NOTD: Nicole by OPI All is Glam, All is Bright

Nicole by OPI has been on a roll lately as far as I am concerned. Their Target exclusive fall collection was stunning for the most part and their new Target Exclusive Kardashian holiday collection (I know I cringe at the idea of giving that family a cent of my money but cannot.resist.gravitational.pull.of. awesome.polish!!!) has a few gems too. When   I saw this beauty in the store, I absolutely had to have it. People meet All is Glam, All is Bright:

Itty bitty adorable little nano glitters make this polish up--I see red and silver and baby blue. Absolutely stunning--like a christmas ball in a bottle. When on the nail, the polish almost gives off a sort of lavender hue but all the individual glitter colors are still discernable and the red just pops out so beautifully. This polish is definitely unique and gorgeous and the absolute must-have of the Holiday collection if you ask me. 

The formula takes a little coaxing. I applied 3 thin coats to reach opacity and there was a bit of balding and dragging involved. I applied a coat of Gelous before finishing with Seche Vite because the polish had a slight grittyness to it by itself. Also, alone, the polish dries fairly matte so if you want smooth shinyness you're gonna have to work a little for it but in the end it is sooooo worth it.

Have you picked up any of Nicole by OPI's recent offerings? They really have been impressing me lately!! It's hard to find unique polishes to add to your collection when your stash is 1000+ bottles strong, but Nicole keeps hooking me up!


  1. I have to say you have fantastic taste in nail polishes :D Having looked though your blog, the colours are all amazing, though this one's my favourite. I've yet to try OPI polish, I've been in a bit of a Nails Inc mood lately haha, but excited to try it after seeing this lovely result.

    My first visit and definitely not my last.
    I'm following you on GFC, would love it if you checked out my blog too, and maybe follow if you like it?

    Stay in touch.


    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and checking me out. OPI is certainly addictive. Nails Inc is one of the few polish companies that I have yet to try...but it's only a matter of time, I'm sure lol. Gonna hop over to your blog now and check it out. Thanks again! :)
