Lit-Teal Bit Of Love. I thought this was a foil when I looked at the bottle, but when I applied it, I noticed it's a micro blue glitter in a matching blue base. It was a lot thinner than I expected and didn't act like a foil at all. I still only needed 2 coats which is always nice.

A Million Sparkles. This was the show stopper in the collection for me. It has a clear base with micro blue glitter, medium hex gold glitter, tiny blue bar glitter and medium fuchsia bar glitter. The fuchsia glitter is a lot larger than other bar glitters so that it's more obvious within the sea of blue. I like that it doesn't look messy which can happen with bar glitters sometimes. This is a must have for the glitter fanatic, lol. I used 1 coat over A Lit-Teal Bit of Love.

So there you are. All of the polishes are pretty but my favorites from the collection are Shoot For The Maroon and A Million Sparkles. I may have dupes for A Lit-Teal Bit of Love and Vio-let's Talk About Red but they are still nice and worth checking out if you don't own similar colors.

The new line will be available starting January 2012 in the US at CVS, Harmon, HEB, Rite Aid, Sears, Stage Stores, Target, ULTA and Walmart as wel as,, and In Canada, lacquers will be retailed at $10.99 at Jean Coutu, Loblaw, Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart Canada.
