Nicole By OPI "Kim-Pletely in Love" Swatch + Review

 five coats, natural light

I am slowly working my way through all the Kardashian Kolors Nail Polish Collection. I didn't think I was going to like this polish--and it had nothing to do with the fact that Kim is my least favorite Kardashian sister. Okay, maybe it did. But once I put it on I saw how pretty it is. It is a beautiful baby pink shade. So natural. But not easy. This polish took SO many coats. I wrote about that it took five coats but I honestly don't know. I lost count after four and I'm just guessimating. It was a challenge.

It is easier to see in this swatch but this color has the most subtle blue shimmer to it. It isn't too obvious but it is a special little accent to a color that I've seen before. I added a top coat and this color NEVER dried. I know it is because I applied so many coats but even after five or six hours it was still semi-wet. It was impossible for me not to mess up my nails. I changed the color the next day.

I don't think that that was a problem with a formulation, I just know from experience that many light pink nail polishes are extremely sheer and require a ton of coats. I just would recommend using a product like OPI's Drip Dry or make sure that each coat is dry before applying the next one. Nicole by OPI polishes retail for around $7 at Wal-Mart or which makes them a cheaper option than many other shades that are very similar from Essie or OPI. It is a beautiful and more affordable option. Just be careful during application.

  1. So sweet colour!

  2. 5 coats seems like a lot! Not too sure I have the patience for that! Looks great though!
