On the nail, the shimmer is fairly subtle, though in brighter lighting the pink does pop. These swatches are two coats, no top coat.
I noticed that this Nicole looked similar to one of the new Sinful Colors, Zeus.
On the nail, there is a slight difference; the shimmer particles in the Sinful look smaller to me and perhaps a touch less pink, and the base color appears a hair lighter in most conditions, though in others it seems darker, so I'm declaring Zeus a perfectly fine alternative to Back to Reality TV, especially since it's about six dollars cheaper. (Zeus also has the advantage of having no punctuation in its name; I've been leaving out the ellipsis between Reality and TV for the NOPI).
What do you think? Close enough that one person doesn't need both? If so, which would you choose? Would you take the NOPI if it were free?
