Nail Polish Review: Nicole by OPI Kardashian Collection "Kim-Pletely In Love"

Well, we all know Kim Kardashian isn't Kim-Pletely in love anymore, at least not with her soon-to-be ex-husband. But at least she made a pretty nail polish out it. This shade is a nice sweet pale pink with very fine (blue-ish green-ish) microshimmer and is the very first K-Dash nail polish I've purchased from line. The main reason for my lack of interest in the K-Dash colors has been my overall lack of interest for the Nicole by OPI brand. I purchased one from the line about five years ago and the formula sucked and it chipped instantly. I never purchased another. What can I say, I can hold a mean grudge. But enough time has passed that I figured I'd give it another go.

I really love how this polish looks in natural lighting that is conducive for showing off that pretty shimmer. But since I can't stand outside all day, I have to succumb to the fact that its basically just another average pale pink polish that needs at least 3-4 coats to be opaque. The weird thing is I would add a third coat and it would look great but then it would dry down and look like I needed another coat. So I would put on a fourth coat and the same thing would happen only this time I would just accept it and move on. I tried to find a picture that captured that fine iridescent shimmer in the polish because all of my photo-taking attempts were unsuccessful but you still can't really see the actual colors of the shimmer. Oh well. Anyone try the new OPI Holland collection? I am thinking I want "I Don't Give a Rotterdam" & "Vampsterdam", the rest look pretty resistible.

  1. I love this color. I picked it up last week and I haven't changed my manicure since. I use about 5 coats to get it really opaque and flawless, but the layers dry so quickly that it doesn't really matter... and man alive! Does this stuff wear well... it's fantastic!!
