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

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?
