Nicole by OPI Texture Coats Spring 2012 - Swatches and Review

Nicole by OPI
announces the launch of four new limited edition Texture Coat hues: Opal, Quartz, Amethyst and Aquamarine. This line of graffiti-style nail art products offers a simple way to create an edgy, two-texture effect on nails with quick at home application.

Amethyst Texture
over That's Totally Red-ical. This was my favorite combination! The amethyst is gorgeous over the bright pink.
Aquamarine Texture over Purple Yourself Together. Another cute combination. Aquamarine looks sky blue over light purple.
Opal Texture over Di-vine is Divine. Opal is a clear iridescent texture topcoat clear enough to allow the base color to show through it. It has chameleon-like properties and will take on a different look depending on which base color you pair it with. I choose Di-vine is Divine and it looks more light purple/silver on top of it.

Quartz Texture
over Great Minds Pink Alike. Quartz is a very smokey pewter/pink that lightens when applied over a bright color. I paired it with Great Minds Pink Alike.

These were a lot of fun to work with. The directions state to apply them over dry polish but I applied them all over wet polish and still had good results. I paired all of the colors with the Nicole by OPI Target Spring 2012 Collection. For each texture polish I used 1 thick coat, except with Quartz, which needed a medium coat. I like that they are glitters and look really good in the sun or under artificial light. The Amethyst combination with pink is crazy cute! These are great for anyone who wants a fast and dramatic nail art look. Amethyst and Opal are my favorite from the set.

Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquers and Nail Treatments contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality. Opal, Quartz, Amethyst and Aquamarine Texture shades will be available April 2012 for $7.99 each at select retailers including CVS, Duane Reade, Fred Meyer, HEB, Meijer, Sears and Target. In Canada, this line will be available for $10.99 each at select Jean Coutu, Loblaw, Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart Canada locations.

  1. Great review!! I liked all of them but my favorite was the first one.

    1. Its my favorite also. It give a little something extra without being too dramatic.

  2. I really like how glittery these are!! I kinda wish they were just normal glitters.

    1. They are really bright! Amethyst & Aquamarine look great layered and more like regular glitters. I'll try to post a picture later.
