Wheel Q7: Glitters from Nicole by OPI and OPI

I've probably mentioned before that I have an uncomfortable relationship with NOPI polishes. For a long time, I didn't have any in my stash because the bottle shape unsettled me, then someone sent one as a swap extra and I tried it and liked it and that started me down a slippery slope. I've since bought many NOPIs, including ones from collections tied to celebrities it makes me feel a bit iffy having anything to do with as an intelligent and (somewhat) mature woman, like Justin Bieber and the Kardashians. Obviously self control is not my strong suit when it comes to pretty polish.

(all have topcoat added, some could have used more than one coat)

1. Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S-kylie (3 coats) [multi-glitter? I'm buying it.]
2. Nicole by OPI Make a Comet-ment (3)
3. Nicole by OPI Look at Me Look at Me (2)
4. Nicole by OPI Fabulous is My Middle Name (3) [the sparkly silver microglitter makes all the bar glitter quite tolerable]
5. Nicole by OPI My Sleigh's in the Shop (3)
6. Nicole by OPI I Pink I Love Him (3)
7. Nicole by OPI Wear Something Spar-kylie (2)

18. Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk (2) [very Karen-colored]

Destash notes: Hard to say what I can give up without doing a full survey of what I have from other brands. If forced to pick five to keep right now, I'd go with 4, 8, 12, 17, and 18.


  1. Some really nice ones here. I really like 9 & 18 they are shouting to me :-D

  2. OMG So many pretty sparklies!! @_@ Mesmerizing.

  3. My absolute favorite is Sensational Scarlet!

  4. Great post dear! These are all so gorgeous!

  5. Beautiful glitters! Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles reminds me a lot of Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #114 :)

  6. 10 and 18... but there's more interesting polishes here :D

  7. Those NOPI polishes do not play well with my nail racks, but they're pretty good polishes so I keep 'em around.
