Nicole by OPI New Lacquers for 2013 Swatches & Review

Nicole by OPI New 2013 Shades

Nicole by OPI is launching four new shades for 2013 this month and I’ve got the details and pics!

Two of these are kind of classic pink and red shades and two are deep shimmery vampy shades. Really nice formula with all four of these. All were very saturated with just two coats. Yahoo!

Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink bottle

Still Into Pink

Still Into Pink is a super bright blue-based pink with shimmer. Nearly neon! This one does dry matte, but a top coat makes it nice and shiny. Pretty and vibrant summery shade for those scorching hot days sitting by the pool while sipping a margarita whilst on vacation in Fiji…Oh am I dreaming again?

Nicole by OPI  Please Red Cycle bottle

Please Red-cycle is a bright cool-toned red creme. Super shiny, super bright, classic red shade. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either here. :)

Nicole by OPI Plum To Your Senses bottle

Plum To Your Senses!

Plum To Your Senses! is a deep purple with brighter purple, blue and pink shimmer. Really lovely shade but there was a weird issue at first. Most of the shimmer had settled at the bottom of the bottle, so it was really watery and runny at first. Then I shook the bottle up really well and it became much thicker and opaque.

Nicole by OPI Totally In The Dark Bottle

Totally In The Dark is a black with very fine silver shimmer. The base shade is a really nice deep black but doesn’t hide the shimmer. Great opacity and nice & shiny to boot.

Overall: I am happy to report that there weren’t really any issues with the formula or application of these four shades. I am especially loving Still Into Pink and Plum To Your Senses! Are they all unique shades? Perhaps not, but all really nice either way.

Availability: Out this month at Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Kmart, Ulta, Duane Reade, etc.

Pricing: $7.99 for 0.5 oz.

Do you see any shades here you will be hunting for?

    Plum to Your Senses and Totally in the Dark look amazing!!! Can’t help it. Given the choice I’d almost always reach for darker shades :)

    Totally loving “Still Into Pink”! I love that one!

    • January 17, 2013

      Ditto! Lots of people seem to love it.

    Still into Pink is traffic stopping! I’ll admit though I only feel “meh” about the other three, hopefully NOPI comes out with some cool lines this year. I felt like they did a really good job with the Selena Gomez and Modern Family collections. Now my expectations are a bit higher for this brand. 😉

    • January 17, 2013

      They do have the potential to come out with some amazing shades, I hope they keep ’em coming this year also.

  • January 17, 2013

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Still Into Pink. Nothing overly exciting but it’s pretty!

    • January 17, 2013

      Agreed :)

    Squee! Plum To Your Senses is divine. ^_^

    Oooh, that purple is amazing!

    • January 17, 2013

      Very pretty indeed.

  • January 17, 2013

    Wow, that’s pink is BRIGHT! The blue/purple color reminds me of OPI Ink, don’t you think?

      It kinda does though I haven’t looked at my OPI Ink in a long time. Used to be one of my very favs!

  • January 17, 2013

    I love all of them! I think the pink is my favorite though.

    Weirdly enough for me, I have to join the hordes who like the pink best. :-)

    These are beautiful colors, and I’d go with Please Red-cycle. It’s such a bright and gorgeous red shade.

    The pink looks like a dupe for Orly Flirty, I’d be curious as to how they compare.

      Rose

      It reminded me of Cream Pink by Sinful Colors. Despite the name, it does have shimmer running throughout.

  • January 17, 2013

    I know it looks barbie-doll’ish but I love Still in Pink. I just can’t get enough of pink polishes.

  • January 19, 2013

    It’s so dumb that I don’t own any Nicole by OPI because I hate the shape of the bottles. I need Still Into Pink!!
